The recent weather has certainly taken command of the situation up here on the Common, writes John Bridgman.
If it isn’t the fog descending to prolong the start of play, then the deluges of rain have swamped areas on the course.
Plugged balls in both the rough and on the fairways had the playing of qualifiers being rescheduled or cancelled.
The early part of last week was good enough for the seniors to play a stableford competition in which three ball teams were pitted against one and other.
The outright winners with 92 points were Ian North, Glen Dawson and Tony Marshall. Home in second place came Bill Mason, Steve Unsworth and Roy Barber with 85, and third were Alistair Robertson, Malcolm Pledger and Geoff Aylott on 83.
The midweek stableford was won by Ian Dure with 40 points. Second place went to Dave Freeman on 35, and third was Chris Tonkin on 34.
The weekend competition with prizes in three divisions had Gary Bourne 39 points win the first division.
Second went to Peter Lawrence on 38 and third place taken by Chris Hatherley on 32.
Division Two saw Dave Sandry home with 40 points from Tony Barr in second with 39. Third place was Scott Howarth with 38.
Division Three had Nick Beaton home with 39 points, Colin Stevens on 38 and in third place Phil Sims with 37.
Another weekend of golf has once again seen persons not turning up to play at allotted tee times, and not informing the committee as to why they are absent!
Golf is steeped in etiquette, and it saddens me to think that those individuals who, by their absence cause other golfers to lose out on the day, cannot, in this day of wonderful communication, pick up the phone and tell somebody.
On that most pertinent note I wish those of you who do turn up, happy whacking, cheers, John.
