The 37th edition of the Spring Cup was held at Villarceaux on Saturday, May 13th where some 70+ players competed in typical Spring weather (some sun, some wind, some cloud but NO rain). The conditions seemed to favour the men who, overall, played better than the ladies.
The Castrol Cup (men’s gross) was won by Patrice Guiader with 27 points. The ladies’ gross cup – the Financial Times Spring Cup – was won by his wife, Karine who also scored 27 points.
The net Spring Cups were won by Véronique Guermonprez and Roland Leguené with 37 and 40 points respectively. Roland also won the Men's longest drive. Solena Person won the Ladies’ longest drive.
Due to a mix up at the secretariat the “Nearest the Pin” competition was a mixed event instead of the usual Men’s and Ladies’ individual event. This very first (and last) version of the event was won by Claude Jacques.
Standard Athletic Club players seemed to perform better in the lucky dip than on the golf course. This said, there were good performances from John McCallum (36 points) and Jeanne Delacroix (35 points). Emmanuel Vergé and Muriel Jones were also mentioned in dispatches.
Special thanks to Dee Dee Thiriet and Sharon Masterson who (wo)manned the refreshment stall all day on the 9th hole and to everyone who helped prepare the evening cocktail.
