from our Incontinent Correspondent

9th March 2022 - Captain vs. Vice Captain
Vice Captain wins 7 - 1 !! Results here

As the first main event of the year the annual Captain vs. Vice Captain match saw 32 Seniors participating on the Woods course, all filled with tea and coffee and looking forward to bacon butties at the Halfway House along with Phil Turrell's home brewed hot drinks.
A leading contender for the "Cock Up Cup" is Mike Gulliford who unwittingly poured a shot of brandy into the sugar bowl - saying "did I really just do that!" As always the real winner was the Captain's Charity, making £360 with £270 from the raffle and £90.30 from the Halfway House - thanks to Bob Clarke for the 30p!!
Thanks to all concerned

March Medal - Stephenson has picked up where he left off..!!
from our Catheter Correspondent

This was the first qualifier of 2022 played as a Medal on the Woods Course which with all the rain we have had proved a difficult venture. Oh for warmer day and drier days !!

However, 14 Seniors battled their way round but only 1 played to handicap or better.

In winter months that is a fairly typical result!!

The winner was Pete Stephenson with a nett 71, in second place Richard Kieffer with a nett 74 on count back and in third place Bob Clarke with a nett 74

Thanks to all who played and many congratulations to Pete Stephenson.

February Stableford - it's another handy Andy, this time the one with the surname Wood
from our "Less Grumpy" Correspondent

Another Stableford on the Lakes Course - with the course slowly improving. A total of 18 made the start, with 17 finishing. Yet again, and typical of winter conditions, nobody played to par or better - but we did have a worthy winner

The winner was Andy Wood with 35 points, in second place Chris Daynes with 33 points and in third place Bob Privett with 32 points

January Stableford - He must have had the "right tools" - its Toule at last (only because Stephenson wasn't playing!)
from our "How to be a Granddad" Correspondent

Well after all the rain and cancelled qualifying competitions we eventually managed a Stableford on the Lakes Course - which despite a week of no rain remained quite wet. However, the weather was still in control as the 15 that turned up were reduced to 13 due to a mist delay of 1 hour - meaning a 09.30 start (and a 1.30 finish!!)

The winner was David Toule with 35 points, in second place Dave Dexter with 33 points and in third place Bob Clarke also with 32 points

December Stableford - Stephenson again, and again, and again, and again..!!
from our Dietary Correspondent

The winner was Pete Stephenson with 32 points, in second place Glenn Grimes with 30 points and in third place Nick Townend also with 30 points

November Stableford - Stephenson again, and again, and again..!!
from our Hospital Correspondent

November has proved a difficult month with all the rain we have had and this Stableford had been rescheduled.

The Lakes course was still very wet under foot and with the leaves having fallen did make ball finding difficult at times.

However, 23 Seniors battled their way round but only 1 played to handicap or better.

In winter months that is a fairly typical result!!

The winner was Pete Stephenson with 36 points, in second place David Toule with 34 points and in third place Tom Rea with 32 points

Thanks to all who played and many congratulations to Pete Stephenson.

October Stableford - If any one would, Andy Wood would!!
from our Travel Correspondent

The least feared combination of a Stableford on the Woods meant we had a total of 28 registering for this event and we were greeted by probably the coldest morning of the year so far. Maybe that's why only 1 of our fold managed to play to par

The winner was Andy Wood with a 36 points, in second place Norman Tidy with 35 points on count-back from Mike Gulliford also with 35 points

Thanks to all who played and many congratulations to Andy Wood.

October Medal - Its Handy Andy yet again, what will Glenda do with his balls!!
from our Bulgarian Diplomatic Correspondent

The dreaded combination of a Medal on the Lakes and a dodgy weather forecast meant we only had 20 players (one if which stated only 9 holes today!). A further 2 fell by the wayside meaning we had 17 players finishing the competition.

The winner was Andy Davidge with a very commendable nett 68, in second place Colin Musson with a nett 71 and in 3rd place David Toule with a nett 73

Thanks to all who played and many congratulations to Andy Davidge.

September Stableford - Stephenson Rockets Ahead
from our IT Correspondent

Monthly Stableford on the Lakes - 21 Seniors, weather conditions not bad but about half the round played in drizzle, mostly light.

Greens a little slow but obviously did not affect those who managed very good scores.

The winner was Peter Stephenson with 40 points, in second place Chris Watchorn with 39 points and third Bob Privett on 38 points

Congratulations to Peter
