Friday 5th March saw the OB Golf Society enter a team in the Edward Harris Cup at Souterndown Golf Club. For the first time all participating Societies were restricted to entering only the one team.
Ironically the number of Societies taking part was more than halved from last year’s record 10 Societies and the total number of teams was reduced from 14 to 5.
A grey and threatening sky greeted the Old Breconians arrival but the bacon rolls and coffee were welcome fortification against what it seemed Mother Nature could be brewing. Thankfully, the rain held off for most of the day, although the last two pairings did regrettably get wet towards the end.
Tom Atkin, Alan Hughes, Tim Hawkes, Charles Raw-Rees, Gareth Davies, Robert Calcaterra, Steve Falck, Kevin Noble – made creditable contributions to the team effort – results were:
So near and yet so far – only 5 points between the Old Breconians and victory. Missed putts were to blame in the end.
A great day was had by all despite depleted numbers; capped by a welcome, tasty and equally jolly dinner. Next year’s competition will be organised by Ruthin.
