This weekends competitions once again seen a high number of excellent scores returned. The yellow tees, preferred lies and bunkers being out of play meant the course was there for the taking. Several players rose to the challenge, with the Saturday Stableford first division settled via countback by an incredible 44 point return from Richard Thornton. George Parkinson was the unlucky player losing out via best back nine score. The second division was also won with 44 points by Mark Filby. Richard Stocks finished in second place with 42 points.
The November Stableford on Sunday brought more of the same! Division one was settled via countback again, this time Ahsan Khan was the victor with 39 points. Paul Blakeley finished runner up. Division two had an incredible amount of scores in the 40s. In the end it was the 44 points of John Greenhalgh that came out on top, with Terry Dewing the closest challenger on 42 points.
Well done to everyone and thanks for participating!
This weeks Saturday Stableford seen both divisions settled by a single point. In the first division, George Parkinson scored 37 points which was good enough to push Michael Tyas and his 36 points into second place. The scoring was even better in the second division with Neil Collins very unlucky to miss out on the victory after returning a score of 41 points. Paul Jefferies was the man to beat him, with an excellent round of 42 points.
Sunday kicked off our 2016/17 Winter League. This year sees two leagues of 12. All teams play each other throughout the winter months with the top 2 teams in each league meeting in the semi finals next year. It is thought to be our biggest list of entries in at least 5 years so many thanks to everyone for supporting this.
Week 1 had plenty of interesting matches, with last years champions Adam Turner and Jon Shaw opening up their campaign with a hard fought victory. However, the standout result of the day was a 5&3 victory for Mark Budby and Mark Astin.
Next Saturday will be the usual Stableford competition, followed by a Texas Scramble on Sunday.
Last weekend marked the final two competitions of 2016 from the White tees! The yellow markers are now back in play for all competitions throughout the winter.
The course has been playing much longer in recent weeks with the weather conditions changing. However, Jon Rhodes certainly didn’t let that faze him, amassing an excellent total of 41 points to win the first division of the Saturday Stableford. Runner up to Jon was Ahsan Khan with a solid score of 37 points. In the second division, Stephen Carrington-Ward took the first prize scoring 39 points. Second place went to Joe House with 36 points.
Sunday brought the October Stableford and much more challenging conditions than the day before. Barry Adamson returned a total of 37 points to take the honours in the first division. Jon Shaw finished second to Barry with 35 points. In the second division, Jamie Coote took first place with 36 points, narrowly beating Vice Captain Michael Cassidy by a single point.
A big well done to all the prizewinners and thanks for continuing to support the competitions as you have done all year!
