Seniors Christmas Competitiion

Our pairs better ball format Christmas Competiton off 90% handicap was played yesterday, 2 weeks after the original ‘washed out’ event. The course in great condition despite the overnight rain, and thankfully that rain remained absent during play with temperatures remarkably mild for the latter half of December!

Of the pairs that participated the unlucky ones were Ian Cook and Stan Munks who despite scoring 40 points – finished 7th – and there were only 6 prizes! ☹

Above that it was very competitive with five pairs, with scores of 41 and 42, having to be sorted by back 9 and back 6 countbacks to claim 6th to 2nd places. A big thanks to our Pro Nev Hallam for sorting all that out!!

The runners up were Paul Russell and Gordon Kells, but their 42 points was a full 3 shots short of this year’s winners, Keith Hopkinson and Martin McCarthy with a very impressive 45 points.

In addition to the main prizes there were two nearest the pin holes, and they were won by Mike Rapkins and Alan Beastall.

Thankyou to Gordon Kells for his hard work sorting out the rearranged day and for organising the prizes as well.
