COUNTY TOWN GOLF CLUB’S OPEN DAY

We are hosting an Open afternoon on Sunday September 1st to give locals a chance to try out the course or give golf a go.

From 1.00pm onwards, golfers can grab either 9 or 18 holes for free, joining a fun four-ball with an existing member.

Non-golfers keen to try out the game can sign-up for a starter session from 2.00pm on the practice ground and putting area.

Both will be followed by a BBQ available for all guests and those interested in joining the Condover-based club can sign up to a special membership deal on the day.

According to chair of marketing, Mark Wootton, golf is introducing a number of initiatives to shake off its stuffy image and appeal to a wider audience.

“For our part, we have a number of relatively new membership categories to better suit the golfer who would like to be part of a club, but who has pressure on his or her time.

“These include a Lifestyle Membership aimed at those who can’t commit to more than 20 18-hole rounds a year and an autumn sign-up from September through to January offering unlimited golf for just £150.

“In addition, our professional and his team run one-hour regular group sessions for those who want to give the sport a try and have no previous experience and these are proving especially popular with ladies and juniors.”

Mark points out that the parkland course has been in exceptionally good condition all year and has won accolades for its slick and true greens.

“We are really fortunate to have a course that has beautifully matured and frames some great views over the glorious south Shropshire countryside.

“Combine this with an active clubhouse, a great food and drink offering and one of the best stocked golf shops in the county, then we believe that Shrewsbury has more to offer than many in the county.”

Those interested in taking part in the open day, should contact the secretary, Tony Rowe for more details on: 01743 872977 (opt 5) or [email protected]

Captains Charity Golf Day

The Club Captain and Lady Captain of Shrewsbury Golf Club are holding an Open 18 Hole Charity Golf Day on Sunday 8 September 2019.  The proceeds of the day will be donated to the Pancreatic Cancer UK and Parkinson’s UK.

Both Captains are hoping that local businesses will support this Nineteenth Open Charity Day and make it a huge success by sponsoring a tee for £50 including VAT.  We anticipate that each of the 18 tees will be sponsored, and in return we invite you to display your company name and logo, or the name of individual sponsors on the appointed tee.  Allocation of sponsors for the 18 tees will be in strict rotation following receipt of the sponsorship fee. 

We also invite your company or group of golfers to enter a team for the 18 Hole 4 Ball Betterball Stableford Competition (90% handicap) recording the best two scores to count for the team prizes.  Teams can be any combination of ladies or gentlemen.

The golf day will commence with teams at their appointed tee for a 9am Shotgun Start.  Competition format and cards etc will be available when booking in, which should be completed by 8.30am.  The cost of each team is £90 which includes a light lunch prior to the prize presentation.

If you can help Shrewsbury Golf Club raise monies for these worthy charities by sponsoring a tee or raising a team, please pick up an Entry Form from the Clubhouse Foyer, downlaod form by clicking below or call the Secretary's Office to request a form on 01743 872977  and return the entry form to the Club before Friday 30 August 2019 to book both or either of these two options.

Men's Club Championships Sunday 7th July 2019

This year's Club Championships were a fantastic event. The new format of a two tee start worked well with everyone finishing at similar times and therefore providing a great atmosphere in the clubhouse after the event.

Well done to Colin Thaw and David Sharpe who provided a great BBQ with the proceeds going to charity.

The golf course was in great condition and this presented the opportunity for our better players to post some good scores. A special mention for Tom Hancock who shot the best morning gross score of 69. This is Tom's personal best score in a competition and gave him the lead going into the afternoon.

Unfortunately Tom dropped a few shots in the afternoon and the more experienced players came through in the afternoon. Barry Ruddick had the lead through 27 holes, but Nick Evans and Tom Kerr finished strongly with Tom Kerr chipping in for a two on the 17th to tie with Nick Evans going down the 36th hole. 

With both players making par, The Championship was decided by the way of a four hole play-off. With both players making par on the 1st and 9th hole. Nick took an advantage on the 10th after Tom missed the fairway with his tee shot, and Nick made birdie to close the door.

Congratulations to Nick Evans on winning his first Club Championship after finishing runner-up on a couple of occasions in recent years, it was great for Nick to get his hands on the trophy.

Congratulations also to Gordon Taylor who played in our 36 hole Club Championshi on Sunday. Gordon who is 84 years old walked around the 36 holes without the use of a buggy and shot a gross score of 83! Beating his age by one.

Hopefully this will inspire more of you to enter next year's 36 hole Championships.

Overall Gross Scores

First place - Nick Evans (73 & 69 = 142)
Second place - Thomas Kerr (72 & 70 = 142)
Third place - Barry Ruddick (71 & 72 = 143)

Overall Nett Scores

First place - Dean Suter (64 & 70 = 134)
Second place - Ryan Davies (70 & 66 = 136)
Third place - Mark Laidler (67 & 69 = 136)
