Hi to all,
Good day to everyone who played at Selborne Country Club on Saturday the 23rd of September, which was the start of the I C G L 2017/ 2018 season. The weather at the start was cloudy with intermittent light rain which continued until the last four ball came in and then the clouds burst open. So the saying that it never rains on a golf course when you’re playing, held out, just.
The course was in great condition except for the greens which had had some treatment to them and they were slow at times , but judging by the results they treated us fairly. The winner on the day was Shaun Moran from Relcol Engineering on 133 points off a 6 handicap ,John will have some delight in clipping his golfing wings and handicap. The team prizes went to Relcol Engineering on 133 , second Trutrade 130 with a special guest appearance from Dale O’Brien and third RNP Consultancy on a count out with 127 points.
The nearest to the pins went to Luke Pillay on the 4th, Geoff Palm on the 6th, Mark Thorpe on the 11th and Marizelle Nichol on the 15th. There were 8 two clubs won and well done to all the winners and runners up.
Again a real thank you to all our sponsors who make the day for the teams playing and keeps the league ticking over.
On a sad note, our thoughts are with our ex captain Jack Callaghan who, with his wife Marianne, went back to England to get specialized medical treatment for her. Sadly she passed away this month.
That’s all for now from your Scribe.
