From our Special Correspondent, Sue Hall - Sancerre, 23rd
April -- The Sancerre Course, rather like Le Vaugouard, given a low slope by
FFG, caused grief to many players who found they were giving shots back to the
long and rough ridden holes of Sancerre. Drowning their sorrows in the excellent
local brew on Friday night in preparation for the big day on Saturday did little
to restore everybody's natural radar to find their balls.
The outing was blessed with excellent weather to which the many
red arms, noses and backs of necks and knees will testify. However, once again
there may be some argument as to whether the red faces was caused by the
sunshine or a glass too many. Hotel, restaurant and course staff all very
welcoming and everyone must have appreciated having their food waiting for them
as they happily flopped into a chair after a flat but gruelling course.
Hats off to Malcolm Forrest, who once again organised a super
Sancerre will stay on the list for a return visit.
for album, many thanks to Monica and Sue.
Winner - Ali Fahmy
Formula: 3 ball team stableford (1st 6 holes - best score to
count, 2nd 6 holes - 2 best scores to count, last 6 holes - all 3 scores to
Everybody found innovation quite ingenious even if they had
trouble understanding it on Saturday evening (the wine must have temporarily run
out) and all got plenty of golf (and frustration looking for more balls).
Taking into consideration above results, not surprising that
winning team was comprised of Ali Fahmy, Fraser Anderson & Rafik Tagher.
