Waltz 1st August.

How many weeks has it been without rain? Quite a while and not enough to interfere with our golf however, today was different. The early starters got well into their game before any form of precipitation occurred and just as the main group went off one heavy shower came along, then a little break and then the rain came in for a more prolonged period enough to send many of our members scurrying for the shelter of the clubhouse. Not for everyone though, the real hardened golfers just shrugged it off and continued for the whole eighteen holes; three groups completing the round and one coming off after the twelfth. Well done them.

 Today’s winners were:-

1st Bob White, Mike Burt and Bert Robinson            69 points £15 team

2nd Keith Potter, Brian Hodder and John Pearce        64               12

3rd Mike King, Ken Trott and Brian Denning             62                 9

John Pearce had the only birdie worth £10.

No handicap reductions today and the balance of the money goes to the Captains Charity.

 Clive Fisk won the rolling stableford with a fine 44points for July collecting £9 for his efforts.

 Tomorrow is Pro’s day. Let’s hope the weather is favourable for Liam and all those taking part.

 Monday. There is the home match against Axe Cliff and another round of the Knighton Heath Plate at Wareham. Those not involved will play 2/3 stableford.

 Wednesday is the Jubilee Salver Scramble tee times to be displayed in the changing rooms and on line.

 Enjoy your weekend.   AD 1.8.14.

Division Two Shine.

Another lovely warm summer day and less wind than yesterday. Despite the uncertainty over the sale of the club; it’s currently under offer on the Savilles website, it was very much business as usual. Those members of Taunton Vale are in a similar situation but I was told that it was rumours only about the confirmation of their sale. Slightly unsettling for us, spare a thought for the staff and franchisees who have made a significant commitment to the success of our club.
Thirty six members turned up to take part in a qualifying stableford off yellow tees. Six points covered all of the division one scores. The best were in division two with Tony Stenhouse again heading the sheet with a fine forty one points; this time he gets cut almost three shots for his trouble with Bill Hilson also getting in the frame with a fine thirty eight. In fact the top four places in division two are cut. Great performance, congratulations to all of the winners. Full results are published on how did I do and in the changing rooms.
