Yesterday 15 Mid-Week men made their way to Levin Golf Club in very testing wet weather conditions. They decided to play 9 holes and pack it in if the rain got heavier, but the weather gods were on their side and after 9 holes the rain stopped and the sun appeared, so 18 holes were completed. They play on a home and away bases and as this was the first leg with the second leg to be played at Te Marua on February 21st.

Some notable scores among the Team were Peter Stone and Wayne Turner with 40 Stableford.points, Pat Williams 39 and Alex Ross with 37. Overall result was Te Marua 32.8 and Levin with 35.27, however, it was a great day of rivalry and they were well looked after by their hosts. The fairways and greens were in excellent condition.
