JOHN CARLTON GETS BIG AT SILKY OAK
Last week, one of our Green Jacket winners was Vero Morgan much to the chagrin of her long time partner John Carlton. Today at Silky Oak it was John who turned the tables on Vero to get his Green Jacket with an excellent 39 points.
52 golfers went to Silky Oak and after some gentle pleading, the starter gave us a staggered 2 tee start. Silky Oak has changed its layout over the past few years and it as to be said that it is a massive improvement to the old set up. The greens in particular were in excellent condition. Silky Oak is still a very challenging golf course and any score in the mid 30s is very acceptable.
There were flights for the competition with the split coming at 0-17 and 18+. The winner of Flight B was Frank McArdle with an excellent score of 37 points.
