Twenty six members and twenty six guests enjoyed
a lovely days golf at Royal Norwich. As you will have noticed
by now the report usually starts with the weather and this one
is no different. The sun shone on one and all, throughout the
morning and into the afternoon, with a relativly mild wind following
the recent coastal winds.
The fairways have really started to go brown and those of you
that can remember back to the summer of 76 at the Royal, that
is how they are now, the greens however have still kept green
and were a pleasure to put on, the quickest I have seen this year!!
scores reflected the conditions with the winners Gordon Cartwright
and David Wolstenholme (both members of the Royal Norwich)coming
in with 45 points.
In second place were David Lusha and his guest Ron Bridge with
42 points, in third place also with 42 points Frank Myers and
his guest Gordon Evans, in fourth place also off 42 points was
Roger Duffield and his guest Michael Haw. Booby prize was narrowly
missed by Kevin Woolley and his guest Stan. Stannard, this went
to the member who came second last year, James Gregory and his
guest Cliff Haycroft (how the mighty fall!!!), better get a different
guest next year James!!!
After the golf we had a lovely meal provided by the catering staff.
The members and guests were welcomed to the club by club past
captain, Gordon Cartwright and the response was given by our Society
captain Keith Bass, who thanked Gordon and the club for presenting
an excellent course for us and the caterers for the excellent
The prizes were presented jointly by our Captain and President,
they are starting to make a great double act!!
The secretary thanked Keith Bass for his help with the issuing
of the cards in the morning and for scoring when they were handed
back and also to Alan Hill for his assistance not only on the
day, but for his work behind the scenes in supporting the secretary.
The secretary then wished everyone a safe journey home.
