Matt Birch breaks Course Record
In the President's Day competition held on 24th July, Matt Birch broke the old course record which had stood since August 2013. Matt's card will be framed and displayed in the club house.
Many congratulations to Matt on this new record.
And, you thought you were a tough weather golfer. The notice below was posted adjusting rules at a golf club in Britain. You have to admit --- these guys really had to like the game to play!
German aircraft from Norway would fly on missions to attack northern England. Because of the icy weather conditions, the barrels of their guns had a small dab of wax in the muzzle to protect them from clogging with ice.
In addition to attacking industrial or other targets close to golf courses, as they crossed the coast, they would clear their guns by firing a few rounds at the golf courses. Golfers were urged to take cover.
This is purely wonderful -- and says more than anything else I have ever seen about why Hitler lost the Battle of Britain !
Congratulations to this year's Officers:
President, Hilary Brady, Captain, Rob Wagstaffe, Lady Captain, Jane Sloan, Vice Captain Lloyd Readhead, Lady Vice Captain Margaret Playfair.
