Golf for the Thursday’s seniors golf, wound up on Aug 31 this year as the weather in past September’s has been rainy and cold.
The sun was out and the temps were about 10 c at tee off and climbed to 23 c by the time play was finished afer 18 holes.
12 players signed up for the day’s outing, the 4 lowest handicap golfers each picked two players names out of hat to form the teams.
The format for the day was “roll the dice” .each player is assigned a number from 1 to 3 and #4 was a roll over, # 5(happy face, take the best ball) #6 (sad Face, take the worst ball.) Each Player hits their Drive off the tee and then the Dice is rolled to see which drive would be used.
From that point on each player hit from the spot which was the best position on the fairway or green.
The team of Wayne Thomas, Ed Kennedy and Richard Lampi had the best luck with the dice and ended with a 74 on the day.
Ray Laquerre, Gary Ladouceur and Pete Barna followed with a score of 76, with one birdie on Hole #13.
Jean Lambert , Vern Herbert and Lance Beauregard, turned in a 77 with a birdie on #8.
