Seniors Exchange Day... a good day for new recruits!

Rock Hastings and Graeme MacDonald, two of the most recent recruits to Newark Golf Club’s Seniors’ section, were the principal winners at the Exchange Day at Beeston Fields GC on 17 June.

Conditions were difficult, with slippery greens, lush fairways and a strong wind.

Only Hastings and Chris Davies managed 36 Stableford points, with Hastings having the better back nine to collect the trophy and his prize. MacDonald, and his team of Trevor Harris, David Tucker and John Allen, won the team competition with 78 points. MacDonald also won the nearest the pin competition.

In all, 36 Seniors took part and a decent amount of money was raised for Beaumond House via a series of ‘silly’ fines.
