WATERFORD VALLEY - Monday 7 November
Our last game for 2022 was played at Waterford Valley golf course in Knoxfield. 88 entries were received with 6 cancellations, some occurring immediately before the game. 82 players enjoyed the sunshine, although the course still had wet areas from the huge amount of rain which fell in October. Unfortunately, Waterford Valley has no score recording facilities; therefore, all handicaps and scores needed to be worked out manually on the day. Thanks to Jenny Ward and Geraldine Biggs for their time and expertise in helping with this task.
Our life member Bev Mannix and long-time members Jan Robertson and Pamela Yardney joined us for lunch at our Annual General meeting.
After all the lucky number prizes were presented, our Silver Salver was presented to Anne Briner and Debra Powell who were the winners on the day - their names will be engraved on the trophy.
