Playing at our home course this week where conditions were very good. The majority got into the spirit of Christmas by wearing seasonal outfits, the best of whom Gordy’ Rudolf’ Brindley winning a prize for his efforts.
Incredibly the 2’s pot with 44 players taking part was NOT won, this was in part down to the difficult pin positions on the day, the 2’s pot now rolls over to next week at the same course.
Nearest the pins sponsored by The Ale House saw winners, Ronnie McCully x 2, Colin Wilson, Bob Kemp and Kevin ‘9 Fingers’ Bird collecting prizes.
It was a day contrasts for our next winners with the player most challenged on the day being Ricky Cowan who scored a measly 11pts, hopefully Ricky will receive a couple of lessons from Santa ! Ricky’s better half Jane who won best Lady and a share of the overall prizes with a brilliant 35pts.
Our Guest category saw a couple of new members figuring which is great with Russell Bond 3rd with 28pts, Gareth Davies 2nd with 34 pts and playing close to his handicap of 15 was Mike Greatrex scoring 36pts….well done.
On to our Gold and Silver scores ……third in Silver with 31 was the festive Gordy, second Ian Parkinson with 33 and as mentioned before a great win for Jane Cowan with her 35pts.
Gold saw some regular podium winners with ‘Dodgy’ Declan Crowley signing off his year third with 31 pts, ex Capitano Mr Lee 2nd with 33pts and top of the Christmas Tree with 38 pts was the in form Russell ‘I was smashing it’ Bailey with 38 pts….Happy New Christmas handicap Russ!!!!
