August is traditionally a slow period in the golfing calendar, with the high temperatures deterring all but the most committed players and holidays luring residents and part time members alike. El Plantio 2 Golf Society was no exception with only four players contesting a Medalford. Ray Housley was the big winner of this competition as probably the only reason he did not complete a clean sweep was because he could not come first and second in the same event.
Nearest the pins – Holes 2 and 6, Ray Housley. Second place, Handicap 15, Barry Walthall – 16 shots.
First place, Handicap 9, Ray Housley – 13 shots. Picture from L to R: Barry Walthall, Ray Housley.
