The warm and wet weather of 2015 has continued into the New Year presenting problems for the Greenkeeping Staff to keep both courses playable. Whilst this meant that we did have 4 temporary greens in play for this medal we did have the benefit of full tees which was a bonus.
With a great deal of water sitting on or just below the surface keeping the ball on the fairway was at a premium. Anything that strayed into the rough was either covered in mud or very difficult to find.
The easiest holes on the course not surprisingly were the ones where temp greens were being used with the toughest hole being the 4th baring its’ teeth with scores averaging 2.1 over par for the 42 golfers in the field.
In Division 2 there was a dead heat between three players all on Net 70. So once again it came down to who done what on the last 9, 6, or 3 holes to determine the winner:
1st Mr Mark Bradfield 93-23c=70
2nd Mr Peter G Hall 86-16c=70
3rd Mr Ilhwan Park 93-23c=70
Well played gents and congratulations to Mark for winning Division 2
Over in Division 1 countback again was in use to ascertain third place with Chris Langton coming out on top. Securing the runner-up spot with a fine net 68 was Geoff Hardy. Out in front and taking the overall medal was Andrew Mclellan with an excellent net 66 after a gross 75. Congratulations ‘Hamish’!
Next event is the Jan Stableford on the 16th – lets hope for some drier conditions.
