Well done Sheena Perry and Abbie Downton who won their 1st round of the Young Cup away against Dereham 3 and 2.
On Wednesday 27th April the Barnham Broom Barnard team lead by Jerry Bart (non playing) entertained the team from Caldicott Hall golf club and won by 11 holes. Team comprised of Chris Bullimore and Chris Carey, Dave Ashmore and Roger Human, Graham Head and Steve Webster and Barrington Reynolds and Tony Lynne. This team face an away match at Feltwell or Fakenham in the next round in June.
Roger Human Men’s Captain.
The Barnham Broom Cullington team lead by Roger Garwood (non playing) entertained the team from Wensum Valley on Sunday 24th April 2016 and won by 23 holes overall. The Barnham Broom team comprising of Andy Stothard and Phil Law, Andrew Felice and Robbie Watts, Richard Severn and Tony Lynne, Paul Greaves and Keith Parker acquitted themselves extremely well in chilly and blustery conditions especially by being 20 holes ahead by lunchtime. This was helped immensely by Andy and Phil being up in their game by 10 holes after 10!!!! As expected the Wensum team rallied round in the afternoon and played a little better by only being 3 down at the end of the afternoon. So into the next round in an away match at Mattishall on June 19th. This squad showed early signs of some good team spirit and a really solid performance from those players, especially Phil who came into the team at a very late stage, thereby allowing the Men’s Captain off the hook!!!
As regards to the Myhill squad, they have a further bye in the second round as Weston Park has withdrawn from the competition.
Roger Human Captain.
The Ladies 2nd team had a convincing 5/2 victory against Sprowston ladies on Monday 25th April. Well done ladies and a big well done to Chris Head who achieved a hole in one on the 14th.
Biggest field of the year so far – 92 golfers took part in what was some trying conditions – sleet, rain , hail and the odd period of sunshine for this month’s stableford.
The Hill Course was certainly in excellent condition with the greens running quick and true – a big thank you to Brian and his Greenkeeping team.
Conditions sent the CSS up 2 strokes to 73 with the 4th hole bearing its’ teeth yielding just 7 pars and a birdie.
Division 1 saw Nick Lamb and Josh Bartlett come in with 36 points apiece – an excellent score given the conditions. Countback was required to determine 2nd and 3rd places with Nick squeezing into the runner-up spot. Out in front with a superb 39 points was Jonathan Hinton who wins the Division (and now heads up the RTB Order of Merit) – congratulations Jonathan.
In Division 2 , Countback was again in force to separate Mark Staz, Graham Monk and Rob Young who all had 36 points to see who got 3rd place, with the latter taking the honours. In second place was Peter Hall with a fine total of 37 points. Taking the Division and the overall stableford (again on countback) was Paul Dodman with another superb 39 points. Well played Paul and congratulations.
Next up is the Medal on the 8th of May – remember if you would like to play outside the designated competition tee times you can as along as your tee time is booked at least 24 hours in advance, you state that you are playing in the competion, and all the players in the group must play in the competition. Signing in would be via the Golf Shop. Can we top 92 entrants? I bet we can!
There was a small gremlin with the points allocated – apologies. Here are the revised awards:
