The undulating topography was deceptive and the layout of the course posed a serious test for all players. There were several tough approaches and dog-legs made even tougher by the 10-15mph northerly wind that punished even slightly errant drives, particularly on the first nine holes. The greens were fast for the time of year, which tested many a putt!
After an enjoyable day’s play, all players welcomed the warmth of the clubhouse (a nippy day it was!), some drinks in the 19th and a hearty meal accompanied by prize-giving and short speeches. The players also raised £255 for ‘Help for Heroes’.
