As usual we had a great game of golf. The weather was cloudy but was warm with no wind or rain! Just perfect for a game of golf.
The ladies from Sedbergh were a delight, they were great fun to be with around the course.
After our game we had a lovely tea of sandwiches, salad, and scones with jam and cream and most essential, lots of hot tea and coffee!
Also we had lots of laughter and chatter which was a perfect ending to our last Friendly of the year.
We look forward to our exchange Friendlies in 2012.
