CAGU DEREK BURRIDGE Report v St Ives

Match Report – March Golf Club v St Ives Golf Club  (Saturday 30th March)

CAGU Derek Burridge Knock-out

 

In the first round of the Cambridgeshire Area Golf Union Knock-out, the team from March Golf Club battled to a hard-earned win against a strong team from St Ives Golf Club. The match was a close encounter with three of the five matches going to the 18th green, and March winning by a score of 3 to 2.

Unlike two weeks ago, when the same two sides met in a CAGU League match, the weather was much kinder on both sides, with the standard of golf played reflecting the easier playing conditions.

Club Captain, Alan Jones, thanked both teams afterwards for a competitive match played in good spirit. He also thanked the members of the March team (Chris Elliott & Danny Daniel, Alan Jones & Ray Pescud, Mick Russell & Mark Athow, Simon Moore & Brian Newstead, Derek Wisbey & Roger Watts) for turning out to represent the club and for a very pleasing result.

A bottle of wine was presented to the winner of ‘nearest the pin’ on the 165 yard par 3 6th hole. A magnificent shot to about 12 feet secured the prize for Alan Jones from the home team.

Are you aged 8 -19?

Bored with social media? Feel you need more exercise but can’t face going to the gym? Enjoy the company of like-minded older teenagers? Played pitch and putt with your family (and quite enjoyed it), or never held a golf club in your life?

If the answer to all (or at least some) of these questions is yes, then we might just have the answer for you at March Golf Club.

In 2018, March Golf Club launched a junior academy. This is aimed at younger golfers and many of our academy members have improved their games enough to start progressing onto the course itself.

Academy membership would be available for you and will include monthly group lessons with our resident PGA professional, assisted by enthusiastic volunteers from amongst the members.

Experience membership would give you full access to the practice facilities at March Golf Club. You would be able to benefit from, a full driving range, practice putting green, practice chipping green, practice bunker and a three-hole pitch and putt course. The club is also intending to raise sufficient money to fund a covered driving range in the near future. In short, everything you would need to learn the game and become a better golfer.

Intermediate membership for your age group offers full access to March Golf Club at a fraction of the price paid by adult members. A wonderful opportunity for you to learn and play a game which can be your hobby for the rest of your life.

Mens Captain 4Ball Better Ball

   Competition Report – Mens Captains 4-ball better ball  (Saturday 23rd March)

In the traditional opening club competition of the golfing season, 44 golfers from March Golf Club teed off in near perfect weather conditions. This was the first competition of the year played from the back tees, and the change to a longer course proved quite challenging for many of the pairs.

The winners, with an excellent score of 45 points were Andy Lilley and Tom Sharpe. Second were Hugh McGarvie and Darrell Ladds with a very creditable 42 points, closely followed by Stan Dunn and Mark Crawley with 40 points.

A bottle of wine was presented to the winner of ‘nearest the pin’ on the 162-yard par 3 15th hole. A  magnificent shot inside 6 feet secured the prize for Gary Holmes.

Prizes were also awarded to four players (Stan Dunn, Baz Smith, Mark Crawley and Gary Holmes) who secured birdie two’s on the day.

Club Captain, Alan Jones, would like to thank everyone who took part on the day. He would also like to thank the greenkeeping team for presenting the course in such good condition in the early part of the season.

Thanks also go to the team from Classic Catering for the very welcome bacon rolls half way round, to our professional, Alex Oldham, for organising the start sheet and cards and also to our Competitions Secretary, Derek Wisbey, for processing the scores.
