Stragglers Vs Memdip, Match Result.
Stragglers captain loses two players! Search partys sent out!!
With Mendip golf club in the heart of a storm, the stragglers had the elements and Mendip to beat.
After four holes of driving rain the captains of both teams decided to reduce the matches to nine holes. This mesage was passed from group to group and so wet and weary golfers return to the club house after finishing the ninth. After a quick shower the golfers were greeted with mugs of hot carrot and coriander soup, which was very welcome indeed. As drinks were ordered and the food was being prepared in the kitchen it was noticed that one of the groups had not returned to the club house. After more drinks and the players getting hungery a search party was sent out to find the remaining group , who were discovered on the 13th hole. By the time they had returned and showered the other players had enjoyed roast beef with all the trimming, followed by treacle tart and custard.
The match result was a Draw wirth Mendip.
Thanks to all the players and lets hope the weather is more like summer for the next match.
