Despite miz weather Calamari golf has good start

The first day of of the Calamari Classic Golf tournament at St Francis Bay Golf Club yesterday started off in wet rainy weather with a fierce wind that howled and raged all day.  Early golfers were welcomed onto the course with tots of Olde Brown Sherry to give them courage.
But as the morning wore on the bad weather deterred some players who gave their day’s game up and went home. There were also two teams (fourballs) who did not pitch.
Some players recounted at prize giving that they felt like they would be blown into the sea and it was so difficult if not impossible at times to find their balls as they went awol.

The lovely prizes which included several fantastic Russell Hobbs appliances for the kitchen, was Barloworld.
