Mixed Paget Trophies Sunday 9 September 2018
Having dodged the rain the day before, the course was damp and the wind made the course challenging. Of the twelve pairs who set out from midday, it was Andy de Wet and Hayley Smith who capitalised on the Betterball Stableford format to attain an exceptional 44 points. Hayley in particular, had a phenomenal day's golf. Runners up were Mick and Jo Barradell who returned an equally impressive 41 points. Thanks to everyone who took part.
Mixed Match Update
Mixed v Charnwood (Away) Sunday 13 May 2018
Six teams were met with blue skies and a northerly breeze on the Forest slopes. A thoroughly enjoyable day's golf in good company was had by all, rounded off with an excellent carvery. Seems only fair that with such hospitality we would allow the hosts a win...5-1 was possibly a shade too generous!
Mixed v Rushcliffe Sunday 6 May 2018
With the course displayed at its very best in the excellent bank holiday weather, compliments flowed from the away team. For the home team is was a pleasure to welcome new members Becky & Ricky Wood and also Wayne Partridge who partnered Hayley Smith on the day. The 3-3 draw seemed a fitting end to a fine day's golf accompanied by an excellent meal provided by Paul and his staff.
Mixed v Stanton (Away) - Sunday 29 April 2018
Despite a chilly wind, the course played well and the greens were receptive. Without doubt, no one left feeling hungry after the ample main followed by vast pudding! A disappointing 4 1/2 to 3 1/2 defeat as the matches were friendly yet hard fought. Thanks to all who played on the day....we always have the return next year!

The initial qualifying comp for this has been moved to Sunday 22nd April for 2018 in order for the match play rounds to take place in warmer climes (we hope). Please add your names to the sheet which is now up on the Mixed Comps Board.
Paget Trophies - Sunday 10 September 2017
There was a great turnout of 12 pairs all of whom were hoping not to get too wet in the cool, blustery weather. Weather aside, Chris and Rachel Miller managed to win for a second consecutive year with a strong 42 points from Andy and Tina Rumming on 40 points and Mick and Joanne Barradell on 38 points. Thanks to everyone who played to make the day a really enjoyable event for all. Thanks also to Paul and his team for the provision of lovely food on our arrival in the clubhouse.
