The Leicestershire & Rutland Masonic Golfing Association rounded off the summer in glorious fashion with Guthlaxton Lodge No 7717 winning the Provincial Championship Golf meeting at Forest Hill Golf
Club on 11th September 2015.

Following a hiatus from entering the competition of a few years, with the last recorded win being in 1982, and before that as far back as 1977, the Guthlaxton Lodge team almost swept the board. The team consisted of W.Bro. Richard Powell, W.Bro. Paul Roberts, Bro. Darren McGowan and Bro. Carl Ackers.

Excellent rounds by Bro. Darren McGowan and Bro. Carl Ackers, supported strongly by the Master, W.Bro. Richard Powell, ensured that the score attained (the best three scores from 4) proved hard to beat.

Bro. Darren McGowan also won the Oliver Bowl in the individual competition with a Stapleford Score of 40 points with Bro. Carl Ackers coming third with a score of 37 points.

With Guthlaxton Lodge also winning the Inter-Lodge golf competition against Wyvern Lodge No.6167 and with
Bro. Carl Ackers winning the individual Lodge trophy, the table at their Festive Board will be adorned with an impressive amount of silverware.
