Lady Captain’s Day

Lady Captain’s day was extremely well supported with over 50 competitors taking part. The weather was glorious to begin with but golfers later in the afternoon got hit by a freak torrential downpour. The Senior’s 9 hole competition was held on the Friday, and the winner was Alan Holland with 19 points. On the Saturday Jennifer Cowley took the main trophy of the day being the Lady Captain’s Cup with 32 points from Runner up Jean Thompson with 27 points. George Bogucki took the mens section with a fantastic score of 45 points with President Richard Bloss finishing runner up on 39 points. Steve Williams was the best guest with 37 points. Cameron Meadows won the junior section with 36 points. The formal presentation was held at the Clubhouse in the evening and was a complete sell-out. Lady Captain Emma Lafferty presented the trophies and prizes. She thanked husband and Club Captain Dave Lafferty and their respective families, the catering and greens staff and everyone who took part for making this such a wonderful day.

President’s day was the best supported competition this year with 51 competitors taking part. The Senior’s 9 hole competition was held on the Friday, and the winner of the Seniors – President’s putter with 23 pts was Peter Cowley. On the Saturday Jason Bale won the President’s Cup with 39 points from Runner up Club stalwart Jim Crocombe with 37 points.

It was a great day all round with refreshments on the 10th tee. After the presentation a raffle was held which raised ¬£208 for the Club’s charity fund. Big thanks go to Richard and all those who helped to make this a super day.


Club Championships 2014

The Club Championship was played last weekend. This was a medal competition played over 2 days but with a limit on who played on Day 2. The players with the best 12 gross, the best 12 nett and any player within 10 shots of the best gross on Day 1 (Saturday) played on Day 2 (Sunday). At the end of Day 2 the players with the lowest gross and nett scores were to be crowned Club Champion and Nett Club Champion respectively.
After the first day Peter Johnson was winning the gross with 77, closely followed by Barry Torrence on 78, and Wayne Harold on 80. These 3 players formed the last 3 ball on Day 2. At the start of Day 2 Wayne scored an eagle (2) on Hole 1 (Par 4) whereas Peter scored a 6. Thus from being 3 down Wayne was 1 up over Peter after the 1st hole. The final score was Wayne 153 and Peter 154. Peter scored a 6 on the 36th hole and this cost him the Championship. Barry Edwards took 2nd place in the nett with a total score of 141. Well done, Wayne and Peter and thanks for a super exciting day.
