Saturday golf at the club

Saturday’s competition was a 2-person ambrose kindly sponsored by Gloucester Furniture One.

A big thank you to Neil and Nikki for their continued support.

The course responded rapidly to the welcome rain and last weeks’ brownness on the fairways was replaced with a tinge of green.

Credit must go to our green keeper Rossy for maintaining the course to an excellent standard through the last few very dry months.

Winners on the day were the father-son combination of Doug and Paul Blanch with a score of 65 3/4 nett closely followed by Brian McInnes and Bill Norris with 66 nett.

Another father-son combo Craig and James McLeod took out third place with 66 3/4 nett. Keith Whitby and John Herd (68) won a ball in the ball comp along with the above mentioned players.

NTPs A Grade: Paul Blanch, B Grade: Brian “Hairy” Osborne, C Grade: Neil “Dolly” Dowsett. 2nd shot: Hairy again Long Drive: Shane Crichton.

Super Seven results for last week saw Keith Whitby (17 pts) as the winner of the Darrell’s Gourmet Butchery meat voucher. Balls went to Keith, Graeme Marsh (16), Jim Dunn, Bill Murray (15), Mark Howland, Dave Mann (14), Peter Buettel (13 c/b). Next Saturday’s event is a single stableford for the GWG Constructions trophy.

Players are also reminded about putting their names down for the Gloucester Open Day on Sunday, October 29 - 18 holes - 10am shotgun start.
