Swansea Golf Club Report Saturday 24th September
Despite the rain at the start of Saturday’s Canadian Foursomes event, twenty five members hit off with one very notable member who went home to sit beside the fire. The weather improved as the afternoon progressed and members thoroughly enjoyed the two person team competition. Swansea Probus Club generously provided the sponsorship for the competition.
The event was played in two divisions. The winners of division 1 were Ricky Wright and Max Hall. The very consistent Pat Hardcastle finished runner up. Third place was filled by Marion Gittus and Karl Wadley.
Division 2 winners were father and son combination, Steve and Ray Dart who had the best score of the day with a net 56.5.Runners up were Steve Kenny and Chris Howell. The Siepen combination of Sally and Garry won third prize.
Nearest to the pin winners were Fran Dowling, Ricky Dance and Ricky Wright.
The members are grateful to those who turned up for the monthly working bee. Their efforts to improve the course’s playing conditions are very much appreciated .Many thanks.
A big thank you to Kevin and Val Kemp, Peter Blythe and Bruce Press for their generosity by providing the machinery to help with the project.
