On a cool and mostly cloudy early Fall day (with a little hail thrown in for variety) 30 hardy hickory hackers played our final scramble at Merry Hill Golf Club, near Kitchener. Designed and built by member Tony Matlock, Merry Hill is a most interesting par 62 course composed of well designed and challenging par 3 and par 4 holes.

The course was in excellent condition and enjoyed by everyone. After all the strokes were counted we had seven of the eight teams separated by four shots. Congratulations to all the competitors on another good close competitive result.
