 Information

With the Tiger Trophy champion  already defined, the final round took place on Tuesday 8 December. The overnight frost was beginning to melt away as the first of the field of 24 tee’d off but the fairways were playing long in the chilly winter air that kept the scores in check.- with the exception, of course, of the winner on the day - Phil Chant - who scored an amazing 41 points. Mike Clarke was second with 36 points, and Reg Whitelock was third with 34. Congratulations to these winners and also to Darren Priddle, the overall champion. Mark Maguire and  Stephen Taylor tied for second overall. Thanks to Andy and Steve  for a very enjoyable day and for what is now  the latest Folke tradition- bacon rolls after the first nine! Detailed scores are shown on the Results Page

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.

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.

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 next CCT will be defined as soon as conditions allow.
