As part of his fund-raising activities for the year, March Golf Club Captain, Alan Jones, took part in a 3-round Eclectic Challenge. All three rounds of golf were completed on the same day, Thursday 17th October, with an early start at 7.12am. The three rounds were completed at 14.22pm making a total of 7 hours 10 minutes for the 54 holes.
The aim of an eclectic challenge was to complete each hole in the lowest possible score with only the best score counting to the final total. Alan completed the challenge with a final gross score of 76 (against a par of 70) which was a decent effort for a 12-handicap golfer.
Club members were given the opportunity to guess the final score and four members (Graham Twist, Baz Smith, Simon Moore and Danny Daniel) correctly picked the final total.
Prizes were on offer to those members who got the correct final total and, in the draw carried out straight afterwards, Graham was the lucky winner of a free 4-ball voucher for Stoke Rochford Golf Club. It is a fine course to visit and Graham and three other members will have a great day out. The runners-up, Simon, Danny and Baz won a £10 credit voucher to spend in the professional’s shop at March Golf Club run by our resident PGA professional, Alex Oldham.
Alan would like to express his thanks to all the members who paid to sponsor him for his Captain’s Challenge with a good sum of money raised for his Captain’s project for the year.
Alan would also like to thank those members who supported him on the day. Without the help and support of Mick Russell, Gary Brinn and Ray Pescud, the challenge could not have been completed.
