Thanks to Ian Wilson for getting so many Senior men to play & for entering into the spirit of Halloween, adorning his long wig & ‘Alice Band’ with flashing eyeballs. On that note, Best Dressed Man went to the only ‘Reaper’ to wear & be seen in costume 🤣, Alan Barton. Di Owen won Best Dressed Lady as a dramatic eye-catching black & white skeleton. Best dressed team proved to be a popular decision: Carlie, Carole, Chris, Stuart & Ollie. Thanks to the ‘Fantastic Five’, for providing everyone with an amazing Halloween experience, plus Tiffany & Di for their delicious: walnut & coffee/lemon sponges; decorated & chocolate-coated themed shortbread biscuits & cupcakes; & jam & clotted cream scones! So many golfers thanked me for my generosity & the incredible food; the pleasure was all mine & I can’t but re-iterate thanks to them for playing & thanks to all of Carlie’s team, including Brett & his brilliant team of green keepers for our wonderful course.
On 31st October, Josh & Adrian Webb & I participated in another Halloween event at the Driving Range. We thoroughly enjoyed the competition & spicy chicken wings, chips & an alcoholic drink for just £6! – It was a pity, but due to several reasons this event wasn’t better supported.
In the third Mixed Winter Fun on 3rd November, 16 golfers played a 4Ball AM AM Betterball with any two best Stableford scores to count. In their inaugural appearance, Wayne Boden, Vicky Rogers & Steve & Di Owen won 1st place with an impressive 85 points. 2nd, Owen Carruthers, Jenny Andrews & Tony & Penny Marchant.
Finally, the fourth Mixed Winter Fun on 16th November supported ‘Children in Need’. Well done to Ollie, as ‘Beat Pudsey’ on the 10th. Thank you to Carlie, Matt & Harry for serving free coffees outside the shop & for supporting the golfers & Pudsey. Steve & Di Owen together with Ade & Paula Barrie came 2nd over 9 holes (on countback over the last 3) to Wayne Boden & Vicky Rogers, & Tim Ball & Tine Sylvester with 43 points.
