Hi All Our best turn out this season, 13 of us, so we went out as 3 3balls and 1 4 ball. No score cards for the 4 ball, so can`t comment on how they played but hope they had a good game. The `bushman` started on fire with 2 birdies and we all thought he had the game but somewhere along the line he decided to be the `bushman` and go looking for his balls. Mr Snell (The Captain) had a good start, then a stutter, then redeemed himself on the 3rd (his double points hole) then decided to join the `bushman` looking or his balls. Daniel P arrived with his new clubs (another set!!!) and decided to set the course on fire paring the first 3 holes, and then joined ` bushman` and `Captain` looking for his balls. Richard played a very good solid game and came in with a good score that could of won on another day. John Wilfort had a good solid start but drifted off towards the end. Big Barry Stevens, after not having played with us all for a while, had a steady game but the points were not on his side. Sandip had not the best of games, a couple of holes not too bad, but they couldn`t save his score !! And myself, started off with a shot down the right hand side then decided to hit bunker for my 2nd shot, roll out on to the top and onto the green and finished with a 15ft putt for a birdie, in my mind this was my Wednesday night, then i had the calling from `Captain` `Bushman` and Daniel P to join their club in the bushes !! Young Alex decided to teach us all a lesson (and how to play golf!) that night with a great round. Great turn out, great evening, looking forward to next week Regards John Hawkins

Very good turn out this Wednesday night with 9 people playing, so we went out as 3 3 balls and played swindle.
Excellent start from Andy Howes chipping in for a birdie on the 1st and going on to get a birdie on the 2nd
In the same team Mr Snell (captain) had an excellent start and a nice par on the 2nd then gradually got worse all the way through! A good round for Dan Garland who played fairly solid all the way round. John Wilfort played very well again a solid round from him, shame about the 2 blow outs! Congratulations to Andy Mace who had an excellent round and taking the pot with 19 pts which also included a blowout, well done mate!
I had to pull out a couple of holes in as i hurt my leg and had to retire. Good game from Daniel Palfrey, who was looking like he was going to take the game but went downhill from the 5th to the 8th then redeemed himself on the 9th with a par. Some great holes by Mikki Schmidt and even though he only came in with 13pts this included 4 blow outs. A slow start from Bernie Whitmarsh but improved from the 3rd then a blow out slowed him down again and ended his chances.
Another good evening and again the weather held out for us. And if anyone needs to know anything about any of the medals and trophies in the clubhouse just ask me, amazing what you do when you`re stuck in there for an hour and a half!!!!

Good turn out last night. 8 of us there to make 2 - 4 balls.
First team myself, Russ Newman, Dan Garland and Mikki Schmidt, Second Team Mr Snell, Daniel Palfrey, Fred Coombes and Dave Hannay, tonight’s format was “Wednesday Night “Swindle Double Points On Selected Holes.,
Lovely evening for golf and some very good golf played.
My 4 ball went out first with a terrible start for myself and Russ, a decent drive down by Mikki and an excellent drive straight to the green for Dan G who then finished with a great birdie. 2nd hole started no better for me with a dreadful shot into the rough and Dan G deciding to go looking for the 9th tee with his ball. Russ and Mikki did decent drives. Dan G recovered it with a brilliant shot to the green with him and Mikki finishing it with very decent pars. Russ and I finally decided to remember how to play golf, recovering to go back level after 2 holes down, on the 9th we were back to 1 down with a chance of going level, with me grabbing a par and Dan G putting a nail in the coffin with another brilliant birdie.
Captain's 4 ball all played well with some good final scores. A great start, and game, by Captain and Daniel P, with Dave and Fred holding their own against them. A couple of fines may be in order for this team with balls dropping by us on the green before we`d finished !!!! But I’ll leave that for the committee to decide (Captain!!)
The evening finished with Captain coming in with a very impressive 25pts and removing Dan Gs big smile, piped at the post by 1 pt
Finished evening with a couple of drinks in the club house.
Great evening had by all.
