It was good to be out on the coarse once more, and 63 members took advantage of the fine weather to get out and stretch their legs after the dreadful week of continuous rain we have just suffered. It was a less taxing team game today a pleasant game of Texas Scramble. Just the job for getting back into the swing. Captains Notices. 1. Played with Maurice today, once again his buggy refused to go. Hang my head in shame …… it was my fault. It does help if the machine is in gear. 2.

Captains comments of the day were: We managed to escape most of the wet weather today, in fact it started to rain as Vice and I arrived at the 18th green! We had already won our end, so debunked. We sadly lost a keenly fought match by three and a half to two and a half. Highlights of the day. Ali Scott played away, not at home. Bill Murray got the right course. Reg Parker was not last arriving. Andrew Boyce turned up! Andrew Boyce had a violent fight with his errant buggy on the ninth green when it overturned and Stuart's comments were not well received. A very good days golf on such a pretty, challenging course. oooOOOooo Thursday 20th June We seem to have returned to normality with the weather, able to get out twice in a week without getting wet. The course seems to have enjoyed the soaking it has received and is beginning to look a picture. The format for today’s roll up was the old favourite “2 from 3”, in which 39 members took part. Scoring on the whole seemed a little lower than normal for this format but we did have run-away trio who dovetailed very nicely to table a winning score of 82 points, this was six points clear of the second placed group. Today’s winners with 82 points. Best front 9 with 19 points ……… Ray Caley. Best back 9 with 20 points ……… Mick Miller. Summer Knockout Competition results. Singles. Phil Davis beat Keith Wright to reach round 3. John Crossley beat Pete Chippendale to reach round 3. Barry Malthouse beat Andrew Counsell and now meets Jim Ashworth in round 3. Doubles. Bob Matthew & John Hastings beat Stewart Hatch & Reg Parker and now meet Alan Bainbridge and Ian Rice in the Quarter Finals. oooOOOooo Top of page
