Rain held off
A GREY day met the Pego Golf Society members as they arrived at Oliva Nova Golf for their captain Derek Lindley’s Drive-In.
Some had not seen each other or played golf since their last game on January 5 just as strict lockdown was decreed for Oliva owing to rising Covid-19 figures.
The golfers had been praying for a change in the weather as there was a 100 per cent risk of rain but none fell that day.
The present Covid-19 rules and restrictions meant no ‘Nearest the pin,’ no ‘Twos’ awards and no prizegiving in the clubhouse, which is closed at present.
Brendan Young guessed the Drive-In distance of 185 yards correctly and Ian Robertson, Peter Cornes, Paul Trigwell and Dave O’Conner took first place with 79 points.
Roy Jones, Jan Jones, Mick Farmer and C Ghost came second with 77 points and Charlie Miller, Fiona Sankey, Celia Cronin and Colin Foster were third with 76.
Next week the Pego Golf Society will be playing a combined pairs competition and those wishing to play should contact penelopebarden@gmail.com
Pego Golf Society meet every Tuesday at Oliva Nova golf club, and  anybody who would like more information should email Penny Barden at pegohandicapsec@gmail.com.
