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.
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 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.
