7th October 2006 - Golf Day @ The Parc

After several years of 'arranging' the Golf day was finally organised (well done DB). It was held at the Parc golf club, Coed Kernew in-between Cardiff and Newport. The 'golfers' ranged from pretty good to bloody awful, in fact one of the 'golfers' claimed to have never before played...we didn't tell the club that of course...and he just happened to be the oldest Casual...to conquer this we hired buggies. However, Foxy struggled to grasp the process and after Shagger had fixed Foxy's golf bag to the cart at the first tee, upon driving off Shag realised that after the Fox had teed off, Foxy could be seen wandering the fifty odd yards in the general direction of his ball with bag over shoulder...He was made to walk from then on!

It probably wasn't a bad thing as after the 14th the buggy all but conked out with Shag forced to push start it at various intervals and the Richie/Shag pairing having to constantly keeping the buggy moving at all times...this involved 'great skill' in swapping drivers and jumping out whilst still on the move...!!

Both fourballs got progressively better - playing better ball rules. In the two matches Shag/Richie finished all-square with the Sage/Foxy partnership, and Winkie/Smitts beating DB/Jonny F.

A very good day was had by all, and even the weather was superb. Fortunately we didn't interfere too much with the Club Championship which was held the same day - much to our astonishment on arrival!!
