COOMBE HILL 2014
Our team this year was composed of our captain Barry Ritchie, John Eakin, our handicap secretary, Simon Cookson and myself plus our guides. This year, luckily, the weather was absolutely perfect although a little hotter than we expected. I noticed that the hills were a little steeper than last year and the holes much longer especially those up the hills.
We played well as a team particularly in the first nine holes although we tended to flag a little in the back nine. Nevertheless, we came in with a Stableford score of 100 only nine behind the winning team. John did particularly well and came third in the individual scores and received a beautiful glass vase that he can stand on his mantelpiece. I was extremely surprised to receive the William Levy Memorial trophy for what I found out later was for the highest score in the seniors. It also came with a beautiful large engraved wine glass which will be put to good use in the future.
We were treated to a magnificent meal at the dinner that followed and plied with never ending glasses of wine. After the presentation of the prizes Peter Levy came over to join us at our table asking about the progress of our club and thanking us for taking part. All in all, it had been a successful and great day’s golf.
