Only one bus required, and a couple of cars ferrying all 13 golfers to this lovely course. The trip itself was uneventful other than dodging the craters on the road leading from the highway to the course proper.

We had had plenty of rain leaving punters worried that carts would not be allowed on the course but despite a heavy ground, they were. Thus playing conditions were in our favor! Maybe, in hindsight Lift, Clean & Place could have been introduced.

We played from the white tees and as per normal this course was is terrific condition, other than the greens. Now these were in great condition (as always) but on the first nine, if you were not on with your putting it could cost you dearly. One golfer was on the green putting for a birdie and ended up with a wipe!

Bernie McCart had the score that nobody could beat, returning with 37 very good points, putting him four in front of the field. Running in to second was Buffalo Bill Steinmann, with Brendan Devlin taking the last spot on the podium.
