Winter greens in operation

Bouncy balls were the order over the weekend with a hard frost remaining throughout. Because of the frost, winter greens were in operation and the gully holes were out of action. Despite this there were a number of excellent scores in both singles and doubles sections. In the singles George Innes topped the leaderboard with 39 points with Stuart Paul one stroke behind. Duncan Cursiter and Ian Smith were both on 37 points.
