The 3rd FUN GOLF event took place on Tuesday 1st December with 9 Teams of 3 taking part in a Pink Ball competition. Again this format was new to most of the members with the Stableford score for the player holding the PINK BALL and the best score of the other 2 team members being taken to determine the score on that hole.
After heavy over night rain the course was again playing its full length with very little roll on the ball. Most people travelled to the course with windscreen wipers operating but miraculously the rain moved on allowing everyone to get round without the need for umbrellas.
