Meanwhile, Mark Smith, course manager at Phoenix Golf Club in Rotherham was the one of two lucky winners of a Helly Hansen waterproof jacket in Rigby Taylor’s recent crane fly recognition competition.

A very large number of entries were received and Mark’s was the first to be drawn from the many who correctly identified the image. The correct answer to the competition question was ‘crane fly eggs’. The other winner was Laura Sayer-Hall, at Ardfin Golf Club, Isle of Jura, Scotland.
