Links golfers retain trophy

THE Links Country Park C team retained the Norfolk Senior Nines Trophy for the third time last Friday.

Eight teams took part from The Links, RAF Marham, Mundesley, Mattishall and Ryston Park – a stableford competition with the best five of six scores to count.

The wind and rainy weather held off until the second nine and it did affect the scoring after that. In the end, The Links C team won by a comfortable margin of 17 points.
