The new season is getting into full swing and the March Stableford is always one of the most popular of the year at Thetford.
This is because it raises funds for England Blind Golf and a cheque for £196 has been sent off after 80 players took part on Sunday.
So although a worthwhile charity was the big winner, Paul Waters also had a day to remember with 40 points off his handicap of 11 to win by two from Matt West (5). Third place went to 15-handicap Tom Green, who has been steadily improving his handicap as he completes his first full year at the club.
It is still all systems go for the members’ purchase of Thetford Golf Club. The whole sum has been covered by offers of loans from members combined with existing club funds.
This means the purchase is set to go ahead on April 6, combining with the Spring Open, the first of the club’s open events of the year. There are still a few places available for the Spring Open.
