Sunday June 17 Great day for golf today at The Sands.
Weather was overcast and a bit chilly, but little to no wind made for ideal conditions, which was backed up by some of the massive scores posted. Winner in the medley was Michael McAllum (17) who scored a huge 36 points! Runner up on the day was Lindsay Mann (24) whose score of 35 points would just about be a winners score on any other day. The ball pool for the day ran down to 35 points. Special mention to Lindsay Mann who scored and EAGLE on the 12th hole. Well done!
