Another fantastic day for golf, sunny and little to no wind. The greens were in some of the best condition ever for this time of the year, and after being cut and rolled late Friday they played very true but with the fastest pace we have seen since last summer. Club length relief still being given on the fairways which are still struggling due to lack of rain. The club very pleased to have a strong field for the Relative Pairs shield, (a club shield). There were some classy scores many over 40 points with 46 points to get a ball. Other pairs also played 4BBB Stableford. On a stunning day for golf the results were;
Winners of the 2018 Relative Pair’s Shield; Darren (10)/Cameron (24) Newnham – 49 points – (23 front & 26 in back), Cameron holing putts from all parts of the green, C/B from Bruce (30)/Lorraine (34) Robb. (26 front & 23 back) Other excellent scores were; Jim Patton (20)/Chris Lingard (2) – 46 points & John (22)/Darren (6) Freestone – 46 points
Other scores worth note, (but not quite good enough to get a ball); Les Gaunt (7)/Robert McLennan (12) – 45 points, Peter (31) & Elaine Scanlon (32), & John (31)/Andrew Laing (18) both 43 points, R. Rea (18)/M. Nicholls Snr (22) – 42 points
