Senior Avalon league Final

Senior Avalon league Final Long Sutton v Enmore Park

 

We arrived at Worlebury on a foggy damp Wednesday morning to play Enmore in the final.

(A rerun of the inaugural final 3 years ago which we lost narrowly 3-2 with the last match losing on the 20th )

The order of play were as follows:

 Phil Bowditch and Clive Haggett , Martin Hawkins and Richard Body ,

Geoff Monks and Martin Abbott , Roy Parmiter and Phil Lock

 Myself and Hugh McGuire out last.

Hughie and I were met with birdies and eagles over the first 4 holes, 4 down! This was not in the script.

We managed to claw 1 hole back with a birdie on the 5 th and held out until the 9 th when they birdied that hole. 4 down at the turn. However we did hear that both Long Sutton pairs in front were 1 up.

We did not know what was happening in the first 2 matches .But  after another 2 birdies by our Opponents ( one birdie resulting from our opponent driving a par 4 , 289 yards! ) We lost 6 and 5.

1 match down. As we trudged in from the 15th we saw Phil, Clive , Geoff and Martin waiting for us.

They had both won , 2 / 1 and   4 / 3 against  a previously unbeaten pairs. Their captain , Mike Rossiter ( 6 handicap) was overheard saying that he only dropped 2 shots!

Roy and Phil were  on the 16th ( a par 3) We saw Enmore make par which left Phil with a putt which we presumed was for a half. It turned out that it was for a 2 !  Phil’s second of the day ( by 9 pm that night the whole club knew)

They were now 2 up  with 2 to play.

I was feeling much happier as  we now made our way to the 17 ,  we heard that Martin and Richard were also 2 up with 2 to play.

They were playing the pair that beat us on the 20th 3 years ago. All 3 players were taking shots off Martin. From a distance we saw that Richard had a putt to close out the match which he duly sank!

Roy and Phil ( the pair who had lost on the 20th 3 years ago ) were determined to win their match which they did in style on the 17th.

We had beaten a very strong team who had held the trophy for the last 3 years.

A great win for the team and club.

Drinks flowed that night in the clubhouse ( thank you Stuart and Tommy for your contributions)

PRO SHOP TEMPORARY CLOSURE *Please Read*

As of Monday 21st Oct, the Pro Shop is undergoing a minor refurbishment. This will result in a closure for 3 days until Wednesday 23rd Oct.

Myself and Richard will still be at the club and running a makeshift pro shop of sorts down in the bar, whilst work is completed. We will still be able to book in Members/Visitors and provide Driving Range tokens, gloves, balls and other such items during the closure.

Please bare with us whilst work is carried out, and we are hopeful that by Wednesday afternoon we will be back in the normal place! 

For Ladies and Seniors that have competitions across these days, you can sign in as normal with us in the bar for your comps (e.g. Ladies Morning Wednesday)

Any issues please give us a call, sorry for any inconvenience.  

Many Thanks

Survey Results

Well the results are in.

As set out in the welcome meeting with Stuart and Anne the survey was sent out, the results are now in. With over 180 returning an answer to the single question of " What single most important change or improvement would you like to see put into place" there weren't really many surprises

With 48% of answers requesting improvents to the bunkers, 17% requiring improvement to the surrounds & 17% improvement to the tees.

Click here to see the data of the results

Many will be pleased to see that the improvements to the bunkers has already started on the 2 bunkers on the 16th, work should be completed by next Friday 11th October. Although there will need to be a little time for the turf to settle.  Consultation has already started on a program to improve the surrounds and planned improvement to some tees over the winter. We are keen to not only make these improvements, but also to complete them to a high standard.

With requests ranging from tidying up in the carpark and the walk to the first tee, to longer hours on the range and bar. Many of the requests have already been put into action.

The bar area will get new flooring on 28th & 29th October. This will cause a little disruption as the bar will be out of action for those 2 days, however we will use the function room as the main bar on that Monday & Tuesday. New furniture will follow a week later. New seationg for the function room will be here before the end of October. With Sky TV also now in place the whole feel of the bar area has been improved

The new tractor, rough cutter and hedge cutter have been delivered. The greenstaff are working flat out to imrpove the course conditions and giving everyone a far better experience out on the course. 

The driving range has new mats and the ball machine area has been enclosed to tidy it up. The teaching area has been enclosed to give a more private feeling while having your lesson with our new Director of Golf, Richard Antrobus. The lights have been fixed on the range and the opening hours extended to allow practice during the dark evenings. The lights around range now also work, so the whole area is more welcoming and safer.

So, although that's all for now folkes, watch this space as the improvements just keep on coming.
