November Greensomes

After a week of torrential rain and gale force winds, the November Greensomes was played today in perfect conditions. Considering the weather we have had, the course was in superb condition and credit and thanks must go to the greenkeepers for this. The excellent conditions were reflected in the scoring with 13 teams scoring 40 points or more.
The winners (retaining their title from last year) were Conor Dick & George Stockley with 45 points. Behind them were four other teams on 43 points. Despite having a blob on the 1st hole, Curtis Macgeever & Shaun Irlam took the runners-up spot on count-back from Mike Lucey & Karen Hugo, Tony Glover & Mark France and Rowland Barfield & Nick Powell.

(Thanks to all competitors for filling in their scorecards correctly - it certainly makes it easier for the scorers!!)
