The 2020 Tiger Trophy competition kicked off on a damp and grey Tuesday morning, 7th January.  After several days of little rainfall  the greens were fast and the fairways only shortened on a few holes thanks to great work by Greenkeeper Andy.

 Winter K/O Competitions


The Club and Senior Winter Knockout pairings were drawn at the October Meeting and the pairings can be seen by clicking on the links below and are also shown  on the club Notice Board.

Presentation to Julia’s House

Thursday 9 January


On Thursday 9 January 2019 Senior Captain Peter presented the money from the charity activities over the year to representatives of Peter’s nominated charity - Julia’s House. The final total raised was £2252.05 plus the winnings from the Thursday Roll-Up kindly donated by the winner Mike Weston.



County Card Trophy


The Senior Christmas Stableford took place on Tuesday 17 December. The match was followed by a Christmas Lunch and  several activities aimed at raising money for the Senior Captain’s charity - Julia’s House.  After several days of  rain,  the golfers arrived during a period of  heavy drizzle and fog  but due to the valiant efforts of Greenkeeper Andy, the course was open albeit with some shortened holes.  Seven groups of three players eventually set out  to take on the challenge. The drizzle and mist dispersed as the groups worked their way around the course and then back to the clubhouse for refreshments and the much awaited Christmas Lunch. After the delicious meal and the usual banter the draw was done and several items auctioned and Captain Peter declared that the total raised for Julia’s House was now well in excess of £2000 - a great achievement. He thanked everyone for their support during the year and wished the 2020 Captain George every success. The winner of the Stableford was Doug Butler with 44 points. Richard Robinson was second and a two way tie for third place. Several other presentations were made as shown below. Well done Peter for a great year as Senior Captain, and a  big thank-you to Steve, Lisa, Andy, Jack and Betty for another cracking senior day at Folke.

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.



The plan was to get into the Christmas spirit with a nine hole, 3 club and putter, stableford and then dash off to the Digby Tap for lunch. Thanks to the weather, it was more like a Digby Splash - with the stableford cancelled and replaced by several rounds of  Killer Pool in the Clubhouse.  The visit to the Digby Tap went very well and there was plenty of Christmas Cheer( and runny eggs)  to be had. A big thank you to Ian for organising this now  well established senior tradition.

The Digby Dash

 

23 Jan at Folke

In accordance with tradition,  the first 2020  CCT will take place at Folke on Thursday 23 January. There will be a Lisa Special lunch and the cost will be £10 plus prizes. First tee will be 9:00 am and the Entry Sheet is on the Notice Board.
