Seventeen ladies turned out to play today's Stableford - perhaps hoping for the gorgeous weather of yesterday? But alas, it was cloudy, windy and chilly at the start. Fortunately the weather did settle a little and turned warmer and less windy as the round progressed.
Conditions were in fact fairly benign for Cape, but Cape wasn't playing ball. None of the scores reached the thirties - it was harder than it appeared.
Some were playing steadily, below is Anne's second shot onto the 10th.
|Lindsay and Hilary in the distance!|
Some were more fortunate than others... below is Sue S teeing off on the 14th. Her ball flew from her driver, bounced on the bridge and scurried onto the fairway!
"More jam than Hartleys," floated across the course!
|Sue teeing off on the 14th|
Others were less fortunate... spot the ball... and guess how many strokes it took to get on to the green!
|Rough by the wall next to the 13th green!|
It took 5!
However there was some steady play; our winner in the "B" group was Liz with Jean in second. That's three wins in a row for Liz... she parred the 17th - the only one to do so! Well played and keep it up!
|Liz and Sonia|
To everyone's delight our winner in the "A" group was Anne, with Sue D just pipping Sonia to second on Countback.
Well played Anne!

Firstly: Congratulations to Chris L for second place at Porthpean on Thursday in the Spring Bronze Meeting! This is what the CLCGA reported.
On a fair day 32 players from 8 clubs took part in the Bronze Spring Meeting (hcps 21- 36) at Porthpean Golf Club. Home member Brenda Morton had a fine round and stamped her authority over the rest of the field winning by 5 shots from runner-up Christine Leiworthy (Cape Cornwall). The conditions were good but players found the fairways and greens difficult to master.
Well played Chris!
Secondly: Two ladies were playing with digit injuries! Sue D sliced her index finger with an axe chopping kindling, and Ruth scissored her thumb trying to cut up a credit card! Be warned... as things so often go in threes!
Thirdly: The Australian Spoons competition will played at a later date.
