Golf Croquet Handicap 2020

4 October 2020, Meadows

Because of torrential rain the previous day, as well as overnight rain, we decided to start play at 11.30 to give the lawns time to dry out. In fact the day was dry and sunny and the lawns were in excellent condition.

With eight players, with handicaps from 5 to 11, we played two blocks of four with a final between the winner of each block. We played 13-point games with a time limit of 45 minutes, 50 minutes if double-banked.

In block A Kathy won all three of her games with Brian a close second, while in block B Kenny won all three of his games with Josh not far behind him. There was some excellent play with five games going to the deciding hoop. In the final Kenny beat Kathy 7-2.   

Congratulations to Kenny Pollock and thanks to all the competitors for their help and support throughout the day.

It’s worth noting that the tournament took place under strict COVID-19 guidelines, which is why we are standing two metres apart in the photograph.
