May 2012 Outing Review
After a period of wet weather the expectation for Ramsey was it may be a bit wet underfoot. How wrong can you be, the Pro confirmed the day before that in fact River level was low and that the course was dry. This turned out to be the case and I must say that the course and greens in particular we in very good condition. No excuses then!
Kevin Hingle and Colin Keal had the battle of the new clubs, a shiny white 3 wood against the Adams hybrid. The 3 wood a clear winner after 9 but let down Kevin on the back nine to allow the Adams hybrid to win the contest, for this day anyway.
Trolleys can have a mind of their own at times as Colin Savage and Robin Watts would tell you from their offsite follies activities that would otherwise have deserved a mention. But today we did witness some careless driving on the course, trolley driving that is. Hole 13 was nearest the pin and as you all know Peter Harris gets a bit excited when it’s nearest the pin hole, today he missed the green with ball and his trolley. Finding the bunker with both. Can we extend the Bunker flunker to include how long it takes to retrieve from sand or is it the first nomination for “Wally of the Year” You will find out in November at the Follies supper. Until then perhaps a few more misdemeanours will occur to save Peter.
Nearest the Pin was won by Geoff Delany, whilst not having the best of days did provide a quality moment to win a bottle of Port – Well done.
Scores overall were low, which is surprising as the conditions were set for a good day. 3rd place went to Brian Bates, 2nd to Colin (Hybrid) Keal. Les turned around a last place finish in March to be the overall winner today with 31 points.
On to the next round which is the Presidents Cup at Elton Furze on Friday 22nd June.
