9 Hole league result against Woodside GC

Last night, the 9th June,  we played a Home Match against Woodside Golf Club in the 9 Hole League.

Chris Hoyland managed the whole process like clockwork, despite not playing.

  • First out was Captain and Andy Wells versus their Captain and one of their better players.  We won 3 and 2 but were never down.
  • Sean Hall and Logan Stanyer won their match
  • Bob Anderson and Andrew Marshall won their match
    • you might see a theme here
  • Ollie Lane and Zac Penney ......  won their match

A complete victory for Alderley winning all four matches.  Their organiser was happy to only have been beaten 2 and 1 by Zac and Ollie

Chris further impressed everyone because whilst we were knocking a white ball around the course he had been off for a couple of sets of tennis and still had time to knock up some very tasty pizzas for the players at the end.

 

Thank you to the players for WINNING and an especially BIG THANK YOU to Chris for organising the whole thing and as usual putting on some great catering.

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.
