Winter Mixed 10-holeTexas Scramble - October event

texas flagThe annual winter series of Mixed Texas Scrambles got off to an excellent start yesterday, Tuesday 30th October, when eighteen members took to the course.  We had an even split of Ladies and Gents.  Teams were constructed to try and balance the total handicaps, although the logic failed a bit with one team who had a handicap1.3 higher than anyone else. We'll tweak the algorithm next month!.  It really was a Winter event as it was cold and foggy when we started 

Fortunately, the fog lifted as the first drives were played and the temperature increased a bit.  After the play, everyone gathered in the Clubhouse to congratulate the prizewinners.

The results were as shown below:

Team Members




Joan McLaren, Colin Gibson, Duncan Shiell and David Squirrell




Mary Glendinning, Trish Kirkpatrick, Tam Glendinning & Dale Ploughman




Janice Cambridge, Angela Trueman and Alister Mackenzie




Cherry Thom, Janet Kyle and Albert Thompson




Joyce Michie, Jill Woolfenden, Eddie Berridge and George Thom




The Scramble is a monthly event running from October to March.  It is usually played on the last Tuesday of the month, so the next one takes place on Tuesday 27th November.  December is always different.This year the December round will be played on Tuesday 11th December.

Everone is welcome to play in the Scramble.  Please turn up about 9:15 as it takes a bit of time to sort out the teams before teeing off at 10:00am.  Don't worry about your handicap.  This is a bit of fun that gets people out onto the course whatever their handicaps.

Thanks to Joyce Michie and Albert Thompson for the photographs below>  There doesn't seem to a photograph of the winners available.
