Winter golf ... NOT !!!

In case any of you were wondering why there is not much news about golf at Newbury at the moment ... see pictures below. We're praying for a thaw next week so that the Wendy Seymour Texas Scramble can take place on Tuesday. Will keep you informed. At least the greens (sorry whites) are very receptive !!!!

For info, the range and Pro-Shop are still open.

Merry Christmas

December Weekday Stableford

The final weekday Stableford of the year was played on Thu/Fri 16th/17th December by a small field of 11 players before the snow arrived. Even without the snow, conditions were tough which reflected in the scores. This is where the Pro's came into their own !!!
The winner with 35 points was our head professional Nick Mitchell. One point behind, and getting back to serious golf for the new year was runner-up Dan Seymour our touring professional. He was closely followed by Matthew Scapplehorn and Steve Bonner on the same score beaten on count-back. Two points further back was the consistent John Day.

Turkey Trot

This competition seems to be doomed !!!! For the second year running it could not be played because of the weather. Rather than try to re-schedule it (as we did twice last year without success), the committee decided that if it could not be played on the day, there would be a draw for the prizes from all the entrants. The draw was made by Chris Moore, Jon Miller and John Taylor and the results are as follows:

£45 D Glover
£30 P Tebbutt
£20 J Allum
£15 M Richardson
£9 B Heath
£8 S Soanes
£7 M Nicholls
£6 K Richardson
£5 S Bonner
£5 S Briginshaw
£5 J Purvis
£5 C Adlem
£5 T Glover

Well played all the prize winners !!!
Please collect your vouchers from the Treasurer.

December Seniors Medal

The December Seniors Medal was played yesterday in cold conditions with a stiff north-easterly to test all the players. The expected rain did not arrive until quite late, so most players were lucky and missed it. Not so lucky for the last couple of groups who were bombarded with a heavy hail storm!!
Thirty-one players competed for the medals this month and as there were only three ladies competing, there was no separate ladies medal. The medal was played as a Stableford from the yellow tees and as it was a mixed gender competition, the CONGU calculations meant that the Men had a CHA (competition handicap adjustment) of minus 1 stroke.
Despite the cold conditions, the course was in good condition and the greens were receptive. The players at the top end of the leaderboard took full advantage of this and carded some very good scores.
The winner with a fine 39 points (CONGU adjusted to 38) was Chris Moore (7hcp) who shot an impressive gross 75. One point further back was Harry Jackson (16hcp) and one point behind Harry was third-placed Roy Whiting (17hcp).
Well done to all who turned out to play in the conditions.

Wendy Seymour Texas Scramble

Early boost for charity

As many will know, the Captain and Lady Captain's chosen charity this year is "Action for Children". The charity fund received a welcome boost yesterday after John Graham's employer AWE donated a cheque for £300. John nominated the charity at AWE who agreed to pay a donation to the charity if his area at work reached a 31 day period of total safety with no incidents, accidents or security problems. This was achieved last month, so the donation was duly paid by AWE.

Many thanks to AWE and to John for nominating this at work.
