Here we are moving into the festive season with winter events proceeding and terminating, writes John Bridgman.
The Order of Merit has been finalised with Division one being won by Rob Lake. Division two by Alex Freer and Division three by Ray Phare. The Ladies overall winner was Angela Mullerworth, so congratulations to them all for their fine efforts over the period it takes to accomplish the top positions.
The second round of the Seniors Winter eclectic saw a win in division one for Robin Drake with a great score of 41 points. Tony Marshall came second with 37, and Andrzey Sobczak in third place with 36. Division Two winner Rob Dart scored 39 points, holding at bay, Trevor Eardley and Doug Budgen seperated on countback scoring 38 points apiece.
Playing in the last but one match of the day was Brian Major, a senior member for as long as I can remember, who, on the fifth hole, had a flash of brilliance. One-hundred-and-thirty-five yards from tee to green, he selected his trusty five iron. To his and his playing partners amazement the ball with majestic flight, bounced, checked and rolled into the hole. Well done Brian, that was not the end of his luck that day. When he arrived back at the clubhouse for him to stand a customary round of drinks, best part of the seniors had trooped off home for the traditional afternoon nap. So with cash in hand he has promised to put that right some day soon.
Last weekend saw a three man team stableford event on a very mild sunny day. Chaz and Chris Turner accompanied by Ian Dure took the honours with a grand score of 88 points. Home in second place were Stuart Winks, Alex Freer and Scott Howarth with 85. Pete Baldwin, Duane Greenslade and M Tonking took third spot with 84 and in fourth with 82 were Ian Kirk, Paul Voeden and Pete Lawrence.
Up here on the common the whole place is gearing up for a wonderful seasonal extravaganza. I hope to report on festive goings on here on the course on the run up to Christmas. In the meantime play safe and sure, happy whacking, cheers John.
