President's Day was concluded at the third time of asking on Saturday in warmth more reminiscent of July and wet ground more typical of February. Conditions weren't easy with balls plugging deep into fairways and disappearing under leaves, contributing to a CSS of 69.
One man found conditions to his liking though. Gav Elly won by three shots with a stunning gross 72, net 62, including 12 pars and a birdie. Many congratulations to Gav.
Roy Parker came 2nd with nett 65, attracting an Exceptional Scoring adjustment bringing his handicap down to 14 and Steve Corfield took 3rd prize with a nett 66.
The President was received with acclamation at the Presentation. The Captain paid tribute to the excellent contribution the President has made over the last 2 years, especially his calming voice of experience & commonsense. You have a sense that some Presidents will be good, but its only with hindsight that you know whether they were great. I think we can all agree Dave has been a great President.
