With the day’s temperature expected to hit 36C the club offered an early hit-off time, 8.30 am; a number of players took that option while many others headed out at the usual time of 9.30 am. What a difference a week makes, last Wednesday cold and blustery, this week hot with a gentle breeze. In fact the weather was almost perfect for golf; some relief from the hot sun with the cooling breeze. There was plenty of summer run but pleasingly there is still a nice covering of (dry) grass on most fairways. The greens were very slick having been recently mown and apart from some bird damage were in good condition. On a hot, reasonably still morning all players enjoyed the challenge of a Par event and recorded the following results.
Winner – Darlene Baker (19) Square from Beryl Cole (26) -1 & Pam Drummond (36) -2
Men’s Winner – Bruce Robb (32) + from John Freestone (22) -4
