Our new competition secretary, Danny Daniels, accompanied Alex to the Lombard Trophy regional final at Sandy Lodge Golf Club in London last Thursday the 20th July and finished high up on the leaderboard. Danny had a great day on the course, holing putts from everywhere and playing superbly to do most of the work on a front nine of 29 (-6) in the fourball better ball format. Alex got going a little on the back nine to complete his best finish at the event and added "It was wonderful to compete and be in the hunt, Danny was exceptional and has given us both a day to remember. The course was amazing and the tournament is the playing highlight every year for me without fail".
Following a heavy downpour in the early hours of the morning, the early players just about got away in dry weather. A total of 77 players took part and it was most unfortunate that the heavens once again opened when the ladies took to the course - Ivan apologised that this was one element of the day that he had no control over. The men's event was won by Simon Moore with 38 points with Lewis Hearn and Gary Neugebauer coming in close 2nd's with 37 points each. Penny Gilbert, who is in sparkling form of late, won the ladies event with 17 points just edging out Sarah Oldham on countback. The past Captain's prize was won by Chris Hodson who also successfully bid for the England ODI signed cricket bat . Nearest pins went to Glenis Jones, Penny Gilbert and Barry Cracknell. The blind auction for the golfing 4balls were won by Alex Oldham and Malcolm George. Total funds raised on the day for the Joint's charity 'MIND' was £553!! Thank you so very much to everyone who participated.
Emma Norman remains on top form winning the lower handicap group with 39 points, beating Sarah Oldham on countback. In the higher handicap division, Carolyn Morton returned a superb 41 points to take the top prize. Pam Hawes was second with 34 points, Viv Snushall with 32 points (Div 1) and Glenis Jones (Div 2) third with 31 points.
Other winners were; nearest the line, Brenda Softley; nearest the pin on the 2nd Ros Humphrey; nearest the pin on the 6th Emma Norman, longest drive (by a mile) Sarah Oldham.
Fiona said “ It was lovely to see so many ladies play and the weather conditions were almost perfect. The rain we had last week ensured the course was in great condition and this was reflected in some excellent scoring and a few handicap cuts! We enjoyed lots of bubbly and a delicious meal afterwards. I really enjoyed my day”.

After two very hot and humid days the Club Championships came to a conclusion on the afternoon of Sunday 17th June. Following a blistering net 64 on the Saturday, Gary Brinn fought hard to keep his lead throughout to become Handicap Champion with a 36 hole total of 138. Ray Pescud had a good day 2 (net 69) to finish runner up and Brian Newstead came in a credible 3rd.
The Club Champion is deservedly Gary Neugebauer who completed his two rounds on a score of 155 and finishing well ahead of Ivan Roberts 2nd and Stan Dunn 3rd. Congratulations to both Gary Neugebauer and Gary Brinn on their individual victories. Well done!!
