Captain's Day For Juniors'
Overcast skies and cool temperatures greeted the entrants in this major competition at Birchall on Saturday 25th June. 19 Juniors were playing for the Captain's Prize.
Jack Bourne, playing off a handicap of 10, amassed 42 points to take the Captains prize.
The Division 1 prize was won by Harry Thompson with 38 points.
The Division 2 prize was won by Greg Lilley with a score of 39points. In his round Greg scored a gross birdie on the 6th hole which with his handicap gave him 5 points.
All three winners reduced their playing handicaps by at least one shot as a result of their Stableford scores.
Jake Willshaw recorded his third consecutive win in the 10 hole competition with a nett score equal to par.
Following the golf all players joined the Captain Tony Brindley for lunch which was followed by the presentation of prizes to the winners and everyone who played was given a momento of the day.
Full results are on the Junior Noticeboard in the clubhouse.
June Medal June 11th
A bright but cool morning awaited the entrants to the latest Junior competition in 2011.
Young Manton Tudor-Jackson was in fine form and he took first place with a nett 64 which resulted in a handicap reduction of 2 shots. He pushed his brother Harrison into second place with 68 nett which was matched by Jack Bourne playing off a handicap of 10.
It was a similar situation in the ten hole competition which was won by Jake Willshaw who left brother Tom trailing in second place.
The CSS at 70 reflects the continuing improvement in the Junior Section and all players are to be congratulated on their performances.
Full results are on the Junior noticeboard in the Clubhouse.
Grenville Freeman Trophy
The bright and sunny weather tempted more than twenty juniors to compete for the Grenville Freeman Trophy on Saturday 4th June.
The greens were slick and the fairways hard which suited Dean Tatlow who returned a stableford score of 42 points. This must rank as Dean's favourite trophy with 2 wins and a 2nd place in the last three years. Harry Fearn with 39 points just edged out Jack Bourne who scored 38.
In the 10 hole competition Jake Willshaw recorded his first win of the summer with a one stroke victory over James Sharratt.
Next week (11th June) the competition is the June Medal followed two weeks later by the Captain's Day for Juniors. The golfers are all invited to join the Captain for lunch, which is followed by the prize presentation.
Well done to all the winners and those who reduced their handicaps.
