Special Ball Stableford Results: 16th Oct 2017
Today's Bag Day Special Ball Stableford went ahead despite ex-hurricane Ophelia's attempts to blow us off the course!
Six teams of three ventured out into the early low cloud with the results as follows:
1st/ Peter Kelly, John Lockwood and Joe James with 119pts
2nd/ Andy Edey, Dave Freake and Dave Smith with 118pts
3rd/ Gordon Glover, Dan Parry and Ted Davies with 117pts
Last Thursday we lost away to The Herefordshire by 7 matches to 0. Hopefully we can do better in our final match of the year away to Wharton Park tomorrow 17/10/17.
Seniors Away Day: 5th October 2017
The away day to Bromsgrove Golf Club was a resounding success. Twenty-two travelled to a venue which to the majority was a new course. We were treated to kind weather on a parkland track with the inevitable problem with leaves at this time of year and perhaps a lack of sand in the bunkers. This said, the course played well with some good golfing holes and well worth another visit, hopefully next June's away day. The results were as follows for teams of three two scores to count:
1st/ David Freake / Dave Patterson / Nigel Venables 72pts
2nd/ Arthur Hyde / David Mains / Dan Parry 71pts
3rd/ Richard Elmes / Keith Lister / Barry Wilson 71 pts (back 9)
Nearest the pin -- 7th hole Colin Blick
Nearest the pin -- 11th hole Ted Davies
Longest drive -- 18th hole Sam Hinton
Kington Seniors were hammered by Bransford 6 - 0
The weather didn't help either as we were hammered by the rain as well.
A Reminder that 5th October is our final away day of the summer. There are a few places up for grabs, three at the moment, for a good day out at a new course with coffee and bacon roll on arrival, 18 holes and a two-course meal all for £30. (£35 for non-Seniors)
Seniors Match update: 21st August 2017
Last Thursday's home match saw Kington come out as 4:2 winners against Cradoc GC. This was a close encounter and Kington's hero was Alan Beves who eagled the 18th to win his match and stave off a 3:3 draw. Well done that man!
This Wednesday 23/8/17 sees our Kington Seniors Open, so good luck to you all and not too much luck to our visitors.
Thanks to Chris Scott for all his hard work. Let's hope the weather plays ball for us.
