England Golf Midlands North 36 Hole Medal Foursomes was held at Glen Gorse Golf Club Wednesday 25th April 2018.
A strong field of 30 pairs set off before 9am and after a cloudy start, the morning round became rain affected but fortunately the pm forecast was wrong and we had a clear, if not breezy, afternoon.
Glen Gorse were terrific hosts and gave unlimited help and assistance, particularly Club Manager Andy Rudkin, Lady Captain jo and Lady Vice Elaine and their happy band of helpers. Our excellent referees Phil Askew and Graham Webb were on hand throughout the day. Players found conditions tricky on the greens and in the breeze but were very complimentary about the course and the hospitality provided by Glen Gorse.
