Torquay Golf Club – August 23, 2018
MONDAY was once again time for the Vets/Seniors game. Dodgy weather conditions once again kept the field down to just 47 players.
Wind, rain and golf were the obstacles for today, but as always, the hot roast rolls at the end made it all worthwhile.

Tuesday the ladies took to the course with huge smiles as at last the sun was shining and the wind disappeared.

Friday the game was stroke and you could hear the sighs from golfers as they checked in to pay their competition fees. Weather conditions had calmed and the sun finally made an appearance so scores were low. Ross Martin had a great round finishing first with 66.
