Our format today was a Combined Pairs Competition, a true test of comradeship and patience. We had 32 players, starting off in light rain, later changing into a warm sunny day.

The results for the competition were as follows: Winning pair Barry Carter & Michel Grin with 64 points, Second pair Tricia Chapman & Peter Jackson with 63 points, Third pair Malcolm Wise (showing great patience) and Patrick Lynch with 60 points.

Nearest the pin second shot on Hole 5 was Peter Jackson with an amazing eagle and on Hole 16 Derek Lindley with 4.99m. Only one two today, Peter Jackson with that great eagle.

Balls In The Water was won by a card draw by a grateful Patrick Lynch, nobody scoring the correct 77, although Brian Barden was only one out.

We had four results in our Match Play Knockout: Colin Foster beat Penny Barden 2 up, Donna Green beat John Nicol 5 & 3, Brian Barden beat Dave Phillips 1 up, Steve Patton beat Mick Connolly 1 up

Finally, Peter Brown deserves a mention for his imitation of a Dagon, the deity that was half fish and half man. On Hole 10, after putting his ball in the water, he walked straight in, shoes and socks on and hit the ball out of the water.Full marks for effort!

Next week we have a Singles Stableford. Any guests wishing to play, subject to handicap, contact Penny Barden at pegohandicapsec@gmail.com
