Where to start!
Firstly a huge thank you to everyone that came out and supported the drive-in of our new Captains.
In my opinion we couldn't have asked for a better day! Whilst a little chilly and the rain threatening towards the end of the round, the weather managed to stay sunny and bright in the main.
On the day we set a new record as to the number of teams we could run in a shotgun start format, 30 teams in total taking part, it was great to see the spirit of Long Sutton in all it's glory both on and off the course.
We managed to raise £157 for the Charity by guessing how far i'd hit the ball on my drive, huge thanks to Angela for extracting peoples money from their wallets, well done to the 3 winners for correctly guessing 229 yards, not my best i'll admit but i hit a tree that robbed me of a few yards. We also had the Under Armour raffle that raised £50 and the water hazard fines that raised a little, so a great start for the year - thank you to you all for contributing.
Strongest team of the day - John Bolton, Anne McRae, M Gamble and A Stanton - 70.1 Net
3rd Place - Gill Edwards, Ray Edwards, Tim Edwards and Dave Baker - 58.7 Net
2nd Place - G Edmunds, H Callow, T Atkins, R Harwood - 57.6 Net losing on the back 9
1st Place - R Body, J Rodgers, Angela Body, A Moray - 57.6 Net
My team finsihed a respectable 5th with 60.3 Net
Lastly some thank you's - Tommy for collecting entries and dishing out cards, Norman and Rich Dore for creating the scorecards and sorting the results, the Management and catering staff for dealing with 120 golfers all at once, the greenstaff - the course was playing extremely well as the scores suggest and finally to you all the members, without your support these events don't work.
Hope the weather improves and you can all get some golf
