* yeah Kevmc. 

Great day and a pleasure to play with Kirsty and Mrs DCB. I did my best to make my playing partners look good with a strange spate of shanks...  Weird.

My magical 3wood also struggled as if I had some sort of zombie curse... 

Anyway cap off to Hursty for driving so far. Broom broom not boom boom.

A cracking day at the Merchants, with the weather being kind. The greens were soft following yesterday's downpour, but the wind made sure we had a decent test.

For anyone not familiar with the course, Merchants is relatively short but very hilly course with a number of blind shots, so accuracy & a good short game are key.

As ever with forum events it is the people that make them so enjoyable. My thanks to my playing partners for their company & most of the banter! Delighted to finally play with DCB at Merchants. Kudos & respect to Hursty for travelling so far to join us. Great to catch up with old friends & introduce a couple new ones. 

Group 1: Mrs DCB, Hursty (aka Kirsty), Scott & Zombie 
Group 2: Adam, DCB, Kevmc & MvW

Scores stableford:
MvW         - 40
Mrs DCB  - 35
Adam       - 33
Scott        - 32
Kevmc     - 32
Hursty      - 30
Zombie    - 28

Scoring suggests that familiarity with the course was a bit of an advantage - sorry guys you caught me on a good day! I can confirm that no glass based buildings were harmed. ;-D

DCB not included in the above as he was not playing the full 18 holes. He did provide highlight in our group, arms aloft after draining a long putt for his par on the 9th, his final hole. 

Thanks again to the DCB's for organising today. Roll on the next meet.

Excellent stuff, always good to see the Mizuno family coming up trumps again. From my side, it's great to see a mixed group of players out enjoying the game, not enough of that. Maybe a game at Muirfield next eh Zombie? :lol: Looking forward to seeing everyone sometime hopefully in the near future :)

Get saving your Norfolk dollars Bonobobananas, Muirfield is £190 a round! 

Back to my shanks, I can confirm that this was temporary. Me, my 8i and my cat practiced in the back garden and every shot went straight. Phew.

Gailes might be a more viable option, although we got a deal to play muirfield for about £60 in April so could always arrange an early warm up

That's what makes this place different. We may not have seen each other for a few months, but, when we meet up,  it's as if it was just the other day we last met. As for the mixed group, yes, great to be able to show that we all love our golf and all try to play the game to the best standard we can. Just the way it should be.

Finally made it back after the small trek back down.

Big thanks to David & Christine for putting me up (or putting up with me, you decide) and to all those that made it.

Was good to see some old faces and meet some new ones although thanks to Scott it's going to be hard to get rid of the Kirsty name!

Christine was the star of our group with 35 which included driving a par 4 green to then protect her handicap by 3 putting.

Zombies Tom Hanks were my doing, I hid the Zombie Hex Hip flask in his bag to get my revenge!

What hasn't been fully mentioned so far is that MVW brought in a ringer into his group, some guy called Adam Scott!

What has been mentioned though is the workout your legs get, the course is a great test of body and mind with some cracking short long holes and long short holes alike.

Until next time,

Hursty.
