4 Clubs & Curry Friday 6th October 2023
An extremely cold day saw 21 participants set off with their chosen 4 golf clubs and putter to compete in our annual 5 clubs challenge.
Despite the challenging conditions and frozen greens some very respectable scores were recorded, but most players were content to get back to the club house and thaw out.
Apres golf we were treated to one of Mrs. A`s curries and Ed`s fish and chips, after which every one departed looking forward to our next event in around three weeks time.
Our thanks to Steve King for organising the day, to Richard for officiating, to Andrew for the photos, to Dave Sephton for his website skills and to all those who braved the weather and supported the event.

On a bright, breezy but chilly day, a modest field of 21 set out for the annual 4 club challenge clutching their favorite 3 clubs and trusty putters. One brave Venerable (we shall call him 'Steve') set forth in his summer outfit and apparently may have found it a tad chilly round the Trossocks.
However, once the results were in it became clear that a few of our number don't actually need the other 10 clubs that they carry round each week. Future events may have to consist of one club and no putter!!!!
The day was topped off by an excellent curry, courtesy of Mrs A, and cod and chips from Ed
Thanks to Richard and Tony for organising and running the event, and to Andrew for the photo's.
