Saturday 10th July started off bright and sunny with nearly every available tee slot booked and everyone’s expectations high. Scott and his team, along with several helpers from the membership, had set the course up beautifully.
As is tradition, the Captain provided a drinks tent with food and drinks on the 9th and Dave, Deborah and the gang were ready to greet the golfers and their families as they finished.
Everything was set for a great day’s golf – if only the weather would be kind. The early starters got the best of it with some very heavy rain showers rolling through in the afternoon.
Despite the rain, some great scores were posted.
The result was very close with the result being decided by a card play-off:-
1st Place James Wall 79 – 14 for 65 (27 back 9)
2nd Place Chris Mannion 89 – 24 for 65 (30 back 9)
3rd Place Steven Rimmer 81 – 16 for 65 (31 back 9)
Lowest Gross Craig Hurley 70
Past Captains and Directors Prize Ian Thompson 76 – 8 for 68
Thank you to those who served refreshments in the drinks tent, to Deborah and the bar staff, and to Dave and the catering staff. Thanks go also to all the greens staff and their helpers, and to the Directors and other members who made the day such a success!
