Not a large turnout today but all were anxious and optimistic as we headed for the day’s challenge at Crystal Bay. We played C and B Nines in that order from the white tees. The course was in good nick and the weather gods smiled at us and kept the rain away.
We had seventeen golfers so we only played the one division with four places and all the novelties in play. Geoff Bracegirdle was the winner on the day with a tidy 36 points while second past the post was decided by the count-back system and Dave Maw edged out Bill Steinmann to take the silver. Glenn Smith grabbed the last position on the podium.
