The September Meet
Legal Eagle soars at rainy Rutland County Golf Club
Twelve brave warriors turned up in very wet conditions at Rutland County for the latest leg in ‘The Race to The Cuckoo’.
The usual banter was evident in the clubhouse before proceedings commenced. Indeed John Wakefield had kindly brought in a copy of the local newspaper which had a picture of a long haired lout 40 years ago in a football team picture. Suffice to say the lout in question was now a member of FF!!
Just prior to playing I had a quick chat with Geoff D (legal eagle) who mentioned he did not feel great and was not looking forward to getting wet!!
And so onto the main event, I only have one unusual moment to report.
My partners Robin (B’stard) Watts and Roy Fletcher and I had just reached the par three thirteenth, when we saw Geoff (focused) Liscoe marching back toward the tee with a thunderous look in his eyes. We were all a bit worried and assumed he had lost his ball. Oh no, he had lost his scorecard and was wondering if we had found it!!!
In terms of the prizes, as the headline suggests our very own legal eagle Mr Geoff Delaney was first with 36 points, the lout was second on 35 and Mr Brian (Wonga) Bates was third with a very respectable 33 points.
Unfortunately no-one hit the green on the nearest the pin hole!! Maybe double the prize at the year-end finale??
Congratulations to all that turned up bearing in mind the conditions and I am sure all will agree that RCGC was in very good condition and was also very welcoming.
