Well blow me down, and the windy cold fronts striking the area last weekend nearly did just that.
The rather high scores by our local golfers are a fair indication as to how difficult a task it was to keep their balls on the fairway, in such powerful cross winds, while competing for Ben Howell's three club event.
Simon Pye performed best in the difficult conditions carding net 66 allowing Simon to carry off the winners trophy.
Danny Cassells, with net 70, secured second place, while Greg Atkins and Roger Mason, both with net 72, shared third spot.
Next Saturday, 22nd of August, a club trophy is scheduled for competition.
