The Gents Invitation Silloth started on a bright and dry morning, however, due to a torrential downpour play had to be suspended for half an hour to allow the greens to soak up the rain.

Play resumed and the weather changed to sunny and breezy conditions which allowed play to be completed.

Thanks to all the players who were on the course during the suspension for their understanding and well done to all the players on what was a very successful day on a course which was, as usual, in excellent condition thanks to our greenkeeping staff.

Many thanks to Iain Seath for all his work today which not only included registering players, recording scores and finalising the result but in monitoring the weather and course conditions to ensure everyone was safe.

Thanks also to the Catering team and bar staff for the provision of the barbecue and bar, the starters and David and Ailsa for their work leading up to today.
