Match Captain – Rants!

The vast majority of members have been very positive about a bit of feedback, so here goes.  Only positive rants this week, thanks to all those who took time to complete their finishing times and their time teeing off on the 9th tee.  This data helps ascertain how long each format should take.  Saturdays 4BBB Medal saw 188 golfers get around the golf course in between 3hrs 45mins and 4hrs 10mins.  The early finishers would indicate that this format of competition should take just under 4hrs.

Well one small rant – 4 groups scored the Medal as a Stableford, 3 of which NR’d on one or more holes so were DQ’d.  The clue was on the top of the card where it said 4BBB Medal!  Slightly unfair because we did reschedule things, but please confirm before posting your score.

It was nice to see Len Ingram back on the course kitted out with protective hard hat and visor.

Although the greens had been hollow tined the green staff had done a great job and the putting surfaces were pretty good.  The pain is over now, and with some warm weather things should improve dramatically.

The big surprise was 17 where some of our bigger hitters struggled to score par.  Only 3 groups gross birdied 17, with far more bogeys than pars recored.

The tees will be right back next weekend for the Jubilee Cup!

A great score by the winners, Steffan gross birdied 3 and 6 and James gross birdied 16 and 17 for a great finish.
