Inter-club match series tees off
FIRST blood has gone to Elsham in the club's new men's section match series against Woodall Spa.
The two clubs, both of which are more than 100 years old, hope to establish a regular series of matches against each other.
A friendship between an Elsham past president, Brian Eaton, and Woodall Spa past president John Bevan led to the contest teeing off.
Elsham's team came out on top on their home course in the first meeting, by four games to two. A return match will be held at the Hotchkin course later this year.
