On a perfect day for golf there 39 pairs hit off with great expectations and excitement in the hope that this would be their year to be in the winner’s circle.
Players agreed that the new format of 4 players, two pairs, worked well and certainly made for a quicker 27 hole game.
The course played as expected for the end of winter with skinny lies making chipping difficult and the greens held their own challenges whilst awaiting renovation in three days time.
Cocktails commenced in the Star Room around 5.15pm which most considered the best part of the day. Most of the winners were there to receive applause and congratulations for a game well played, as we know foursomes is the hardest game of all to play and if you come out winners you have done well.
Thank you to all for a great day of golf the BBQ ‘boys’ Bob Saunders and Murrell Jarvis, Murrell also did the first 18 hole cards! There is a lot of preparation to run the foursomes Captain Wendy and President Jan did a fantastic job as did all the Committee, the day ran like clockwork, thank you to all who assisted.
This event is sponsored annually by the early morning Tuesday Swampie’s Golf section to the tune of $200 thanks to them for making the prize amounts sensational for the happy winners:-
