Just as well as we couldn't afford the polish - KVG vs Glavon Golf Tournament
Jeanna Ind - Glavon GL receiving 'THE CUP' from Phil Horsley - KVG GL.
Well it was that time of year for our annual competition versus Glavon TR's, we tried and had not been successful at 10 pin bowling and skittles so we thought this year we'd try golf. So we mustered at The Golfing Hole Swindon which is an indoor 'crazy' golf centre, 14 Glavon and 20 KVG picked up their 'bats' and ball and attempted this frustrating up to date version of this traditional seaside game.
There were many holes where you had no clue how the ball went in one hole and came out the other hole located elsewhere, even playing in a darken room with luminus balls to add to the confusion, just like the much loved proper game it was about accuracy and speed and patience, very easy to understand how the professionals get so frustrated when they miss a simple shot.
The game took approximately 2 hours for all 34 people in 7 teams to complete the course, we then drove to the The Crown Broad Hinton, Wiltshire for a super carvery and a few bevies. It was then time to count up, which as you could imagine took some time with so many attending, after several counts, mis-counts, adjustments the final score was calculated, and yes you guessed it, Glavon won with an average of 58.57 versus 62.65, so it's back to the drawing board for KVG, maybe Tiddly Winks will work. Best score was young Alf (10) Glavon with a very commendable round of 48 and best endeavour was Linda Field (older than 10) KVG with a round of 82.
A thoroughly great inter-group with great comradery, of course we let them win as we can't afford the polish for such a large trophy!!!!!!
Watch out Glavon, NEXT YEAR!!!!!
