The event immediately following the Society Championship can prove to be a bit of a slog and so Houghwood proved to be. The spectacular views out over the coast are a result of altitude and whilst the more sensible members choose one of the many buggies available the majority stuck to walking, a decision most would not make next time round!
There was a wisp of wind and with the light sprinkling of rain draining away down one of the many slopes the course itself was in very good condition. The topography also lead to some interesting shots with elevated fairways, greens and tee boxes throughout requiring good course management and distance control.
We had another strong turn out with a couple of late comers resulting in 25 members competing on the day. With a mean score of 28 in combination with 10 players reaching the 30 point mark the course could be described as fair and proved a good challenge for most. The “Bower-Davies” curse seemed to strike again only for controversy to ensue resulting in an eventual 2 point victory for Andy Davies.
