The course had held up reasonably well after the extreme cold of the weekend and the steady rain of Mon/Tue however there was some casual water on many fairways and even one or two greens. At the beginning of the round the sun poked through and stayed for the first few holes. By hole 6 things looked a little bleak and by the 7th light rain began to fall. The players decided that discretion was the better part of valour and it was agreed that all play the the 12-hole “Old Course”. Under these conditions it was extremely difficult to card a good score. Well done to those who turned out and who completed the slightly reduced round.
