The SGU Seniors County Stableford was held at Long Sutton Golf Club on Friday 7 Oct
Long Sutton Seniors Section gave great support to the event, with 32 out of the 80 competitors coming from the club providing 8 teams for the team event & enabling the county to place a Long Sutton in each of the 3 Balls to give guidance to the visitors to the club.
The day was a great success with all the visitors enjoying the day & commenting on how they were delighted with our greens. So may I congratulate Jonny & the green-keeping staff on the excellent preparation.
The overall results were also great success for the Club
In the Individual Stableford we had the winner, our own Bill Bond, winning the overall County Seniors Individual Trophy with a magnificent score of 41 Points & also his resultant new reduced Handicap!
Congratulation Bill on your success!!!
John Pearson took 3rd place with 37 points
Mike Bowling taking 4th place with 36 points.
So 3 out of the top 4 individual prizes
With regards to the team event it was a clean sweep with Long Sutton taking all 3 prizes.
1st: Mike Bowling, Alan Webber, Rich Dore, & Len Collin - 104 points (best 3 scores count)
2nd: John Pearson, Keith Penfold, Mike Layzell, & John Thomas - 101
3rd: Bill Bond, John Paterson, Dave Kennedy & Rich Bartin - 101
We had further success in the individual age categories with Norman Banfield & Alex Lyons each winning their age category group.
Thank you to all from the Seniors Section that took part & supported the event.
The event next year will be held at Farrington & hopefully we will support with a similar field of entrants & have similar success.
