Bob Anderson was duly elected Captain of Alderley Edge Golf Club at the AGM on Friday night for the 2020 season. Paul Penney was elected as President again.
No Vice-Captain was elected, this will be addressed over the coming months.
Both Bob & Paul will serve on the Gents' Golf Committee next year. The other members duly elected to serve on the Committee are:
All the Committee look forward to seeing you all at the traditional Captain's Drive-In on New Year's Day. In the meantime, have a great Christmas holiday.
Gents Golf AGM - Friday 6th December
The Gents Golf Annual General Meeting will be held on Friday 6th December 2019 in the Clubhouse at 7pm.
Please make every effort to attend to support your new Captain & President. There will be an opportunity at the end of the meeting to raise and discuss any issues you may have relating to Gents or Junior golf at the Club.
Nomination sheets for the Officers and Members of the Gents Golf Committee are posted on the Club Notice-Board next to the bar if anyone would like to stand for the Committee.
Winter League - table at 1 Dec
Winter League was due to start on Sunday, 3rd November at 08.30 but postponed for one week because of the weather.
After four fixtures, Team A are top of the table, ahead by 1 point from Team D.
The latest table is here:
There is one fewer team in the League than last year, but it is expected that it will still be contested in true tradition, hard fought, keenly contested, but respecting the opposition, in the spirit of fair play, and finishing with the customary drink with the opposition in the bar at the Captain's ball-draw.
Good luck and enjoy.
All the information is here:
The 2019 main season at Alderley ended on Saturday with the traditional closing sides.
Good competition, good company, good causes, and good food all washed down with plenty of liquid refreshment made for a really great event.
The Captain's team were convincingly beaten by Mr President's men and Mr President took obvious pleasure in handing the Captain the wooden spoon.
Mr Captain presented the remaining major trophies as follows:
- JJS Kennaugh Trophy 2nd – Andrew Boyle (406) 1st - Andrew Marshall (404)
- Scratch Salver 2nd – Drew Roberts (444) 1st – Gary Johnstone (440)
- Club Championship Best Nett - Andy Slater (132)
Runner-Up - Gary Johnstone (152)
Winner - Logan Stanyer (151)
- Presidents Putter Runner up Jamie McGregor Winner - Paul Penney
- Doubles Knockout Runners up - Sean Hall and Logan Stanyer
Winners - Dan Featherstone and Matt Spiller
Brian Foden made the draw for the 200 club.
NB if your not in it call in at the office and get yourself in, the draw raises money for the club and you get a chance to win. What more could you ask for?
Finally it would be remiss of me not to thank our outgoing Caplain Pete Wood for a second year in the role, what a great job he has done.
Medal Final Result
The Medal Final on 28th Sept was played in conditions that les called "borderline" in his early morning course message. It was very wet underfoot, but two players who've had consistently good performances all year managed the conditions better than the rest. The CSS of 69 reflected the difficulty on the day.
In each Monthly Medal from April to September, the top 2 in division 1 (Handicaps 0-14) and the top 2 in division 2 (Handicap 15 to 28) qualify to play in the Medal Final. The tankards that were won each month and in the final used to be prized trophies, but times have changed, and the winners now receive golf vouchers.
Andy Boyle won the Medal Final by four shots with a nett 67, bringing his handicap down a further shot to 12. Matt Robinson came second with a nett 71.
Gary Johnstone won the subsidiary competition with a gross 75, nett 69.
AEGC win the Gents 9 Hole League
Members - I thought you all might like to know that AEGC have won the Gents 9 Hole League this season, narrowly edging out Flixton GC.
I’d like to thank Steve Jakub “Captain” and all those who played and supported the team, and also Max for organising the home fixtures and being part of the team.
Well done to all concerned.
