THE SPRING Meeting at Falmouth Golf Club on Friday attracted a huge turnout, writes Keith Rashleigh.

Played in teams of three with two scores to count, the triumvirate of Ben Browning, Dave Holland and Richie Perrin combined superbly to total 82 points, 40 and 42, to win by two from Paul Collins, Steve Robbins and Nick Morrison, 40 and 40.

At the presentation of prizes, director of the club Steve Burrows said he was delighted to welcome over 140 golfers to the Spring Open.

He thanked Newells Travel for their sponsoring of a £5,000 holiday for a hole in one on the fifth which was almost won by two players who were both within 15 inches of the pin.

Burrows also thanked Club members Harold Jefferies, Peter Brierley, Wynne Woolcock, Brenda Arch, Jo Munday and Debi Hall who kindly volunteered for a variety of tasks to ensure the day went smoothly.
