SOCIAL ON Sunday, April 26 - very blustery morning greeted the players with winds adding a chill factor to what would have been otherwise a magnificent day. Some managed to handle the winds and Scotty White showed how it was done with a 23 losing 3.5 off his handicap, Bill Long with 19 and losing 1.8 in second and third was Bob Cochrane on 18 and losing 0.5 Bob also managed to win the B Grade Approach on the 10th, Dave Hills won the A-grade longest drive, Len (I never win anything) Stallard the B-grade longest drive, Chris Fitzsimons the men’s approach on the 15th and Adam Smith the Combined Approach on the 16th. Next week we will play the May Mug Day event over the Front Nine, Stroke and Putt with a new start time of 8am. Just a reminder about the buggies, motorised or hand , please keep them away from the greens and make sure that if in a motorised buggy you do not drive across the tees. Sand buckets for all to fill not only your divots but those left by others and make sure that you repair any plug marks in the greens even if they are not your own, After the Sunday games it would be appreciated if members would elect to empty the bins without being reminded. It seems the same people are always left to do it so let’s have those other members lend a hand, thanks in advance. Have a great week and see you at 8am on Sunday.
