June 2021 Monthly Competition

Great weather for the June Monthly Comp.

I had the pleasure of playing with Gordon Stewart and Mark Walker and despite the sunny weather we decided to add some extra brightness with our shirts and shorts.

 Mr Captain Mark Walker and Gordon Stewart

My round started as the score showed, badly, with my Tee shot on the first ending stuck behind a tree.

The course offered a tough test as shown by only 3 players shooting under par and 8 twos from a sheet of over 90.

Thank you to Brian Jones for being the Competition Official and for providing the following summary.


Division 1 was won by Gavin Elly with 36 points after card play-offs with Michael Easton and Andrew Boyle.

Division 2 was won by Paul Short with 38 points again after a card play-off with Derek Shenton. Paul therefore takes the overall win with his score.

Both winners take prize money of £75 each in vouchers with our Professional.

There were only 8 two’s sharing £118.50, which equates to £14.81 each, the full list is attached.


 There is no Captains bunker, no presentation to issues fines so please donate the fines you would have had to the Captains Charity MIND here  https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/alderleyedgecaptainschallenge

 Next week is the second round of the Hospital Trophy a major with board bragging rights.  As an FYI, the handicap you had for the first round will be the same for the second round, the computer will sort it.


Thank you and have a great week,


Mr Captain
