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.
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,
