It has been a busy month for golfers at Toft with exchange days and competitions coming thick and fast.
A group of 22 Toft ladies enjoyed a round of golf with a difference in their Exchange Day at Sleaford Golf Club organised by Vice-Captain Jean Parsons.
Wily Jean had devised a competition more taxing than straightforward stableford scoring and built in a system of adding, subtracting and dividing individual scores.
Top with the golf and the maths was the team of Lisa Gauci and Barbara Hare with a whopping total of 44 points.
In second place were Karen Parsonage and Louise Bradley on 39 on countback. Judith Frame and Judith Childs won the prize for the most points scored on the par three holes.
The annual Scotts Quaich event, popularly termed the Mr and Mrs competition, was played in fine and warm weather on a Toft course in very good condition with the greens a touch slower than usual.
Ten married couples took on the challenge of producing a harmonious combined tally of stableford points and scoring was very positive.
In third place were Sandra and Steve Wildmore on 68 just behind Cathy and John Lee who put together 69 points but the clear winning pair with 72 were Alison Ravenhill and Alex Nichol who also bagged the Nearest the Pin prizes donated by Joe and Mairead Scott who instigated the competition.
