Due to weather conditions we allowed all teams an option to play a 9 hole game. The winners of that category were the sole entrants and the only 3 man team. As they managed to achieve a very creditable 20 Points, we thought that they deserved to be credited with £ 1.00 each. That team comprised of Hugh Barclay, Andrew Henderson and Drew Carlyle.The remaining £1.00 will be added to our Prize Fund.
Today 39 of us enjoyed what was initially a very cold morning and winter greens which were mid-morning altered to normal greens and slight breeze and lovely weather. From the above information, you will have surmised that we must have had a 3 ball side in our midst!! Little did we know that that team were going to have a phenomenal score! As a consequence of that score, we have revised the deduction for our next Greensome. (We are still learning!!)
