Angus Dow Retirement Best 2 from 4 Stableford

An absolutely fabulous day was enjoyed by all 120 players, 30 teams playing in a Shotgun start Best 2 from 4 Stableford. We were extremely nervous about having so many teams, 25 having been seen as pretty much the maximum you'd ever want for a shotgun start, but with the help of all playing, most teams completed their rounds within 4 hours 15 to 4 hours 30, very acceptable timings for such a competition.

The lovely winter sunshine helped of course although the intense winds, strong enough to make my own ball oscillate and then move sideways a couple of inches on one of the flattest greens on our course made life pretty difficult and undoubtedly affected everyone's scores. As always massive credit to Gareth Austin & our Greens staff for preparing the course in such a great condition, amazing job guys.

But basically, no one worried about the challenges on the course. We were there to help Angus celebrate his retirement after more than 35 years at SRGC. It was a superb occasion, with past & present Members & Guests chatting with Angus afterwards having enjoyed a lovely meal provided by Cris, Lys & their staff, and then listening to a number of entertaining speeches made by Club President Mr Neil McCorquodale, Club Captain Simon Mulvey, Club Chairman Adrian Stannard and of course Angus himself. I noticed quite a few Members who appeared to have "something in my eye" as Angus spoke warmly about the friends he'd made and the many experiences he'd had during his tenure, whilst commenting that 30 players out of the 120 playing today were already SRGC Members on his first day at the club in January 1985. 

During the speeches, Club Captain Simon Mulvey presented Angus with a PING golf bag and some PING vouchers, both donated by PING themselves, and informed Angus that monies raised at the event by entry fees and the raffle, along with a small subsidy direct from the club, will be used to replace Angus' golf clubs, since the irons he is currently using actually predate him joining SRGC!!

The competition results seemed fairly irrelevant given the reason we were all there, but for anyone interested, the full results can be seen here, Angus' own team earning a creditable 4th place. 

Thank you to everyone who contributed by playing, helping or just "being there" on the day, but most of all a huge THANK YOU to Angus for everything he has done for us, we wish you well in your ongoing business activities and know we will be seeing you around SRGC regularly both playing and helping out where you can.

Eighty seven entered the 2s club, sadly for one of the 4 players not entering he recorded a 2, that left 15 other players each receiving £5.80 again already paid into competition wallets.

Angus Dow Retirement Best 2 from 4 Stableford Start Sheet

Here are the starting tees for this weekend's major event, a Best 2 from 4 Stableford to help Angus celebrate his retirement after more than 35 years service to Stoke Rochford GC. Shotgun start at 09:00, 90% allowance, Ladies play against their own card & stroke indices.

Start sheet

Please be in the clubhouse by 08:15 to socialise, buy raffle tickets, hear any last minute instructions and collect your pre-printed scorecards.

With such a large field some delays are inevitable but it was important to the Management bBoard that as many as possible were able to join Angus on the day. Food and presentations should commence around about 14:30 or soon after.

I imagine the car park will be quite busy, especially as quite a few people will join for the presentations only, if possible pleae travel with another player (or two) and be sure to take great care.

Tuesday Winter Open Rollup Round #3

Fifty eight players entered the 3rd round of the Tuesday Winter Open Rollup Series, the earlier players enduring difficult conditions after a very heavy frost made the greens rock hard so holding them was impossible and putting was also rather challenging. With a cloudless sky the sun eventually thawed the frost and things improved resulting in a beautiful day with no wind and near perfect conditions thanks to our free draining course that remains fully open when many others locally are suffering. SRGC really is "A course for all Seasons".

Winning scores :-

  • 1st place nett  :  Kevin Smith (Belton Park GC)  38 points  playing off 23
  • 2nd place nett  :  Mark Elce (Norwood Park GC)  36 points (back 9 c/b)  playing off 17
  • 3rd place nett  :  Don Werner (SRGC)  36 points (back 9 c/b)  playing off 16

Full results can be seen here

Next round is on Tuesday 18th February, we look forward to seeing many of you again.
