3 Counties Report – Winter Salver at Folke - 23rd February, 2013
If you knew the temperature was not going to rise much above freezing and that it would manage to snow from the moment you teed off, you would think twice about playing golf, let alone playing at Folke. You can see from the picture just how exposed the course is. What a cold wind. Where are the rest of the team while Val tries to ignore the out-of-bounds farmyard on the left? They've got sense. They are hugging the wall until it's time to step out onto the tee!
Thank you to the team...Sam Clarke, Chris Binding, Hughie McGuire, Richard Dore, John Evans, Dave and Angela Baker, Sean Monaghan, Sandra Basford, Val Fraser, Ray Edwards and myself.
We came in feeling quite privileged...we know spring is round the corner. How? We were able to play 18 holes and saw the ball rolling!
Unfortunately, we came last on the day...Long Sutton 293, Wincanton 299, Cannington 302 and Folke 330. You can see a pattern here...Wincanton and Folke top scorers on their home courses.
Our home round is next Sunday at Orchardleigh. Should we all have extra adjustment shots, the men as well, to make up for not being on our home course?!
We had four scores in the thirties...Dave, our best, had a respectable 35 pts, Richard Dore 32 Angela 31 and I scraped 30.
The Leaderboard now looks like this...
Long Sutton 584
If anyone is interested in playing next Sunday at Orchardleigh, please let me know.
