The Berkshire

Winner – David Hough and Duncan Bateman

Winner of The Austin Carris Bowls (John Gibb not present & Duncan Bateman)

Another glorious day for our visit to the Berkshire.  We also had  a wonderful attendance making a perfect day in the Hazards golfing world.

We started on the Red course for a stableford competition off the white tees. Such was the size of the field that we had a two tee start with half the field teeing off from the 12th.  Our morning results were

1st                    David Hough        36 points

2nd                  Jeremy McIlroy   33 points

Best nine        Alistair Defriez     19 points

Following lunch the field ventured forth to the Blue course off the yellow tees for our trophy competion of the day – The Austin Carris Bowls.

1st                    Richard Blanchflower & John Gill        38 points

2nd                  Tim Cracklen & Andy Pollock                36 points

Best nine        Stephen Moore & Justin Towlson (g)   22 points

All were in agreement that the course was in wonderful condition considering the very hot weather that had been in place for some weeks.  Lunch was the usual excellent fare although, as ever, we could have done with another twenty minutes or so.
