On arrival at Elderslie GC this morning you couldn’t see the end of the first tee due to dense fog. We decided to wait 30 mins but decided it was too dangerous to go onto the course as the players would not be able to see who was in front of them or where even the holes were shaped.
Fortunately Renfrewshire GC contacted Paisley GC as it was higher up and the majority of the holes were in sunshine. So rather than postpone the match we agreed to play there.
To accommodate Paisley GC we split into two groups, starting at both the 1st and 10th tees, playing in 4 balls, but as singles matches to allow Paisley their course back as soon as possible.
After the 2 previous matches where we were unbeaten, all be it both at home, the challenge was now to see how we could perform away from home.
I struggled to get a full team this week and had to bring in 2 ROOKIES, at the last minute. Who said rookies couldn’t win anything, well we had 2, Ross & Chris both won their games and along with David, Richard and as usual Steven and Andy’s half match, we beat the 11 times previous league winners 5.5 – 2.5
A great result, so now on to next week’s game against Stirlingshire at Falkirk Carmuirs.
LIVING THE DREAM.
