Hello Golfers.

The Saturday and Sunday competition was Par on 25 & 26 May – There were no entries on Saturday, but Sunday saw a turnout of 26 players. Malcolm Bridge was 1st on 3, Chris Ranish 2nd on a countback from 3rd Derek Stephens both with 2. And Derek won the Birds Nest with Twos on #8 and #16 😊 Other Twos were David Stevenson on #12 and Dayle Scrimshaw on #16.

This weekend the Saturday and Sunday comp is Medal/Putting and Shoot Out Rounds 9 & 10 on 1 & 2 June.

18-hole ladies Results from Wednesday 22 May – A hardy 10 players braved the weather last Wednesday, 8 of them were playing matches but also putted out to be in the Home Pennants competition.

Results 1st Nicola Warren with 36 stableford points, 2nd Jo-Anne Loe with 35 and 3rd was Sarah Monaghan with 31. There was no closest to the pin, but 3 players scored a 2 – Emily Loughnan and Felicity Warren on #8 and Jo-Anne Loe on #12.

The last rounds of the Riverside Cup and Tilson Salver were played on Friday & Sunday, respectively. Jo-Anne Loe had a win in the Riverside and Emily Loughnan had a half.  Sadly, this year we didn’t get the wins we needed in both competitions.  The opposition was tough and our lower than usual handicaps didn’t help. Nicola would particularly like to thank the following players who represented us with great sportsmanship … it’s no mean feat to be available for all these games, to travel, play and be wonderful teammates. The players with the most wins were Emily Loughnan with 3 ½ wins (and was away for some), followed by Nicola Warren with 3. Karen Shaw played the most games, playing all Riverside and Tilson Games, followed by Nicola Warren. Jo-Anne and Alison Tipler played 4 games in total. Honor Clark, Sarah Monaghan, Sandra Petersen, and Kris Mason played 3 games, and Jane Terpstra, Venetia Morison, Juliana Allen, Angela Busby, and Felicity Warren were able to play a game. Thank you all for supporting Nicola in putting these teams forward and for being prompt with a yes or no for availability. Sandra’s response is always I’m here if you need! This is so appreciated. Sometimes, the courses do not suit the long hitters, or the handicap differentials are too great. (Nicola Warren)

Grumpies – Results from the Stableford round on Tuesday 21 May – A handful of brave souls turned up, but the rain was the winner on the day.

Thursday Club – Stableford results from Thursday 23 May – 1st Shayne Hammond 41, 2nd Shane Hislop 40, 3rd = Alistair Petrie and Johnny Gray 38, 5th = Bevan Sweeney, Jason Shaw, and Chris Ranish 36.
