The Avenel Salver was played in ideal winter conditions. The chill in the air was offset by the fact that there was not a breath of wind all day. Although there were preferred lies on the fairways the course was in perfect condition and once players became accustomed to sweeping and scraping, and adjusting to the speed of the greens, putting was consistent.
A hot cup of soup as players passed the clubhouse was a welcome treat and very tasty. And once the round was over a lovely lunch was served and appreciated by all.
Winners of the Salver were a team from Seymour.
Of Romsey’s team, which included Elaine Scanlon, Jenny Hartley and Darlene Baker, Elaine returned the best score with 35 points, well done Elaine.
