After the high of the Society Championship we got back into the swing of the regular season at Old Padeswood, although considering the weather it felt as though we were still on the Costa Del Sol…well we were in Wales after all!
There was a healthy turn out this month with 27 players on the day which consisted of 24 members and 3 guests, one of the highest so far this season. Due to the warm weather and amount of players play was a little slow, however as most people were in four balls i don’t think there were too many complaints.
The course was fair but could have done with a bit of a trim around the tee boxes and greens which appeared to be slower than would be expected of a venue at this time of year, but as they say, we’re all playing the same course. Scoring was around average for the year with a good portion of players on 30 or more points, the course was very risk/ reward with a lot of hazards so the scores varied quite significantly.
The winner played a solid round (very strange writing this about yourself!) and came in with a score of 41 points to win by 6 shots, well done me (Andy Davies).
The spoon was a more tightly run race and was won by 1 shot with 17 points.
