In recent weeks we have seen footage of people stripping off and charging into freezing rivers or lakes to celebrate the winter solstice, well at RGC we do something similar, play golf under freezing conditions on a very soggy course, sleet and snow were in the prediction; your decision as to who are the most sane!  Conditions were going to make it tough for anyone to post a good score.  The 4B Aggregate competition proved to be a game to two nines.  In the end there were only two teams in it, one with a very ordinary front nine and the other with an even more ordinary back nine.  A couple of excellent birdies made all the difference.  The MoM field was greatly reduced as so many monthly medals had not been played in 2020 and early 2021.  Some very steady golf under tough conditions and a lost ball here and an out of bounds there was all it took to let one of the clubs most experienced golfers take out the title.  On a freezing afternoon on a very wet course the results were;

4B Aggregate Stableford; Pat Chisholm (12)/Mick Nicholls Jnr (20) – 58 pts from Mal Mottram (7)/Anthony Lakey(19) – 54 pts

Medal of Medalists; Rob Rea – 93/19/74 from Scott Williams 98/14/84

NTPs; 16th – Scott Williams
