11 members of Farnborough Rotary Club and two guests enjoyed a great day out yesterday.

The weather was glorious when our first player, Rotarian Dave Thomas, stepped up to the first tee at just after 9am.

The weather remained fantastic and the course was in reasonable condition.

Now I play off 28 and there was the usual heckling about being a bandit, which may have been true considering some of my very lucky shots. Especially when you learn that I came in joint 2nd but on a countback of my points (of just 29) I was relegated to third.

Some of our players, play with good handicaps 12s 16s and 18s, so I don’t know how I did it but Hey Ho!

But the game was played in great spirit, the banter, which for me makes up part of the game was excellent, especially when one of my playing partners Geoff Robinshaw told us jokes and anecdotes all the way round the course.

The game is organised twice a year spring and autumn and on this occasion it was organised by Brian Fagg.

The winner was Laurie Dudley, who left before the presentation so is not featured in the photographs below, but as he won, he will organise the autumn event. Also not show in the photograph because he’d left early Andrew Clarke

After the game we headed back to the CourtHouse pub for a beer and a delicious lunch .
