Senior Mens Open Competition

During the course of the year Alfreton Golf Club welcomes participants to their various Open Competitions. June traditionally is the month for the Seniors; Men over the age of 55 playing in a pairs betterball stableford over 18 holes.

With the Club Invitation day having been played just a few weeks ago the course was presented in an excellent condition, and this year the seniors were tested by being asked to play off the white pots. The recent dry spell of weather making the ball run further made up for that extra distance on the holes!

An enjoyable day was had by all the golfers and prizes were
presented by the Club Captain, Dereck Martin in the evening in the Clubhouse.

The winners were:
1st : Keith Hopkinson (Alfreton) and Ken Fletcher (Tapton) (46pts) (pic above)
2nd : Alwyn Brooks and Nick Asker (44pts) (pic below)
3rd : Barry Sherriff and John Newton (43pts)
4th : Ken Swift and Phil Bennett (41pts)

Nearest the Pin winners: Tom Rawlinson on the 6th and Steve Butt on the 18th. Thanks to the organisers and caterers for making the event run smoothly as always.

Watch out for future Open events this year which include a Mixed Open on 11th July and a Ladies Open on 7th August.
