Hola!

Our rescheduled event at Richmond Park was very enjoyable. We started with a short sharp shower, but by the time we donned waterproofs it had stopped. As it was quite humid we soon took off the waterproofs and for around five holes the showers continued. So short there was no time to put up the brollies. The course was playing well with lush fairways and good greens. The water, quite hidden, as were the bunkers, caught a few of us out, but that adds to the enjoyment!! We were joined by two new faces from Woodbridge golf club, Rita and John Steers. Also a welcome back to Carol Perks.

The winners with 83 points were, Gillian Gardner Smith, myself, David Robinson and John Steers. Closely followed by Julia Amey, Carol Perks Godfrey Camilleri and David Sears with 82 points. Nearest the Pin was David Robinson. Julia Amey organised the event and as usual everything was done superbly. The meal was excellent and the large helpings particularly enjoyed by the men. Custard rules forever!.

The next event at Gog Magog in Cambridge on 30 August, 11 a.m. for coffee and bacon roll, with 12 noon tee off is well supported and anyone who has not let me know they are coming should do so by the end of this week. Plus those needing special dietary requirement and/or buggies also need to let me know a.s.a.p . Cost is £44 per head, £10 deposit from everyone please!

September 10 Bungay Suffolk 1 p.m. tee off

Autumn Break Hanbury Manor Hertfordshire on 11, 12, 13 October. Price per person for two sharing a room is £314 for two nights, three dayʼs golf and two three course dinners. Iʼ m afraid the single supplement is expensive at Hanbury Manor and the price for the break is £474 for single occupancy.

Sadly the trip to Portugal at the end of the year has had to be cancelled due to lack of numbers, but will go ahead next year, details of that and the Fiesta in February soon.

Hola!

Our penultimate one day meeting in the UK at Gog Magog old course was great fun. Twenty of us enjoyed the course, and were made very welcome by everyone at the club. The marshall Mike was so helpful and the catering manager Alan made sure we were all looked after. The weather of course was the icing on the cake! We welcomed two new faces Linda Roberts and Margaret Atlee and were glad to see our old friend Gillie Perry from St Ives.

The winning team with 100 points were Pat Edworthy, Di Sammons, Reg Auchterlonie and David Robinson. David Robinson also won nearest the pin on the short 9th par three. Having been in the winning team last time and also being nearest the pin he must by now be building a good wine lake ! I will have to see how I can nobble him at Bungay! Second with 95 points were Gillie Perry, Linda Roberts, Deiter Koderisch and David Sears. Third with 92 points were Lucy Godfrey, Jacky Waghorn, Chris Everitt and Dave Sammons.

The next event isSeptember 10 Bungay Suffolk 1 p.m. tee off £40 pp I have booked the only two buggies, so please let me know if you require one so I can sort teams.
