Unfortunately, there was poor weather for the first time at Heswall Golf Day. Although some players retired before the 18th there was plenty of enthusiasm at the 19th.

The winner Trevor Mathew-Jones scored a splendid 39 points. The runner up was Jon Morgan and 3rd was Keith Housley. As a special gesture, those who completed the course in the wet conditions were awarded a new golf ball.

Thanks to Brian N. Jones for organising the day.                                                         Golf winners June 2016.JPG
