Past Captains' Charity Day
Congratulations go to Terry Roe after he had a winning 40-point haul in the Past Captains' Charity day on Saturday.
Terry, 64, took top spot thanks to an on-form short game and an impressive 22 points on the back nine holes which resulted in him pipping Oliver Mortimer on countback after both finished with the same score. David Evans took third place on countback from Andy Jones after both finished with 39 points; Oonagh Russell won the Ladies nine hole competition with 22 points, two more than runner-up Avril Simpson. There were nearest-the-pin prizes for Paul Reid, Kevin O'Donoghue, Steve Boud and Steve Paine whose tee shot on the 14th was inch perfect for a hole-in-one.
The event raised around £1,500 which will be donated to the Chiltern Multiple Sclerosis Centre later in the year.
Seniors Tucker Cup
Congratulations also go to Paul Ahmet as the new holder of the Seniors Tucker Cup. He carded 39 points, beating David Minister on countback. Mark Hammond took third place with 38pts, two clear of Izzy Ramdeen with Eddie Young fifth on countback from David Banwell and Peter Rutt after all three finished with 35pts.
Lady Captain's Day
Avril Simpson's Lady Captain's Day was held last Tuesday in beautiful weather and scores matched.
Jackie Stimpson won Division One with 38pts while Alison Williams won Division Two with 41pts and Margaret Browning won Division Three with 36pts. In the afternoon 9 holes pairs competition the winners of the front 9 were Phil and Barbara Rickard with 26pts and the back 9 holes was won by Steve and Patti Marriott with 23pts.
