Critta Stars in the Rain

A field of 9 set off this afternoon in initially dry conditions. During the afternoon the expected rain arrived making conditions difficult but doing the golf course no end of good.

Chris “Critta” Waters coped admirably and after a steady front 9 stormed home scoring  23 stableford points on the back 9 for a total of 41. Runner up was the in-form Michael “Tickers” Tickner with 38 points.  The assistant handicap manager wasted no time reducing both their handicaps by 1 stroke.

The Flying Dutchman Returns (again)!

Club members were delighted once again to see the smiling face of Eddie “The Flying Dutchman” Van Keulen after an absence due to age related health issues.

The competition played was a par round arguably the greatest test in golf, match play against the course. Some still argue that stroke play is the real test but they are ignoring the facts (perhaps their place is in politics) as a small piece of bad luck can destroy a stroke round.

Four players managed to beat the course with Dick Cleland doing so in emphatic manner.
