Individual Stableford January 9th 2020



Thanks to  Mike Healey for supplying the results,

Only 13 holes open and no Buggies permitted.


The overnight rain turned the course into a quagmire once again, making play very difficult in places. It did remain dry during play so we can count our blessings. 39 Seniors persevered and the following players came through:

Division 1  -  First:            Alan Barnsdale         32 points

                   Second:       Malcolm Williams      28 points

                   Third:           Dave Palferman         27 points


Division 2  -  First:            Dave A Jones           31 points

                   Second:       Keith Hawthorn         30 points (Count back)

                   Third:           Damian Atkin            30 points (Count back)

Harold Hughes scored the only two of the day on the first hole - he might need to ring Securicor when he picks up his winnings!!

2nd Round Seniors Winter League Tuesday January 7th 2020

Thank you to Mike Healey for submitting the following report:-

38 Seniors took part today, in our second round of the Senior's Winter League. This round was originally cancelled in December but we will run through and the final results will be decided on five rounds only. The Ground staff were extremely busy working on holes 6 and 7 and fairway cutting has been undertaken around the course after all the rain we have had. The greens were also in very reasonable condition for this time of year and more importantly, the weather was kind to all! The following results were recorded:

First -        Frank Rodenhurst            29 points                    10 League points

Second -   Chris Jacques                  27 points (C/Back)        9 League points

Third -       Peter Taylor                     27 points (C/Back)        8 League points

Fourth -    George Hughes                26 points (C/Back)         7 League points

Fifth -        Ernie Williams                26 points (C/Back)         6 League points

Sixth -       Alan Bottomley              26 points (C/Back)          5 League points

Seventh -   Ken Tieszen                  25 points (C/Back)          4 League points

Eighth -     Colin Brown                   25 points (C/Back)          3 League points

Ninth -       Tom McGrady                25 points (C/Back)          2 League points

Tenth -       Dave Palferman              25 points (C/Back)          1 League point

I will post the current up-to-date Senior's Winter League Table on Thursday January 9th. The following players recorded twos on the 1st Hole - Tom McGrady, Alan Barnsdale and Dave F Jones while these players recorded twos on the 12th Hole - Chris Jacques, Don Wraight and Frank Rodenhurst.
