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!

It turned out to be a father and son double victory with dad, Ahsan Khan scoring an excellent 43 points to win the first division and son, Habib Khan winning the second division with 38 points. Runner up to Ahsan was Jon Shaw with an also brilliant total of 40 points. Mark Astin finished behind Habib on countback, matching the total of 38 points.

Gary Whitworth finished in second place with a nett 71, pipping Karl Larkin via countback with the better inward half. Rounding out the top for was the nett 72 of Stephen Carrington-Ward.
