Bonus Ball competition at home and Hawarden Match away March 19th 2019



Thanks to Steve Monk for providing the bonus ball results and to Bob Brown for the 2s results. Don Wraight Seniors Captain provided the match result.

With 16 seniors playing an away match at Hawarden today, a further 39 turned up at Clays to play a Bonus Ball competition. 13 teams of 3 played in very good conditions for golf. Whilst the 2nd hole was closed, and the 1st, 11th and 16th holes were shortened, the remainder of the course had survived the wet conditions the day before and provided a competitive competition. Results were:

1st - Peter Taylor, Ian Ketland and Dave A Jones with a score of 142 points.

2nd - Mike Healey, Bob Brown and Mick Carnell with 137 points.

3rd - Reg Peacock, Nigel Harris and Roy Jordan with 133 points.

Mike Healey and Bob Brown also kindly organised a 2's competition, the winners being Mike Parks on the 12th and Dilly Jones on the 5th

In the match vs Hawarden Clays lost 5 1/2 to 2 1/2

Nearly St Davids Day competition February 28th 2019


We had a great  turn out of 61 Seniors for this very popular annual event. The event is sponsored by Roy Jones a past Seniors Captain. It was such a shame that the day was somewhat spoiled by heavy rain for most of the event. It started raining after about 3 holes and never stopped. Afterwards the weather went very murky!!

Thanks must go to the Seniors Committee for organising the day and in particular to Steve Monk for sorting the scores out whilst he ate his lunch! Hayley provided soup and excellent sandwiches after everyone came in.

Results:

  1. Dilly Jones with a superb score of 43 points
  2. Damian Atkin 40 points
  3. Mike Kalka 40 points
  4. Michael McHugh 39 points
  5. Mike Drake 38 points
  6. Keith Hawthorn 38 points
  7. Mike Healy 37 points
  8. Derek Jones 37 points
