Autumn Open Sunday 5th November 2017 - Results
The Autumn Open was a great success. Although we had a considerable amount of rain overnight the tee times ran on schedule starting at 7.30 and we had 124 players representing many different clubs from all over the region and beyond....
I must make a special mention at this point about the course and the repair work which has been done especially on the 2nd fairway with new turf. The course although damp today looked and played very well and it is a credit to Ian and his team.
We had just over 30 visitors who stayed for the presentation and although some live in Sutton Coldfield they were discussing Winter and Country Membership options... We have already got interest for next seasons' Open comps and festival weekend.
There were 14 twos - if you were fortunate enough to have one then Keith has the list and the balls for you to collect.

Junior Open - 18th August 2017
What a fantastic day of Junior golf! And apart from a small rain storm the weather was much kinder to us than in previous years.
24 congu handicap players entered the 18 hole stroke play competition and 12 non-congu Juniors entered the 9 hole Dave Haley Challenge Cup. We had entrants from 7 different clubs which was fantastic.
Many thanks go to everyone that helped in their own way on the day - members, family, friends - without this help and support the day could not have not gone ahead and a special thanks to Stuart and Abbie for a fabulous BBQ.
The presentation was late afternoon where our club Chairman kindly helped present the competition prizes in front of a brim full clubhouse. (Results as below)
