British Weather !!
On Sunday 4th June, Long Sutton GC held the Mixed Open to a field of 98 players, 4bbb pairs. We had visiting players from 18 different clubs. The weather came in and everyone got wet but spirits were not dampened. Thanks to our two hero’s Andrew Hayes and Graham Holloway who went out and swept every green free of lying water so we were able to complete the event.
Despite the deluge we had some amazing scores, especially in the wettest part of the day. The players were able to come in to a very welcome hot carvery meal.
Best Overall pair went to Dave and Angela Baker from Long Sutton GC with an impressive 46pts.
1st Visiting pair were Wendy / Ian Gregory from Came Down GC with 43pts, 2nd Martin / Debbie Bargery from Cricket St Thomas GC with 41pts, 3rd. were Bob / Jackie Taylor from Weymouth GC with 40pts.
Home 1st place went to Katherine / Mike Stringer with 44pts, 2nd were Carole Lancaster / Bill Bond with 43pts (winning on the back 9, 3rd were Amanda / Malcom Head with 43pts
The nearest the pin prizes were won by Mike Stringer (home) and Steve Lamb (China Fleet GC - away).
