President's Prize (12 Sep) and Singles Stableford (19 Sep)
President's Prize - Sat 12 Sep
The winner was Ed Lawton with a fantastic 64 leading the field by 2 shots. Ed was a junior when Mr Prez was running the juniors section.
The only other rounds under par on the day were two 66’s with Paul McCormack pipping Andy Slater to take second place on a card playoff.
There were 13 two's on the day, Joshe Towne was somewhat greedy and claimed three of them!!

Singles Stableford - Sat 19 Sep
Really great weather but the scoring was low for a Saturday, especially with a field of 71 players. The wind and the speedy greens must have had quite an impact, they did on me.
Paul Finney continues with his good run of form as does Keith Doyle and the ever consistent Garry Olson. Keith was unlucky to come second on a card countback with the top three being:
1 Paul Finney 35
2 Keith Doyle 35
3 Garry Olson 34
There were 11 Twos.
As we come to the end of the season it is good to see the course in such good condition and the weather holding out for us to take advantage of it.

Captain's Prize - 5/6 September
The Captain's Prize was played for on Saturday and Sunday in somewhat wet and windy conditions (and with tricky pin positions ) which kept the scores relatively high.
Course scratch core was 69 on Saturday and 71 on Sunday !
On day 1 Gary Johnstone , Mike Easton and Ed Lawton took the lead with net 68's.
On day 2 the best score (and the only one under par over the week end ) was the 66 of Mike Davies which moved him up the leaderboard to fifth overall.
Captain Bob Anderson presented the first prize to Drew Roberts with an aggregate score of 139. The runner up was Pete Wood with a 140. Keith Doyle and Gary Johnstone followed in the order with 142's.
This was the first presentation of the season for Bob and the President Paul Penney thanked him for the arrangements including the nice food and drinks !
On Day 1 there were 13 twos. On Day 2 there were just four twos.
Jubilee Vase - Sat 29 Aug
Mixed weather for this Major, the Jubilee Vase, the morning players seemed to get the best of the weather.
Considering the weather this week I think the ground staff did an excellent job of keeping the course open in the week and in keeping in such good condition for the Saturday. Especially when some other clubs were closed when we were open. Gary Johnstone please pass our thanks on to the team.
About the course, for those that do not know, essential drainage work is to be carried out at the end of September which will hopefully help through the winter.
Back to the competition and Jon Grundy, after some good showings in the Singles and Doubles knockouts came through with a stunning performance with 41 points. He battled the weather and strong field to keep Logan Stanyer in second place.
The top 3 were:
First - Jon Grundy 41 points and now playing off 19 (19.4) after a general play reduction
Second - Logan Stanyer 39 and now playing off 5 (5.1)
Third - Gavin Elly 37 points and now playing off 9 (9.3)
There were not as many 2s as there have been which means with 73 players the 2s pot was £109.50 and was shared by 11 players, including Mr. Captain, earning £9.95 per two.
Like the rest of you, I am looking forward to the Captain's weekend and I hope I play better.
See you on the course

A great summers day to have a team-based event and a chance to introduce 15 introductory/temporary members to the fun, banter, beer and competitive side of Alderley Edge Golf Club.

In second place with Gross 61 net 56.3 were: Richard Walker, Keith Doyle, Andrew Ashcroft and Andrew Marshall
