Mark Bexon Winner Group A

Venue: La Torre Golf Club
Date: Wednesday July 22nd

At long last we are back to enjoy a game of competitive golf with the Straight Down the Middle Golf Society. It was a beautiful sunny day with light breeze for our July competition. The course was in great condition and the greens were perfect. There was good turnout with 18 players on the day. It was the first visit to this course for many players.

The scoring format was based on Stableford Full Handicap Points. At the recent AGM It was decided to have two groups for competitions in future; Group A up to 25 handicap and Group B for 26 handicap up to 36.
The winner of Group A was Mark Bexon with 35 points with Ian Stewart in second place on 34 points.
The winner of Group B was Mike Wheeler with 38 points with Norris Bull second with 34 points.
Nearest the Pin on hole 5 was won by MikeWheeler and on hole 15 by John Brown.

Mike Wheeler Winner Group B and Nearest Pin.

After some liquid refreshment and a welcome and update from our Captain Wyn Griffiths, the prize-giving commenced. Prizes were bottles of wine and golf balls. Well doneto Jim Niblo our Secretary for booking this and all forthcoming events.

It would help if everyone all sent their playing confirmation emails back to Jim, as a few emails are getting sent back to members in error.

John Brown Nearest Pin

The next golf match will have been held at Aguilon on Wednesday August 19th. We are always pleased to welcome guests so don’t hesitate to get your friends along to play.
