In similar style to last year, Sunday morning of the Viscountess Mixed Foursomes competition dawned not bright and breezy but grey and drizzly. Fortunately the worst of the weather stayed inland and playing conditions were bearable for the players entered in this popular fixture.

A few ladies were absent this year due to a clash with another competition and ultimate winner of this year’s competition Rod Frost, chose to replace wife Sue with another Sue (Willmott). Perhaps he was worried that he would forget his partners name if it was different? The new Sue proved to be an excellent replacement and wife Sue may have to earn her stripes to get back in next year!

It seems that 31 points is the required score to win this competition on the Church course, with all three places last year sharing that score and the top two places doing so this year. Rod Frost and Sue Willmott were the worthy winners with 31 points, closely followed by Sue Ofield and Dave Oldham also on 31 points after count-back. In third were last year’s winners Ruth East and Simon Marquis with 30 points, no doubt a missed putt somewhere along the line left them a point short!

The Holywell competitors in the prizes this year were Rex Molloy and Sue Floyd Jones winning with 38 points and John and Mary Bower in second place with 35 points.

Captain Tony Mindel congratulated all the winners and thanked everyone for participating. He also mentioned that the next Dallas Scramble and Barbeque social evening will be on Friday 22nd September and a sign-up sheet is on the board in the lower bar.
