Phew!!! Challenge complete AND it certainly was a long day but incredibly worth it! With a tee off at 4.30am, we watched each ball go far into the morning drizzle and low dark cloud. Luckily, we found them again and carried on through a muggy drizzle! 8.30am arrived with giant breakfast baguettes and coffee delivered by Jill and we dined alfresco under a tree on the 4th green. As the drizzle came harder and the wind picked up, the wet weather gear had to make a full appearance!
At 11.30am it was time for a quick shower and change, when the sun eventually put his hat on for a while and the shorts came out ready for the 3rd round!
By the start of the 4th round at 4pm, the wind had brought quite a chill and thanks to Sandy and Jill with their snaxpax of goodies, energy levels were boosted again (we won’t mention tempers!).
Eventually we finished at 8.45pm with some quite amazing individual scores under the circumstances!

Our thanks go out to the fellow golfers of whose games we steamed through and their words of encouragement and applause. To Tim and the golf shop staff for their assistance and use of the buggy for Jill, Christine & Sandy to keep check on us – special thanks to them!
