Registration is open for the Redditch tournament on 8th May.

Lots of ace chances on this layout for players of all abilities.

We are hoping the visitor center cafe will open before the morning round, in negotiations at the moment.

Andrew Douse is tding and doing all the hard work on this one! he has a couple of extra holes to add which he is currently getting approval for with the council, all being weel we will play two loops of 11 holes in the morning and two in the afternoon. This will limit the field to at most 55 players so register soon to avoid disappointment!

Lunchtime event will be a ring of fire.

Big thanks to Andrew hosting another successful MODS event in the blazing sunshine. Well done everyone for navigating around the park drunks and other "interesting" characters on a crowded day.

Full results here - http://www.pdga.com/tour/event/27083
Finishing with a double OB 6, what a lovely way to go....

Ben Bicknell smashed it again - 927 for those two rounds feels a touch on the low side, i'm sure he was shooting solid 950 rated stuff. I would have called a 1000 rated round around 57/58 ish. Too many players improving faster than their ratings are going up!
