We will be watching with interest on Isla’s progress in the golfing world.

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)
