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.
We have had a fantastic weekend of competition golf at Willow Valley in the sunshine. Both competitions were very well supported by the members who are glad the long winter is behind them!
Division 1 of the Saturday Stableford was won by Shaun Helliwell. His return of 38 points was 2 clear of the runner up, Janet Tedstone. In Division 2, Richard Stocks scored a fantastic 43 points to convincingly take first place. Ryan Lee-Haigh was the runner up with an also impressive 40 Points.
Sunday brought the May Stableford. Both divisions were incredibly close with up and coming junior member Habib Khan managing to win Division 1 with a steady 36 points. George Branch was the unlucky runner up on 35. Division 2 was even closer, with a 3 way tie on 37 points. A scorecard playoff decided that Chris Hill was the winner and Mark Halstead runner up.
Next weekend will be a Medal competition on Saturday followed by a Blue Tee Texas Scramble on Sunday.
‘Real’ golf returned to Willow Valley over the weekend with our first qualifying competitions of the year. Preferred lies had previously been in play since October so it was always going to be a challenge for the participants. Our Saturday Stableford was convincingly won by Linda Burnley in Division 1. Linda scored 42 points meaning the nearest challenger was Richard Irons who returned 37 Points as the runner up. In Division 2, Ryan Lee-Haigh won his first competition with a score of 37 points. George Edmondson was the runner up on 35 Points.
Sunday brought our first major of the year, The Williams Trophy. The turnout was fantastic and it seems the beautiful weather really added to the day. Dean Barker was the winner on the day with a solid return of 40 Points. Matt Owen was extremely unlucky to be pushed into second place via countback. Richard Thornton and Scott Levick finished 3rd and 4th respectively to round out the prizewinners on 39 Points.
