Seniors Spring Open 4th April 2018: Results and Update

Wednesday 4th April saw the Seniors Section running a new event on the Kington Golf Club calendar. 

The Seniors Spring Open Texas Scramble had an entry of over twenty teams of three and proved popular with all who played despite the greens being very wet. 

Considering the amount of rain and snow the course received in the preceding three days, we were extremely grateful to be playing at all.

Alun and Rob had worked hard to get the course playable, 

Thanks also to Joe James and Tom Davies for starting duties; to Toinette Davies for registration and collecting the cards in; to Paul Finch for collecting raffle prizes, and finally to Mary Hill for selling the raffle tickets and raising £222 for the joint captains charity. 

The winning team:  Colin Powell / Tim Jessop / John Purslow - 69 nett 57

Second: Bill Didcock / Richard Hill / Paul Finch - 72 nett 58.2 (cb 18th)

Third: Ivor Morgan / Colin Miles / Geoff Brown - 70 nett 58.2

 

Best gross: Ted Davies / Andy Edey / Gordon Glover - 63 nett 58.6

Nearest the pin 5th: Tony Willetts Enville GC

Nearest the pin 12th: Bill Freeman Bromsgrove/Kington

Thanks to all who played and we will be running this competition again next year
