A foggy start at the Bothwell Bash’n’Dash

The 2017 Bash’n’Dash was held in the last days of Autumn, with a high quality field headed to the oldest golf course in the Southern Hemisphere – Ratho, at Bothwell.

A stellar line up of the Golfing World’s brightest stars nominated to contest the year’s 2nd Major.

Who would prevail on this largely unknown layout – the oldest in the Southern Hemisphere? Find out more, with the Treasurer’s Report below……………….

Ian, Keithy, Dr Gaz, Matt and Mr Sexy all missed – absent either due to being buried under children; bushwalking and marathon running; or too busy chasing hotties and great waves.

Could the Bougle Master, Leroy go back-to-back and claim his 4th Bougle from 7 starts? Would Cravo make amends for his massive choke last year? Would Felix just make everyone else look silly with an easy cakewalk victory? Bas would finish 1st or 2nd (never any worse than that), but would it be winner or runner-up?
