Well it was raining when we left the bar and still raining when we got to the course although the cloud was high enough for us to think it would go away. After about 30 minutes it was decided to take the chance so out we went, we got in 3 holes before the heavens opened up and we were forced to shelter for about 30 minutes then it stopped and we didn’t get anymore and it turned into a good day.
The course even after so much rain and not being able to find too many dry spots was still in surprisingly good condition. The scoring wasn’t too bad either, winter rules applied with take a drop as close as you could to get relief from the wet fairways. With only a small field of 3 groups there was no pay out for twos much to chagrin of our long lost friend Dave Bramley just in from the UK who managed to get two of them he got a beer instead. Taking 3rd place today was Lloyd Shuttleworth playing off his 4 handicap and scoring 34 points, Graham Beaumont just got over the line with a fine 35 points to take 2nd, but it was the Captains day today Bob Philp with just 22 putts scoring 42 points to take line honours.
