The Dryer Cup is played over three events by the Seniors with the South versus the North based on the Ryder Cup format.
The final round of singles matches was played in cool and showery conditions on Monday 18th March. The Northern team was faced with the prospect of overturning a 14-6 deficit but, with 20 points at stake, there was everything to play for. The day started with a flurry of alterations to personnel and enforced changes of allegiance but we ended up with a full complement of 20 matches. All were hard fought, with three halved and several games going to the wire. The outcome was a win on the day for the North with 11.5 points against the South's 8.5, giving an overall result of South: 22.5, North: 17.5.
The support for this fun event was very gratifying, with 40 players in each of the three formats entering into the spirit with appropriately coloured clothes and flat caps. We were fortunate with the weather and course conditions, which enabled us to play each match on the allocated day in reasonable conditions.
The overall results were:
