President's Week

The fine weather continued as President Arthur Plater enjoyed greeting members in the Halfway House to celebrate his week of Presidents' Competitions. 

President's Day for Ladies
More baked fairways but damp, slower greens early on due to morning dew. Congratulations to Carol Lane who posted an incredible 45 points to take first place. Pat Mountford and Alison Seddon were second and third respectively with an equally impressive 40 points, followed by Gilly Higgins who secured another great score of 39 points.

Nearest the pin on the 1st, 5th and 15th were Viv Allcock, Jayne Harris and Sue Roberts, and Doreen Horspool was nearest the pin in 2 on the 18th.  Finally, well done to Suzanne Pretty who amassed 29 points off scratch to take the prize for Best Gross.

Back in the clubhouse, there were huge thanks and compliments for the drinks, sandwiches and homemade cakes kindly provided by Club President, Arthur Plater.

Well done and thanks to all who took - or played a - part in the day.

President's Midweek 
Another fine day with the course looking great encouraged good scoring.  Clive Smith took the honours returning and impressive score of 43 points.  Alan Clarke was in the frame again in second place with 41 closely followed by Philip Appleby in third with 40 points.  The best gross score was Mark Lawrence with a fine 1 over par 73.  Nearest to the pin prizes were won by;  1st - Alan Clarke, 5th - Rob Hamilton, 15th - Dave Gould, and in 2 on 11th - Alan Gill.  Best Senior over 60 was Tony Cose with 39 points and best past Captain was Norman Ellis with 38.

Presidents Day
A full start sheet made for a long day for Arthur and helpers at the Halfway House.  The cooler conditions and a slightly softer course again encouraged good scoring with Nick Carter returning an excellent score of 41 points, closely followed by Kyle Bentley, also with 41 and dad, Steve Bentley with 40.   Best gross score was returned by Jon Siddons with a 4 under par score of 68.  Nearest to the pin prizes went to:  1st - Rob Smalley, 5th - Simon Whitaker ,15th - Andy Yeomans had a Hole in One!! and in 2 on 11th - Gaz Titterton.  Best Seniors prizes went to 55+ - Martin Downing, 65+ - Neil Harris, 75+ - Tony Watson and best Past Captain was Keith Hough.

Can you beat this...?  Geoff Allcock, Norman Ellis and Stuart Rackley all hit the green on the 5th hole and sunk their putts for three "twos".   That doesn't happen very often.....!        

Congratulations go to all the weeks' prize winners and thanks go to Arthur for his hospitality, the welcome  refreshments and all who helped to make the week a success!!
