22 players in today’s Committee Cup comp @ Toot Hill GC on a very pleasant day with just a little wind. This annual competition is to recognise and thank members who, over the years, have served the section with such distinction.
We were delighted that we were able to welcome Karl Hepple, SbyN Golf Manager, to play with us - Karl has been extremely supportive of the section since his appointment to his current role and this guidance and advice has been very much appreciated.
The format of the day to be a singles stableford for the annual trophy and a team competition between the Captain’s team and Vice Captain’s team.
Star performance of the day was by Karl who, playing off scratch, achieved 38 stableford points but, since he has never served on the Seniors committee at any time .......... so far, declared that he should not qualify for any prizes.
In view of this 1st prize went to Paul Sandfield with 36 points edging out Allen Smith on count-back. Both members playing some of the best golf of their lives. In 3rd place came Bob Filer with 35 points beating John Wheatley on count- back.
The team award went to the VC Team with 332 points against the C team score of 324. Well done to all team members.
