Yet again we could count ourselves lucky, the weather was perfect, so much so after a few holes i wish I’d decided to bring my shorts! The course looked in great shape (other than the practice green), ready to accommodate 27 holes worth of competition.
The morning Texas Scramble provided a good challenge with the majority of groups between +1 & -1 gross however the winning group came in well clear of the rest on -4 for a much deserved victory.
The main competition proved to be a much more closely run race with neither a back 9 (21 each) or back 6 (12 each) hole count-back separating the top two. The win eventually came via a 1 shot margin in a final 3 hole count-back (7 vs. 6) and 39 points in total, congratulations go to the new Captain, Lee Hardy. Lee now see’s his handicap drop to a desperately low 8.5, still too high based on recent form!
This month marked the end of my captaincy, thanks to Evan and Bill for all they’ve done over the last 12 months, just as you’ve done for captains before and hopefully after me.
