Club Championship qualifying rounds...
Saturday morning was perfect golfing weather and then in the afternoon there was a change. Heavy rain and distant lightening for around 40 minutes interrupted the completion of the round for some 34 players. However, it did test out the drainage works (not the best time to do this) with 26mm of rain but it is working well - see image opposite of the 6th/11th hole.
3rd Hole Green side "water feature"...
A better scoring round due to improving course conditions and preferred lies. A strong field of 63 players competed and well done to Robert Eriksson winning with 40 points on a count back from Martin Flaxman.
NTP on the 11th was Sam Mulholland and the 14th Pro-Pin went to John El-Chah.
