2009 Mark Golf Day
The fourth annual Mark Golf Day was held at Farrington Golf Club on Thursday 16th July. 40 Players from all over the Province and from our neighbouring Provinces of Bristol and Wiltshire, contested the individual stableford event.
The afternoon started fine but turned to rain before the first four ball had completed their round. Everyone got wet but the change of weather for the worse did not dampen anyones spirits! We all enjoyed a meal in the club house after the game, this was followed by the presentation of prizes by Richard Stone one of the organisers of the event. There were of course the usual loud comments about handicap cuts!
Last years defending champion John Allen was just pipped into second place this year by Tony Guthrie.
