Mixed Competitions and Events

Evesham Golf Club runs a wide range of mixed competitions and matches for golfers of all ages and abilities

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

The Mixed In-house Autumn Whitehouse Cups Competition was held on Sunday 7th October. An enthusiastic, large turn out of 18 mixed pairs took to the fairways in ideal conditions.

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.

Mixed Christmas Competition - 2nd December

On a milder morning, with unexpected rain, 20 players set off in teams of three (one team of two) for the 8am Shotgun start. Barely full light our teams were in good spirits, only dampened by the rain. Each team enjoyed a golf stop whilst passing the 4th or 13th for a much deserved refreshment of warm mulled wine and mince pies. Clearly this helped as all teams were eager to set off again and complete their round. Some good stableford scores came in with the winning team being Ian Tyrrell, Granthan Speake and Carol Yates with 80 points, followed by Phil Wheeler, Stuart Berry and Jenny Masser with 78 points and in 3rd place were Alan Dufty, Jill Cleary and Steve Deaking with 75 points.

Birdies were: Ian Tyrrell on the 4th and 7th, Chris Jewkes on the 9th and Steve Young on the 15th.

After a break in the weather, now hoping for better conditions our 12 noon shotgun start had 30 players. Sadly after only an hour they encountered mizzy rain for the rest of their round. Again warm mulled wine and mince pies were served to help them on their way. Some amazing scores came in together with a high number of birdies. The winning team was Geoff Wellens, Marlene Billings and John Hutcheon with 88 stableford points. In second place with 87 points on count back were Mark New, Jerry Cain and Jean Bevan, followed by Ruth Masters, Stephanie Bartlett and Dave Mullett.

Birdies were: Geoff Wellens on the 13th, Will Sellar 6th, Richard Curnock 14th, Mark New 7th & 14th, Mike Abraham 6th, Lee Lambourne 16th and Geoff Insall on 1st, 15th & 17th.

Brian Osborne presented the prizes after the morning and afternoon competitions. We do believe all enjoyed their day with fun and laughter, it was great to see the Clubhouse vibrant with happy and contented players sharing their good shots (and not so) with all.

Special thanks go to Pete Lawrence for providing the mince pies, and our helpers, Beryl Osborne, Audrey Tompkins, Enid Walker and Hana Reid.

Mixed Autumn Triads

Our penultimate mixed event for 2017 was the Autumn Triads played on Sunday 22nd October. The forecast was for the tail end of Storm Brian with light cloud, but what was experienced was persistent rain showers, sadly dampening some players spirits. Five well drawn teams played and fought against the elements to bring home some good scores. Captain Brian thought his team had stormed to victory when handing in his teams card to Ryan. Whilst a very commendable score was achieved by them little did he know that the winning card had already been handed in by the victors John Machin, Jean Bevan and Penny Osborne coming in with 82 points. Brian Osborne, Annie Bird and Eunice Allen were runners up with a very respectable 81 points.

Brian Osborne had a birdie on the 6th and Annie Bird on the 7th.

Lots of healthy banter followed in the clubhouse about ‘if only’ and ‘what if’s’ ending the day with a well deserved and delicious meal cooked by Bev.

Mid-Summer Madness

Friday 16th June 2017

21 braved the rigours of a 3:30am rise for the 4:30am tee off time in the annual, traditional Mid-Summer Madness mixed competition. The well balanced drawn teams meant a close encounter with generally good scores despite the fact that the first two holes were played in semi darkness. The only indication of golf being played was the sound of club on ball and in some cases balls hitting trees never to be found again! The course was superbly presented, beautifully enhanced by the first light and sun rise.

Winners were Mark Harrison, George Parker and Malcolm Carnall with a score of 79 points.

Runners Up were Geoff Wellens, Fraser Williamson and Penny Osborne with a score of 78 points.

The event culminated with a well deserved breakfast and presentation.

Spring Whitehoue Cups

The first of the Whitehouse Cups competition was played on Sunday 7th May. Ten mixed pairs enjoyed beautiful sunshine, some even in summer shorts to grace our manicured course. The greens were running fast, which caught one or two out, but it was wonderful to enjoy our course in such lush condition.

Everyone gathered on the patio for post match discussions before enjoying a well needed two course meal. Brian Osborne presented the Cups to the winners Phil Wheeler and Enid Walker with a net score of 76. Missing out by half a point were Richard and Lesley Curnock with net 76.5.

As the scores were totalled it was evident that each player contributed a score for 9 holes, a perfect team performance!

Mixed Spring Triads

The first Mixed event for 2017 kicked off with the Mixed Spring Triads on Sunday 19th March. Twenty four players in teams of three graced our fairways on a dry, blustery day making playing conditions tricky. The course was looking very spring like, daffodils in full bloom and blossom in its full glory. It was a very enjoyable afternoon for all with a most welcomed two course meal waiting for us.

The winners with a score of 80 points were Richard Curnock, Joan Hunt and Conryn Abbott

The runners up with a score of 74 points were Roger Smith, Sandy Insall and Lesley Kewley.

Mixed Christmas Competition

On Saturday 3rd December members of Evesham Golf Club played their Mixed Christmas Competition. The format being mixed teams of three, best two stableford scores to count on each hole full handicap allowance.

Due to the high number of entrants for this well supported competition there was two shot gun starts, one at 8:00 am and another at 12:00 pm. On the 14th tee everyone was greeted with a glass of warm mulled wine and a locally made delicious mince pie which was greatly appreciated.

Some amazing scores did come in considering the cooler weather conditions, maybe the high number of 'birdies’ which were claimed did contribute to the final excellent scores of the winning teams.The overall winners of the competition was Marleen Billings, Jean Bevan and Geoff Welland who came in with 87 stableford points, well played.

The picture is of Marleen Billings, Jean Bevan and Geoff Welland with the Captain, Brian Osborne, in the background having presented the prizes.
