SWINTON Park Golf and Country Club saw the hard work of the green staff in battling heavy morning rain pay off to provide a fine course for the competitive Four Man Team competition after a delayed start.

The event was sponsored by Ian Singleton, of Glenmuir, and was enjoyed by a full field of teams.

Top of the shop with 90 points were the quartet from Leigh Golf Club led by Mark Riley with Dan Crook, Andy Potter and Rob Ainscough all playing their part.

They edged out the strong home team of J Pearson, P Crowden and A Leigh, led by pro Dave Smith, by a point.

Next in were Tim Maxwell’s team of J Stanley, Mobi Rawthore and A Butt with 87.

Maxwell led in the individual pro competition with 40 points, two more than Dave Smith and Mark Smith Stamford.
