The Green Army on tour
Stage two of the tour was realised with a leisurely journey from The Premier Inn, with “The Anthem of the Seas” moored nearby, to the prestigious Stoneham Golf Club. We were joined by our generous hosts who provided an excellent and welcome breakfast, this rather nice touch has now become a tradition in this match. Stoneham is in the top 100 courses in England and much benefit is possible if previous play has been experienced. Unfortunately once again course maintenance had been carried out recently and the greens evidenced same. Remedial work currently underway, to the 17th hole, required us to play seventeen holes only. The weather, a significant improvement on the previous day, helped winners and losers enjoy a very stern test of golf.
This the Captain’s final hurrah spurred the Devon Boy’s to pull out all the stops, to provide Roger with a successful adieu. With toasts all around and thanks from the Captain, to all the Devon warriors, for a memorable year we were ready for the long journey home. Appropriately Peter Dunstan returned the thanks to Roger for all his efforts throughout his year, on behalf of the Green Army. As usual thanks to all the chaffeurs for their endurance and sobriety.
