Finally the summer kicked in and we were blessed with a gloriously sunny day! With the smell of sun cream in the air and a good amount of white legs on show the society set out to conquer the course, or at least try! The course was in very good condition with the only complaint being that some of the bunkers were a little on the hard side, can’t make it too easy though can they.
With the lowest turn out of the year (at 20) we had 5 fourballs meaning the pace of play was a little slow however the weather was so good that i don’t think anyone really noticed.
Scoring was quite tightly packed with 15 players scoring between 26- 36. One member however manged to break clear of the pack to claim the win with a comfortable margin of 3 shots and total of 39, well done to Josh “the serial winner” Hadden (not particularly catchy I know). Josh can now claim to be FFGS’s joint lowest handicapper with a playing handicap of 10. Can his new handicap help him perform the same miracle as last time him won, losing the next event? Maybe best not turn up just in case?
We also had the last Matchplay semi final taking place with Mike Bower coming out on top 2&1. Finger crossed the final should be held at Stockport Golf Club between Mike B and Mike K, good luck to both.
