Night Golf 4.12.14
A good evening had by all but I must admit chaos reigned for a lot of it! Thursday lunchtime numbers settled out at 23, so Graham had to find some old clubs to step in and make it even. Then a call from Graham Load…stuck in traffic and too far away to get to us in time but he would join us for George’s chilli. Handing out cards “Where’s Steve Stopforth?” Still waiting for call to say it was on! My fault. I forgot to text him back! Quick team reshuffle…hopefully one torch in a group at least.
It was really quite eerie out on the course...diffuse moonlight, so you could actually see quite well without torches but it was so quiet. Where was every one? We hardly saw or heard any one. My team was convinced it was all a big trick and we would get in to find everyone sitting in the bar eating, having only pretended to play. But no. Thank goodness! Everyone played and enjoyed it. No one fell in a bunker or ditch or broke a club.
The winners were Angela Baker, Neil Hewitson and Martin Wicks but how they managed to play, let alone win, I don’t know as they seem to have laughed the whole way round and were still rolling round with laughter after they collected their prizes, Angela comfortable in her pink socks. Henry Edwards, Ann McRae and Rob Ford were second and on countback in third place, Roy Parmiter, Ray Edwards and Graham Holloway.
Thank you to the weather gods and to everyone for making it work.
