Spring 2009 Results

On the 18th May 16 intrepid golfers from Milton Hill set out to do battle with the Magnolia Park golf course in Oxfordshire. The day typified English spring time; we saw cracking sunshine, howling gales, sideways rain, hail showers and finally a warm, still, quiet, indeed balmy, evening. An 8:30 am start with bacon sandwiches and strong coffee was followed by 9 holes in teams of four.
