The Chetwynd Plate is a trophy sponsored by the Ladies Section and is played as a Greensome Stableford. The ladies also provide the juniors with a meal following the golf, which is always very welcome - especially for the juniors! In addition the juniors who come in the top three receive a prize. This year these were vouchers for the Pro’s shop. Very welcome all ‘round.
There were twelve pairs playing and, as you can see, on what was a very warm day the scoring was very impressive. Mind you, I think Ethan was probably still asleep because he had only returned from Portugal at midnight, got up early to do a paper round and then had a 9.00 am tee time. Umm - not quite sure how that works!
Now, a notable event. Alfie White had a Hole-in-One on the 17th. Congratulations Alfie. This was his first hole in one so the pressure is now off Alfie and I am sure there are many more to come.
It would be remiss of me if I didn’t note my thanks on behalf of the Junior Section. First, to Alfie Poole who was a reserve for our junior contingent. Thank you Alfie for being there at the start and waiting just in case another junior couldn’t make it. I hope that joining everyone for the meal was a little recompense?
To the Ladies Section for sponsoring this event, with all that entails and a special thank you to Nicki Bowen (Ladies Competition Team) who organised everything, including the draw for playing partners. Cheers Nicki.
