 Les Hargreaves Nassau Competition.


Twenty one Seniors stepped out to contest this Nassau competition. The conditions were bright but a little nippy and some good scores were recorded.

Mona Butler and Jane Connor played very well with Richard Stapleton getting nearest the pin on Les's 'favourite' 5th hole!

Les would have appreciated the fact that this  year the ladies were triumphant!

We are back to golf now and hopefully enjoying it, but.............

 

STAY SAFE!

 

 Safety tips when in the sun!

 

  1. Apply a UVA and UVB sunscreen (broad-spectrum) with an SPF of 15 or higher 30 minutes before going outdoors

  2. Use a golf-ball sized amount of sunscreen (one ounce) to cover your entire body.

  3. Re-apply every nine holes (every two hours! -- even on a cloudy or cool day.)

  4. Completely coat all exposed areas of your face, head and body, ears, neck, nose, shoulders, back of the hands and front/back of your arms and legs.

  5. Cover your lips with sun protective lip balm or sunscreen.

  6. Check expiration dates on your sunscreen to ensure effectiveness.

  7. Seek shade whenever possible, and cover yourself with a golf umbrella between holes.

  8. Wear a broad-brimmed hat (preferably with a back flap) instead of baseball caps to help protect your face, ears and neck.

  9. Protect your eyes with UV-protective sunglasses.

  10. Wear sun protective clothing (tightly woven) including long pants and long-sleeved shirts as often as possible.

Who is this?

 

 



 

 

Have you heard this one ?

A man is walking through his local mall and notices a Mexican book store.

He decides to go in because he has never seen a Mexican book store before.

He browses through the store and finally asks the clerk,

"Do you have the book on Donald Trump's foreign policies with Mexico?"

The clerk replies, "F*ck you, get out, stay out!"

The man replies, "Yeah, that's the one!"

 



 

 

 

Who said?

Golf is a game whose aim is to put a very small ball into an even smaller hole with instruments singularly ill-adapted to the purpose.

 

Was it:

 

a) Lewis Carroll

b)  Winston Churchill or

c) Woodrow Wilson?

Did I?

Play Golf or just spoil another walk?

 

Image result for puzzled golfer

As you walk off the course next time ask yourself the following questions:

Did I enjoy myself?

Have I signed my card?

Did I replace my divots and repair my pitch marks?

You should answer YES to them all!
