This weekend saw our first end of season trip to Carden Park. What a fantastic couple of days, the Cheshire and the Nicklaus courses were both great, as too was the weather, for the end of October we did great, with only one shower (typically while I was playing !!)
The hotel was superb too, the rooms were great, and the food at night was good too, the portions for growing lads could have been a bit bigger, but very tasty. You had to have deep pockets to get tipsy, as the prices were a little steep, but expected in those sort of resorts. The lads from Crompton and Royton must be well off, they were a little worse for wear Monday morning.
We ran three competitions, the two individual rounds and the main 36 hole competition, there was some really good golf played showing in the scores, here are the prize winners and spot prizes.

Thanks to everyone who played on the Tour in the Summer of 2018, it was a great season with only one wet Monday.
Thanks too to everyone who came on the trip, it was a fantastic couple of days, and if you didn't come, I would strongly recommend it for next year.
And a final thank you to all those who stayed behind for the presentation, I was a little disappointed that people didn't stay, knowing they had prizes to come, the traffic wasn't that bad going home .
