Club Champs Matchplay Finals

Congratulations to all Club Champs matchplay competition winners last Saturday, well done – there were a number of very close matches decided on the last hole, and one extended to a sudden death playoff. The spirit in which the matches were played was a real credit to all finalists, and in particular to the naturally disappointed runners-up who were generous in saluting their victors.

But congratulations also to all who participated in the Club Champs matchplay competition: along with the strokeplay, these competitions are our pinnacle Club events, and aspiring to see your name on the honours board is to be encouraged. It would be great to see full fields for the strokeplay competition later in the year.

Thank you also to those who helped prepare the course beforehand and to all who turned up on the day to follow the matches – spectators certainly added to the occasion and provided a rather different experience for player

“Support Local, Shop Local” Ambrose Tournament

What a great turnout for this innovative Ambrose tournament last Sunday – 40 teams of three players participated, leading to a real buzz in the packed clubhouse afterwards. This event was a major success and a great advertisement for our Club given the large number of visitors who took part.

Many thanks to John & Marie Rayner and hard-working support team for their organisational efforts, in particular in securing so many generous sponsors who got behind the post-lockdown “Support Local, Shop Local” mantra.
