Toby wins again

It was the closing event for the Juniors this last weekend and it was closed in great fashion by Toby Yates shooting a brilliant 40 points off his then 8 handicap. It was a close call though as Roman Brindle and Junior Captain came in under par with 38 points. After the event, the juniors were also presented with the prizes from the Club Championships, Maxwell Trophy, and the Judge Kershaw Knock Out.

Bit of Balsam Bashing!

As we come into the winter period the hard work continues out on the course. The lads are doing a great job and are working flat out to keep the course up to the standards we are accustomed to. The main problem we are faced with this time of year is the leaves that are falling from the trees. You clear them and turn round and they are there again. Whilst the lads are concentrating on the playing surfaces Robin Dawson, the Greens Chairman, has been busy arranging a few work parties to help out. On Monday we have had a second Balsam Bashing party. There are pockets around the course of Himalayan Balsam which is a very invasive plant that sheds 800 seeds a year. Robin and his team are going on a mass cull to try and eradicate as much as possible. If you fancy helping out on the course watch out for the emails from the club about future work parties.

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.
