The first Monthly Medal of the 2011 season took place in ideal conditions at the weekend. It may have been a baptism of fire to be playing strokeplay off the blue stakes with summer rules but that is the kind of challenge that a medal competition is all about. Golfer of The Year points were also on offer for this event (as they are for all monthly medals) and the top 8 players get their start on the league table which can be viewed on the club blog – Click here to view.
