The Spring Golf Weekend featured a visit to Dieppe last weekend, 26th-28th April. The Saturday competitions, the Kiwi Cup and Dean Trophy featured a win for the course and the weather over the 18 participants - the competitions were reduced to 9 holes although some brave souls did complete 18! Sunday's scramble was played under better conditions and the sun even appeared occasionally!
