As expected the weather is beginning to deteriorate and Woodbury Park, being a parkland course the leaves are falling in plentiful amounts, writes John Bridgman.
During the course of the winter months the green keepers will be busy with ditches, fallen trees, and more importantly the removal of some less needed bunkers. Meanwhile, in the last week of mild weather and a course still playing well, the scores are still petty useful.
Last weekend saw a Texas Scramble take place with a shotgun start. There were prizes for four placed teams of four players. Home in first place with a score of 58-2 and a better back six were the foursome of L Thorpe, J Davidson, M Hayne and I Reeves.
In second place, with the same score were the four of P Crafer, D Cawse, C Sandry and I Darvelle.
Third, with 58-4, were M Severn, M Hallinan, G Jones and T Taylor. Fourth were Mr and Mrs Mullerworth, and Mr and Mrs Beaven with 60-5 points. Well done, to all concerned.
The Woodbury Park seniors began the Winter Eclectic with a few high scores on show!
Division One saw Robin Drake home in 41 points. Second was Derek Knights on 39, with John Man third on 38. Division Two had Rob Dart in with 38, Simon Davies second on 35 along with Alistair Robertson also on 35, but edged out on countback.
The Midweek Stableford was a win for Paul Voeden on 33, Robin Dummelow on 32 and Pete Symes on 31, in second and third place.
Finally, to keep you informed, Tom Jessamine our new young professional played in his first event at Tiverton. Playing alongside twenty others he scored 32 points, and tied in twelfth place. A long road ahead for Tom, but he will do well I’m sure.
This month will see us enjoying that time of the year when Presentation Evening gets us all together to celebrate the triumphs of our fellow golfers. So, keep your waterproofs in good order, and descent studs in your shoes because your going to need them, eh!
Happy whacking, cheers John.
