The Pam Clarke cup had a strong amount of entrants with 17 players meeting together to complete 18 holes of stableford golf. This club 'major' event finished with 10 the top 11 players all having handicaps which were 19 or better.
This years event followed a similar pattern to some of the last few major events being decided by a count back, 37 points was the winning score which was shared between Clive Mansfield and Jason Kotowski. It was won by Clive who managed 20 points on the back 9 holes compared with Jason's 19 points.
Well done Clive Mansfield!
Another new event for the 2018 calendar which is sponsored by the PGA and Lombard (specialists in vehicle finance) and a event which carries a potentially huge prize!
The winner of this event not only claims the days prize money but also books themselves a place to play with Head PGA Professional, Mark Richecoeur in a 4 Ball Better Ball format at Camberley Heath Golf Club in the Regional Final. If victorious at this event both Mark and the winner will book themselves a trip to Portugal to play in the Finals in September this year.
This event saw 13 players enter and only 2 players competing for the top spot. Alex Body claimed 2nd spot with 37 points seeing the Men's Club Champion missing out on count back to the winner Paul Williams who also carded a score of 37 points.
Paul was thrilled to have won this event and looks forward to the company of Mark Richecoeur as they both look forward to trying to clinch the top spot on 12th June at Camberley Heath.
Well done Paul Williams!
A new club fixture which will become a club 'major' event in future years. Played over 18 Holes from the white & red plates this Medal competition was played this year on a unusually wet golf course for the time of year. This however didn't stop the majority of the lower handicappers who mostly carded a score very close to or if not to their handicap.
The top 3 players were only separated by a count back decision as their net scores were all shared on a respectable level par (70). Ben John came overall 3rd losing out to 2nd place winner John Paul-Watterson. However it was the clubs youngest active competition player Alex Body (also current Gross Club Champion) who claimed the days title. Alex carded a net 70 and won on count back.
Well done Alex a great score in testing conditions.
The annual Short Game Golf Academy Par 3 Masters Competition took place on Wednesday 5th April and with testing windy and wet conditions some wonderful scores were had.
This years men's winner Mike Nowjee equaled the competition course record of 27 (level par) beating 2 players who carded a 28 (+1) and claiming second spot. They were Clive Mansfield and Charlie Summers.
The ladies division was won with a very respectable score of 29 (+2) and was won by Ingrid Deane-Williams who beat Brigitte Lockwood by one shot who carded a 30 (+3).
In testing conditions this year and a difficult course set up these winning scores were excellent and each of the winners (Mike Nowjee and Ingrid Deane Williams) have earned themselves a fantastic prize of 2 x 30 minute golf lessons with any of the Short Game Golf Academy instructors, 1 years SGGA Practice Club Membership to hone their short game skills further and also 1 dozen Srixon Golf Balls.
Thank you to all of the 31 players who participated - a video covering some highlights is being put together and will be shared very soon.
