Summer Series Event at Chorley GC 27/9/21

27 Sep 2021

Today's event was played at Chorley Golf Club. At 8.30am when I arrived at the club and saw hardly any cars on the car park, I feared the worst, it was absolutely sheeting down. Fortunately the Pro said the course was open, and looking at the forecast we could probably get it played.

The forecast was bang on and the rain stopped late morning and the day ended up really nice. Disappointingly we had a few no shows, probably because of the weather, so we ended up with a substantially reduced field, so sadly I have had to reduce the prize values a bit.

The course was in great condition considering the weather, and dried out quickly once the rain stopped, scoring was good, with a winning 45 points, well played to all the winners.

Just one thing, whoever it is that is scraping a cross on the putting surface to mark a nearest the pin, will you please stop it, it has happened more than once and will get us in trouble with the respective club's greenkeepers, there is no need for this at all.
