Bosullow Bowl

The Bosullow Bowl

This trophy was first awarded in 1990 when the Club first opened. It was donated by Anne. The format is mixed Greensomes playing off half combined handicaps.
This meant that some earned only a few shots, like Hilary and Paul who had 12, while others had hundreds many more! 28 was the highest handicap allowance!

You can see from the picture that it was a very grey day - and quite cold... the glorious weather of the last few days seems to have ended but we stayed dry and for that I am grateful.

We used 5 different tees to start from;1,3,8,10 and also 12; and we had 16 pairs enter.
Many thanks to Rosemary for coming early and overseeing the entry money and prize allocation.

The conditions being fairly chilly and quite blowy meant that the scores were not as high as last year. 



On the 12th... and guess who it was? 

Annie Jones!

She hit her drive "not very well" and looked for it by the wall, thinking that it had not carried and was probably lost. They didn't find it.

On reaching the green, her playing partner lifted out the flagstick to find Annies ball lying in the hole!

 A one for 6 points!

The celebrations reverberated around the course and cheered us all for the rest of the round!

What a delight!

Pam had made a beautiful display of flowers for us and on hearing of Anne's achievement she happily agreed that the flowers should be awarded to Annie. 

Well done Annie - most appropriate on your Trophy day, and thank you to Pam!

To the results... in fourth place (on countback from Anne and John T), were Sue and Steve D with a score of 41 points. 

Pam and Tim B were in 3rd with 42 points (which included 3 four pointers!) and in second were yours truly and Ray B with 43 points.

In first place with a lovely 45 points were Fran and Brian, the Bosullow Bowl winners for 2016.

What a lovely day - thank you to everyone who entered;  thank you to the card markers - Hilary and Fran and thanks again to Pam for the beautiful flowers. 

Next Saturday is the Bob Lynne trophy, a betterball stableford with drawn partners - Lindsay is doing the draw on Thursday after golf.

Thanks everyone for making today such fun... Annie's dance in the bar after she had rung the bell to celebrate her hole in one, was lovely to behold!
