Well the sun certainly shone on the righteous for our visit to Southwold on 20th September. There was a black line on the A12 but on the course by the sea all was well. Southwold was in excellent condition which was reflected in the scores and we were made most welcome. Gareth seeing to our every need and still smiling in spite of the change of date, different requirements for our meal and allowing two of us to play just siz holes. His also gave us a dozen balls for nearest the pin on the 10th and 18th. A bacon roll and coffee on arrival made the day very special.
Eleven of us played a team event with the best three scores to count, and thanks to impressive play by my two partners, Susan Seabrook and Wendy Jarvis not to mention our ghost in the form of David Robinson, we won with an impressive 120 ponints. Second were Liz Jeary, Rosemary Digby, Victoria Watson and David Robinson. Nearest the pin on the 10th was Susan Seabrook and on the 18th Liz Jeary. We were delighted to have Julia Amey and David Sears join us for a few holes and supper.
Our best wishes go to Val Garrod after her horrendous accident falling in Woodbridge, suffering black eye, cracked patella on left knee and smasked right elbow joint. Wha a way to get out of a game! She really is a bionic woman now with two new hips and elbow. Also Johnny Johnson who is having an operation on his Thyroid on Friday. We do hope to see them up and about soon.
Our last game is at Rookery Park on 14th October 11 am tee off. Please let me know if you have not already done so if you are able to play. Buggies are available.
The Fiesta next year is at Tavira in Portugal from 4 to 18 February. Again let me know if you would like to join us or need more information.
