Stoke Rochford Golf Club seniors entertained Kibworth seniors on a dry but blustery day.
The opposition brought their strongest possible side with a view to breaking their duck at Stoke.
They came very close to achieving this goal with four of Stoke’s winning pairs going to the last hole in a four-and-a-half to three-and-a-half home victory.
