The annual Turkey Trot took place at our usual venue, Oliva Nova, this week and the Warblers, complete with Christmas hats but limited to three clubs and a putter took on the course which was in superb condition. Following the golf we all retreated to the BB Grill, alias the “Chicken Shack” for a Christmas get together and some tasty chicken.
As is our way there were prizes from first to twelfth, first prize being an excellent hamper and twelfth an “OXO Cube”, taking top spot was Rosemary Edwards scoring 38 points, a remarkable achievement with the limited clubs, second place went to Shaun O’Gorman also a great result considering his handicap. There were two players on thirty one, Will Evans and Fred Cooley, Will clinching third on C/B, Bob Edwards beat Mark Gaines on C/B both with thirty, Dave Knight just pipped Glyn Walters, next was yours truly followed in the last three places by David Edwards, Barbara Pollitt and Nick Berry bringing up the rear.
Nearest the pin prizes went to Shaun on the 3rd and 6th and Will Evans on the 11th with Bob Edwards closest on the on the 16th, there were golf balls for David Edwards and Will.
