After my round on Saturday, I bumped into the ever upbeat Kieran Costello, who looked decidedly confused. He went on to explain that after 6 holes he had amassed 18 points. This was definitely going to be his day (again), 24 points after 9 holes and then....... 32 points after 18 holes!
Well Kieran , that's Golf. In that 1 round are all the reasons we can love & hate this great game.
On Sunday it was the 2020 Final of the Rafferty Cup , a summer comp. With all things Covid meaning the final was played a little later than normal. But played it was,betweenRicky Townsend & Graham Dickens over 36 holes. With Ricky coming out on top of this hard fought battle. Very well done both of you, especially....
Ricky Townsend Rafferty Cup Winner 2020 !
Also on Sunday David Morris & David Boothroyd played their 2nd round match in the Daily Mail Foursomes Competition at Bush Hill Park against a pairing from Ilford golf club. It was a tight match, all square going up the 18th but theBush Hill Park men held there nerve & came out victorious 1 up. An excellent result for both Davids'. They now have a well deserved break before the next round in 2021
In recent times there have been a number of issues raised regarding SLOW PLAY !
I am aware that with so many new members in recent months the course is now much busier, but please remember it is the responsibility of each member to keep up with the group in front, not just ahead of the group behind. If the group behind is waiting and you have lost touch of the group in front, please let the group behind play through.
This coming Weekend:
Winter League Wk4
Sunday is Captains Driver "Texas Scramble " AGAIN, lets hope the weather is a little kinder this time round.
Play well, stay safe
