Hoebridge Away Day
The intrepid golfers who ventured on the away day were rewarded with ideal weather and a nice day out.
Proving that a full set of clubs is not necessary for an astonishing round, David Marsh carded 63, dropping just 3 shots on the front 9. He finished just 2 ahead of Tim Meyer who must rue that seven at 17. Best lady with a very commendable 69 was Julie Smith, showing her versatility just in time for the upcoming Ruffians Ryder Cup.
The outcome leaves the Top Dog Trophy positions unchanged, confirming Dean Morgan the 2006 Top Dog one point ahead of Nick Rogers.
Courses Closed 17 September
The golf courses are closed on this day to make way for an athletics event at the Park. The golf club has had just 8 days notice of the closure, and very little else is known about the preferred event. We don’t know of any alternative arrangements for golf.

Ladies Weekend Away
The Lady Captain rounds up the Autumn weekend away at Tewkesbury Park Hotel & Golf Club.
The September Monthly Medal was won by Joan Mulcahy on 64. Jayne Maxwell and Jini Beacham trailed in 2nd and 3rd with 66.
Tracy Wright’s consistent scoring saw her win the 2006 Committee Cup with rounds of 38 & 36 points. Though in 7th place after the first round, Jini Beacham’s excellent 41 points in R2 propelled her into 2nd place overall.
Osman Chaudry powered his way to a truly remarkable and rare 57 to win GMT round 8. An impeccable back nine 38 was preceded by a front nine 41 with the only blemish a 7 on the 8th. Well done indeed Osman! Six behind was Jason Loubser with a 63 incorporating one under par on back nine. Stuart Nash and Tim Meyer were one shot further behind with 64s.
Unsurprising with the depth of good scoring was the reduction of CSS from SSS by one to 67. Men’s handicap list…
Jason’s 63 was enough to pass John Ahad on the Grand Medal Trophy leader board with Jason the victor by one on 33.
The Top Dog Trophy interim position has been updated with the results of the individual match play results, with the Two Courses Cup finalists Martin & Julian awarded 8 minimum points for now.
Report due soon…
After a slow and cautious start, Ian Smith and David Marsh scored heavily on the back 9 (24 points) to claim the Burgess Cup with 39 points. A point behind were Messrs. Nash & Heale and Meyer & Harrington. The dream pairing from previous week’s performance of Phil Flanagan and Richard Owen had a rare off-day with 28 points.
