Wednesday 23rd December
In view of COVID issues and anticipated weather conditions on the 23rd it has been decided to cancel this weeks Swindle.
Wednesday 16th December
Today’s swindle was played on the Constable course, conditions were to say the least, extremely wet, however, on the plus side, the greens had been cut and for the time of year, were very good.
There was some excellent golf played today with two new members to our section, finishing in the winners circle.
I’m told the highlight of the day was Adrian Beckinsale's slide in the mud down the 16th sloping fairway, however this did not stop his great score though.
As it’s nearly Christmas, it was decided that we would have a bit of fun with the scoring.
1st = Adrian Beckinsale 38 pts 2 shot cut
1st = Alan Finlayson 38 pts 2 shot cut
3rd = Ian Archer 36 pts 1 shot cut
3rd = Tony Denmead 36 pts 1 shot cut
3rd = Del McWilliams 36 pts 1 shot cut
Wednesday 9th December
Today’s swindle was our first after the recent lockdown and the first using the new handicap system, we played the extremely wet Constable course which had 13 temporary greens, however, this didn’t stop some people getting some great scores.
1st Brian Willsher 43points
2nd Allen Smith 40 points
3rd Phil Hickley with 39 points on c/b
May we remind everyone that you may only place your ball or use your divot mat on fairways and closely mown areas. Also, there are no gimmes, even on temps.
