The gents versus juniors match took place recently with a very good turnout of fourteen players per side.
There were some close matches but some of the gents had to give away too many shots, notably Ian Osler giving 36 and Jack Yetton 24.
The juniors triumphed eight matches to six and then immediately went out on to the putting green to practice, leaving the gents to relax and reflect in the clubhouse.
