l In the recent match against Stoke Albany, North Luffenham seniors avenged their only defeat so far this season coming out on top 4-2. The major feature of the contest was North Luffenham member Alan Barwell achieving a hole-in-one at the 141-yard par three.

Alan, 70, of Stamford, is not particularly a big hitter, but achieved this magnificent feat on the 16th using his trusty three wood, even though all his group at the time thought his drive had gone through the green.

Results were Malcolm Hird/Don Lambert halved, Ken Jones/Alan Barwell halved, Alan Swindley/Jim Ashworth won 3&1, Stan/Chris Lee lost 3&2, Steve Moss/Alan Smith won 3&2, Charles Cade/David Scotchmer won 5&4.

l In the Sunday medal for June, Dave Baxter was the outstanding winner scoring 65 points, earning him a 2 stroke reduction in his handicap to 17. Runner-up was Mark Branson scoring 70 (off 23) with Jim Ashworth third on 73 (off 13).
