Must be dark at now.
Most of the early starters must be on holiday as so few turned up today. Only one three ball and the other two played a rolling stableford. There were thirty two in the later starters; eleven teams of three and again two for the rolling stableford. Much cooler today but dry, the course playing much longer as a result. Scores were very variable with a high of seventy five and eight birdies.
Elliot was out with the machine and spiking everywhere; looks like a very slow job. The promised new rough cutter has been ordered and in theory should reduce the time required by some sixty per cent allowing the greenstaff not only to grab an opportunity to cut on a dry day but also allow them the chance to catch up with other jobs. The holes in the car park, at least the larger holes are going to be filled up shortly and the electricians are rewiring and adding cable in the clubhouse for computers. All systems go.
1st George/Arnold/Ireland 75 points £15 2 birdies
2nd Dobson/Heath/Sutherland 73 12 1
3rd Stone/Lyford/D.Denning 72 6 2
Usual handicap reductions apply for the first two places.
Birdies also for:- Hilson/Hunt/Forster 1, White/Young/Dean 1, Davis/England /Chance 1. Birdies are each worth £1.80 per team.
Four members played the rolling stableford with John MacOmish top scoring with 34 point.
