Knighton Trophy 2019 – Results

Knighton Trophy 13th August 2019

Fifty eight players were scheduled to play this year, however due to injury and personal circumstances this was reduced to fifty six which meant unavoidable changes to the running order.

Thanks goes to Bill Baker for the organisation, which, after the initial hiccups progressed smoothly.

Roll Up Report – 4th June 2019

Seniors roll up 4th June 2019

39 members turned up this week playing “shambles” which appeared to be well received, I understand that Brian Stepney had two chauffeurs driving him around the course until the 17th when he had to take the matter into his own hands when they both went off course!

Seniors Open

All members who intend playing this year must ensure that payment has been made by no later than June 16th so that the draw can be made and communicated to all participants.

If anyone wishes to sponsor one of the holes please let Brian Reid know a.s.a.p.

We would also like some raffle prizes donated to help raise funds for our chosen charity this year.

Roll Up Report – 30th April 2019

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”.

for example

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

Score 5.5

If playing a par three hole when all scores count

Player 1 scores  3,

Player  2 scores 2

 Ghost           scores 2.5

                       Score   7.5

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.
