Eaton Seniors Open
On Thursday 9th May the Eaton Vets section entertained Senior members and visitors alike to compete for prizes in this annual event. There were 92 competitors 45 members and 47 visitors from various parts of East Anglia.
As usual there were two categories for members and visitors depending on age and as expected there were more older seniors than in the younger group. Tee times were off white tees and by using both the first and tenth tee all competitors started on time.
The course was in superb condition which was commented on by many of the players. Scoring on the day was mixed with a few high scores but mainly the scores were in the twenties.
The best score of the day was 41 points achieved by Ian Gorst who took the main prize as well as the Murrow Cup.
Our resident crooner, Les Trutch won the “OAP” category with 40 points
David Marshall won the “Young Pretenders” category with 36 points.
Of the visitors the 55-65 category was won by a regular visitor, Yim Kong from Nene Park (34 points),
the 66 and over category was won by Nick Brewer from Royal Norwich (36 points)
The day was marked by Neil Penning achieving a “hole in on” on the 13th.
In all it was a great day.
