Results from South Winchester Society Event

Results for South Winchester Golf Club Event

Thanks all for attending the Farnham golf society event at South Winchester golf club on Friday 20th April. Blistering heat on a reasonably long Winchester course led to some around average scores.
Congratulations to Bill Lewington who won with a creditable 37 points with Phil Boyle coming in second with 34 points. You can see the mughot here. Longest drive went to Phil Boyle and Glen Sweet won nearest the pin. Pink ball went to Gareth Sweet with a forgettable 22 points.
The detailed results and financials can be seen in the members area.

Bill will be Captain for the next event at Sonning Golf Club on Friday 18th May.

Phil has kindly offered to enter all players results and stableford scores into an online system which will generate ongoing and accurate handicaps and more importantly, starting handicaps for next season based on all results on all courses we will have played in the 2018 season. The society will pay for the yearly £24.95 fee, if you would like to generate an official handicap after 3 rounds, there is a £15 fee, otherwise there are no extra charges for society members. Thanks to Tux for the suggestion.

So, here we go again! Last match of the (very enjoyable) season. We’ve played some great courses this year, so thanks as always go to Sam.

So, to business……Runaway, odds on, almost dead cert winner 😉 is Paul ‘The Destroyer’ Tucker on a massive 145 points. Running second (and in with a shout) is Andy ‘Eagle Eyed’ Schofield just 4 points behind (but needing to score 38 points), in third is Gareth ‘Lazy Swing’ Sweet 9 points behind, but only needing a meagre 37 points to tie with the leader. Last of the top 4, (but not least) is Terry ‘The Hammer’ Leader and needing a 39 pointer to get himself in the running. These four will be teeing off last next Saturday.

As for the 3’s competition, Andy is leading the way with 23 (best 4), from Paul on 22, then Chris and Terry both on 19.

Guests are welcome, however, please be advised that the cost is £110. If they book and subsequently fail to play, the full cost will be down to the guests member.
Last day to pull out is this Saturday 23rd.

As an added incentive the golf society will be entering a team for the end of season invitational at West Hill Golf Club. This will be for the 2017 season top 4 finishing players, the event is to be held on Friday 27th October. If any of the top 4 cannot make it, the prize will be offered to fifth place etc. In the event of a tie for 4th place, countback rules will apply on the final round.

Look forward to seeing you all there….don’t forget we’ll also be throwing a few ideas around for next year (nominally called the AGM)
