Spring Am-Am

Saturday 21st March 2020

It was the first official day of Spring during the week, so it was appropriate that the members took part in the aptly name ‘Spring Am-Am’ on Saturday 21st March 2020. In teams of four the members competed against each other playing off 9/10th of their individual official handicap, with the best two stableford scores to count on each hole. It was bright and dry, and although the low cloud kept the sun at bay, it did make a brief appearance from time to time. With an easterly strong breeze, it was still reasonably cold and a matter of getting well wrapped up against the difficult conditions. Scoring was not easy and the first places had to be decided by the count back procedure when two teams returned scores of 81 points. With a better back nine of 41 points the winners were Mark Finney, Alan Boxall, Tommy Leonard and Robert Turner. They all win vouchers to the value of £30. With a back nine of 40 points, in second place, were to the winners of a similar competition two weeks ago, Peter Calvert, Brian Bell, Dave Evison and Michael Pousette. They all win £20 vouchers. Two points further back in third place with 79 points, and winning vouchers to the value of £10 each, were Neil Ellis, Ian Scott, Jim Leahy and Stephen Woodhouse. There were only a couple of twos recorded throughout the whole day and they were both scored on the thirteenth hole, from Paul Coultas and Ian Lord. The both share the pool of £93.00. The members found the two hardest holes of the day, were the 11th and 17th holes both playing 5.43, 1.43 over par. The easiest hole was the stroke index 18, the 3rd hole playing averaging 4.30, only 0.30 over par.

St Patrick's Day Texas Scramble

Saturday 14th March 2020

It was a wet and miserable damp start for the early starters when a full field contested a 3-ball St Patricks Day Texas Scramble on Saturday 14th March 2020. By mid-morning however the persistent weak front had moved away giving way to some intermittent sunshine for the rest of the day and with only a slight breeze. Although cold, with the temperatures struggling to reach double figures, the conditions were ideal for golf and there were some excellent scores returned. The winners with a combined handicap of 5.1 were Ian Ritchie, Jim Drury and Trevor Chappell who returned a nett score of 57.4. The each win a voucher to the value of £40. In second place with a score of 59.2 and playing with a combined handicap of 4.8 were Gary Reynolds, Peter Gibbins and Mathew Conley. They each win a voucher to the value of £20. In third place and winning a £15 voucher each with a score of 60.7, with a playing handicap of 8.3, were three of last week’s Am-Am winning team, Brian Bell, Pete Calvert and Michael Pousette. All the teams that played in the competition were under par for the course. The nearest the pin competition on the 6th hole was won by John Ritchie and he scoops the pool with a £78 voucher.

St David's Day Am-Am

Saturday 7th March 2020

After a long miserable winter, one of the wettest in history, we can look forward to spring being just around the corner and the brave and beautiful daffodils are in flower. It was appropriate then that the members were pleased to return to playing some competitive golf with a St David’s Day Am-Am on Saturday 7th March 2020. The competition proved very popular and in teams of four a full field participated. The winners had to be decided by the count back procedure when two teams returned scores of 92 points. With a better back nine of 46 points, Dave Evison, Peter Calvert, Brian Bell and Michael Pousette ran out eventual winners and each win a voucher to the value of £25. Shane Portess, John Ritchie, Andy Pearce and Andrew Martin took second place, with the same score and all receive vouchers to the value of £20. One point further back in third place with 91 points, were Micky Paterson, Mark Woolliss, Allan Playford and Tommy Playford. They each win £15 vouchers. There were nine twos recorded all valued at £10 from Graham Poole, Ian Smith, Ian Lord, John Watson, Paul Denton, Ian Coutts, Gary Tuck and David Smith who was good enough to score a couple of them.
