Course Open

The annual Family Foursomes competition was played on Sunday 20th June over 9 and 18 holes. Despite earlier forecasts for rain the weather stayed dry with some very nice and warm sunshine and a mild east to north easterly wind.

In the 18 hole Greensome Stableford Competition 11 cards were taken out.        Mainly due to injuries and illness, three pairings had withdrawn and despite several requests for including a limited number of family guests it had been decided to keep this year’s competition for members only. It was nice to see some newer members taking part in the competition for the first time.

Both competitions were keenly contested with some excellent scoring resulting in the brother and sister pairing of Adam & Ellie Curd winning the Family Foursomes trophy and first prize with 40 points and Ian and Sahana Fisher finishing a close second with 39 points. Only one player, Maureen Higham, managed to find the 17th green with her tee shot so she won the prize for nearest the pin.

In the 9 hole Foursomes Stableford competition aimed at high handicap junior players playing with adult family members three pairings took part. Dylan and Paul Carr returned a high score of 21 points to win first prize. Dylan managed to put his drive virtually on the line to also win the prize for Nearest the line on the 9th hole.

The Prize presentation was held on the balcony and the Lady Captain, Jane Hughes presented the prizes to the winners. Some other family guests also came to support the prize presentation and enjoy a family lunch at the club to celebrate Father’s Day.
