The first meeting got under way with an excellent field and with the over night rain gone it was a clear and sunny if not cold day. The course played very well and even though a little wet the scoring was once more very good. It is slightly embarrassing having been asked to partner Doug Pratt as his regular partner is down under on holiday we should play so well and eventually come out on top with 42 points. My fingers are now crossed for the 10th in the hope the weather will be kind to us for that gathering.
The weather was dry but very frosty which meant this event went ahead on temp greens, that said the scoring seemed to be far higher than the first event with the leading pair Brian Hansford and Bryan Howe from Came Down amassing a fantastic 46 points with only 19 being recorded on the front nine!
Both days were a huge success and I thank all members for there sterling support throughout the year. It just remains to say a huge thank your to the DG&CC for looking after us so well and providing us with a splendid Christmas lunch. To you all may I wish you and your families a very Happy Christmas and Peaceful New Year.
The order of merit was decided at the Weymouth meeting with Paul Sheppherd Dudsbury needing a good round to secure top spot, sadly he could only manage sixth place and 1 point to his total. Doug Pratt & John Gough Weymouth could not stop the OOM title once more going to John Farley from Dudsbury with Cliff Green and John Ruskin Crane Valley coming in joint second. It as been very well contested this year lets hope this continues.
In the worst conditions this year with heavy rain and strong blustery winds I take my hat off to all who attended and braved the weather to make the day, whats more the scoring proved to be good even in the rain, that said the late starters did finish off with the sun on their backs.
After some heavy rain days before the event it was great to arrive to a splendid course with the sun shining. It was a long day enjoyed by many members.
On a warm but cloudy day with a forecast of rain late afternoon the association members took on the Crane Valley main course which was in superb condition. The morning groups found the scoring easier than those later starters yet again with Doug Pratt and John Gough recording the highest score of the day on 43 points.
On a warm a sunny day saw the association members take on the excellent Old course at Yeovil which was in superb condition. The morning groups found the scoring easier than those later starters with two groups in the first half each finishing with 44 points, whilst the afternoon winners could just manage a good 40 points.
On a warm sunny day with a well presented golf course and greener than green greens! the third DCGA event got under way with again a some what subdued field of only 44 member golfers. The scoring was difficult for some but two pairs still maaged to hit 41points. We look forward to seeing more of you at the next venue Yeovil on Wednesday 23 Jul 08.
On the hottest day so far this year with a well presented golf course the second DCGA event got under way with a some what subdued field of 42 member golfers. The scoring again was high and our recently new pairing of Troy & Rob from Canford scored a magnificent 45 points, 5 clear of the field well done. We look forward to seeing more of you at the next venue Bridport & West Dorset on Wednesday 4 Jun 08.
On a fine sunny April morning the first DCGA event got under way with a tremendous field of 70 golfers, the scoring again was high and it is refreshing to see new members joining the Association long may it continue and my sincere thanks to you all for your support to these events which helps raise funds towards the Develpoment of our County Juniors.
