It was almost the perfect day for a round, clear, blue skies, temperature in the mid 20s and only a zephyr from the North-East. Good scoring was to be expected. The recent hot weather saw the fairways much harder so all players got good value for well struck drives. The greens, while still a little lumpy, held well and players who putted with conviction got good results. The day was one for the veterans with three octogenarians giving their handicaps a serious scare. However, in the end, it was a battle between two of the club’s most engaging members with age and experience winning over youthful enthusiasm. On a great day to be out in the Park the day’s results were;
Winner; Mick Nicholls Snr – 88/25/63 from Shannon Wright – 81/15/66, Bruce Robb – 102/34/69, Mal Mottram – 81/11/70 and John Laing – 102/31/71.
