Cloudy, max. 13C, showers with the chance of small hail was the forecast. Links conditions suiting a hickory golf day. 

As it turned out, the weather was mostly sunny with no showers at all – with the cool conditions allowing participants to don their best woollens.

Lunch was held in the Clubhouse after golf.
