The weather was very kind to us this year with the best conditions possible for the 35 players who participated.
We have received various messages and comments about how fun this event was and presented a stern test of the short game and highlighted some areas of weakness that need some attention for some players.
This year the winning score for the men was 28 (+1) and was achieved by Simon Rowland. Well done Simon this was an excellent score and was closely competed against by runners up Sacha Chavlin 29 (+2) and Jon Grafton (+2).
Our ladies winner with a very respectable score of 33 (+6) was Ginny Greig and second place with a score of 35 (+8) goes to Janet Dewey.
Well done to everyone who took part and we look forward to sharing with you all a video which is being made up and will be with me over the next couple of weeks.

Many of you will be already aware that when we have a competition which become a mixed competition due to lower than 3 ladies playing, ladies receive 3 courtesy shots to their handicap. This is due to the course S.S.S (Standard Scratch Score) being different from the red plates to the white plates.
These extra 3 shots will be added to the players' handicap when we enter the scores onto the handicapping system.
IMPORTANT: Please remember ladies, that when a competition is mixed (once again due to 2 or 1 ladies playing) that you have these 3 extra shots and that you take this into consideration when scoring as you wouldn't want to pick up your ball before you have taken into consideration of these extra shots as you could do yourself out of a point!
For example: Mrs Great plays has a handicap of 36 which means she usually receives 2 shots per hole but on this occasion with the competition being mixed she receives 3 extra shots onto her handicap making her handicap for this mixed event 39.
So on 3 holes she will now be receiving 3 shots not the usual 2 she would normally receive. These 3 holes will of course be the 3 hardest holes (stroke index 1,2 &3) so 2nd, 4th and 11th holes. She must remember that these 3 shots are on these holes otherwise picking up the ball after 7 shots on a par 4 hole would result in a no score on that hole when the ball should've been pick up after 8 shots on a par 4.
