The secretary raised his hand and admitted to “cocking up” after the mass confusion caused by the order of play, however it didn’t deter the 22 who turned up who were treated to a fine course and great weather on the day. The course had a well-protected parkland layout with tall trees lining most holes. With a pleasant par 5 to start, this course felt longer than most and rewarded accuracy off the tee and strong approach play (as per most courses!). There were a number of challenging holes with raised greens however on the whole the course was fair. The club provided great hospitality which was very helpful for the annual AGM, a separate article will follow with a summary of the discussions had. Shout out to Phil.D for persisting with shorts! Holding on to every last bit of summer.
Although there were a number of strong performances one of our more decorated members did his usual trick of tearing up the course which was epitomised by two 2’s. With a winning score of 40 points (off 13!), well done Josh Hadden….soon enough I’m sure you’ll find a handicap that represents your general level of play however before that you’ll have to keep upsizing that trophy cabinet!
The spoon was won with 17 points, 3 clear of the closest competitor.
There were a number of matchplay ties on the day, the results of which can be found at Round 1.
Thanks to Mike.B and Bill.C for the write up albeit with some slight paraphrasing from myself.
