Committee Cup

The first Major of the season, The Committee Cup, will take place on Saturday 2nd May with tee times from 08:00.

Sign up sheet is on the notice board in the clubhouse.  Please get your name on by Friday 24th April as the draw for start times will take place on Friday evening.  If you can't get down to the club let one of the committee know before then and we can include you in the draw. 

Couple of changes from previous years:
This year the first 15 places will get Order of Merit points, with the winner getting 20 points.
For a trial period players with handicaps over 24 will play from their actual handicap instead of being limited to 24.

  Mid-week Medals and Stablefords
 
  The midweek medals and stablefords will be played from a choice of two tees for a trial period. This means that before you start your round you should choose whether you want to play from the white tees or from the yellow tees and indicate your choice on your score card.
 
  When you have completed your round you should enter your score on the computer by selecting the competition corresponding to the colour of the tees you chose to play. There will be two separate competitions listed on the computer - one for the yellow tees and one for the white tees.
 
  The two competitions will be combined to give an overall result that will be used for the allocation of prizes and order of merit points. Those players who selected to play off white tees will be given two extra shots to reflect the difference between the difficulty level of the two courses.
 
  The twos pot will be run as two separate pots - one for the white tees and one for the yellow tees.
 
  Please note that this does not apply to any competitions taking place on Saturdays and Sundays.

Men's Captain's Away Day
 
at
 
Bridlington Links
 

 
played Saturday 30th August
 The weather was pretty good for the cliff top east coast course, breezy as you would expect but beautifully sunny. The views over the bay were fantastic so plenty for everyone to admire even if their game of golf was not so perfect, many sampled the punishing rough if the wind blew their ball wide of the fairways .... so a few lost balls by some.
 The company and banter was as good as ever making it an enjoyable day for all 28 players and the beer was flowing après-golf so no doubt a few muzzy heads the following morning.
 The groups played am/am format (2 best from 4) for their team score but also each played for their own individual stableford score.
 Congratulations to Barry Jenkins, winning the overall individual trophy with a score of 37pts and to the team winners with a score of 88pts, the buggy duo Ian Scadding and Ian Sutherland along with Brian Eccles and Mike Ward....well done!
 Also a mention for The Captain's special prize of a bag of scavenged tees and a pack of recycled balls (probably collected from the rough on the way round) went to Simon Pratt who was still smiling after his round having just pipped Gavin for last place.
 A big thanks for all who went on the trip making it a successful great fun day.
