Cornwall v Rest of the World


Today was the Cornwall v Rest of the World Competition. Forty-eight players patriotic to the core, fought for their team - there were ladies on both sides!

Grey mizzle - appropriate perhaps?

We paid our dues and enjoyed a coffee before heading out on the course for a shotgun start at 9am.

Signing in

Geoff had prepared the course for us with Cornish flags on the poles.

We played a betterball and went out in fours, two Cornish v two Rest of the World.

At the end, each team score would be added up... an accumulator - then the winner declared.

Every pair was given two sleeves of balls. If you won your match, the losing pair would pass over their balls to you; or vice versa!

So there was an added incentive to play well  - not that it was needed!

Getting ready for play.
The scores being accumulated!

The Results!

The scores were as follows... 

Cornwall 457 points; Rest of the World 474!

Well done Rest of the World!

When we were finished... German raised the Cuban Flag alongside the Cornish one... perfect!

What a good day we had.

Thanks to Geoff and Roy for organising today and to Geoff for the nibbles in the bar afterwards.
