Tuesday 1st August saw 12 competitors enter a much loved team game, a Texas Scramble. Unfortunately, due to members returning to the U.K. to escape the punishing heat and others visiting and playing only during the Winter Months, numbers were at a minimum. It was, therefore, good to welcome potential new member, John Burke, who was moved to contact Secretary Ian Henderson as a result of reading these articles. He then promptly helped his team win the competition.

Nearest the Pins, Hole 4 – Graham Blakeway and Hole 8 – Rod Loveday.

3rd Place, Handicap 4.68  – John Wilby, David Swann, George Stanhope – 48.32 Shots.

2nd Place, Handicap 6.42 – Ian Henderson, Lawrence Wanty, Lyn Young – 46.58 Shots.

1st Place, Handicap 6.58 – Keith Smith, Graham Blakeway, John Burke – 46.42 Shots.
