River Belt Open winners Nick Moraitis and John Wilson.


Summer Cup Knock-Out Final

Congratulations to Rob Board and Trevor Reed who defeated Gizmo Jacobs and Darren McCormick 2 up.

As expected it was a very close match with the result in the balance until the last couple of holes. In the end the victors were just to steady and with a solid last hole have their names on the cup.
