Luckily all the dreadful forecasts came to naught. The weather was positively clement for our first ever (hopefully not the last?) Glenkens Men's Shed Greensomes. We had a grand turnout of 12 reckless entrants for the golf and several more for the putting. Ready to go, we paired up in beginner/golfer pairs and set off for some fun!

Congratulations to our convenor Jeff for organising a splendid day with among other things were individual team forms for the meal. Portpatrick golf club did us proud. The day was as good as you get in February with no wind or rain, a rarity these days.

CORRECTION _ Ian MCIlvenna would have won by virtue of a better inward six and a handicap of 28 rather than the 27 recorded on his card from Brian Duguid. So Brian is the winner. The rule is that a player is responsible to ensure that the handicap recorded on his scorecard is correct. If it is higher than his handicap, and that affects the number of strokes he receives, he is disqualified from the competition. If it is lower than his handicap, his score stands [Rule 6-2b]. Indeed it was a really close scoring day with 4 on 33 points and 3 on 32 points. See the Detailed Result.
Well done Terry who as normal kept a steady round in winning the 36 Hole Trophy. (more…)
