ALAN Pearman carded a superb 43 points to show the rest of the Playgolf Colchester members a clean pair of heels in the greenkeepers day competition.

Gary Upson was second with 41 points ahead of Peter Quilty who was third on countback from Martin Kilbey, after both players carded 40 points.

Carol Farrance won the ladies prize with a superb 39 points.

The annual, non-qualifying competition saw the use of difficult black flag positions.

Players can elect to go for the black flag positions for double points.

However, with the pins positioned on the steepest slopes available, on the greens of nine and 15, this can make for great amusement among the players should they misjudge any putts.

Club Captain Rob Cornish said: “Thank you all for supporting the day - I know that the greenkeepers appreciate it."

Will Elder (12) took the honours again in Playgolf Colchester Seniors Medal competition.
