Midsummer it definitely was, madness it was not. What a glorious day to be on the golf course and didn’t that course look magnificent in the breaking day.

21 hardy souls got up in the darkness and they were well rewarded for their trouble with a magnificent morning followed by Bucks Fizz on the patio in the sunshine, then a hearty breakfast for all. Special thanks to Bev and Yana for preparing and serving the food at such an early hour and thank you to all for taking part this year.

Some have already signed up for next year !!

1st place – Mel Evans, Ian Baird and Malcolm Carnell with 72 points.

Whitehouse Cup 28th April 2019

On a glorious April day, 36 golfers took to the fairways for this annual Spring cup competition. Format was changed to ladies tee off at the first tee as a trial adjustment, jury still out on whether this was a good format or not.

It would seem by the overall scores which were higher than last autumns cup that perhaps some found this a harder course to play. After announcing the winners 19 enjoyed a delicious meal and very good company.

Winners:

Whitehouse Cup winners – Malcolm Carnall and Marlene Billings
2nd place – Brian and Penny Osborne
3rd place (on count back) – Richard and Lesley Curnock

Birdie Sweep:

Mike and Yvonne Kriese on the 6th.
Rich and Lesley Curnock on the 6th.
Mike Brumage and Jean Bevan on the 7th.

Mixed AMAM Sunday 14th April 2019

The second Mixed event of the year was well attended and enjoyed despite the freezing temperature on the day. 28 golfers took part in this competition and feedback was that the golf was good fun but the organisers need to sort out the weather!!

16 stayed on for a delicious meal ably prepared and served by the kitchen staff.

Winners with 88 points were quartet of Mike Brumage, Patsy Brumage, Howard Browne and Mel Evans; runners up with 77 points on count back were Mark New, Marlene Billings, John Richards and Gill Smith.

The Birdie Sweep was shared by 5 golfers: Mark New, John Richards, Brian Osborne, Ruth Masters and Howard Browne.

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.

Pictured is David, Carol and Club Captain Ian Tyrrell.

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.
