The April Meet – Burghley Park
Friday 25th April was the second outing of the year and 10 members took part despite rain which was forecast but thankfully arrived with only a few holes to play.
When the first group teed off. Colin Humphries proved that a golf club can remove a metre of turf.
On the 5th hole Brian sank a 5 metre putt then on the next hole the same thing but this time a 6 metre putt, this was longer than his drive.
Geoff Delaney failed to play out of a bunker on the 14th 4, yes 4 times. I bet Brian could have putted out of it.
Colin Savage hit the same tree 3 times when playing the last hole but carried on to the end, what a hero.
We sat in a group in the bar and someone asked about the ownership of a jacket on the floor, no response from anyone.
Ham, egg and chips was consumed in record time and we left only for Brian the master putter to realise that the jacket was in fact his over trousers.
The event was won by John Wakefield and Colin H, who re-turfed the first tee, took the nearest the pin prize on the 3rd hole. A lovely course was enjoyed by all.
