Golf course tips
One of our PGA teaching professional's and Lombard Trophy finalist Adrian Hill shares a few tips and strategies that may help you when playing the third hole:
Hole 3 - Par 5 - 506 yards - SI 1
"The third hole can cause many problems for golfers and it is stroke index one for a reason - there is a great deal of trouble all the way up the hole, but I am sure that with the right strategy and club selection it is possible for any golfer to par this hole.
On the tee I want your focus to be on a specific spot in the fairway - it might be a tree in the distance or the corner of a bunker or just pick a spot in front of your ball to aim your shot over, but rather than just aiming to hit the fairway you should be very positive with picking your target - this will really narrow your focus to hitting your target and it will also make you forget about any potential trouble from the tee. Once you have picked a specific target you want to use a club that will get you around 200-220 yards down the fairway to leave you on the flat part of the third fairway, I normally just use a 4 iron off the tee to play for position.
If your tee shot goes wrong and you find yourself out of position don't be a hero even if it means chipping your ball out on to the flat part of the fairway you can then carry on with your game plan. The second shot is again all about position, just like the tee shot I want you to pick a target up the right side of the fairway and use enough club that will get you over the gully that runs down the left side of the fairway. Again if you pick a specific target spot you will be surprised how accurate your shots can be, once you have hit the fairway with your second shot you should have around 100 yards to the green for your approach.
Make sure you check if the flag is on the front or back level of the green, this will affect your club selection, and again the focus should be on the right part of the green well away from the trouble on the left.
You won't hit the perfect shot every time but if you get into trouble just stick to your game plan and get yourself back into position and take your punishment - remember the third hole is stroke index one so even lowest handicappers are expected to bogey the hole more often than not!
The third hole again should be viewed from behind the green when you finish this gives you a different view of the hole and it may show areas where you could play the hole better next time, as ever let me know how you get on"

In second place was Kath Hough with 37 points and in third was Sandra Peake on 35 points. A mention also for Jean Clare who played really well and scored 41 points but unfortunately there was a mistake on her scorecard which meant she was disqualified, as a consolation her handicap has dropped two shots to 32.
