The 2014 edition of the Otter golf tournament was one of the closest and most memorable events of many a year. It had a classy field, packed with experience and nous (some of it even golf-related). In a tense event, the humble organiser, a certain Mr A. Craig managed to get around with minimal 3 putting. A couple of fluky holes, including a 3 at the (par 5) 7th hole, ensured an unassailable total of 28 points.
Peter Rae was the worthy runner-up and el Presidente, Mr Hindle, a distant third. Certain other esteemed members of the swimming fraternity didn’t really trouble the scorers, but we will leave them to stew in anonymity - this time around!
Once again, the post-golf lunch was a well-attended affair and a delicious spread was laid on by the Royal Wimbledon Golf Club (RWGC). Many thanks are owed, in particular to those who managed to navigate their way around one of London’s most picturesque (and occasionally tricky) courses and the RWGC for allowing a bunch of less than reputable aquatic mammals to roam freely on its hallowed greens.
