Order of Merit & National League Standings
Club Championships 2017
Congratulations to Dean Plant, Sue Davis & Luke Humphreys on becoming Club Champions today.
In difficult, windy conditions Dean Plant played the back nine in -2 under to finish on 145 (73 – 72 ) to win the title for the first time as overnight leader, Mark Budd was unable to make his brilliance of the 1st round.
Andy Larkin took the lead after 12 holes, but a double-bogey on the 13th finished his chances as the normally consistent par machine, ran up several bogeys over the closing holes. Oli Hayes, Mark Budd & Andy Larkin all suffered problems on the back 9 as their approach shots found trouble, resulting in drop shots at key moments, allowing Dean Plant to capture the title .
Tom Foreman shot a level par 72 and set the Club House lead on +5, but a closing birdie 3 by Dean Plant sealed a great championship win.
Richard Harris captured the Silver Cup (nett) prize for a second time with a brilliant 2nd round 66 (138 – 72-66) to beat Andrew Portwin by 2 shots. (140 71-69)
Sue Davis captured the ladies Championship with rounds of 81 – 84 to win by 9 shots, Corrina Smith successfully defended the Silver Vase (nett) with rounds of 71-69 140 to win by 7. Ladies Club Championship Results

CHAIRMAN’S LADDER 2016/17
Jordi Southgate wins the Chairman’s Ladder
Jordi Southgate completed a memorable double at the weekend in winning both the Chairman’s Ladder and Mike Ormiston Trophy for the league. Jordi Defeated Club Champion, Rob Hampson 2 & 1 in the Final. Rob Hampson was 3 down at the turn, but won the 10th to get back to 2 down and then holed a 40ft putt to win the 12th to get the match back to 1 down, but Jordi sealed the win with a great birdie on the 17th. Rob’s defeat relegated him to 5th overall as Nigel Phillips finished as runner-up with Mark Earley claiming the top prize in the ladder.
68 members played in the Final day matches with Simon Blakeney winning the Stableford competition with an excellent 40pts.
The day didn’t go without incident as Stuart Catton’s golf club rolled into the ditch on the 18th, Stuart bravely jumped in to retrieve the clubs with the help of his fellow players, although one of the group managed to luckily capture the moment on camera. I am very pleased to report that golfer & clubs were safely retrieved and no fish were killed during the rescue operation!
There were 7 x 2’s this week which paid £77each.

LADIES CHAIRMAN’S LADDER 2016-17
Alicia Phillips wins the Ladies Ladder
Alicia Phillips won the trophy for the 3rd time in a closely fought final against Sue Farrant. I doubt there is a more competitive women in world golf, so Alicia had to be on her game. A good solid start and consistent golf allowed Alicia to take a 4 up lead, but Sue gradually fought back until finally losing out on the 17th, a great final.
Such are the vagaries of the Ladder (with its snakes & ladder format) that Sue finished in 3rd place and Carol Baker jumped from 7th to win her match against Viv Jouhin to win 2nd prize.
Amanda Hilton and Alicia Phillps were joint winners of the league.
