Centenary Trophy - 30 June
A strong field of fifty competed for the Centenary Trophy in lovely conditions for golf on the last day of June.
Simon Barber ran the well attended presentation filling in for the Captain and Vice Captain in his capacity as Immediate past Captain, demonstrating he has not lost his touch. Although there was some surprise and no little relief as he didn't use his signature catch phrase "that's a paaand" once.
The unlucky Andrew Boyle finished third losing out on a card play off with a great score of 66. Collecting a large bruise on his leg for his troubles, the result of an errant tee shot played from the 8th tee.
In second place and in the prizes also with a great score of 66 was Jo McGregor.
The winner leaving the whole field in her wake by a clear 7 shots coming in with a brilliant 59, and collecting the trophy was Karen Pennington.
Successful and Sunny Spring Starter
It was great to see the sun for the first mixed event of the season - the eighteen hole 4BBB competition was hotly contested with some really good scores. Best of the pile with an impressive 43 points were Ron and Julie Ricketts, with runners up Brian Foden and Helen Fitch 'lagging'!! behind with 41 points. Nearest the pin was Karen Pennington.
Thanks to Chris's team for a great meal.
The draw for the Barbara Ames was made and the list is now on the Mixed noticeboard in the foyer. The first round needs to be played by Sunday 15th May

It was good to welcome a few new faces to the 'Mixed' fold and we all enjoyed a sunny afternoon and a lovely meal after - thank you Chris. The team competition was hotly contested - second place going to Olwen and Mike Davies and Barbara and Graham Moss with 96 points and winners were Brian Foden, Lisa Burns and Sue and John Kendrick with 99 points. Brian Foden sneaked the nearest the pin and Andy Holt and Celia Berent got balls for their 2's. The surprise was that there was plenty of chocolate for both the prizes and on the table....!
