Loose Cannons and LEGS have been challenging each other since April 2013 and this was the 7th game in the series held at Staffield Country Resort. We had 12 flights with 24 players from each side competing in a best ball Stableford competition.
After a slight delay due to quite a few ladies arriving late (some miscommunication on the tee-off time apparently) we all got off on the West Course at around 8:30am. The weather was wonderful and the course was in great shape making it a very good morning’s golf.
Most players completed the round by 1pm and we had a lunch set up in the clubhouse restaurant where the prize giving was done.
In preparing the flights for today’s match we took all the players’ USGA handicaps, adjusted them all for the slope of the course with men 18 and below playing off the blue tees and those above 18 playing the white tees, and then adjusting the teams to try and match the combined handicaps which we did within one shot. These matched pairs worked very well resulting in some very close games and overall an extremely tight match.
The overall match was a draw with Loose Cannons winning 5 of the matches, LEGS winning 5 matches and two matches were drawn. So 6 points to each side for match No 7.
So after 7 matches there is still only 1 point separating the two teams with Loose Cannons with a total of 35 match points and LEGS having a total of 34 match points. We look forward to the next match in the series.
Full results and overall scores detailed below.
The best men’s pair score was Mike Smith and Iain Wise with 49 points (RM300) and the second best Men’s pair score was Martin Walsh and Graham Cadman with 37 points.(RM150).
For the ladies the best pair score was also 49 points from Gina Blackwell and Yuni Rhoden (RM300). Second best ladies pair score was 47 points from Yani Soermurni and Anita Hourigan (RM150).

Well done to all our winners and thanks to all participants who made the day a great success.
