|"RAIN FAILS TO STOP PLAY"
It was with great north-western grit and reputed webbed feet that nine members of the Manchester Associates Golf Section braved the incessant rain for our annual Golf Day.
Boysnope Park was the venue and it was a pity that the sun did not shine to show off how well this relatively young course has matured.
The weather meant that we were playing “Millionaires Golf” having the course largely to ourselves. The rain and the rustle of waterproofs did not deter the players from playing a very competitive match.
Tom Wall took third place with a fine 31 points and also bagged a ‘nearest the pin’.
Mike Fairlee came second with 33 points winning two ‘nearest the pins’ in the process.
John Horrocks took the last ‘nearest the pin’.
Your correspondent had the honour of taking first place and being the first to lift the new trophy donated by Mike Fairlee. It does have to be stressed though that I had the advantage of Boysnope Park being my home course.
It was great to see new boys Eric Sumner, Mel Jackson and John Horrocks at the event and new participants are always welcome.
