The Trophy Game for November was played at Amverton Cove on a beautiful clear morning. There were 16 Loose Cannons which made for a nice 4 flights teeing off on two separate 9’s. Course conditions were a little wet and the fairways had been left to go a bit – so a bit heavier going than normal. The greens were good although most of them had recently been sanded making them on the slow side. We played from the blue tees as is normal at this course and were all finished in good time by just after 12pm.
Lunch was at the “usual” seafood restaurant just past the bridge on the right after leaving the club …. and NOT the alternative restaurant on the left which had been used last time as the usual one had been closed …. we still had 4 of our party head to this incorrect venue … but they joined us shortly thereafter and luckily had not ordered a banquet for 16 there!
We had some good scores today with half the field scoring better than their handicap. The clear winner today was Allan McNicoll who played an excellent round of 86 for 44 points – a personal best. Runner up was Andrew Robinson on 41 points and a gross of 89. Best gross was Geoff McLaws with a 78. Full results below:
