Seniors Roll up Tuesday 7th May 2019
45 members turned up this week playing “Yellow Ball Killer” from the comments made following the game it appeared to be well received, although the curse of the Seniors struck again when a certain player picked their ball up with a shot left and was also the yellow ball player!

A signup sheet for the Captains cup is also on the notice board, monies will be collected from next Tuesday.

Seniors Roll up Tuesday 30th April 2019
52 members turned up this week playing 2s & 3s, with this number of players it meant that two pairs were offered the option to either play individual stableford or use the calculation of a “ghost” player, the latter was chosen.
To explain how this calculation works;
The joint score of the pair is divided by two, this then provides the mean average which becomes the score of the “ghost”.
Player 1 scores 3 points
Player 2 scores 2 points
Ghost allocated 3 + 2 = 5 divided by 2 = 2.5
On par 4s and 5s The two best scores count therefore
Player 1 scores 3
Ghost scores 2.5
If playing a par three hole when all scores count
Player 1 scores 3,
Player 2 scores 2
Ghost scores 2.5
When scoring the actual figure scored is entered and is not to be rounded up on each hole.
We move onto hole #4 next week.
1st B Mace, I Bensted, C Howard 102
2nd R Tucker, G Westerhof 98 c/b
3rd L Waters, A Wilkins B Bunning 98
Seniors Roll up Tuesday 23rd April 2019
46 members turned up this week playing in the first of 2019s Division 1 & Casual cups.
Unfortunately one member refused to enter his results into the system following the game this week, this is a requirement going forward and refusal by any individual may result in a ban on taking part in future competitions when system entry is required.
Thanks go to Bob Howard for organising what was an enjoyable day, we almost managed to avoid the rain although some avoided it more than others, the greens were in excellent condition and proved to what can only be described as challenging, the results were
First Peter Ellen
Second Roger Bates
Third Glyn Williams
Nearest the pin Richard Tucker
Longest Drive Brian Reid
Congratulations to Roger Bates on getting the BorB this week, I can confirm that it was an impressive bunker shot which rolled straight into the centre of the cup.
Next week is hole # 17

Seniors Roll up Tuesday 2nd April 2019
40 members turned up this week playing individual stableford, we were not quite sure how many finished because although we had some cards marked N/R we were three short overall. Not handing in cards results in a delay in determining the winners, it is the responsibility of all players to ensure that cards are made readily available at the end of the game.
Please ensure that all monies due are now paid by no later than Tuesday 9th of April
The necessary register is now in place in the Pro shop, should anyone who hasn’t registered to play and now wishes to take part in this competition must ensure that they inform Bill Baker beforehand so that the register can be updated.
There is a possibility of a home game against the Academy on Thursday April 25th this is additional to the published matches, should anyone wish to take part please inform Richard Tucker by no later than Friday April 12th.
With the number of N/R cards this week I thought it important to make it known that if in the future a round is not completed then any claim for the BorB will not be valid.
The BorB still remains elusive although Keith Arlott did chip in for a birdie this week! we now move onto hole number eight.
1st D Merrison 15 39
2nd R Maloney 17 35
3rd P Ellen 9 33
4th N Tomaszewski 18 32 c/b
1st K Arlott 28 46
2nd P Eltham 28 38
3rd C Curd 21 36
4th J Dixon 31 34
Individual stableford (Union Jack)
52 members turned up to play this week which meant that 48 played Texas scramble and, as the total number of players wasn’t divisible by 3, 4 members played individual stableford.
There is a list of members on the website showing those who have and who have yet to pay.
With competitions about to start it is the responsibility of individuals to ensure that the games are played in a timely manner which has been mutually agreed.
The BorB moves onto hole number six
Ian Bensted h/c 29 points 39
1st R Bates, M Evans, P Figgins 4.9 63.1
2nd B Howard, S Sands, P Wright 6.6 64
3rd B Baker, T Clark, R Belcher 6.0 65.3
In a match between A and B, Player B without A’s authority, marked the position of A’s ball on the putting green and lifted it. Player B is subject to penalty.
B – FALSE
Answer will be given at the end of the month
