Captain’s Day for Juniors was blessed with the rarity of a rain free day. 18 juniors competed for the Captain’s Prize, Divisional Awards, Nearest the Pin, and Putting competition, generously provided by the Captain, Peter Mottram, and supported by the Vice-Captain, Dave Gallimore and Dave’s wife Jackie.
With the course in excellent condition, scoring proved difficult, and any score of 30 points or over was very creditable. There were, however, two exceptions. For most competitions, James Davies’ score of 41 points would be pushing for the winner’s enclosure. His card included a 2 on the 11th and could have been better had it not been for a “blob” on the 14th – but still an excellent performance. However the Junior Section has now upgraded the golfing term “bandit”, to the word “super-bandit”. James Holland recorded an amazing 49 points, including two holes where only 1 point was recorded. The highlight of the round was a sequence of GROSS par scores on ALL the Par 3 holes – 4th, 7th, 9th, 11th, 13th.
The full list of prize winners is listed below, and all should be congratulated. The list of prizes included two additions, organised by the Vice-Captain: 10 holes of golf with the Club Champion, Ian Curley; and a 4BBB match over 10 holes with two members of the Club’s League 1st Team. Hopefully the juniors winning these prizes will gain the benefit if playing with some of the best players in the Club.
The Captain hosted a meal for all competitors, after which he awarded the competition prizes, assisted by junior committee members Alan Tipping and Jake Scragg.
