March Meadows’ Senior Men

Tuesday, September 6, saw the March Meadows’ Senior Men host the inter-club meeting with the gents from Salt Spring Island.

The inter-club captain for March Meadows, Frank Magrin, said that there were some great match play rounds.

When asked the results of the competition he said, “We all had a really good time.” He wouldn’t comment further.

Those who were not involved in the inter-club also had a good time.

The KP (closest to the pin) on the first hole went to Dale O’Connell.  Due to a mix-up on number seven it was unclear who had the KP, so no ball was awarded.

Earl La Forge and Rick Nott scored a birdie each and Jug Kalar sank two.

Ray Bourassa had a chip-in birdie.

Brian Crosson and Jerry Janzen made par with chip-ins.  Jerry also had a sandy par; as did Daryl Proulx.

Earl La Forge, for the tenth time this year, had the low gross. John Leach had the low net.

The barrel had the day off.

The trouble that most of us find with the modern matched sets of clubs is that they don’t really seem to know any more about the game than the old ones did. ~Robert Browning, A History of Golf
