Our next club social event is a Spanish Tapas evening on Friday 26th September, 7 for 7:30pm and Justin and the team have created a great Tapas menu!
There will be Sangria, Spanish wine and San Miguel on draft available.
Music with a "spanish flavour" will be provided by Tams & Day.
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!
Thank you to the members for the huge support with the Brocton Hall PGA Pro Am last week in allowing the use of the course and in particular John Perkin who spent the entire day ball-spotting on the first hole and to Lady Captain Val Keeling, Christine Davies, Amanda Horne, Di Allder, Gill Bloxham and Trish Sandy who 'womanned' the halfway house.
Paul Broadhurst won the pro medal with a 4 under par 65 and there were 2 teams well out in front with scores of –19, eventually going to Matt Southwell's team from The Chase golf club.

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.
