Winter Series Event at Wilpshire GC 22/11/21

22 Nov 2021

Today's event was played at Wilpshire Golf Club near Blackburn, the day started off frozen, with minus 2 degrees at the club. This meant unfortunately we had to play off some temporary greens, the head greenkeeper tried his best to get as many on the main greens as early as possible. Unfortunately the temporary greens had not been properly prepared and made putting interesting.

Saying that, we had some unbelievable scores, with a 105, 100 and two 99's sweeping the prizes, so they obviously didn't struggle. With this in mind, I think it is more fair for the lower handicappers, as we are on shortened courses over the winter, that we play off 75% or 3/4 from now on.

Here are the results from today:
