Well we arrived at Rushmere in torrential rain and sat drinking coffee whilst it poured down, watching the 9th green develop more and more puddles.  Weather Apps were consulted and the radar showed there was a chance that the rain would stop before not too long so we agreed we would wait and see.  It was the right decision as the certainly did stop and we were able to set out not too long after our original start time.

As always the match with the Vets is keenly contested in a very friendly atmosphere.  The course had held up from the rain and many thanks to the green staff who squeegeed the greens for us and they proved to be fast and true.  Unfortunately we came a gallant second but the matches were close, coming down to a long putt holed here and there to win a hole.  Well done to the team, some of whom had to give quite a few shots to an ‘in form’ Vets team.  This is always a fun fixture and today did not disappoint.

Thank you to Rushmere for hosting us admirably – a great day!
