County Captain's Day 2022

CCD WinnersAfter a stressful few days, listening to the heatwave forecasts and debating what was the best course of action, we decided to go ahead with my Captain’s Day at Hollinwell on 18th July 2022, with some alterations to the course and the timings to make it more manageable. We reduced the number of holes to 13, missing out the tough loop round the top, and brought as many of the tee times forward as we could. Several teams chose not to play, knowing the heat would be too much for some of their players, but it was lovely that some of those ladies did come up for their meal, to socialise and maybe even win a raffle prize!

26 teams did compete, and a hearty congratulations to all of them. It was hard work out there!

Summer Meeting & Vets 2022

We had a very enjoyable meeting at Norwood Park on Monday 4th July, with good weather and a friendly welcoming atmosphere. Particular mention to Norwood’s Lady Captain Lisa Cook, who cheerfully served refreshments at halfway despite not being able to play since breaking her leg at the start of the season. The firm ground, gusty winds and a few rather tricky pin positions created an interesting challenge, and the leading scores were impressively good.

The winner of the Scatch Jubilee Bowl was Karin Bassitt from Norwood, with a gross 80. The Handicap Cup winner was Charlie Hall from Southwell with 37 points, on countback. Julie Revill from Sherwood Forest won the Gill Shawcross (Veteran Scratch) Cup with a gross 82, and thus qualifies for the England Golf Veteran Champion of Champions event at Woodhall Spa in September. Good luck Julie!
Margaret Ferguson from Stanton won the Dorothy Payne (over 70) Cup with 37 points. Full results are available for download here.

Well done to all the prize winners.  Thanks as always to our Competition Secretaries, Rosemary Lockwood and Sue Robinson for all their hard work.

County Championship & Spring Meeting 2022

finalists2022aOn Friday 13th May, at Sherwood Forest GC, we held the 36 hole stroke play stage of the County Championships, and also the 18 hole Spring Meeting. Sherwood was as magnificent as always, but presented an extremely hard challenge due to the strong gusty wind, which did not let up all day! Despite this, there were some very good scores in both events.

In the 36 holes, Maddie Smith (Norwood) won the scratch prize with 145, and Amelia Hogg (Norwood) won the nett with 147. Norwood Park also won the team prize, their youthful team of Maddie, Elizabeth Wilson and Amelia retaining the trophy they won last year.

The Spring Meeting scratch prize was won by Bev Cook (The Nottinghamshire) with 84, with Helen Haycox, also from The Nottinghamshire winning the nett prize with 74. Maggie Burrows from Mapperley added to the excitement of the day with a hole in one on the 10th - no mean feat into that strong wind!
