What a difference from Wednesday

 
 
On a perfect golfing day, 26 golfers remembering first our friend Mike Cox, set out to play a four ball better ball. Although the course played well and the greens had almost recovered from the spiking they received recently, scores varied significantly from the very acceptable score of the winners to the “could do better”. There no early starters so excuses such as the earlies always win could not be made. However, it was noticeable that the first and second places were taken by the first two pairs out. Read what you like into that.

 

There were only five birdies from 468 holes played. Each birdie pays £2.60. The full results are as follows :

To play or not to play, that was the dilemma.

On arriving at the club today low cloud and some rain welcomed members for the two from three stableford. Some players elected not to go out as the rain increased and after coffee went home, some did but two teams decided to stop after four holes. Nobby was abandoned by his team mates out on the course but looked fairly philosophical about it all. At least it wasn’t cold.

Twenty eight members turned up and paid to play; twenty two finished. The greens were looking good with little water lying on them, the spiking having done what was required. There were only four birdies, the winning team getting three of them.

Today’s winners:-
1st White/Sutherland/B.Hodder                        68 points   £12   3 birdies
2nd Barrow/Pearce/ Phantom Pro                      68                  9   
3rd Rowland/Hollingsworth/MacOmish          63                  6

The remaining birdie was won by King/Pope/Mosser. Birdies are worth £3.30 per team.
The usual handicap reductions apply for the first two places.
