2016 Spring Cup Results

See the attached for the Gross and Net results (or see them on the FFG site). As usual the Lavelles 'done good', picking up two first prizes! Together with James Moore, Patrick and James achieved a nice one-two in the 2nd Series (Net) Men; James was 1st in the gross. Alex Murphy featured well, coming second in the 1st Series gross and equalling Alison's 35 net (the highest SAC score) to come third in the 1st Series Net. For GolfBag, the highlight of the day has to be Dimitri Ansart's Gross and Net 36 - well with a handicap of -.3, "c'est normal!"; considering how practically everyone else struggled with the wind, an excellent effort - 2 birdies and 2 bogies for a nice clean card! One wonders where his drive on the 6th was, since it wasn't the longest on the fairway (223m is only half way to the hole), but still one of Dimitri's birdie holes!

Jeanne Delacroix won the ladies second series net prize and Sue Hall came second in the ladies first series net in addition to winning the ladies longest drive competition.
