Entry Request

The Tiger Trophy match took place on a fine sunny day with little or no excuses for golfing errors. The course was in great shape. The winner on the day was Mark Maguire with 42 points. Steve Taylor had 39 points  and Ian Tinsley was third with 37 points. Reg was unable to play due to injury and was further injured by a wasp sting on the lip! Darren Priddle remains in overall lead with 11 points from 5 players tied for second place on 3 points.

Let’s Keep Lisa Busy!!

On Captain’s Day we had a great BBQ after the match and it was good to see Lisa and Steve back creating their delicious food.  We need to keep ordering food during the week to keep Lisa busy in these difficult Corona Virus times so that things can continue as before when normality returns.



Please! Order your snack or lunch the day before you play!!

Winter K/O Entry

Summer K/O Status

Mother nature was very kind to us as we played our competition in glorious sunshine with three clubs and a putter - a novelty format that surprisingly enough didn’t seem to impact the usual level of scoring that was achieved!  Twenty two members took part but it was the in-form Ian Tinsley that came first once again with a very impressive 37 points. Captain Terry just pipped Kevin Ring to second place after countback. Big thank-you to Terry for organising the event  and the Centre for another great days golf at Folke.
