Today the weather report called for rain, but the golf gods were kind to us once again and the rain never materialized. The conditions were generally good, although several back nine fairways have been recently cored and sanded, and were soft and did not provide much run. All the greens which were cored and sanded earlier in the week (small-tine coring) have completely recovered and the greens rolled very well.
We had five players: four members and one friend, Colin. We played our usual five-ball skins game. Some highlights: Both Andrew and 5Points birdied twice — Andrew birdied holes 1 and 17, and 5Points birdied holes 5 and 12. There were six 4-pointers, including the four birdies mentioned, plus a birdie by Colin (Hole 11) and a par by Les (Hole 8). Hole 18 ended in a tie, and with a single group our policy is that the skin for that hole is not awarded (it is awarded to the winner of the Stableford in blind skins, in which there is more than one group playing). Thus only 24 skins were awarded.
Here are the results:
- Winner: Colin (40 points)
- Runner-up: Andrew (36 points)
- Hole 3: Andrew
- Hole 7: No one
- Hole 12: Graham (edged Andrew by six inches) x 2
- Hole 17: Andrew
