As we move into the second half of the year here are some recent highlights and news from Trent Park Golf Club for June and July 2010.
Summer Midweek League Kick-off
June and July have seen the start of the new Summer Midweek League
sponsored by Nevada Bobs. We have seen some fantastic scoring with Dave Comerford shooting 41 points
to claim June's £20 voucher. Remember there is one voucher up for grabs each month for the best score as well as £50 to the league leader in September.
Another highlight has been the Drummond Championship
in June which was won by Luke Stephanides. Luke's 2 day total of 148 was a fantastic achievement - well done Luke!
The competition did not run without incident with the disqualification of 3 members for failing to sign / pay before teeing off. We remind members that they must sign-in using the Green Competition book and ensure payment is placed into the competition box before teeing off.
The committee will look again at the use of the book in Major competitions later this year ahead of the Annual General Meeting in November.
Well done to the mixed foursomes team who over the last three months beat Whitewebbs (Home), Little Hay (Away) but were pipped to the post by Cobtree Manor GC in July. We wish them well for the next round. Thank's to Bernadette Sheehan for all her efforts in organising the teams and travel plans.
Frank Rowse Trophy
After a storming victory earlier in the year our scratch boys went to West Middlesex to play the second round of the prestigious Frank Rowse Trophy
. Playing on the same day as the British Open final we failed to get through to the next round after 36 holes of golf. Well done to everyone who took part and better luck next year!
Men's Championship of England
UKPCC Regional Finals
Trent Park Golf Club had13 players representing the club at the UKPCC
regional final in Hainult Forest recently, with two qualifiers who each will play at St Andrews in September.
Well done to (some bloke called) Matt Clarke
and to Bharat Dave
who both shot 37 points to qualify for the National final held on the Eden Course at St Andrews.
Joint Captain's Day 2010
On July the 4th we held our premier stableford event of the year Captain's Day. A full list of results has already been posted on-line
and the complete results sheets (men
) are available in case you missed them. Speaking on behalf of the Committee and the Lady Captain we all felt it was a wonderful day of golf and thank you to all who played. Well done to 'Big Mark' and Billie Waters who won the Ladies and Men's overall prizes. All the photos are still on-line
and prints can be purchased via the Captain at a price of £3 each.
Charity Fund Raising
We raised £635
for charity on the Raffle on the day as well as a further £120
from Nevada bobs who organised a charity nearest the pin on hole 11. This is a staggering amount and a special thank you must go to Tony Davies who was the chief fund-raiser at the event. This years Captains Charity is Breakthrough Breast Cancer
