David takes the new Plate Prize

Congratulations go to member David J Hughes on his win in the Presidents Plate final on Sunday. This is a new competition we introduced this year for competitors that entered the first round of the Presidents Prize but were unfortunately knocked out in the opening round. This competition gave them a second chance of glory. David grabbed the opportunity by the scruff of the neck and made his way all the way to the final to take on 18 handicapper Tom Smith. Tom has just become a dad for the first time but he gave it a good shot in difficult conditions and took the match all the way to the 1st extra hole. In the end, David was just too strong and birdied the 19th to take the match and the new title of Presidents Plate winner. Well done David.

Sisters combine for top 5 finish

Sisters combine for a top 5 finish!


This week, Grainne Pendlebury and Sarah Riding went off to play in the British Seniors Brenda King Foursomes. The two day event was played at a Brough Golf Club in Yorkshire. The event attracted 36 teams from all around the country. There were some top players in the field that included Penny Grice-Whittaker a former winner Womans British Open. The sisters held their own over the two rounds and put in a brilliant performance finishing in 5th place with a gross score of 163. Overall winners were 2 & 3 handicappers Betty Sworowski and Julie Wheeldon who came in with 156. To be just 7 shots off the winning score over 36 holes is a fantastic result! Well done ladies we are all proud of you!

Scotts at it again

Scott Scoular has continued his fine form this week and followed up his Andrew Duckworth win with yet another board prize. This one needed a little more work as it took an 18-hole playoff to split the top 4 of the Centenary Plates competition. On Sunday Scott took on and beat Sean Wooff, Tim and Ed Cooper. I believe it was close fought match to the end but Scott just edged it.

Although Tim and Ed missed out for the Centenary Plates they did have reason to celebrate as they were victorious in the Fer-rets Foursomes prize that they played in the day prior. They combined well in this alternate shot game that nearly didn’t hap-pen. I thought this competition was going to go the same way as last week’s Summer Medal 8 as we had heavy rain in the morn-ing. Fortunately it blew through and we could start play although we had a 30 min delay. This weekend sees the Summer Medal 8 replay. This is the final chance for golfers to qualify for the final and get the needed points for the Barlow Andrews Order of Merit.
