The veteran’s Thursday competition was a Texas Scramble – 3-man teams off one tenth of combined handicaps, 5 drives to be used from each player. Nineteen teams took part on a very chilly morning with a north east wind, a bit of a shock for those still playing in their shorts. The winning team with a score of 63.5 was that of Peter Marshall(8), David Inglesent(21) & Gil Roberts(25). In second place were Dougie Howells(19), Keith Delves(27) & Ed Hanson(16) with 64.8. Coming third were Raymond Southcombe(17), Keith Mundy(23) & Terry Garrett(26) scoring 65.
The Saturday Medal was not very well supported this weekend, there were only 4 Ladies playing. The top score of a net 76 was not enough to put the following Tuesday Ladies off their stroke. However a newcomer Joanna Graham did well to par the 4th.
Tuesday was a truly beautiful day, Very sunny but with a bite to the breeze which was a definite harbinger of Winter. 21 Ladies braved it playing a Medal or Stableford for those with a 36 handicap.
