Presidents Putter Final Sunday 29 September 2019

Match of the Day

The much anticipated Presidents Putter Final was played on Sunday 29th September.

The Club President, Jean Evans, watched the tee off on the first tee in bright sunshine. Setting off on their 36 hole match, Dave Slater and Oliver Davies produced an exciting and closely contested display of golf at its best.

The first 18 holes were close with David, playing off a handicap of 16 leading by 3 at the ninth hole. Oliver, playing off 8 fought hard and his second shot at 12 found the green just past the pin, a wonderful golf shot. Rain closed in and the weather noticeably deteriorated with the wind becoming stronger. The first 18 holes ended with David still 3 up.

After lunch the weather was again inclement, but the match produced more determined golf from both players, their contrasting styles resulting in close scores on each hole. David’s low drives and accurate chipping enabled him to get to dormy by the 12th hole, but showing great skill and helped by the ball hitting the flag and dropping close to the hole on 13, Oliver won the next two holes. Inevitably, a half on the 15th resulted in the match ending in a 4 / 3 win for David Slater.

Congratulations to both players.

Junior Academy 2019

Last week we held the last Friday night junior academy evening of the summer.

We have averaged over 20 juniors per week and it is great to see some of these juniors now progressing into the junior section and getting out on to the golf course.

Our Junior Team have progressed well this year and we hope to see some of our junior academy players representing the junior team next year.

Many thanks to our Junior Organiser Graham Evans and all of the volunteers who have helped to make the sessions so successful.

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.
