This was the first time that the new Solstice Scramble competition had been held, having been cancelled back in June 2023, due to the weather.  The Scramble took place on the 18th of June 2024 and was a four-person team event with a single score to count for every hole.

The earlier tee times had slightly better weather with the temperature on the cool side for this time of year.  This prestigious competition was contested by 18 four-person teams.

A big thank you is extended to the ground staff for their effort in preparing and keeping the course in great condition.

The attached photo shows 3 of the winning team with a nett score of 52.1, namely from left to right, Michael Burrows, Ray Cole and Geoff Forrester.  Unfortunately, the fourth member of the team Jeff Rushton had to leave before the photo was taken.

In 2nd place were Steve Levett, Robert Milne, Mark Palmer and Graham Solomon with a nett score of 52.9.

A specific mention has to be made of the tussle for 3rd place.  This had to be decided based on count back which went to the wire of the 9th hole scores.  Chris McHale, Gabriel Ozique, John Sidaway and Geoff Woodhouse taking 3rd place with a 9th-hole score of 4 against Steve Allerston, James Lowe, Paul Sherborne and Terry Whitehouse scoring 5 on their 9th hole.
