Away Match v St?Enodoc — Friday March 10

St?Enodoc 4.5

Bowood 3.5

BOWOOD made the short journey to near rivals St Enodoc only to be sent home with little joy after being beaten by just a point.

There was plenty of well behaved banter amongst old friends and some welcome well behaved weather to make the day even more enjoyable.

The nearest the pin contest for Bowood at the par 3, 5th hole was won by Chris Woolley while the Par 3 15th was won by St?Enodoc’s captain for the day, Des Kelly.
