This trophy was presented in 2006 by the family of Bryan Baker MBE in his memory. Bryan was Captain In 1988 and President in 2003.
Congratulations to Hannah for playing to her new handicap and so winning this trophy. Very steady going Hannah. I am sure both Fern and Liam Rowe are kicking themselves. Fern for her missed putts on the 18th and Liam for his poor front 9 and then going on to shoot a gross 37 on the back 9. Heyho – such is life!
The Ian MacFarlane Cup was presented in 1954 by Mr. & Mrs. J. C. Macfarlane in memory of their son Ian, a former junior member. It is therefore the oldest trophy for which the juniors compete. It is an eighteen hole medal for members under twenty-one years of age, who have a CONGU handicap.
Congratulations to Junior Captain George for winning this (yet another) trophy and his third consecutive win in junior competitions. In doing so George not only reduced his handicap but, had an ESR applied and so pulled his handicap by 1.3 down to 10.4. I think he is trying hard not to let Jake (Sheldon) get too far ahead!! Well done also to Holly who reduced her handicap by 0.9 down to 13.9. Keep going Holly.
This competition is sponsored by the Ladies Section and is a Greensome Stableford with a junior partnering a lady. Pairs are allocated by a draw for partners, with the exception on the Captains, who usually play together. The competition is followed by a meal, which is paid for by the Ladies Section.
After the meal the Lady Captain thanked everyone who played, especially those ladies taking part for the first time. She congratulated all the juniors and hoped they had an enjoyable day and a good game. On behalf of the junior section our Captain George Johnson said a few words thanking the Lady Captain for the game and the ladies for giving the juniors the competition and the lovely meal. He also hoped that everyone had an enjoyable day and said how well he thought the Course was looking and playing.
