It was another big weekend of competition at Willow Valley with our annual Invitation Day taking place on Saturday followed by our penultimate Major of the year on Sunday, The Stableford Trophy.
Invitation Day was as well supported as ever by our members and their guests who thoroughly enjoyed their day. The competition itself was very close until the team of Barry Adamson and Roger Tolson came in with a fantastic total of 45 points in the pairs stableford format to convincingly take first place. The pair were rewarded with Motocaddy golf bags for their efforts. P Jagger and L Sapwell were the runners up 4 points behind on 41 points and were happy to take home a pair of Under Armour shirts. Third place went to Aftab Ahmed and D Wilson just a point further back on 40.
Onto The Stableford Trophy on Sunday 12th and more fantastic scoring. Individual stableford was the format and the lowest handicapper in the field ended up on top at the end of the day. Ahsan Khan fired a fine score of 41 points, beating Dave Shaw into second place with 39 points. Dave beat both Janet Tedstone and Chris Sweeney via countback, finishing 3rd and 4th respectively.
After a glorious few months of sunshine, our members at Willow Valley had to deal with heavy rain while competing this weekend! Medal 8 was the competition on Saturday and we still had some very solid scoring considering the conditions. George Parkinson won Division 1 with a nett 69. Junior member, Habib Khan missed out by a single shot finishing with a nett 70. In Division 2, Phil Narey returned a score of nett 71 to win convincingly. Ryan Lee-Haigh finished a distant second with a nett 74.
Sunday brought the really testing conditions with steady rain all day. At least it was back to stableford format to make things slightly easier for the competitors. In Division 1, Richard Thornton scored 34 points which was good enough to take 1st place by 2 points from Scott Smith who returned 32 points. The scoring in Division 2 was much better with George Edmondson scoring 38 points in the challenging conditions. Runner up to George by a single point was Michael Hall on 37.
Medal 4 took place on Saturday 26th May with some fantastic scores returned. Division 1 had several of these good rounds, none more so than Ahsan Khan who scored 73(6) for a nett 67. Colin Buzzard was the unlucky runner up with an also excellent score of 76(8) for nett 68. Division 2 was also settled by a single shot with Jon Clerehugh scoring 91(20) for a nett 71. Karl Larkin was the runner up with 89(17) for 72.
Sunday brought a change in format with a fun Blue Tee Texas Scramble. It is one of the only times in the season that the members get to play off the professional tees on The Championship Course. The team of Karl Larkin, Alan Hudson, Scott Levick and Rick Price won on the day with a score of 59.9. The second placed team of Dan Waddington, Jeremy Bakes, Shaun Helliwell and Pete Day were just 0.7 behind on 60.6.
On Sunday we also hosted a major junior qualifying tournament on our Fountain Ridge course. Participants from as far afield as Dubai and The Mauritius competed along with juniors from all over England to try to qualify for the next phase of The Wee Wonders competition. 10 Year old Aaron Mohun from The Mauritius Gymkhana Club had the score of the day returning a gross 31.
