Seven hearty men and five lady members awoke this morning, looked at the grey and rainy skies outside and were tempted skip Golf midweek today to go back to bed!
However, their stoic nature was rewarded with the skies clearing and the course in surprisingly good condition after the 11mm of rain that fell overnight.
Bob Glenister (8) blitzed the Men with an excellent 80 off the stick for a net 72 (28 putts). Neil Peterson (15) and Peter Johnson (15) had nett 75’s but Neil was runner-up on countback, Jeff Aurisch beat Bob on countback for the Putting Comp and Bob took out NTP. Russ Wealands played as though the conditions were shocking to take out the Club Award.
Vicki Clements lead the Ladies in with a fine 73 winning both the Monthly Medal and 4th Round of Silver Spoon. Adrianne Anglin 75 was Runner Up. Miranda Gill with just 27 putts showed the girls how to play on the short stuff.
The Footjoy Rep was kept busy measuring up the souls of players and Members who took the ‘stay in bed – come for lunch’ option …and taking orders for 15 pair of Footjoy Golf Shoes and other golf accessories. Thanks to all for contributing to a great lunch featuring beautiful home made soup – just what was needed after a gruelling day (for your scribe anyway!),
Thanks to Gary Pollard for arranging this visit by Footjoy – both a valuable service for Members (30% discount) and small, but also an important fund raiser for our Club.
