Annual General Meeting
The Secretary has published his review of AGM Details…
Two women from the MBA programme at the London Business School are researching the needs of golfing women for clothing and equipment. They are hoping that our members will fill in the web based questionnaire.
Winter Comp Rd 4 / Princes Eclectic Rd 2
The competition was cancelled due to adverse weather conditions.
In spite of wet inclement conditions, 14 hardy competitors completed the course, with some very good scores returned. Matt Roadnight led the way with 43 points over three other scores in the 40s by Paul Robinson, Paul Doran and Jim Fogarty.
The event was a non-qualifier for handicapping purposes.
In the Winter Competition, 3 now tie for first place on 106:
Paul Doran, Jon Morris and Ian Smith, with Lee Eden and Jim Fogarty just one behind.
In the Prince’s Eclectic, John Morris on 67 leads Jim Fogarty by one with Graeme Syme one further back.
Winter Comp Rd 3 / Dukes Eclectic Rd 2
Nine ladies turned out on a day that turned out better than forecast (weather-wise – no hail!). Jayne Maxwell won with 32 points with Julie Smith came second with 29 points.
The CSS went up by 3 points (34 stableford points) and this was a reduction only round.
Julie Smith leads the pack in the cumulative Duke’s Eclectic competition after 2 rounds.
Duke’s absorbed most of the heavy overnight rain and for many competitors it was a change not to play on frozen ground. A level par back 9 helped winner Ian Smith on 38 points to draw one point clear of Sean Dalton. Richard Kenwood and Lee Eden were a further point adrift.
CSS computed to SSS 68.
Ian’s fine round means that he now leads Lee Eden by one point after three rounds of the Winter Competition.
Ian leads Paul Doran by 4 points in the associated Duke’s Eclectic competition.
Ten ladies turned out to play in rather warmer conditions than have been the norm recently. The competition of the day was a stableford. The winner was Susan Smith with 31 points followed by Lia Donath with 29 points just shading it from Maureen Slade also with 29 points (Lia had the better back nine).
The CSS increased by three (33 stableford points) and this was a reduction only round with no changes to handicaps.
On another cold and frosty day, the clear winner by 3 points from Graeme Syme was Richard Kenwood on 39 points.
With CSS unchanged from SSS 67.
Monthly Medal / Ladies Team Event
On the first Sunday in January, a very cold frosty day, five intrepid ladies turned out to play a four ball better ball off full handicap. Doreen Dolby teamed up with Cheryl Woodhouse, Alison Chadwick and Susan Smith partnered each other and Sheena had a secret partner chosen at random, who turned out to be Susan.
Sheena and Susan ended the game with 39 stableford points. Cheryl and Doreen dove tailed their game and came in with 41 stableford points to win the day, Close on their heels were Alison and Susan coming in with 40 points.
A hard frost set the scene for play for the day. Scoring overall was good with CSS down one from SSS 68. At first five 67s seemed to have been returned, but close scrutiny of Sean Dalton’s card revealed a marker’s casting error on the back 9 in Sean’s favour. Sean was therefore the winner with 66 from Ron Linden, Paul Doran, Gurpal Sekhon and John Morris with count backs applying for the latter.
Members toasted the New Year with some shivering more than others.
