Melton Mowbray Golf Club staged a Greens Day competition, open to all members, to raise funds for forthcoming greens projects.

The heavy rain put off some players from taking part, but many gave their entry fee as a donation to the greens.

Phil Millward took third position with 36 points.

Scott Cartwright scored 39 points to win Division Two, while Tim Mortimer was two adrift in second place, and third-placed Anthony Bostock was close behind on 36 points.
