The weather had improved markedly since last week, despite the horrific forecast. We had 7 golfers line up for the February Medal.
Marena & I set off as the second pair behind Erica & Elena. Janette, Linda & Anne brought up the rear (not a euphemism).
We both managed to stonk our drives up to summerish distance!
And a couple of actual par 4s set us up nicely on the first hole. Ahead of us Elena had also started with a lovely wee 4.
The wind was pretty gusty which made club choice interesting (ie a lottery!) Unsurprisingly, there were no 2’s at all. The pot is building nicely…
Up ahead Elena in particular was having a great round through the first 7 holes. Unfortunately for her card, there followed some unexpected blippage on the 8th and 9th before normal service resumed. Other notable scores on the front 9 included: Elena notched up a 3 on the 4th, Anne bagged a 4 on the 6th and Linda scored a nice 3 on the 7th. I was the only one to blag a 5 on the 8th.
Either the conditions got trickier or we all faded as everyone (except Elena) scored a wee bit higher on the back 9.
Marena was the only one who managed a 3 at Spion Kop on the way back. But the scores were less noteworthy on the whole…
After 18 long holes, we had…
1: Gill (74)
2: Elena (78)
3: Marena (82)
