November County Card Trophy

The November CCT was held at Wells Golf Course on Thurs 23 Nov. After a night of very heavy rain 14 seniors (plus Ned’s minder - Bob from Cornwall) assembled for the usual pre-match warm up preparations (Bacon Rolls and coffee). Ned led off the teams with a well struck drive out of bounds. This did not matter much because due to the muddy conditions it was almost impossible to find your ball even if it landed on the fairway and a great deal of effort was spent by most team members searching for their elusive balls. This feature of the days play was clearly reflected in the scores except for the in-form Ian Tinsley who maintained his current run of success  with a magnificent 34 points - 5 points clear of nearest rivals Peter Gibson and Paul Fletcher.

2018

Best 3 From 5 Competition

For this competition, the winner was the player with the highest total of points from their best three stableford scores played over five Tuesday competitions.  The final round was played in parallel with the Senior Christmas Stableford on 19 December. (See the report below). Peter Gibson had the highest  score on the day but the overall competition was won by Mike Weston with 117 points. In second place was Terry Cotton (111) and Geoff Bannister was third with 109 points

Our Christmas Stableford took place on a morning that started off  white and crispy but quickly turned a lush green in the warm winter sunshine. Twenty six seniors, guests and some younger seniors in training set out with the thought of another delicious Christmas Lunch awaiting them in the club house. When all the cards were submitted our treasurer Stuart did the maths for the stableford and the Best 3 of 5 (See panel above) competitions and the winner was  Peter Gibson with 39 points. Andrew Palmer (who had a major change of fortune after winning the wooden spoon  in the Club Xmas stableford 3 days earlier).was second with 38. Mike Weston finished his 2017  captaincy with third place on countback from Geoff Bannister.  (See the results page for full details.)


After extracting more money for the BHF from the unwary golfers, Club Captain Terry Cotton thanked Mike Weston, Steve, Andy and the centre staff for their efforts throughout the year and for another great day at Folke


Merry Christmas and  Happy New Year to all.

The Team Prize was won by Team 1 - Ian, Richard Robinson and Ned. This was a popular choice of CCT venue but the stiff cold breeze and the course conditions proved to be a difficult challenge for this visit. Big thank-you to Peter for organising the event and congratulations to Ian and the winning team.
