Tuesday 11th July Club Day saw another team game with a ‘Yellow Ball’ competition.
An ideal entry of 18 members resulted in 6 team of 3 each having sole control of the Yellow Ball for 6 Holes. A draconian change of existing rules by Club Captain, Rod Loveday, meant that the penalty for a lost ball was increased from 2 shots to 5, but no dissent was voiced. However, only one team suffered that penalty. Indeed, despite the greens still being quite slow, quite a few individual Stableford scores in the mid-thirties points, were returned.
Nearest the Pins, Hole 4 – Rod Loveday and Hole 8 – Keith Smith.
3rd Place, Alan Janes, David Swann, Lyn Young – 128 points.
2nd Place, John Wilby, Mel Hope, George Stanhope – 138 points.
1st Place, Ray Housley, Henry Mellor, Rod Loveday.
Picture shows all the winners who are too numerous to mention.
