On a warm but very breezy day SRGC was pleased to welcome 51 teams, 204 payers, to our Best 2 from 4 Open Am-Am, although to make it more challenging & interesting the best 3 scores counted on holes 16, 17 & 18. Visitors came from far & wide and one group of very regular visitors to SRGC again travelled from Essex and were rewarded by returning the outstanding score of the day with 104 points. These were closely followed by a group of SRGC members with 101 points.
Many thanks to our Greens Staff, Gareth & his team are as always doing an amazing job to present our course in such great condition, the greens were firm, fast and true and the rough has been well managed to be extremely challenging without being impossible to play from. Thanks also to all our catring staff led by Cris & Lys for the food enjoyed by many, and to Viv in the halfway house.
Nearest the pin on the 17th was won by Lee Coles from Links GC woth an excellent shot in the very brisk crosswind conditions. Nearest the pin in 3 on the par 5 16th resulted in an eagle 3 from SRGC's Eddie Plant, who clealry will now be known as Eddie the Eagle for ever more. Whilst generally hitting a reasonably long ball Eddie's 3rd shot was from around 145 yards, no simple tap in putts or chips from the edge of the green for him!!
Visitors who won prizes but were not at the presentation will have accounts created for them in the SRGC pro shop allowing you to select whatever you wish, please contact Angus on 01476-530218 to arrange redemption.
We look forward to seeing many of you again at future events at Stoke Rochford GC. One date to note is our Gents 36 Hole Individual Medal on Sunday 18th August. Details can be found here on our website.
