Junior Prizegiving
Last Friday evening was the annual Junior prizegiving with over 120 prizes being presented to our up and coming stars of the future! The evening was hosted and organised by Peter Money and Mark Crouch. There were in excess of one hundred people in attendance to celebrate our Junior Section’s successes! Peter thanked all those who had supported the Junior Section throughout the year and went on to present the prizes, along with our Captains Paul Smale and Viv Worthington.

A special presentation was made to Harrison Greenberry from the Captain of Burnham and Berrow, the venue of the British Boys’ Championship, Rick Metcalfe. This was followed by our Chairman, Geoff Bush, presenting Harri with honorary life membership of the Golf Section, in recognition of his magnificent achievement.

Pro’s Stableford
With no scheduled competition last weekend, we decided to organise a roll-up Stableford event for Saturday 12th. The course was presented in great condition, which seems to be a recurring theme this season, and many thanks to John and his team for providing us with a fantastic golf course.

In Division 1, Jimmy Heal grabbed himself first place with the only score under par with 37 points. In second place was Andy Knight, who had a ‘cliche’ game of two halves. With 23 points on the front nine, surely Andy would have backed himself to take the win? Finishing with 36 points secured second spot. Third place was taken by Shaun Greenaway, who finished with 35 points – a very popular score for the day.

In second spot was Dave Leverton with a score of 35 points and completing the prizes was Kevin Phillips on 34 points.

There were only 8 two’s on the day, resulting in £11.50 per person per two. Well done to all!

Hole-in-one
Congratulations to Janet Milford who achieved her first hole-in-one, on the 6th hole, in last week’s team Stableford. Janet was over the moon at this tremendous achievement. Well done, Janet – maybe this will be the first of many for you!
