Mixed Spring Triads 10th March 2019

Despite gale force wind and at times driving snow and hailstones, 30 hardy golfers took to the fairways for the first Mixed 2019 event. Everyone completed the course which was a feat in itself and not surprisingly scores were not that high but the general consensus was that the event went well.

20 stayed on for the meal which was delicious and very capably catered and served by the young staff. The day was special for one member of the entrants, Joan Hunt celebrated a ‘large’ birthday with all toasting her health with some bubbly and several renditions of ‘Happy Birthday’.

On behalf of the organisers thank you to all for supporting this event and here’s to the next one, the AM AM on Sunday 14th April. The sign-up sheet is on the Mixed Event noticeboard.

Winners with 64 points were trio of John Richards, Conryn Abbott and Roger Smith; runners up were Ken Hunt, Stephanie Bartlett and Pat Saville. The Birdie Sweep was won by the only birdie on the day, David Kewley

Mixed Christmas Competition

This annual competition took place on Saturday 8th December.

Unfortunately only an afternoon event took place, when 30 players in drawn teams of three, best two scores to count took to the course for the 12 noon shotgun start. Each team enjoyed a welcomed pitstop to partake in a well deserved hot mince pie and mulled wine. Good Stableford scores were hard to come by due to damp conditions, however winning with a total of 72 points on count back were Richard Curnock, Mark Harrison and Gill Smith.

Runners up were John Richards, Geoff Burton and Marlene Billings and 3rd place with 68 points were Ashley Curnock, Ken Hunt and Conryn Abbott.

Other prizes were for Longest Drives, Stephanie Bartlett and Ashley Curnock and Nearest the Pins were Annie Bird and Ian Axcell.

Birdies were achieved by Anne Cowley, Richard Curnock, Mark Harrison, John Richards, Ashley Curnock, Ian Axcell, Annie Bird and Matt Langmead.

Special thanks go to Pete Lawrance for providing the mince pies, cost of which was kindly donated to the Captains Charity and to the helpers, Enid Walker and Gillian Spencer.

Autumn Triads

On a beautiful Autumnal Sunday seven drawn teams of three played in the penultimate mixed in house event of the year. With the best two scores to count all were hoping their team would excel. Good scores were handed in to the Pro shop as the teams returned but it wasn’t until the final teams’ card was handed in, that the winners were declared on count back.

The winning team was Brian Osborne, Malcolm Carnall and Yvonne Kriese with 78, followed by Ian Tyrrell, Marlene Billings and Pat Saville.

Birdies were achieved on the 9th by Joan Hunt, 13th by Brian Osborne and 16th by Ian Tyrrell.

After the presentation of The Frank Vincent Trophy and the days winners, all enjoyed a two course supper with tales of the ‘if only’s’.

The Frank Vincent Trophy

Eighteen mixed pairs competed for the prestigious Frank Vincent Trophy in the matchplay knockout competition starting in May and culminating with the final in October. The final was played between Ian Hughes with partner Ruth Masters and David Higgins with partner Carol Yates. It was a very close contest with Ian and Ruth 2 up until David and Carol won the 15th and 16th to make it all square. They then won the 17th and halved the 18th to become the eventual winners. Well done David and Carol, an extremely well suited pair! The presentation was made after the Autumn Triads competition on 21st October.

Autumn Whitehouse Cups

Eventual winners were Richard Curnock and Penny Osborne with a nett score of 73.5, runners up were John Stanley and Conryn Abbott with 74 and third Doug Sharp and Dinah Wood with 74.5.
