Par for the Course

Cast: 3 male, 3 female.
Set: Single exterior. Patio and putting green of golf course, present day.

Captain's Day at the Seven Lakes Golf Club gets off to a bad start when the men's Captain is indisposed. Club secretary, Simon, relishes the chance to take over but is soon thwarted by the arrival of Vice Captain, Nick and his girlfriend, Tiffany. Lady Captain, Fran, and enthusiastic but hopeless Barry add to the confusion as a series of disasters mount. With the unexpected arrival of Simon's wife, Laura, tensions build and things go from bad to worse.

Set on the club house patio, the characters soon discover that personal relationships OFF the course are more dangerous than the hazards ON the course!

Love or loathe golf, it will never seem quite the same again!

“… Gordon brings warmth, humanity and no little humour to his writing …” The Press, York.
