RAFFERTY CUP QUALIFIER:
This past weekend saw the Rafferty Cup Qualifier. It was the 1st medal of this summer season, so typically I expected some reasonable weather, but as with everything being turned on it's head in recent times, there was some sunshine, some cloud, some SNOW !!
This however didn't stop some excellent scores. With 16 from each division qualifying for the knockout stages. Top of the pile were:
Saturday Div 1.
1st Graeme Allen. Net 69
2nd Varnavas Christofi. Net70
Saturday Div 2.
1st Paul Clark. Net 65
2nd Ahmet Bozdemir. Net 66
Sunday Div 1.
1st Richard Empson. Net 67
Sunday Div 2.
1st Ricky Townsend. Net 69
For a full list of those who qualified, check out the IG website or App and you should also receive a confirmation email.
On Sunday afternoon in much the same weather conditions, we had the first mixed event of the season. The Brasted Trophy which was a foursomes event.
Again there were some excellent scores.
1st place Lucy & Jack Bidmead with a magnificent 40 points.
2nd place Sharon & Guy Saunders 37 points.
3rd place Alison Towndrow & Mark Stevens 37 points.
No real surprise to see the ever improving Jack Bidmead at the top along side his mum Lucy. A formidable pairing.
Many thanks to Mark Stevens for organising the event.
MEN'S FOUR BALL DRAW:
With things slowly returning to normal but not quite fully, I would like to draw your attention to the upcoming Men's Four ball draw. For those new to the club, this is a fun competition (non qualifying) held on the morning of the 1st Sunday of each month. The next one being Sunday 2nd May. It is an excellent way to meet other members.
It is played in pairs. As a better ball competition.
Sign up on the IG website or App.
A draw will be made by our Pro Danny Hill on Monday 26th April & you will then receive an email informing you of your tee time & playing partners.
All groups will go off the 1st tee, from 8am onwards.
For those who have a WHS handicap index, there is an optional £5 sweep that you can enter using the IG website or App.
The competition is now available to enter.
This coming Weekend it's the April Medal. Hopefully full sunshine & NO SNOW !
