Outing to Merchants Golf Club - 25th August 2010

Robin Miller, Captain of Merchants this season and Society member, arranged for us to play at his course; he also arranged for first-class weather!

The course is very hilly, where local knowledge plays a big part, particularly at some of the par 3s, but our Secretary, Brian Graham, playing the course for the first-time ever, ignored this fact and triumphed by playing 3-under his national handicap and amassing 38 Stableford points. He finished 3 ahead of his nearest rival.

Our thanks go to Robin for organising an enjoyable evening for the 10 members able to take part
