Vet­er­ans’ Golf

It was a stroke of bril­liance that the Vets Com­mit­tee held their An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing be­fore golf on Mon­day Oc­to­ber 1, and as it was a fine day, they turned up in droves, and like chil­dren in school, all were keen to get out­side on to the course. Re­tir­ing Cap­tain Judy Bor­chard, who has held the po­si­tion for three years, leaves the Sec­tion in good heart, with ever- in­creas­ing num­bers at­tend­ing each week, and a strong com­mit­tee to carry on her good work led by in­com­ing Cap­tain Chris O’Con­nell. Com­pe­ti­tion for the day was In­di­vid­ual Stable­ford.

Men’s Golf — 18 holes

On Satur­day Septem­ber 29 it was a warm, calm morn­ing, and with the bet­ter weather con­di­tions seen for a while, scor­ing was quite tight for the 42 play­ers in the nett com­pe­ti­tion. Re­sults: Tom Row­botham 67; Roger Bagshaw, Mike Bon­nici, Ray Fisher 68; Bob Hog­gard, Ken Pur­cell, Gra­ham O’Dwyer 70; Gra­ham Hawkes, Don Oliver 71. There was a light breeze that had lit­tle ef­fect on the 27 af­ter­noon play­ers in their nett com­pe­ti­tion, re­turn­ing some very good scores, apart from be­ing mo­men­tar­ily daz­zled by a player show­ing off his flam­boy­ant new strides that would have even made John Daly blush. Re­sults: Rus­sell Ber­ridge 66; Nigel San­der­son 68; Keith Bell 69; Charles Gurr, John Tay­lor 70; Chris Gates, Ed­die Evans, Terry Ger­bich, Wayne Bri­er­ley 71.
