John Emerson Greensome Sunday 24th April 2016
The prestigious John Emerson Greensome has been won by Ray Flook & Karl Bowler. John was Rookery Park's first Secretary, and his daughter Mary still keeps in contact from the Lake District and always sends a good luck card prior to the competition. Ray & Karl's score of 39 points could have been even better in the cold winter-like conditions, they failed to score on the 8th, and could only manage a single point of the 9th (their last hole). Runners-up with 38 points were Craig Bloodworth & Graham Garrod, they just edged third placed Fred Bush & Alan Soanes on a count back. Fourth place went to Bo Bidle & Mick Dolan, they edged Andy Coleman & Dwayne Barber on a count back after both pairs had scored 37 points.
