It was good to be back at an old favourite this week, and although the greens were still recovering from their recent hollow tining, the course was generally in good nick.
The weather was hot but also humid and this took its toll on one of our committee members who decided to walk. Nine holes was all he could muster before the ‘smell of sweat’ took over and he gave up.
Special mention here for our octogenarian Norman McBride (83) who not only completed 18 holes but scored a magnificent 31 points.
The scoring was a little down on recent weeks, perhaps reflecting that this is a long course – mind you no one told Krazy Kyrre our big-hitting, if somewhat erratic, Norwegian – his radar was obviously locked in today and not only did he better par (one of only 2 players) – he did it with 42 points.
There was some keen competition amongst a good field of 42 and scores were close at the top of the three divisions.
