Ladies and Seniors Autumn AmAm
Tuesday 30th October 2018 started grey, damp, and dreary, especially so as it was an early 8.30 am Shotgun Start, some of us were barely awake when 48 players set off to their starting points.
Fortunately, the weather brightened during the day, and some excellent scores were recorded.
Even if the golf was not quite up to standard, the refreshments at Halfway were. Many thanks to Senior Captain Keith’s good lady for the delicious scones and sausage rolls, and thanks also to Judy Spilsbury and the team for serving the goodies, along with hot drinks.
And the usual “Seniors Pick Me Up “ (alcohol of some sort), although I’m not sure that improved everyone’s game.
The golf was followed by our customary lunch - Jacket Potatoes and a delicious variety of fillings, thanks to Rob and all the catering staff.
Thankyou to the Ladies for the Lunch, and to the Seniors for Halfway House, Prizes, and Lunchtime Drinks .
The Competition was 4Ball AmAm Stableford - 1 Lady+ 1 Senior scoring, and I’m grateful for the participation of our “Honorary Ladies” - Petra Woodhall and Kenina Brittain, so everyone got a game.
