What a great competition at GY & Caister on Saturday the 14th September. The enthusiasm and hospitality of the GY & Caister players was infectious and made the day so enjoyable. There was great golf but as important some great camaraderie and sportsmanship. The course was in great conditions with fast running fairways and speedy greens. The weather was excellent and the level of competition was great but also friendly.
Blair Ainslie and Simon Clark teed off first and ended up first. It was a great round amassing 44 points including one of two eagles on the day on 15. It took the 2nd last group of Richard Morris and Peter Collins to threaten their lead but fell short by 1 point. in 3rd place on countback were the pair of Steve Greatrex and David Oliver on 41 points.
Nearest the pins were won by, Simon Clark, John Plane, Blair Ainslie and Mark Fiddy.
All in all a very successful competition with great food and hospitality and enjoyable golf. What more would you want? Unfortunately no players from Rookery or Bungay; however they really missed a super day.
Apart from the winners the Thursday League presented £100 to the home captain, Blair Ainslie, for the Prostate Cancer Charity.
A surprise on the day was meeting the Sperrins who had won the Tony Daniels Cup in 1979, 40 years ago! They didn't get a photo then so here is one now. Never too l;ate to celebrate a win!
