Falmouth golfers out in force for Christmas Draw Scramble
There was heavy frost in Southern California last weekend but certainly no sign of it at Falmouth Golf Course on Saturday as the gents and ladies turned out in force for the Christmas Draw Scramble, with every tee booked plus a good few doubled up by the four person teams.
Brian Craig, Andy Kemp, Rik Shaw and Wendy Plummer combined well to card a seven under par 65 for a net 58-1 but could only manage fifth spot on a day of great scoring.
Tony Drew, Brian Shovlin, Gill Norris and Andrew Bonnett carded a brilliant gross 63 score of 9 under par gross for a net 56 and rightly thought they would be in with a good shout of at least finishing in the top three places, but alas they finished fourth!
Ben Browning, Bob Aggus, Rose Bailey, in the company of the club president Terry Dickinson were letting everyone know they were “doing OK” out on the course but their superb gross of 10 under par 62 for a net 55-4 proved only good enough for third place.
Charlie Scorse, Scott Pedlar, Angus McArthur and Roger Dunstan returned a brilliant 11 under par gross 61 for what must have felt like an untouchable net 54-3 with the winning speech all agreed upon, until news came through that Paul Collins, Dave Walsh, Mark Butland and Peter Wilkening had returned a staggering 16 under par gross 56 net 50-9 to win by a surprisingly comfortable margin.
For the record they had birdies on holes one through to seven inclusive, then slipped up with a par at the eighth.
Then it was all birdies from 9 to 11 before the 12th yielded an eagle before another “breather” at the 13th where they had a par (bit unlucky that!) before gathering themselves again by playing the last five holes in four under par.
A stunning performance and a thoroughly deserved first prize.
This Saturday is the eagerly anticipated two clubs and a putter Turkey Trot with a 9.30 am start followed by the legendary Cut and Carve and Carols.
The following Wednesday (18th) is the Monthly Medal sponsored by Kelsall Steele Investment Services. A boutique provider of professional, informed and impartial financial advice.
