The 2021 Club Championships began under almost perfect conditions, a gentle breeze from the NW, fairways and surrounds in top nick and the greens fast and true.  All groups teed off from the 1st beginning at 11.00am.  The field moved well however a number of players found themselves “dead” under or in a bush and forced to take an “unplayable”.  Others found themselves well off line but were able to salvage a par with some amazing recovery shots.  However, golf being the game it is, a wonderful birdie was often followed up with a double or triple bogie.  One highlight of the day was Life Member Peter Scanlon playing in his 63rd consecutive RGC Club Championships.
