We were blessed with super weather with the handicap secretary donning shorts and not regretting it!! An OK turnout for March of 14, that said another couple would have been perfect giving a nice round 16 (4x fourballs).
The first trophies of the year were at stake with Andy Williams & Kevin Leftley winning comfortably having nursed the yellow ball around all 18 holes. Well done gentleman.
Mad March Jugs Trophy
Both scores counted with the holder of the yellow ball scores counting double. The result was: –
|Winners||Andy Williams & Kevin Leftley||114|
|Second||Mark Hughes & Micky Mann||107|
|Third||John Collingwood & Jerry Watkiss||97|
A secondary event on this occasion with a very good round of golf played by Mark Hughes hitting the ball very well from tee to green. The average stableford score for the day was exactly 30 reflecting a difficult day for high scoring. This event was played off full society handicaps with the outcome being: –
Nearest the Pin in two (7th Hole 146 yards).
A cracking shot from Chris Bucks who went on to get his par on this tough hole.
Longest Drive (18th Hole 612 yards).
Sandi Hoolahan making the most of her teeing off advantage on this hole.
Only four birdies were achieved on the day as follows:-
|Player||Hole||Score||Yards & Stroke index|
|Alan Bigley||5th||4 on the par 5||476 yds SI 16|
|Joe Carroll||8th||3 on the par 4||329 yds SI 12|
|Mark Hughes||10th||3 on the par 4||308 yds SI 9|
|Micky Mann||10th||3 on the par 4||308 yds SI 9|
The societies next event is scheduled for GOOD FRIDAY playing the Woosnam course at Dale Hill on the 15th April. Always a popular event so do get the date in your diary and lets hope the good weather continues.
