Two scores out of four to count and all on the par 5’s was our format for Monday’s team game. The winners (despite signing and submitting an incorrect card) by quite some margin, with 91 points, were Benedicte Kruse, Mike Mahony, Peter Wickham and (making his debut) Simon Hughes. Still as the old saying goes ‘the best wood in most amateurs’ bags is the pencil’.

Peter Wickham was again top of the pile with 39 points in Wednesday’s Stableford. With each player having to select just 5 clubs and a putter, second spot went to Maria Oldenziel with 34 points and Geoff Biggerstaff took third with 33. Only the one ‘2’ today which was carded by Phil Herrington (who didn’t realise it was only 5 clubs and came out with 4 wedges!)

On Thursday morning the news started to drift through that our good friend and member of the society for the past ten years, Brian Staines, had sadly passed away the previous evening. Brian epitomised the spirit of any golf society, always quick to make a gag and bring a smile to everyone’s face. Rest in peace mate.

Friday saw us compete in the dreaded ‘Yellow Peril’. With a score of 125 points and winning by quite some distance, were Terry Field, Marleen Billen, Heinz Lei and (yet again) new boy Simon Hughes.

Pues, hasta la semana que viene
