Despite the promising forecast it was a cold and misty start for the early groups among our 25 starters.
And, as is often the case, those enjoying the better weather later on yielded the winning scores.
Our revised new season handicaps produced excellent strokeplay scores with Richard Edmonds winning with a nett 26 closely followed by John Forsyth on nett 27.
There was a log-jam behind them on 28 and 29.
Nearest the pin at the 7th, playing with Richard in the last group was George Tucker, who played a good shot to a tough pin tucked behind the right-hand bunker.
The day's only birdie was by David Wallace at the 9th./
