The 5th annual S.L.M. Golf Day was attended by the largest group of golfers, forty in all, from some novices to some very experienced golfers. The sun shone for the whole day, without being too hot, ideal weather conditions for playing. Raul D’Oliveria, a first time player in the competition, although an experienced golfer, won the overall individual event, with
Andy Gutherie second. Christine Hamilton won the Ladies title for the fourth time, and it was good to see an increase in the number of ladies taking part.
The Texas Scramble event was won by Dave Huzzey, Dean Lifford, John McEwan and Bob Preece. The biggest winner was the S.L.M. with the profit from the event totalling £537.
Next year’s event is pencilled in for Friday 24th September 2010.
