  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.

 Gavin aces 319yrd par four 15th!
  

 
Gavin McAuley has always been a big hitter, on many occasions he has amazed his fellow golfers with the accuracy and distance achieved off the tee. During the recent Texas scramble he went to the ultimate step by holing his tee shot at the par four 15th hole.

He hit a fade over the trees and towards the green, along with his fellow golfers they watched as it bounce on the green and run towards the hole, not sure whether it had rolled over the hole or dropped in Gavin checked with his range finder, he couldn't see anything, no sign of the ball! he walked to the green a little giddy with the prospect of the ace and sure enough the ball had gone in, wow!

Gavin's first hole-in-one may have cost him a bottle of whisky in the clubhouse to celebrate the ace albatross but it also helped his team to 3rd place in the Texas Scramble and gave him a dream like memory of the perfect shot to remember in the future.
