How often do we moan about taking 4 and a half hours to play a round of golf ?
Well, yesterday four of our younger, fitter (?.!,) members set out to play a slightly quicker round in a first game of SPEED GOLF at the club.
Playing as a single, refereeing their own game and score, the four set off at the crack of dawn carrying a small bag with a few clubs intent on playing a full round as quick as possible. Getting back to the clubhouse and over a hearty breakfast, the final scores were revealed;
1st (setting a new Speed Golf course record)
Nick Watson 75 + completed in 63.39 minutes = total of 138.39
2nd Ian Braime 80-1-net 79 + 65mins = 144
3rd Liam Gales 94-12-net 82 + 65mins = 147
4th Tom Greenfield 108-11-net 97 + 84mins = 181
Tom also went on to Captain the social team in a match later in the day against Stanton on the Wolds.
Everyone really enjoyed the challenge and they are looking to arranging a second event in 3-4 weeks time. So if anyone fancies giving it a go then watch out for more details soon !!
