Men’s Winter League 2024

Despite the course being closed all day Friday and Saturday due to the frost, a creditable 41 scores were recorded this week in the league. Congrats to the four Category prize winners above – some truly great scoring given the conditions. 

The league is one-third of the way through the qualifying period and, thus far, the weather has been as good as could be expected. In total, 153 scores have been recorded so far, which is bang on track for the overall total of 425 scores needed by the end of qualifying. 3 dedicated players have already reached the total of 5 counting scores and will no doubt spend the rest of qualifying trying to improve on these. On the other hand, 19 players are yet to register any score, so it is time for these men to dust off the clubs and get scoring for their teams as soon as possible.

Finally, in relation to the team leaderboard, Team Q had a great week and jumped into a substantial lead on 333 points. Two teams, including Team Q, have 13 of their 25 scores recorded already and two more have 12 scores. Best of luck to all players and teams for week 5!
