Unfortunate withdrawals due to Dentist, Holidays and Cruises left the turnout for the Gordon Abba Trophy less than ideal. 11 members made up the numbers for the Trophy donated by Gordon, who unfortunately (for us) returned to the U.K.
The competition was played on a Medalford basis with the Stableford score on the back nine holes being deducted from the Net Medal score from the front nine holes. Despite my scoring a total of 4 birdies, the consistency of Alan Janes, who scored 12 pars and 6 bogies, was sufficient to win on count back.
Nearest the pins – Hole 1, Graham Blakeway – Hole 4, John Burke.
3rd Place, Graham Blakeway, Handicap 9 – 9 points.
2nd Place, David Swann, Handicap 10 – 8 points.
1st Place, Alan Janes, Handicap 7 – 8 points on C/B.
