Both a 9 hole and 18 hole comp was played in the Stableford format. The weather was near perfect after the strong wind abated quickly and became a gentle breeze. Cloud cover kept the hot sun away and players enjoyed a pleasant round.
There continued to be preferred lies on the fairway being played because of bare patches but often the lie was good. There were three flocks of Corellas on the course and sadly they continue to damage the greens by digging large, deep holes on the putting surface.
After the round players enjoyed a shared lunch, with a glass of champagne, to celebrate the recent Hidden Valley Bowl win by Pam Drummond, Jenny Hartley and Darlene Baker. We were joined in this celebration by two of our Life Members, Helene Newnham and Leila Beasley. All present reminisced about previous bowl wins and toasted this most recent one .
