The Indian Summer conditions that prevailed today were certainly conducive to a most enjoyable outing on the golf course. Even though the deciduous trees are bare of their leaves, there is still lots of colour around the course to be seen with the swamp pines resplendent in their bronze foliage, camellias still in flower and some beautiful bromeliads looking beautiful in the shady vicinity of the 18th tee.
It seems, however, that the golf activity of the day was not to the liking of many competitors. The achievement of a nett score in the seventies is to be revered and only half the field of 23 players over all divisions managed to reach this benchmark .
Sandra England had a “stunner” of a game today scoring the best scratch and nett scores of the field. Coming in with 92 off the stick and a nett 72 is to be admired and Sandra deserves the accolades for her steady concentration over 18 holes. There was barely a falter in her round and meticulous putting throughout ensured she achieved her goal on most greens.
Another tidy result of 98/75 was returned by Gloria Davis who claimed the runner up prize in Division 1 behind Sandra. Gloria’s long tee shots and fairway drives stand her in good stead to reach the green with ease and then some smart putting kept her on track throughout the day.
Division 2 was dominated by the experienced player in Wendy Phillips today. Wendy’s game was very steady down the middle of the fairway and her putting from near and far was on the money to earn her the top spot with 105/75. Close on her heels was Lyn Hatchman who scored a creditable 107/77 to take out second spot.
Division 3 was a hot contest battled out between Donna Hewat and Dot McManus. Both players came in with a nett 75 but Donna managed to nudge Dot into the runners up position on a count back. Donna has been playing consistent golf lately and it’s great to see the newly returned Dot up in the winning circle.
Division 1 – Sandra England 92
Division 2 – Wendy Phillips 105
