Of the 36 members scheduled to play a Stableford competition, 34 made the journey in spite of the threat of rain. As it turns out they were justified as the rain didn´t appear until late in the afternoon when only our last group were still out on the course and had it not been for a couple of our groups playing slowly even they would not have gotten wet!
Slow Play! Probably the worst thing to experience in golf, having to wait to take your shot just seems to kill the pleasure of the game. I would urge all players to consider the players in the following group and give them the opportunity to enjoy their game also, after all the game should be played with consideration to all other players on the course or at least that’s how I read the etiquette section of the rule book!
The course was in its usual good condition and nice to see that the tee repairs from last month are now well and truly on their way to full recovery. The flag positions on some of the greens did however make the approach shots a little tricky and this was probably the reason that no one broke par.
The 2´s pot was carried over from last week´s visit to H.D.A. so adding in this week´s subs meant that the 2 lucky winners took away €35 each both making birdies on hole 16, well done to J. Hillier and P. Mahoney. Our only visitor this week was P. Wainwright who managed to score 28 points to take the visitors prize. Bronze cat; 3rd M. Myhrvold 31, 2nd P.
