How lucky were we with a fantastic sunny day in October? Preferred lies were helping although some of our fairways were still wet after the torrential rain at the beginning of the week. Interesting that only 4 two’s were scored on the day and all the prize winners had a two on 16th hole. Congratulations to the winners from Bacup with 81 points: Jane Phillips, Sharon Brown, Margaret Rush and Christine Nuttall. I believe the pork pie at the halfway hut made all the difference… Clitheroe’s Val Fairless, Deborah Catlow, Mary Singleton and Tracey Bentley came second with 79 points. Bentham’s team of Carole Capstick, Judy Lovett, Margaret Hird and Helen Sharrod secured third prize with 77 points. Thank you to all players for the positive feedback and we hope to see you all again at one of our Opens in 2022.
A mixed day weather wise with a mixture of sun, rain, hail and snow. 100 golfers were entered. The early starters got the best of the conditions with the winners being first out and the second pair coming from the second group. Winners with a score of 49 points, after 27 points on the front line, were regulars Alan Coughlan and Dave Attwood from the Manor Golf Club. Second place, with 48 points, were George Rutherford and Allan Parker from Gotts Park Golf Club in Leeds. Their score was boosted by 2 two's on the back nine. Third with 43 points, after a count back, were Vincent Rose and Peter Morris from Crosland Heath who just beat Martin Wane and Ray Swales from Barnard Castle and Romanby, both in N.E.England.
Our Seniors’ Open, originally planned for November 2020, then March 2021 finally went ahead on 15th April with glorious sunshine. It was worth the wait! The winners were a pairing from Scarcroft, Messrs Barrett and Hall who scored 46 points in the 4BBB Stableford competition. Second just a point behind were the Skipton newcomers, Mick Dobson and Mick Hawksworth and third prize went to Bryan Schofield and Nigel Clough from Cleckheaton and Hanging Heaton respectively with 43 points. Well done to the winners and we hope you all enjoyed your day.
