Monday 2 nd September The Seniors team visited the lovely course at Elton Furze today. The course was in great condition and the weather. The only detrimental comment heard was “There are too many ###### trees “. In the main everyone seemed to enjoy the hospitality the golf and the excellent meal. The only down was that we went down by 4 to 2. Captain reported ……. There was a NTP on the 15th. Elton’s captain fired first and flew left over a huge hedge, a distance into the field beyond. His partner then fired into a thicket on the right - ball lost. I fired directly into the hedge on the left and Simon followed their captains lead but went further! So, all four players were three off the tee, never witnessed that before. A lovely value for money meal followed and Stuart Butler won NTP. oooOOOooo

Thursday 5 th September Numbers were low for the roll up today as a large number of the section attended the funeral of John Bremner. It was great to see such a large contingent at the crematorium to say goodbye to such a popular member of the section. His daughter commented that “he would have been embarrassed by the numbers”. Many also made their way to “The Bull” at Market Deeping for the wake. For the 22 members who turned up for golf Andrew Boyce organised an individual stableford competition. The results were: First place with 38 points ……. John Rudin. 2 nd place with 34 points ……… Pete Kelleher. 3 rd place with 32 points a.c.b. ……. Derrick Bell. oooOOOooo Top of page
