Bank Holiday Pairs Series:

On Monday 2 January we had our annual New Year Pairs Scramble which is the first fixture in our Bank Holiday Pairs Series. It was held on The Downs Course and saw a full tee sheet of members with a total of 44 pairs playing. It was a fun friendly start to the year with everyone making the most of the clear fresh day.

The competition was played as a Medal Pairs Texas Scramble with each player taking a minimum of six tee shots each. As always we had some amazing scores come in from the course with the top five pairs shown below:

Monthly Medal:

On Saturday 7 January we had our first monthly medal of 2023. Unfortunately, we had a particularly bad weather forecast with rain all day and winds of up to 40mph. While the weather was not quite as bad as forecast, we went from a full tee sheet to only 35 players on the day. They were determined out there despite conditions and the unforgiving medal format. The top five results are shown below:

Results Player Nett
1st Alastair Strange 66
2nd Ryan Burgess 67
3rd Richard Davis 68
4th Michael Olliff 69
5th Matthew Savory 71
