The round began on a clear, sunny afternoon.  The fairways had good cover but were still soft, shaded areas  carried heavy dew so there was little run and plenty of mud once the ball landed; relief to a handspan across the course, was given.  The field was boosted by a number of members of the Romsey Football/Netball club who were taking advantage of a Saturday without football or netball for a round of golf.  As the round progressed the weather improved and made for an excellent afternoon in the park.  The 4BBB Stroke format saw a number of pairs playing outstanding front nines and posting good scores but it consistency over the the final nine decided the day’s winner.  In the end it came down to just who could best handle the most difficult hole on the course, the 18th.  On a wonderful, early winter’s day the results were;

Winners; Mal Mottram/Anthony Lakey – 80/16/64, Dean Borg/Ethan Bray – 85/21/64, Sherif Abdel-Sayed – 85/19.5/65.5 & Darlene Baker/Bob McLennan – 84/17.5/66.5
