President Jenny thank the female members for a the year and encourages any wmen who are keen on golf or would like to get back into playing after being away from the game to join them next season for some fun and great healthy exercise.
Controversy occurred at last Wednesday’s mid week foursomes championship over 12 holes, when organizer Richard Feuk declared himself and partner Kevin McCormick the inaugural champions after an exhaustive count back from Tim Quinlan & Trevor English.
To make matters worse, as the event was played over 12 and not 9 holes several teams used the incorrect hole ratings.
Quinlan & English argued that their combined age and humid weather should have been taken in to account when determining the result, however after a brief phone call to the High Court, the result was called null & void, owning to none of the players had renounced their loyalty to the “Old Dart” and the game will have to be replayed in a date to be fixed.
As usual tee off next Wednesday is from 9am, where legal representatives will be on call!
Most Tuesday’s up to a dozen Rochester members play at Rich River, last Tuesday Frank Severino was runner up and Des Gallagher won a nearest the pin.
