Only 8 players on Saturday but no thunder & lightning - just a little light rain!  

FRANK TANNER played his usual steady round and won Back 9 and Overall only just missing out by 1pt to MALCOLM SHEPHERD who took the Front 9.  ONE '2' on the 7th for MIKE MILLER and only inches from being a hole in one!!

 Result table 24 July.pdf

* * * * * 

Hot and sunny today but with a lovely breeze to make in enjoyable!!  Our rollover on 2's was eventually won by BARRY FARLEY with the only 2 of the day on the 14th, well done!!  The back 9 was won on countback by DAVE LYONS (6pts) from Paul Westbrook (4pts) - this went to appeal because it was alleged Dave persuaded Paul to take his driver on the 17th tee resulting in an out-of-bounds and "nil points" however, it was ruled that Paul is actually old enough to make his own decisions and so the result stands ....

An outstanding front 9 of 24 and an overall of 42 pts was shot by MIKE MILLER - obviously getting his eye in for the upcoming CAPTAIN'S CHARITY DAY on Wednesday 28th July (all welcome, please sign up online) ...

Results:  Result 17 July.pdf

NEXT WEEK:  Roll up as usual for 11.52 first tee - again, depending on numbers, we will try to play a team comp if possible.  

* * * * *

A small group last weekend - but we were lucky that we escaped the rain.  Here are the results - an unprecedented achievement by STUART ATKINSON who actually ended the round with the same ball he started with!!

 Result table 10 July 2021.pdf

Roll up tomorrow at the Club - depending on numbers we can either play a team competition of 3-2-1 Waltz (no you don't have to dance with your partners .... 1st Tee all 3 stableford scores count, 2nd tee 2 best scores count, 3rd tee best score only counts .... repeat) OR we can play as normal.  We can decide in the morning.  

HEAT WARNING for tomorrow!!!

* * * * *

A great day yesterday with the weather and also the format was hugely enjoyable.  Teams results were so close and the results - just 3 pts between the groups - were as follows:

1st Place: TEAM LYONS - Gross 60, NETT 53 pts

EQUAL 2nd Place:  TEAM BANNISTER and TEAM MAJOR - NETT 55 pts

(TEAM BANNISTER gross 61, TEAM MAJOR gross 64)

3rd Place: TEAM WESTBROOK - Gross 64, NETT 56 pts

NEXT WEEK:  Normal GODS plus CLUB MEDAL - If you wish to play next week then please just turn up at the usual time at the Club and check in with Keith Hardman (Dianne is away next Saturday).  Draw will be done on the day and the usual first tee time is 11.52 am.

SATURDAY 26TH JUNE - TEXAS SCRAMBLE!!


There are 4 teams of 3 for tomorrow's Scramble as follows:

Team Lyons:  Dave Lyons/Mike Miller/Keith Hardman.  Tee time: 11.52.  Team handicap: 7

Team Major:  Derek Major/Lawrence Rowe/Mona Butler.  Tee time:  12.00.  Team handicap: 9

Team Westbrook:  Paul Westbrook/Chris Robaczynski/Dianne McIntyre.  Tee time: 12.07.  Team handicap: 8

Team Bannister:  Luke Bannister/Barry Farley/Malcolm Sheppard.  Tee time: 12.15.  Team handicap: 6

Men off Orange, Ladies off Purple.  FIVE Tee shots to be taken by each player and marked on card.  Other normal Texas scramble rules apply.  Cards have been prepared together with handicap/score adjustment calculation sheets for your information:)

* * * * * 

 

Lucky with the weather today (after yesterday's downpour)!  An unusually quiet day considering we had 14 players ... in fact, generally quite a well-behaved bunch compared to normal.  


Tremendous golf
from our most senior GOD at 89 years-old - FRANK TANNER who won Front 9 and took half share of the rollover with a 2 on the 7th!!  KEITH HARDMAN took the other half share with a 2 on the 16th - well done to both!  Dark horse CHRIS (ROBBO) ROBACZYNSKI (who has obviously been having lessons in the several weeks we haven't seen him) won Back 9 and Overall.  Great scoring by all 3 players.

