A strong field assembled for the club’s Texas Ambrose round. Golfers play off their own handicap, with  teams of three each player must take a minimum of four drives.  After  taking the best drive individuals then  play out their own ball and the two best stableford scores on each hole are recorded for the team.   After the recent coring the greens were un-mown and more than challenging, add to this some extremely unusual and often devious pin placements and just getting close to the cup was a great achievement.  The round began under slightly overcast skies and jumpers were on.  Soon enough he skies cleared and the weather warmed and polo shirts of many colours were to be seen across the course.  It was a day for the courageous, approach shots needed to be”spot on” and putts had to be very firm but even the best golfers could not predict how a ball would react if it hit a core hole.  After the round some very creative language used to describe the individuals who had placed the cups on the greens.  On a very challenging, yet enjoyable, afternoon the results were;

Winners; Kev Dunn (27)/Shannon Wright (10)/Mick Nichols Jnr (16) – 86 pts from Lis Manktelow(24)/Sherif  Abdel-Sayed (24)/Chris Manktelow(35) – 81 pts & Jim Patton(20)/Mick Squire(5)/Pat Chisholm(13) – 79 pts
