Flag Day

Flag Day


Today was the Flag competition. It was lovely to have 18 ladies playing - each having their handicap plus 72 shots to use. When the shots ran out it was marked on the card and when we got in a little marker flag was put on the map in the right place to mark how far we'd got.

It was very cold again... overcast and seemed to get colder as the round progressed.

 The flag was carried out by the first pair. They got as far as the 17th and planted the flag by the green.

Some of the following players still had shots to play and picked the flag up and carried it forward... to the 18th... and even as far as the green!

Hilary''s Red Flag on the fringe of the 18th green!

No-one could match this and our Winner of the Flag competition was Hilary- well played!

Fran was second, running out of shots on the 18th fairway near the first wall...

and in third was Chris J who was also on the 18th fairway.

Clustered on the 17th green were the flags of Ruth, Lyn and Jane L. Sarah, Sue D and Lindsay were clustered on the 16th green then came Claire and Jenny.
There were 5 birdies, Hilary with two (2nd and 4th); Chris J, myself and Jane (12th) and Sarah on the 5th. 

Well done everyone - we had good conditions today although many were suffering from very cold hands!

A special well done to Sarah for her two on the 5th! Fantastic!

Tomorrow the men play their quarter final of the Wills competition at West Cornwall.
Next Saturday is a drawn Greensome - the draw will be made after golf on Thursday.
Next Sunday is the New Captain's Trophy - a mixed Scramble.

It was lovely to see Pat who joined us after golf and brought some sweaters with the original Cape logo on to raise money for the Captain's Charity.

Thanks also to the card markers... Flag is definitely card marking with a difference!
