The afternoon tee off weather deteriorated into showers, cloud and wind with low temperatures. Burghley Park fielded a strong team with their Club Captain Bob Emmins playing almost par golf going out in 40 - Norma & Phillip losing par to birdies on several holes ( a little demoralising!). The Hamiltons played well to hold their opposition to a loss of 2 down with youngster Scott Downie playing off 8. Janet & Alan Jessop recovered from a 5 down deficit to finish strongly. Our later teams played well to register wins. The meal was excellent with a fish pie main course and the usual team banter prevailed. Many thanks to Norma Varley who took over as Match Captain on the day and performed in her usual inimitable style!
