AmAm at Swaffham Golf Club on Monday 17th September 2018

Report from this year’s organiser, Match Vice Captain Sue Meadows:

The entry for this event exceeded all expectations.  Entries were received from 40 teams.  To use a two tee start for this event, we would only have been able to accept 22 teams, so in order not to disappoint everyone and with the co-operation of Swaffham Golf Club and after consultation with our President and Chairman, we decided to use one tee and make it possible for all 40 teams to participate.

Because of the huge entry, it was decided not to have a presentation on the day but winners would be notified by email and the results would be published on the website.

In aid of the Norfolk County Juniors, we ran a big raffle which was very favourably received.

The pace of play was very good and most teams were round in about four hours.

Thanks must be given to a very kind gentleman from Swaffham who acted as car park attendant and to Tony and Ann Ewer who were starters for the day.

Unfortunately, the only downfall of the day was for the end of field players whose food was not up to expectations.

Overall the day went well and everyone enjoyed the warm pleasant weather.
