Friday August 8 saw us back at Sandford Springs for the Dabchick ‘Big Day Out’. Once again we had to contend with the tricky golf course in magnificent condition and the mountain of excellent food provided by the catering staff.
We started with a Texas scramble over the nine holes of The Park won by Allen Brown, Paul Niblock and Dave Newham with a score of -2. After lunch, we headed out to play The Woods and The Lakes. It was a very close run thing between Allen Brown and Pete Keen, each returning and excellent 37 points both qualifying for finals day at Tidworth on 17 October. Allen just squeezed Pete out on countback. There were some notable scores in the thirties from both Dave Newham and Paul Niblock (obviously a good grouping in the morning!).
