SO­CIAL

Ladies Day, Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 21, saw 18 play­ers present for a stroke and putt on the back nine. Gen­tle­men were given the op­por­tu­nity to grow hair and wear a skirt so as to play off the Ladies tees. This was taken up by a few brave men. To make it fair to ev­ery­one the hand­i­cap­ping was a lit­tle dif­fer­ent this week as there was a sus­pi­cious look­ing woman in the win­ner’s cir­cle. The win­ner with a score of 32 was Ed Con­nell, los­ing 1.5 from his hand­i­cap. Se­cond place went to Bob Cochrane with 33 los­ing .1 with 3rd place go­ing to Donna (Do­minic) Mete with 34, los­ing .5 from her/his hand­i­cap. Donna (Do­minic) also took out the com­bined long­est drive. The cen­tre fair­way shot went to Rose Cochrane. B-grade ap­proach on the 10th went to Rob Blows. Bob Cochrane won near­est the pin on the 13th with the men’s ap­proach on the 15th go­ing to “I don’t win noth­ing” Len Stal­lard. Next week we will be play­ing Sta­ble­ford on the back nine 7.30 tee off. It was great to see some old faces re­turn this week and as al­ways new mem­bers and vis­i­tors are al­ways wel­come.
