As a Christmas celebration the women played a relaxed game with modified rules. The captain determined the set of rules to be played from each tee of the 12 holes of the “Old Course”. There were lots of giggles and laughter as short irons were hit from tees and drivers used to chip on to a green. Penalties applied for anyone talking on one tee but everyone managed to keep quiet for the duration! Scores were so close the captain declared a draw and everyone headed tot eh rooms for a well deserved chocolate.
The men chose to play an 18 hole round of Stableford. The course is particularly good at the moment and the 18 hole contingent enjoyed their round in near perfect weather conditions. John Freestone played a great shot on the 15th and then drilled his second shot for a nice, neat birdie. Result for the day:
Winner; Ron Walker – 33 points from John Freestone – 31 points & Hugh Williams – 30 points
NTPs; 15th – John Freestone
