Club Championship Results
Congratulations to Simon Mead who retained his Club Champion title after a very eventful weekend.
Nearly 80 members took part in the Jack Hughes Trophy this weekend. A big thank you must go out to Alan Teece, Ken Kenyon, Tony Hammond, Christopher Ball, Greg Blanchard, Richard Osgood, Alison Salvadori, Irene Witts, Colin Sturgess, John Thorogood, Graham & Miwa Beer Paul Herd, David Ashworth, Keith Watson and Mike Lennon for giving up their free time to start, ball spot and record scores on both days and also Barry, James, Sam and Izzy from the Pro shop for the huge amount of help and support they provided throughout the event.
Praise for the Chris Ball and his team was in abundance throughout the weekend and the course was in fantastic condition but scoring was not easy and the course played its full length.
As mentioned earlier, the weather did try and disrupt Sunday afternoon and a delay of around 1 hour was needed before play could be resumed. Bar takings sky rocketed during the suspension with several players decided their scores were clearly non recoverable. Huge thank you to Jeff who coped incredibly well, particularly on day two, when he was on flying solo due to the ‘pingdemic’.
Simon Mead opened his scoring with a 75 on day one and added a superb second round 68 on Sunday for a total of 143 which was good enough to retain the Jack Hughes Trophy and the Club Champion title that he had won the previous year. It is also worth noting first round leader Bradley Hopkin who scored a superb 69 which was the best of the day.
The 4-9 Salver was won by Mark Bradford with two steady scores of 72 + 74 for a total of 146. Ian Alexander put two fantastic rounds of 78 & 76 together to edge out Chris Barlow in the battle for the 10-18 Salver. The Jack Hughes memorial trophy, for golfers over 55 years of age was also won by Mark Bradford
