Discoll Sheppard Results
Seventy nine players entered the Discoll Sheppard Cup, a Medal open to both Ladies & Gents although sadly only 1 Lady entered, thank you Philippa!

Extra Stableford Results
On a day that threatened heavy showers but turned out generally better, 82 players entered the Extra Stableford. The course was playing tougher than usual after the extensive preparation done by our Greens Staff for the Midland Youth Championships staged last week, as a result scoring was perhaps a little lower than usual with a couple of 38 point returns leading the way.
Winners, Prize Distribution & 2s Club info :-
Plenty of competitions coming up over the next few weeks so keep a close watch on the website diary for up to date information.
Peter Bloodworth Shotgun Foursomes Results
Last Sunday 31 pairs played in the Shotgun Foursomes starting at 07:00 followed by an excellent Full nglish breakfast served in the clubhouse byt Cris, Lis and their staff. Scoring was fairly ordinary for most teams but one pairing found the fairway and holed the putts to come in with a stunning nett 66.

Pictured with Club Captain James Footitt and the Famous Grouse Trophy are winning pair Neil Tee-Boon & Rob Griffin.
To all Members I do hope you are all keeping well and are enjoying your golf.
I am writing to let you know what I am planning for my Captain's Weekend 24th/25th July.
On Saturday 24th, there will be a 4 Ball Better Ball Stableford Comp with 2 scores to count on each hole, all members can play £5 per person to enter. Book a Tee Time as normal on BRS, enter and pay via the pro shop as usual. Completed cards to be handed into the pro-shop following completion of the round.
On Sunday 25th the tee will be open for members booking via BRS until 11.30am. There will be a singles Stableford Competition, usual entry requirements via the club system £3 entry fee. Completed scores to be entered onto the system as normal.
After 11.30am I am inviting my guests to come and play to support my weekend. The tee will open again for members after the guests at around 1.30pm but there will be no entry to the competition after this time as prizes will need to be decided and awarded by late afternoon.
The half-way house will be open as normal all weekend manned by Viv. On both Saturday & Sunday free Coffee, Tea and Squash will be available to all members playing in the comps. A glass of beer will also be available to those who fancy something stronger,
Following play being completed on Sunday at approx. 17-30hrs, David Edwards will be holding his trick show on the first hole. David & I have become great friends over many years so for him to bring his show to the club is absolutely fantastic. David will be on the course throughout Sunday so please feel free to speak with him
All those playing on Sunday and those members who would like to come up to watch David’s Trick Shot show are welcome. The club are supporting my day by running a BBQ all day for everyone to have some food, Cris and the team I am sure will do a brilliant job looking after all of us.
I will present prizes after David has completed his show on Sunday, the BBQ will run all day so I do hope you will join me, please come along relax and enjoy my Captains weekend with me.
