St. Enodoc Golf Club - Seniors Away Match At Bowood

Seniors Away Match At Bowood

Yet again, the lack of sand dunes and sea views confused the Old Saints as they floundered amongst the flora and fauna of Bowood Park. The winning home form failed to make it up the A39 and they succumbed to a 6-2 defeat. Captain of the Day, Des Kelly, must have known something would be amiss (mainly the putts), because he was last seen heading south down Mexico way……or beyond. In an unconvincing attempt to find some kind of tame excuse, stand-in Captain Andy (drive for show, everything else for no) Farrant produced an abacus to calculate that the Old Saints had to concede more than 70 shots to the opposition. Nevertheless the sun shone, the rain stayed away and a delightful Spring day was enjoyed by all, especially the home team!
