Yesterday was the Toffs Christmas Bash, attended by 30 ish Toffs and guests, together with a dozen ladies for tea and scones.
The final event consisted of a choir of children from Longwick C of E School, who sang carols and Christmas songs to the delight of the remaining Toffs and the ladies.
We were blessed with a cold but bright, sunny morning which enabled us to play 18 holes, as the course was virtually clear of frost. On a few holes we played to temporary greens but this didn't spoil our enjoyment.
