President’s Day 2021

THE DAY. It was an early start for the Competitors in the President’s Cup. It was the largest field to take to the Fairways in recent memory. Mr. President had organised a full programme to celebrate his final year in office. The Juniors had played their Texas Scramble earlier in the week and the Ladies played for their Lady President’s Cup on the Friday and Saturday, to accommodate as many tee times as possible for the men. Inevitably it was a long day, but the speed of play did not hamper the standard of golf, net 63 being the winning score. The Halfway house refreshments boosted players energy levels, and there was a drink at the Bar waiting for all when they came off the course.
THE NIGHTOh What a Night !
