Thursday saw another good field of 21 out playing a stroke event (on a hot day) for the chicken run. The winner was Trevor Price with 43-8-35nett. Nearest the pin on the eighth was Harold Rayner. A reminder to all players, you must mark the correct nine holes on the card and sign the card. Tomorrow is a stableford event on the back nine.
Not much rain fell on the course so many thanks to Bill and John for moving the foot valve to get another watering on the greens. At long last the desalination plant has arrived so hopefully by next week we will have the water for the greens.
