Write-up by Steve Lloyd
32 players arrived at Woodhall Spa for the annual November trip, we all met in the clubhouse for a superb breakfast whilst pairs for the Friday fourball-betterballs were drawn.

The Bracken course was in a great condition for the time of year and he weather was dry and relatively mild, albeit it mostly overcast. Nearest the pins were won by Gordon Galloway (5th), Peter Meaney (7th), Howard Holliday (11th) and Karl Hughes (16th). Nearest in two (a matter of inches away) was Adam Thompson and Kevin Morris took the longest drive.

£2 per head entry saw prizes for the top three pairs with Karl Hughes and Graham Thorpe in third on 39 points (£5 each). John Shaw and Keith Evans were three points ahead in second on 42 points (£10) and winning on 43 points, taking £15 each were John Haley and Rob Hallworth.

After a few drinks at the club and it was off to the hotel, The Inn at Woodhall Spa which seems to get better and better each time we stay. The rooms were fantastic and the food superb meaning everyone enjoyed their stay.

Saturday morning was bright, a little chillier than the day before but mild for November and crucially it was dry meaning we could enjoy the superb Hotchkin course in good conditions. As always on our visits to Woodhall Spa though, scoring wasn’t particularly good with the thick heather, cavernous bunkers and tricky greens taking their toll on the BUNGS contingent.

We normally say that 30 points around the Hotchkin can put you in the prizes and this proved to be so with Steve Harris finishing in fifth on 30 points (15 on each nine) off a handicap of 11. On the same tally but with a better back nine (17 back, 13 out) was Chris Dewes playing off a handicap of 4.

Chris blobbed the last which ultimately cost him third place which went to Kevin Morris, playing off 2, with 31 points scoring 14 on the front nine and 17 on the back nine. Two ahead and with a very steady performance was Karl Hughes playing off 7. Karl scored 15 on the front nine and 18 on the back for a 33 point total and second place.

Rob Hallworth was in fine form on the Bracken curse on Friday and he took that onto The Hotchkin on Saturday scoring 18 on the front nine and a superb 20 on the back nine for a 38 point total and his maiden BUNGS victory. Well played Rob.
