On Saturday we completed the schedule of Junior competitions for 2019. Across the season it has been a pleasure to see the quality of golf achieved, the range of winners and the progress that everyone has made in improving their handicaps. And amidst all the season’s serious competitions, it was a delight to see so many of our juniors braving the challenge of playing with a parent/grandparent in the Super 6s!
The September Medal results are on the Junior Results Page. As ever, congratulations to the winners – Jake Reed, with a very impressive gross 34 off the yellow tees on holes 10-18, and Tom Bloomer (who had previously been left at the bus stop, literally, by Ian) with an equally impressive net 28 off the blue tees.
I hope that despite the competitions being completed I will continue to see you up playing some golf, as long as the weather allows.
I will be in touch in due course regarding the Golf Club Presentation Evening.
All the best
Valeria, Ian and Alwyn
An excellent result on Thursday – well done to everyone involved in the ‘thrashing’ of Gosforth 11-1 (or 5.5- 0.5 depending on your scoring method). This is particularly pleasing as, this year, we have won both the home and away matches. Thanks as usual to Neil, Ian and Christine for ensuring a very successful day. Also thanks to Cliff for stepping in at the last minute to ensure we were able to field a full team.
The next match is Thursday 19th September at home to Bellingham. I will distribute the start sheet soon – it will be fields of ten and I am expecting to have a full team.
After the Gosforth home match, the scores on the doors are:
Dennis Cousins: 13 pts
Peter Robinson: 9 pts
Cliff Dalton: 8 pts
Derek Todhunter: 8 pts
Jim Hall: 8 pts
Mike Metcalfe: 8 pts
Mark Kimberley: 5 pts
Robin Down: 5 pts
Mike Carter: 5 pts
Geoff Edwards: 4 pts
Gary Thomson: 4 pts
John Humble: 4 pts
Ray Wilson: 4 pts
Ian Crocker: 3 pts
Robin Makepeace: 2 pts
Ron Jamieson: 2 pts
Congratulations especially to Jake and Tom Clarke, our winners. Tom had a “storming” round and has had his handicap adjusted accordingly!
The next golfing events are the workshop on Wednesday, 28 August and the “Super Sixes” on Saturday, 31 August.
For the “Super Sixes” all Junior members are invited to team up with an adult family member to play a Greensomes over 6 holes.
Adults will be handicapped according to their experience!
I seem to remember that last year it was won by Sam and his Dad!
Please get your team together and let me know your availability.
And good luck to Daniel who is playing in the final Golf Tour fixture this weekend.
The results can be found on the Junior Results Page
