Alas, a number of our regular golfers were unable to make this meeting, and a number who made it to the lunch were ‘hors de combat’ – we are all getting older, and leg, foot and back injuries reduced our players further! Additionally the ‘buggies’ which some injured players had been relying on were forbidden, as the previous day had been so wet, that is until the negotiating skills of Brian M came into force!
Eight of us enjoyed an excellent, and very sociable lunch in the clubhouse, to which we welcomed new member and new Gujan-Mestras resident – Danny A. Thus fortified, a select few of us ventured onto the golf course. Thankfully the threatened drizzle kept away until we were safely back in the bar (the 10th hole as we only played 9)! It may have been the liquid refreshment at lunch, but neither Phil nor Brian played their best golf, but we did avoid hitting balls into the beautiful, but somewhat intimidating lake.
We do wish our 4 injured golfers, including a past as well as our current President, a speedy recovery, and hope that we can return to full strength at the start of our 2015 season.
