RUTLAND County’s Spring Open Am-Am proved a popular event with local golfers and the warm, still conditions were a bonus as the course showcased spectacular early-season form.

Mike Powell and his team of Simon Homer, Robin King and Charles Cade roared to victory with exactly 100 points, just ahead of Jim Wilson, Michelle Powell, Jordan Paylor and Kevin Moxham on 98. Bob Ambrose’s irresistible early season form led his team of Martin Gatehouse, Paul Ramm and Clive Knox to third on 92 pts. Sheila Mayman, Judy Cade, Jordan Paylor and Josh Paylor were nearest the pins.

The Yellow Peril was won by Club Champion Ollie Freckingham and his team of Cliff Knapp, Roger Overton and Andy Vernon with 87 points. Winter Doubles champions this season are the formidable pairing of Chris Palmer and Craig Allan who cruised to a comfortable victory by 3 and 2.

The last Senior Winter Classic is set for Monday with all senior golfers with a handicap welcome.
