Golf Club Mixed Open Competition

11th July was the Mixed Open Competition at Alfreton Golf Club. The summer sunshine prevailed again and the day’s format was a two ball Texas Scramble.

The dry course conditions called for a variety of controlled drives and pitch and run shots to manoeuvre the ball around the fairways.

As usual, there were always a few teams that managed to master the course whether by skill or good fortune, (probably a combination of of both). The winning scores were two or three shots better than last year. Ultimately new Members for 2018, Martin and Margaret McCarthy outscored the field, well done to them.

The presentation by the Captain, Dereck Martin and meal took place in the Clubhouse in the evening.

The winners were:
1st: Margaret and Martin McCarthy with a score of 55.4
2nd: Suz White and Steve Seymour, 56.8
3rd: Diana Riley and David Evans, 57.7
4th: Susan and Alan Bayley, 57.9

Nearest the Pin winners: Liz Robinson on the 6th 7′ 3″; and Paul Eveson on the 18th, 5′ 8″.

It was a great day and fine atmosphere in the club afterwards. Thanks to
the organisers and caterers for making the event run smoothly as always.
