News from the Course – 29th of March
President vs Captain Day cancelled due to weather conditions
The first annual President vs Captain Day was to be held on the 29th of March. Unfortunately a week of heavy rain, although good for the course, was enough to have this new event cancelled and replaced by a single stableford. 57 members still fronted to play on Saturday and they were greeted by a course in excellent condition with only a few puddles on the 2nd and 14th fairways.
We were lucky on the day as course superintendent, John Duncan, had just opened up the back nine holes on Friday afternoon. John and his team should be applauded for the sterling work that they did in preparing the course to such good condition under such difficult circumstances and allowing the comp to be played.
