Men’s Open Sunday 5 May

44 pairs took part in the Men’s Open on Sunday.  A little rain mid-morning had no real effect on the course which was in excellent condition helped by the earlier improvement in the weather and by a tremendous effort by the greens staff in the last 2 weeks. It was tough though and this was reflected in the scores . First place £100 each with 40 points (back nine of 22) were Carl Smith and Andrew Wright from Penwortham Golf Club. Second with 40 points £70 each (with a back nine of 21) were Neil Anderson/ Brian Lord from Nelson & Marsden Park Third with 40 points £55 each (with a back nine of 19) were Philip Smith / Matthew Halstead from Nelson Fourth place with 39 points and £40 each were Sam Hardwick and George Flanagan also from Nelson There were many compliments from the contestants on the condition of the course, on the food and the service.  Many thanks to all who contributed to a very successful day.

Barrett Cup Final 2017

Barrett Cup Finalists 2017 This year's final saw two “has-beens” (their words –not mine!) of the Club square up in the shape of Jez Harding and Paul Pethybridge. The match produced a high standard of golf more reminiscent of their former years. It was a tight affair being all square through the first 4 holes though Jez should probably have had a slight lead after 3 putting the 3rd to only halve the hole. It was Paul who started to make the running winning both the 5th and 6th with pars to be two up. The par of the day came at the 8th when Pep’s second shot hit the bin on the 9th tee and flew across the green. He followed this up by thinning his chip but calmly rolled in the putt from 20 feet for a 4 and a half. Jez, despite this setback, pulled himself together to make a birdie down the 9th and only be one down. Peps then birdied the 11th to get back to two up but Jez was not done yet and won both the 15th and 16th to get the match back to all square. The turning point came on the 17th where Jez found the railway line off the tee so was one down playing the last. With Jez unable to make a birdie down the 18th Peps closed out the match for a 1 up victory and claim his second knockout trophy win of 2017. Well done to both on a great match played in excellent spirit.

Craven Herald 8-15 Champion

  This year's Craven Herald 8-15 Trophy Final was contested at the weekend between George Myles and Mick Riddiough. These two were well matched, both playing off 11, and this proved to be the case with the contest finally settled on the second extra hole. Both struggled for their best form over the first few holes leaving them level on the 5th tee. A succession of excellent pitch shots leading to 4 out of 5 pars on the remaining holes on the front 9 left George 3 up. However bunker problems on 11 and 12 for George allowed pars from Mick to reduced the match to 1. Both made par on the 13th and the match really came to life around amen corner. Mick had an excellent birdie on 14, sinking a twenty foot putt to level the match. He followed this by chipping in on the 15th to take the lead for the first time. With a decisive momentum shift in the air Mick hit the green on 16 to pile pressure on George. He responded with the shot of the match, a 4 iron which never left the 16th flag. Both missed birdie putts and Mick was still one up on 17. It was Mick's turn to find the green side bunker and a par from George left the match All Square on the 18th tee. A 15 foot putt by Mick for par left George with a 5 foot knee knocker to prolong the match. He drained this and we walked back to the 1st. Both made pars on the first extra hole. Mick's recovery from 3 down was based on a succession of excellent tee shots, this made it all [...]
