This was the milestone day, as we celebrated Andrew Robinson’s 300th game for the Cannons. We had 5 full flights, which unfortunately at the club’s request, all started from 1 st tee on the Southern course.
17 players plus R.Moss esq. and Dick Stauffer joined Andrew for lunch at the Annexe where a lonnnggg lunch was enjoyed by all. Andrew many, many thanks for your generousity with the lunch bill, and the sleeves of balls.
Now onto the golf….
Staffield was in good condition but several fairways, primarily on the Northern 9, had been effected by yesterday’s storm, with 20 trees down and some of the fairways covered with leaves and branches. The club were working hard to start to clear the debris. The greens were back to their usual excellent, true, fast condition.
Some excellent scores on the day, worth highlighting. John Laidley was back to his imperious best with a 78 for 39 points, which included a front nine to par….!! Bernard 80 for 44 points. Erol came second with 90 for 47 points. None of which reached the winner on the day, Aftab, 90 for 48 points. Well done. Shame you did not come to lunch as your winnings went into the pot, as is customary. Aftab cut 12, Erol cut only 1…..!!
Andrew’s prizes of sleeve of balls went to Erol, second, Dave Hughes, 13 th and Andre had 2 sleeves for the honour of bringing up the rear.
