IT MUST BE XMAS
Sunday 4 December and the Christmas spirit of the Members of Northbridge Golf Club was in fine form, the first of two extraordinary events at the Club showcasing just how far our members will go to have some fun. The annual Christmas Mixed now incorporating the Legends event final was supported by nearly 100 participants, organised by members Paul & Jill Appleby who always take the Xmas spirit to the limit. The creativity of some members was outstanding and with the heat on the day and leaving their cooler golf clothing at home there were some very hot bodies on the course. There was also some hot golf happening; in the winners circle for the event of the day was Karen Skelton & Sukja Lee both with 39 points, Karen beating Sukja on a countback, Peter Banbury won the scratch event with 32, NTP prizes were awarded on all par 3’s together with long drives and the “Hunt the Snowman” on 14 where two snowmen were painstakingly painted by our Course Super and players had to land inside to win the prize. Three women were the only ones to win the Snowman, but there were many other prizes given out on the day including the inevitable Trivia quiz which seems to coincide with any Apples event.
The Legends final had a dramatic finish with qualifiers from throughout the year competing for this prestigious Trophy, it came down to a countback and Ben Josika is the 2016 Legend taking it away from Penny Shearman as both had 38 points. This is Ben’s second consecutive win, congratulations.
