What a lovely day for a round of golf…
….we were treated to some relatively dry weather until the turn when the heavens opened, there wasn’t even much time to put your waterproofs on such was the speed of the onslaught. I can’t remember being on a golf course in such heavy rain for a long time. On the bright side there was some stunning rainbows which seemed to be on every horizon thanks to the extremely changeable weather.
Due to both the changeable conditions and sheer amount of rain the going was tough and ultimately, the round slow. The course itself was in relatively good nick with decent fairways and tee boxes however the greens had suffered from foot fall on soft ground and patches of overgrowth making putting a little bobbly, but as they say, it’s the same for everyone!
There were 25 members on the day, only 6 of which managed to break 30, and with the median at 26, the joint lowest in the last 2.5 years, I don’t know how the top two managed to break away and score as they did. The winner by a single shot coming in with a terrific 39 points was Evan Bale. Well done Evan!
