On Sunday 4th March our two surviving Pennants Teams again travelled to Leura to replay last week’s washed-out round. This was the final day of the Round-Robin series. We did not fare well. Our Seniors team lost 4.5-1.5 and our Kortum Shield Team lost 2-1. So, this year we went without a Pennants trophy. Still, it was an enjoyable and competitive season with most players itching to return to do battle next year.
Our course remains in excellent condition.
