THE welcome drop in recent temperatures, although still pretty hot and humid, helped the 26 members and three guests who turned out to play at Roda. Everyone kept their eye out for the approaching rain clouds which thankfully didn’t arrive.
Unfortunately, the course didn’t play as well as it did the day before when some of the members had played there privately with some recently spiked greens. Despite this, some excellent scores were posted with Barry Roehrig and Theo Boelhouwer both carding 40 points. The results on the day were:
3rd – Chris Hamblett 28 points
2nd – Brian Butler (31)
1st Phil Birtwistle, (31)
3rd – Ken Flaherty (34)
2nd – Colin Rust (36)
1st – Theo Boelhouwer (40)
3rd – Darren Hancock (35)
2nd – Jamie Rorison (37)
1st -Barry Roehrig (40)
NTPs on the par 3’s (open to all) went to John Osborne (hole 2), Eva Pettersson (7 and 13), and Kyree Skarsmoen (11). The Abacus was won by Norman Padmore, but as he wasn’t there to collect it was awarded to Marg Birtwistle. Best Guest prizes went to winner Peter Devlin (36) who pipped runner-up Jim Starbuck on countback.
An enjoyable day was had by all and grateful thanks were passed on to all the staff at the Roda.
