What a fantastic day was had by all who played. The weather could have been better but it could have been a whole lot worse.
So proud of our club, everyone and I mean everyone was singing our praises. Best greens, great food, lovely prizes, and run really well from start to finish.
Beverly Clarke won the ladies autumn meeting silver division with a wonderful nett 68, with Arja Rekiaro winning the scratch.
Lindy Evans played a solid round to win her division
Robin Cole won the Attfield Cup, beating Don Montgomery in the final. I am looking forward to presenting the trophy at the captain's dinner... Be scared, be very scared.

Here at Wimbledon Park, our greens are as fast as they've ever been, and we've had a number of golfers tell us they can't putt on them.

He's back! Or is he?
So, what did you make of Tiger Woods' announcement that he hopes to return to action in October?
The former world number one, now ranked outside the top 700, splits opinion, but it can surely only be a good thing that the 14-time Major winner is close to teeing it up competitively again after more than a year on the sidelines.
Of course, nothing is straightforward where Tiger is concerned, because at the time of writing the 40-year-old still isn't 100% certain he'll be in the field to play in the Safeway Open in California, starting on 13 October - it all just adds a little drama to the Tiger circus.
"It could be a fun fall," said Woods. "It was difficult missing tournaments that are important to me, but this time I was smart about my recovery and didn't rush it."
What we do know is that he will be at Hazeltine at the end of the month as a non-playing Ryder Cup vice-captain. We suspect once the dust has settled on events in Minnesota, Woods will let us in on a little more.
Maybe you're gearing up for your own return to action. If that's the case and your game is a little rusty, don't hesitate to speak to the team about some coaching.
