 Information

The November Tiger Trophy took place on a shortened course just two days prior to the Covid-19 November Lock Down.   The new World Handicap System was deployed at Folke for the very first time although the event was a non-qualifier. The top four players all finished with 39 points  and the winner on countback was Peter Gibson..  Doug Butler was second and the current  OOM leader Darren Priddle was third.  Darren is now the 2020 Tiger Trophy Champion. The next Tiger Trophy is scheduled for  Tuesday 1 December but  will have to  be rescheduled (or cancelled) due to the lock down. Watch this page for confirmation  of post lock-down events.  Detailed scores are shown on the Results Page

The Tiger Trophy is sponsored by Stalbridge Linen

COUNTY CARD TROPHY

The County Card Trophy competition took place at Long Sutton Golf Course on Thursday 22 October.  The event, organised by the previous winner Tony Smith, was played in lovely Autumn sunshine on the course that had clearly benefited from recent drainage works. The club house hospitality (and bacon rolls) were excellent in spite of the Covid-19 precautions and the hilly course and sloping greens provided a different challenge from our home course. Back in the club house after the round, the scores were counted and the overall winner was Phil Chant with 34 points. Tony Smith was second with 32 points and the winning team was Tony, Mike and Bill. Big thank-you to Tony and Terry for organising the day and to Long Sutton Golf Course for their  excellent hospitality.  

The November CCT will take place at Ashley Wood on Tuesday 17 November. The first tee is 10:50 am and the cost is £25 + £3 prize money, which includes a full English breakfast. Please contact Terry Cotton if you would like to play in this match.


Thursday Medal- 15 October

Yet another big turnout for the October Thursday medal competition on the course that was decked out in its finest Autumn livery in  bright sunshine.  Kevin Ring was the winner on the day by a 6 shot margin but the rest of the field was very close with only 8 shots dividing the next sixteen players.  Doug Butler and Sid Fox were second and third on countback from five players all on 74.  (See the results page for all the details) Kevin is now the overall leader with 6 points - 1 point clear of Phil Chant and 2 points clear of a three way tie for third. Thanks once again to Terry for organising the event and to the Centre for doing their utmost to keep things going in these difficult times.

Breakfast Stableford - 20 October

This is one of the favourite competitions where the focus is generally on what happens off the course more than on it!  The typical Autumn day with a lively breeze made for an interesting round of golf. But is was our wily Scotsman Jim that when fortified with a full English breakfast   managed to get nineteen points on the back nine to go with his 20 on the front. Darren was second with 38 and veteran knockout winner Richard was third with 37. A big thank you to Steve Harris and Lisa for the superb breakfast  and the usual Centre hospitality in accordance with the Covid-19 procedures.
