Autumn Open Meeting 2018

Date: 15th Sep 2018
Venue: Cooden GC
Result: Won by David Wells with 41 points

A select (but highly skilled) group of 7 OE golfers gathered for our 2018 Autumn Meeting at Cooden Beach GC under the command of Match Manager Andrew Langlands to whom many thanks are due. The majority of the course had weathered the dry summer better than many in the UK. Maybe those reed-filled ditches do have some beneficial effects.

After a more than adequate “full-English” breakfast we set off for a single round of Stableford in a fresh breeze but also glorious sunshine.

Tony Dunn off a 9 handicap put up a stout defence of his title with 36 points (nines of 12 and, yes, 24 points). Chris Morris (11 handicap) came second with 37 points but the clear winner was David Wells who off 17 returned 41 points. Chris Walker, David Dunn and Peter Jamieson also enjoyed the day.
