Club de Golf May Competition 

Phew – It was certainly a hot one! No doubt there will be a few sore arms, legs, heads and various other body parts as a result of a scorching May day (at long last I hear you all cry!).

Firstly thanks to David Evans from Blacktower Financial Management who kindly agreed to sponsor the event providing a fabulous new trophy and some great prizes.  Hopefully this will be the first of many events in collaboration with David and BFM.

On 11th April we played for the Ron Moss Memorial Trophy. 28 players took to the course with high hopes of taking home the trophy.  The weather was perfect for scoring. After all the rain the course was in good condition, the greens fast, although the rough was long and difficult.  Last year’s runner-up D Watts who was pipped at the post made a very determined effort to go one better, which he duly did with a fantastic 44 points, winning the competition.

2nd S Parsons, who on the 18 green knocked in 40 foot for sole position of runner-up with 36 points.

3rd J Lawlor 35 points c/po

4thN. Morgan 35 points c/po

5th M. Lee 35 points

6th D Deegan 34 points.

There were just couple 2’s; T Andrew and D Caldwell.

Thanks to Norman and Brian for checking cards, also to Norman for presenting the trophy to the winner Des Watts.

Men’s Wednesday 8th May Competition

It was a beautiful golfing day and the course was looking very good.  The competition on the day was 3 to score on holes 1 to 11; 2 to score on holes 12 to 18.  Full h/cp scoring at the moment is very good as every one’s h/cp is shooting up under the WHS. This will take time to settle in.


1st N Morgan, J Layland, T Hinkley, as a 3 ball they scored 118 points. They picked Alistair Rae’s card who scored 26 points on the back 9 which brought the winning score to 132.  Well done Alistair – a day to remember.

Congratulations to all players.

There were 2 two’s; A Rae and D Deegan.
