‘Beat The Heat’ Short Course Challenge

11 July 2013Back

Thursday 11th July - On a fine a summer evening the golf course was presented with some slightly different challenges to what our members usually face on the Championship Course.  10 of the coastal holes were modified to Par 3 length yardages with various challenges along the way.  As opposed to the conventional teeing grounds, the tee markers were placed on awkward lies, on the fairway and semi rough to offer some unique lines into the green. 

 

A strong turnout for the time of year, a total of 17 members participated in the evenings event.  Playing in a stokeplay format, each competitor received 50% of their handicap index to calculate a net score for the day.  With a course par of 30, 6 of the entries finished at net par or better, one being BJ Cotton taking third place alone with a net score of 28.  The two lowest rounds of the day equaled a net 27 which came from David Townsend and Yvonne Welling.  Despite two gross birdies on his card, Yvonne just edged David on countback of over the final 6 holes.  Congratulation to Yvonne on a very solid gross round of 35.
