Falmouth Golf Club`s Winter League competition ended in something of an anti-climax on Saturday as the final round had to cancelled, having previously been postponed as much of the course was under water again, writes Keith Rashleigh.

The presentation was followed by a celebration of St Patrick's Day with special offers of Guinness etc in the club house provided by the management.

* Due to ice and snow the Budock Vean weekend competitions were cancelled. However, earlier in the week the Seniors had a good turnout for their Winter League game played in almost Spring-like conditions. The winner was David Gibbons on 39 pts, the runner-up was Alan Mills with 38 pts and in third spot on 36 pts was Rob Bryant. One can only feel sorry for the greenkeepers whose best efforts continue to be dashed by our intemperate weather.
