Our fortnightly Friday 9 Hole Stableford competition kicked off a packed competition weekend at Willow Valley. Zia Khan won the event with a steady return of 18 points in challenging conditions.
The weekly Saturday Stableford was a close battle in Division 1 with Dan Waddington narrowly edging George Branch out by a single point for first place with a return of 36. Division 2 was a much more clear cut affair with Scott Levick returning a fantastic total of 44 points for first place. Joe Smith was the runner up with a respectable 38 points.
On Sunday we had a very different format named the Sunday Six’s for our competition. A total of 18 teams participated and the format required the best stableford total for the first 6 holes, the best two scores for the second 6 holes and finally all three totals to count for the last 6 holes. The winning team of Michael Burnell, Darryl Wright and Michael Conboy returned a 5 under par score of 77 points.
Well done to everyone for braving the conditions over the past few days of golf!
Our weekly Saturday Stableford turned out to be a very well attended event this past weekend. Paul Blakeley was the best in division 1 with a steady return of 39 points. Runner up to Paul was past captain John Rhodes with 37 points. Paul Nugent had the score of the day in Division 2 with an excellent 42 points, comfortably pushing Stephen Carrington-Ward into second with 39 points.
Sunday brought another chance at silverware on presentation evening this year with Medal 5 taking place. Zia Khan won a very close battle in Division one where three players returned nett 69s and had to be seperated via countback; 11 handicapper Damon Sandison was the unlucky runner up. Division 2 was more clear cut with Richard Chamberlain scoring 84(16) for nett 68. Runner up to Richard was Gary Ellis with a 96(27) for a nett 69.
Our Juniors were also in action on the 9 hole Fountain Ridge course on Sunday. Order of Merit Event 4 went to 9 year old Alfie Dook with an excellent return nett 20.
This weekend was a great mix of serious competition and good fun! On Saturday, one of our Medal competitions took place. The strokeplay format is more difficult than the stableford format so it always turns out to be a tough test for the members. Dan Waddington had the score of the day in division 1 with an excellent gross 75 for a nett 67. Jeremy Bakes followed his win in the previous medal competition with a runner up finish scoring 79(8) for a 71. The second division proved to be a much closer affair with Danny Shuttleworth victorious scoring 68 after handicap deduction pushing Karl Larkin back into second place with a nett 70.
Sunday was more of a fun format with the members getting to play from most of the professional blue tees in a scramble format. Scoring always tend to be good in these competitions and Sunday proved to be no different. The team of Paul Jefferies, Karl Larkin, Darren Bakes and Chris Hill were the winners on 57.8. Neil Emery, Nigel Richardson, Carl Raymond and Stephen Carrington-Ward were the team to narrowly miss out by just 0.7 after returning 58.5. Well done to all the winners and thanks for continuing to support the club competitions.
