The winner was Jonathan and 2nd was Ruairi.
Congratulations to all the finalists who played throughout the winter
despite some poor weather.

The course set up was particularly tough which made Jonathan's winning
score of ten under quite extraordinary. It included two hole outs!

The first was from short of the bunker left at hole one to a back pin.
Number two was from a downslope twenty yards right over the bunker at hole
Ruairi fought hard and halved the tenth in birdie from the bunker.
All five players displayed their prowess from the six bunkers in play.
