Medal and Vets Vase

Sunshine and a strong easterly wind were our companions on the course today. Mark had cut the greens and combined with the wind they were FAST!!

Sometimes folk were lucky... this is Sue D's ball just avoiding the bunker on the 10th!

But she (and many others) also had hard luck... the ball going in and out of the hole on this hole... and on the 17th!

Ah!  The 17th!

This was the hardest hole on the course for the medal players today!

It was not getting on to the green that was the issue... it was getting the ball into the hole. 

The wind was whipping across the green and unless the ball went in the hole first time, plumb centre it ran back past where you started!

For example Sue tried over and over, close to the hole; above the hole.. next to the hole ... even going in the hole and coming out again, the ball ran back to the bottom. Eventually it went in and stayed in.

Good idea to video it for the blog... so after we finished the hole Sue tried the putt again...  and would you believe it...

You can see what Sue thought of that!

The Stableford winner was Pam with a score of 22 points.

The winner of the Medal and Vets Vase was Lyn, with a magnificent Nett 75. 

No-one came close... Sue D was second with 82, and Anne third with 85.

Well done all for soldiering on  to the end! 

 It was lovely to have Jean join us for coffee afterwardstoday, and to see Viv on Thursday.  Thanks always to Rosemary for doing the money. We missed those of you who couldn't make it today... hope to see you soon.

Next Saturday is Invitation Day!
