Competition news 

The ladies played a Firework Scramble on Thursday and there was a really good turnout. The format is like a normal Texas Scramble except the person's whose ball has been selected doesn't play the next shot and then comes back into play for the following shot. There was also a rule stipulating a minimum of three drives per player had to be used over the 14 hole competition. Sounds complicated but the ladies had no problem getting the hang of it. The winners with 50.7 (calculating the team's handicap is also complex so I'll save the explanation of that for another time!) were Corinne Veitch, Karen Stockton, Kathleen McNairney and Diana Hogben

Second place went to Clare Withey,Vanessa Veitch , Gail Sampson and Caroline Massey with 50.9 whilst third place was secured with a score of 54.0 by Pat Jefferies, Gwynneth Bramwell, Pam Dixon and Helen Allott.

Rules section 

With the onset of this harsher weather, winter rules came into play on Tuesday. That means the use of rocket launchers (aka smart mats) or mats from the fairway during competitions. During social golf, an additional option is to move the ball to the semi rough on the side closest to where the ball came to rest. It also means that a player may take a free drop for an embedded ball within the rough. Plus in an effort to prevent excess traffic around the hole, there is no need to tend the flag when a player is on the green but some distance away. Instead it can simply be left in and were the ball to strike the flag, there would be no penalty.


Club news

John Moss the club's secretary received a letter from the Wythenshawe Park Volunteers group the other day which might be of interest. The park's pitch & putt course has just been restored following the City Council withdrawing its funding several years ago. A lot of hard work by a growing number of volunteers means that it should be in a position to re-open next year. However they are short of golf clubs. So if you have any old medium or short irons and putters that you would like to gift then please leave them with me and I will see that Andrew Barry from the group receives them.

Both John and I think this is a great initiative and should be supported because anything that helps the game grow at grass roots level is a good thing.
