Considering the deluge(s) the course has experienced this summer, it’s a wonder there have been so few cancelled competitions.
Club Championship week was fortunate in that the rain arrived on the non-playing days, the ProAm went ahead with only a little rain after the whole week before the event was constant rain followed by the Ladies Open (bit soggy), the Eagle (likewise) and the Gents Seniors Open (ditto).
All of these events are major highlights of the club’s summer season and are vital to both the social well-being of the club and to the overall success of the clubhouse, so if you came and played in any of the above, well done to you and may I pass on “kudos” to Drew and his team for ensuring that we have had a golf course to play on during this worst spell of weather in a hundred years.
