Seniors Pairs Open for Ladies and Gentleman - Thursday 29th July 2021
This senior’s competition is run annually and this year it was blessed by the sun gods, being held on a very sunny day in between days of otherwise heavy rain. A blustery wind and some tricky pin positions added spice to the proceedings and made for a suitably challenging day that was enjoyed by all that took part. Despite the rain of the previous days the course was in excellent condition and was highly praised by many of the 83 visitors who were among the 132 competitors on the day. A special thank you must go to Adam and his team for providing us with a course to be proud of.
The day was topped off by a superb meal. Tony’s home made steak pie was a massive hit and received many positive comments. The friendliness, efficiency and good humour of Melanie and the ladies running the drinks service, and of Dale serving the food, added greatly to the proceedings making sure that our guests were made to feel very welcome at Handsworth GC.
It was gratifying to see that many of this year’s visitors were returning visitors that had played in previous years. We hope that you enjoyed your day and that we will see you again at one of our future events.
