Breakfast Stableford - Tuesday 22 October


The day dawned misty and murky as the seniors arrived for one of the favourite competitions of the year. This involves 9 holes of golf, then a Lisa special buffet breakfast, and then they stagger round over the back nine holes. This is an event that Doug has been practising for some time and his preparations nearly paid off but, after getting bogged down on the 18th hole bunker,  he was pipped on countback by Stuart Beardsley, both having 36 points. George Taylor  was third with 34 points (with a little bit of help from Sid Fox?). Big thank you to Lisa, Steve and the Centre staff for the lovely breakfast and hospitality.

Double Bother Trophy


The Double Bother Trophy Match is a blind pairs stableford that is played in remembrance of the golfers who are no longer with us. This year’s event was played on October 29 which turn out to be a very grey day with a strong  cold North Easterly wind. Eighteen golfers completed the 18 hole stableford and Senior Captain Peter did the pairs draw once everyone had made it back to the clubhouse.


Mike Burt was the top scorer with 37 points but finished up in second place after countback with partner Sid Fox. The overall winning pair was Terry Cotton and Richard Robinson with a 64 point total. The individual and pairs scores are shown in the Table.



Current Leader - Terry

To get into the Christmas spirit, the Seniors are invited to play a nine hole, 3 club and putter, stableford and then dash off to the Digby Tap for lunch.

This year, the event will be on December 12, tee off at 9:30 and lunch at 12:30 pm.  The Entry Sheet is on the Notice Board and places are limited to 14 max.

Round 4 of the   Best 3 from 5 stableford is complete. George Taylor had a blistering 43 point round, 11  points ahead of the field. Seven players toted for second place, all on 32 points, but it was Doug and Jim that won second and third place honours on countback.  Overall, Terry has crept into the top spot just two points clear of Ned but it is all to to play for in the final round with only 5 points between first and fifth. For the detailed results of the latest round  and overall cumulative scores see the Results Page
