November 22 – Stableford

Just before tee off time the weather was bleak and rain was falling.  28 of the 52 players booked into to play took fright and left their clubs in their bag.

24 hearty men and women teed off and were rewarded with perfect golf conditions.  Not a drop of rain fell and the sun shone brightly for much of the morning.

Terry Grace mastered the course better than the rest, recording the day’s best score of 37 stableford points.

Congratulations Terry (pictured below) and your 23 fellow competitors.
