The Acorns Silver Salver

The Acorns Silver Salver


It goes without saying that we golfers are very much responsible for the way we dress, and manage our etiquette and speed of play on the course, writes John Bridgman.

Periodically something has to be said in respect of all these points. Our club has, like so many others, needed to undertake measures to enforce the traditions of all aspects forementioned. Please do your best to keep abreast of them, and enjoy your golf so much more, thank you.

Now, how did we all do here at ‘the jewel in the crown’. Invitation Day saw a bumper field of players take to the course, and in so doing saw the outright winning pair of R Drake and J Margesson home with 47 points.

J Veal and I Crocker came in second, a point behind with 46. Third placed pair of M Pitcher and D Hancock scored 44. Now for the ladies; P O’Neill and S Mason, scoring 38 points, winning on countback from M MaCassey and L Meaton, also on 38. Third place went to P Cowl and M Underwood, 37.

The Midweek medal was won by Ian Stephenson 77, (with a handicap of 10) meaning a score of 67.

John Dick 80, (11) 69 came second and third place was taken by Alan Richards 75 (4) 71.

The Acorns men roll up was played to win a silver salver, and the four ball better ball pairing of John Day and Gary Wilson were the winners on 49 points.

Finally, the seniors played out a Texas Scramble, and Mike Dillon, Alan Stone and Alan Bryant took the honours with 65-1. Russell Lee, Mike Dickens and Glen Dawson scored 66-1, and Ian Fry, Kevin Wortt and Terry Tilbury were third on 67-2.

Another enjoyable period of golf for all concerned, but, please once again remember those responsibilities I mentioned earlier. Don’t upset the ‘Ranger’, should he need to address any such problem while your playing.

Just take the advice given and get on with this wonderful game. Happy whacking, John.
