In another wet and windy weekend at Willow Valley, most of the scoring in the Stableford competitions was low. The weekly Saturday roll up competition turned out to be especially tough with Steve Durkin winning division 1 with a respectable 36 points. Runner up on 33 points was Jon Sharp. Division 2 was a much closer affair with the result going down to a scorecard playoff in which Alan Pinder came out on top. The unlucky runner up was Chris Hill, both players had 37 points.
The September Stableford took place on Sunday with slightly better scoring than the previous day. Tim Brook returned a steady 37 points to win the first division with Dan Waddington finishing second with a return of 33 points. Division 2 seen the best scoring of the weekend and it was Mark Halstead who managed to win with an excellent 41 points. David Webster was unlucky to finish in second place after scoring 40 points.
The action for our members wasn’t just at home this weekend. Willow Valley members made up both pairings in the Union Foursomes Final played at Bradley Hall over 36 holes on Sunday. On the day it was the team of Chris Sweeney and Colin Buzzard who prevailed by a comfortable score of 8 & 6 over Adam Turner and Steve Wood. Congratulations to both teams for representing the club so well!
It turned out to be another tricky weekend on the golf course for our members. The conditions were tough both days and for the most part, the scoring reflected that. On Saturday we had a Medal competition which resulted in a father and son top 2! Ahsan Khan won Division 1 with a score of 77(5) 72 with his son Habib finishing runner up with an 86(13) 73. Division 2 had the standout score of the day by a long way and it came from Graham Ellis who scored 91(25) 66. Scott Levick was the distant runner up by 8 shots scoring 95(21) 74.
Sundays competition was a fun team event in the format of a Blue Tee Texas Scramble. Playing from most of the Professional tees is already a challenge, then add in a 20mph wind and scores surged! The days winners with a score of 61.4 were Dan Waddington, Jeremy Bakes, Shaun Helliwell and Pete Day. Also on Sunday, our Junior Order of Merit Event 8 took place on our 9 hole Fountain Ridge course with Harry Micklethwaite winning both Gross and Nett sections with an excellent scratch score of 38 in the wind and rain! Harry now leads the Scratch Silver Medal by 5 shots with just 2 events remaining.
In a testing weekend of weather, our members still managed to put together some fantastic scores!

Medal 11 took place on Sunday with challenging conditions greeting the players. The undoubted score of the weekend came in division 1 on Sunday with Richard Chamberlain scoring a 78(15) for nett 63. What made the score even more impressive was the standard scratch went up on the day, meaning the course was playing a full shot harder than usual.
