Seniors Away Day Results

Senior Section Away Day – Tuesday 6th October

…. held at Longhirst Dawson Course.

Alan Johnson had organised the event. We had 4 teams of 4 for a Texas Scramble. A bacon sandwich and tea or coffee to start.

1st tee off time 10:30 on another beautiful blue sky and sunny day with a medium breeze!

The course was in very good order with challenging undulating greens. The winning team was P Smith, J Mackie, A Johnson, J Jones with a good net score.

Nearest the pin on the three par 3’s was G Reid, P Langton and D Fletcher.

Big thanks to Alan for his time on the day.

HOWEVER, only 15 out of 16 from a membership of 86 were involved! (Later apologies from the missing person).Gentlemen, you missed a great day and friendship. Next time?

Next event – Xmas trophy, 8th December. Let’s make it a great turnout after a difficult year!
