There was a difficult start to the day for Felixstowe Seniors at Gosfield Lake and they weren’t even on the Golf Course! Most of the team were scattered along the A12 and A 120 due to a large articulated truck from one our European friends trying to negotiate a roundabout and a car at the same time.
However thanks to our members fantastic driving skills every one arrived just about in time for the 9.00 am start. It’s a shame some of them didn’t transfer their driving skills to the golf course.
The stressful journey and rushed start didn’t help the golf, but considering all of this the team put on a valiant effort away from home and only just lost by the narrowest of margins.
With the Captains of the Day from both clubs struggling for words at the after lunch speeches the ever dependable Immediate Past Captain of Felixstowe Alan Wells stole the show with another great yarn!
Many thanks to all who attended and to our hosts at Gosfield Lake Golf Club
