53 players entered on another extremely warm day with a gentle breeze and fast running conditions, I expect some players recorded their longest ever drives on various holes!!
There were some excellent scores leading to a CSS of 69, with Charles Donnison & Harry Gibbons both recording nett 64s. A total of 39 birdies were recorded, with 8 players managing a 2 somewhere, Steve Cullington managing two 2s plus two other birdies, well done to all.
1st place nett : Charles Donnison 74 - 10 = 64 (back 9 c/b)
2nd place nett : Harry Gibbons 83 - 19 = 64
3rd place nett : John Payling 77 - 11 = 66
Best gross : Steve Cullington 73
Next weekend we have a Saturday Medal followed by the Gann Cup Stableford on Sunday, it's possible we may see a little rain before that, the course desperately needs it, but once again I hope you join me in applauding our Greens Staff for their tremendous efforts in presenting a course that both looks and plays beautifully despite the lack of water for around 8 -10 weeks now.
