NEW YEARS SCRAMBLE!
Friday 3rd January -To mark the
first golf event of 2014 the traditional New Year's Scramble drew a
large field for the time of year with 33 golfers. The course
was once again presented in fine condition with the slick greens
measuring over 10 on the stimp meter.
Enjoying some fine golf the top 6 teams all posted sub-par net
scores along the way. Yvonne Welling won Nearest the Pin on
hole 4 with a fantastic approach to the difficult par 3. The
third best score third with a solid gross 69 was the team of Nathan
Kendall, Catherine Shackleton and Kim Davis. A score
consisting of 5 gross birdies on their way to recording a net
63.9. Equaling the winning gross score of 65 the team of
Stuart Ingram, Iain Liversage and Andy Jones had to settle for
runners up spot after an early birdie streak of 7 in 9 holes saw
them finish with a net 61.3, a strong score and unfortunate to not
have a foot on the winner's podium this week. Topping the
field in the New Year's Scramble was Aaron O'Hara, Ron Boons and
Mike Reed with an impressive net 59.8, breaking that allusive 60
barrier to seal the victory. Congratulations to all who took
part on what was a very enjoyable day.

The next competition in the Almouj Calendar sees the
