Par For The Course written by Peter Gordon
Published by Josef Weinberger Plays
From the publishers:
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, things go from bad to worse. Set on the clubhouse patio, the characters soon discover that personal relationships OFF the course are more dangerous than the hazards ON it – love or loathe golf, it will never seem quite the same again!
