This was the biannual challenge between Loose Cannons and LEGS and the ladies hosted this game at their home club of Impian Golf Club. We had a perfect number of 18 a side making a convenient 9 flights for a shot-gun start on holes 10 through 18.
Everyone showed up promptly and we managed to avoid a delay in the registration with the club agreeing for us to pay later which was good. Buggies and caddies were all ready so we all got off to a sharp start at just before 8:30am.
The weather was good albeit a little humid and sticky. The course was in good condition although some of the greens had been scarified making it rather uneven and unpredictable in those areas.
We all got finished by 12:30pm or so and sat down for an arranged lunch at the club before the final results were announced.
Many thanks to all the people who helped organise this match and to all the participants who made this a most successful day out.
The past 3 matches have been very close with two matches drawn and one match won by the ladies …. making them one up overall to date.
Today the men came good and won 6 games with the ladies winning 3 games …. so a convincing overall win for Loose Cannons – well done to all the Loose Cannons players for a great result.
This means that we are now tied in the overall score to date. Loose Cannons look forward to arranging the next game around April time frame next year and continue the good work that we demonstrated today!
