5 Clubs & Curry Wed 26th Jan 2022


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.

28 Venerables set out for the annual 4 clubs and a putter competition. Although dry and sunny, a strong, cold wind made scoring somewhat difficult. In spite of the weather, an enjoyable day's golf.

Our thanks to Bernard and Dave Watts for organising, to Dave Sephton for the photo's and Richard for officiating. The 28 players were joined by another 3 Ven's for lunch, and as always, our thanks also to Mrs A for the excellent curry.

Three teams were competing for 2nd and 3rd place with 71 stableford points, the team that just missed out on count back were messrs Woods, Starr, Board and Williams (M), and those taking home the prizes shown below.
