Only three members were nails enough to take on the deep frost challenge yesterday. Determined to
bag some valuable Winter League points enjoy a beautiful morning’s golf, we paused briefly for a cuppa to allow the course to defrost a bit. It was so cold, even Kay took a hot drink (no, not hot coke, who asked that?) Then we set off into dazzling sun, risking potential frost-blindness.
Having spent an inordinate amount of the time on the first searching for white balls, Kay very kindly lent Elena & I a yellow ball each to help speed up play. These came with a STERN warning not to lose them (as we only had 3 between us). Spoiler alert: Elena & I happily handed our borrowed balls back after the 9th. I’m sad to report that Kay lost her own on the 4th! Luckily I found an orange ball in the vicinity so play could continue with neon balls all round!
Apart from struggling to find our balls, it was also a challenge to get the tees into the ground…
Back to the clubhouse for more hot drinks, lunch and biscuits.
Scores on the doors:
1st Gill 14 points
2nd Elena 13 points
3rd Kay 9 points