ANOTHER REMINDER PLEASE ... Trying to organise a Texas Scramble for next week but I need to know, preferably by Wednesday latest, if you wish to play because I need the correct team numbers and also need to draw the teams to balance out handicaps.  Thanks!!

Here are today's results:

Result table 19 June.pdf

 * * * * *

Just a quick reminder - meet around 11.15 for draw. ALL PLAYERS OFF PURPLE, normal Stableford. BEWARE  and check stroke indexes for each hole.  Ist tee at 11.52 as usual.  The course may be wet after today but forecast looks better for tomorrow, fingers crossed.

And for those of you who missed it on FB, here is the latest tribute from our very own golfing poet laureate, 

Mr Paul Westbrook :

What a lovely day we had on Saturday for our GODS.  Nice to see Luke back (although he was only back in body and not performance for the first 2 holes)!!  Typical Brits, there were complaints about the heat by the end of the round ...

BY POPULAR DEMAND we will all be playing off the PURPLE TEES next week.  

Looking ahead TEAM TEXAS SCRAMBLE 26TH JUNE 2021.  This will be 3-balls and so it will have to be on a first come-first served basis as we need the correct numbers.  Please let me know asap if you want to play so we have time to "scramble" around to make up the right number for the teams.

Here are Saturday's results ...

GODS and CLUB STABLEFORD Saturday 12th June


Draw will be done at the Club in the morning - see you all around 11.20 - first tee time 11.52 am.

 

* * * * *

A lovely sunny day for GODS with some already complaining about the heat!! 

Have to say there were 2 outstanding rounds and otherwise a lot of average golf!  Medal day as well which no doubt put the pressure on ... WELL DONE PAUL WESTBROOK (despite winding us up beforehand with tales of too much alcohol and not enough water) and "so close but not close enough" for BARRY FARLEY!!  

RESULTS BELOW: - next week it's CLUB STABLEFORD plus our normal Stableford.  

Anyone who didn't play Saturday - please contact me if you want to be in the draw for next week .

Result table 5 June.pdf

* * * * *

14 Players today enjoying the first good weather of the year!  However it was a mixed round again with not much consistency over both 9's.  A close call on the front 9 with Barry Farley taking the win by 1 point from Mona Butler.  A very steady round from Frank Tanner gave him both the back 9 and the overall win.  There were no 2's this week.  Next week the 2's will be on the 3rd/12th and it is also June CLUB MEDAL.  All GODS who didn't play today - please let me know soonest if you will be playing next week.

Nice to see a couple of new people playing GODS - Mona and Robert Butler ... a few people put off with the weather forecast today I think.  13 players, not great scoring but big WELL DONE to Lawrence who took the front and overall (front on countback from Toby).  A good back 9 from Mike after a not so glorious start ...

Only 10 players listed for Saturday 8th May and, because the weather forecast promises heavy rain, there is still doubt as to who will decide to go out!  


Because of this I have not done a draw but just listed the potential players.  I'll be at the Club before first tee time of 11.52 and I've made out individual cards so people can go out on a "first come first served" basis.  Worst case scenario, there's always a coffee!!  Below is the current list with amended handicaps from last week:

Dave Lyons 3.1 3
Barry Farley 17.6 14

Some good scoring today including  5 2's - Dave Lyons getting 2 of them  !!! 

Well played Malcolm for Front and Overall!  Mike just pipped Lawrence and Paul on countback for the back 9 win!  Cuts shown are "winner cuts" - handicaps will be reviewed accordingly and posted with next week's draw on Friday.

MAY DAY DRAW - Saturday 1st May 2021

Today will be standard STABLEFORD with Men off Orange and Ladies off Purple.  Following last weeks results, handicaps have now been reviewed in keeping with how it was always done in GODS in order that everyone has a fair and competitive opportunity.  So instead of the WHS (World) starting hdcp, there is now a GHS (GODS) starting hdcp.  So, depending on play, handicaps may change each week with additional cuts for "money winners".  Below is the draw PLEASE NOTE EARLIER FIRST TEE OFF:

  • Someone please tell Bazza that Covid rules' relaxation means he is now allowed to get a haircut
  • Paul needs to start putting his cards in for a review of his WHS (if only to pacify Bob)
  • Pain was felt with a return to Orange Tees ...

Well done to the winners - No 2's this week so there is a £15 rollover
