Luck was with the 16 ladies and 16 men from Toft Golf Club whose fingers were well and truly crossed that a break in the relentless rainy days which had forced the course to be closed would allow the second Texas Scramble of the year to take place.

The sun shone, the course was re-opened albeit with holes 13-17 remaining out of play, and the 8 teams of 4 players set out to do battle.

Scoring was incredibly close with all players revelling in the fortunate sunshine.

The team of Cathy Lee, Lisa Gauci, Mick Marriott and Jim McLuckie posted a winning score of 42.6. Maureen Paulson, Mary Stark, Ian Henderson and Adrian Childs came in on 43 just a nose ahead of Viv Stanton, Karen Parsonage, Drew Farrell and Richard Robinson on 43.2.

Golf club vice captain Phil Sendall presented the prizes.

On Tuesday 28 Pairs competed in the Greensomes/Stableford Competition.

All 18 holes were open for the first time this month.

First were Paul Nicholson & John Larkinson on 48 points, 2nd Ray Bills & John Davenport with 43 on countback and 3rd were David Thomas & Bill Collins on 43 .
