On the final day we assembled at the prestigious Ganton GC – host to the Ryder Cup, Walker Cup, Curtis Cup and many national and international championships – renowned for its fearsome bunkering and tricky greens. It did not disappoint.
The party managed to deposit over 140 balls in bunkers and 3 (or 4) putting was a regular occurrence! Nevertheless it was a privilege to play this wonderful course and enjoy the hospitality of the clubhouse for a snack lunch and prize giving afterwards.
Scoring reflected the difficulty of the course, with Paul Beever winning the Day 3, Sponsors Trophy on 32 pts, beating Tom Brown by 1 point. Although Steve Gowler was announced as the Guest Winner on 25 pts, a subsequent recount revealed that fellow guest Steve Murray had in fact scored 27 pts. Obviously a good day to be named Steve.
