Seniors Texas Scramble

It's not often that the seniors are beaten by the weather, but today was the exception. By mid-morning, the heavens opened and the course became unplayable. Luckily, all teams in the Texas Scramble managed to complete 9 holes, so prizes were awarded based on those scores. The winning team were Raymond Bilton, Steve Thompson & Gordon Turner with a score of 30.0. Second place went to Colin Cox, Mike Miller & John Day (31.3) followed by Barry Heath, Steve Vale & Dianne McIntyre (31.5).

Huge thanks to Judy Willson for not only providing additional prizes today but for her huge contribution to the club over many years. Judy is leaving us at the end of this month and will be greatly missed by all at the club.
