Saturday 8th July
The weather turned out to be a lot better than that forecast for Saturday, the forecast was for rain for much of the day but it was a mostly dry event, with just a few spots of rain towards the end.
Saturday was also the first time in nearly two years that the club had played the course off the blue tee’s which add another 307 yards to the length of the course, with all the rain of late the course was never going to play like the inland links its renowned for during the summer months, no hard fast fairway’s this year, which meant scores were never going to be as low as they have been in past years.
Still that didn’t stop Mick Whelan going on to win this year with an impressive score of 36 points beating young Thomas Ashton in the club house after a card play while Patrick Ashton was third with 35 points.
Jenny Wood won the Ladies event with Sarah Cook in second.
There was also an option to play Captains Day off the white tee, two chose to play off them with Patrick Oram beating Martin Evans by two points.
