TAMWORTH VETERANS GOLF COMPETITION – 10th SEPTEMBER 2021.

We had another day with an exceptional sized field of 79 members hitting the back nine on a delightful Friday morning.  It will be interesting now we are out of LOCKDOWN (permanently hopefully) to see how our field sizes hold up, but at the moment it appears everyone is enjoying the fact that golf is one of the few recreational activities being embraced. With a score of 22pts, Bruce Grogan claimed first place, so congratulations Bruce you win a $35.00 Pro Shop Voucher. Danny Lewis with 21pts was awarded second place ahead of Joe Goldsworthy, in third and then Wayne Smyth. Then with 20pts were Eric Callcut, Trevor Leicht, Dennis Martin, Ren Chen, Bill Hely & Lee Charlesworth. Following on 19pts came Steve Hopkins, Laurie Boules, Max Henry & Ben Van Aanholt. Next with 18pts were Phil Heffernan, Barrie Young, Andrew Horton, Stephen Cartwright, Allan King, Phil lyon, John Lovell, Rob Bartlett-Taylor, Ed Leyden, Peter Missen, Frank Henry, Keith Crapp & Andrew Frost. It is quite a while since we had so many play to their handicap with 18pts or better. Then with 17pts came Stephen Bright, Dan Daly, Allan Rankins & Lindsay Hobson. The last balls from the morning went to all players who scored 16pts, with those players being,Jerry Anderson, Bob Newlan, Peter Coombes, Ian Bath, Trevor West, John Ramsey, John Frame, Dick Sherwood & Neville Thomas and “last but not least” Wayne Chillingworth.

Even though restrictions have eased a little, in as much as playing in groups of four with two players per cart, we are not able to have a Nearest the Pin as yet. So the ball allocated for that purpose will still be added to the list of ball winners.   

MAJOR VETS EVENTS THROUGH TO THE END OF THE YEAR:-   As it stands with restrictions eased a little, we will keep our programme intact for the year and hope for the best. When you put your name down for the 24th Sept, the person on the starting sheet next to you will be your partner in the 2 MAN AGRAGATE EVENT. I will detail the prizes available for that event in next weeks Newsletter.
