On Thursday 8th August, Melton Mowbray Golf Club hosted the Senior Men’s Open with a large field of 140 golfers turning out to compete in this prestigious event. The format for the day was a Stableford pairs competition with the best score of the pairings to count on each hole. With some excellent sunny weather and a course well manicured and prepped for the occasion, it was an opportunity for some good scoring and the resultant scores did not disappoint. The winners of the competition on the day were James Denny and Nick MacDonald of MMGC with an outstanding score of 46 pts. 2nd were David Stroud and Daryl Clater again from MMGC with 44 pts. 3rd place went to Richard Haines and Greg Ewar (Stoke Rochford GC). The whole day was also topped off by a superb hole-in-one by John Squires.
