In Summer like conditions, on Sunday, 1 November the men's Jock Stewart team, captained by Simon Hawkins, took on a very strong ladies Grace Norman team, Captained by Linda Kelsey, for the John Brown Trophy.
The format, Foursomes off scratch, and with the standard of golf from all concerned being high, led to some very close fought matches with the men's Jock Stewart side coming out eventual winners 3-1.
Captains Kieran O'Reilly and Helen Porter were on hand to present Simon with the trophy.

Fitness Tip Of The Week From Spartans!
Most people believe that it is our upper body that needs to be stronger to hit the ball further.
If you look at the relation of muscle size of your shoulders and arms compared to your chest, back, and glutes (your bum) you will quickly see that the bigger muscle groups can generate a much more powerful swing. Strengthening these muscle groups will also help to sort out any weak or dead spots throughout your swing, giving you a smother, cleaner and more powerful overall swing
Winter is the perfect time to work on these muscle groups and can be added into any normal day routine.
Try this simple body weight workout to help get you started.
