Club Texas Scramble - Any Combination - Sunday 8th August 2021

Dear all,

Thank you to all who entered this weekends Club Texas Scramble (Any Combination) Sunday 8th August 2021.

Congratulations to the winning Team of:

A Craft, D Marriott, W Schofield & B Hayes who won with an impressive Nett 58, well done Gents.

The Florida Texas Scramble was a new format which was met with mixed reviews, some enjoyed it and some didn't which will unfortunately always be the case, you can never please everyone.  I appreciate all comments and am happy to take them on board and am happy to discuss initiatives and ideas to increase the numbers of golfers who wish to play in competitions.  I would, however, prefer it if people would speak to me about such matters rather than sitting in their groups moaning to each other.  Everyones opinion counts and if someone has something constructive to say, let's have a conversation to get the competitions right for the Members and the Club which is something we all want.

The next competition is the Michael Parker Cross Country Challenge, starting at 17:00 hours and this event is followed by a BBQ which is also open to non golfers.  There is still time to enter this prestigious event and entries can be made through the Pro Shop.  Non Golfers can also purchase tickets for the BBQ afterwards.  Let's make this a great social event to support our Club President, Michael Parker.

Cheers, Paul

Club Open Am-Am Sunday 1st August 2021

Gents,

Thank you to all who played in the Gents Am-Am on Sunday 1st August 2021.  

It was great to see a full field with all slots taken by Members and Visitors in what was the first Gents Open post Covid and it was pleasing to hear all of the positive comments about the condition of the course and thanks go to John and the Greenkeeping team for their efforts.  It was also nice to see so many people in the Clubhouse enjoying the refreshments pre and post round so thanks also to the bar and catering Team for looking after us all.

Congratulations to the visiting Team of T Smith, S Turnell, L Field & S Carn from Gedney Hills who won the competition with an impressive score of 100 points beating their nearest rivals, M Davies, P Stothard, B Jaffrey & M Mackenzie from Belton Park by 5 points.  3rd place went to B Graham, R McGrath, A Barker & J Bush from Holme Hall GC also on 95 points, getting beat by a BB3 on countback.  Teams from Blankney filled the remaining prize spots and they were, in 4th place T Scutt, J Skeet, D Wise & M McKinstry with 94 points followed closely by A Long, M Ceconi, A Akenga & M Fish (Gainsborough GC)

Other prize winners of the day were Mike Barton, NTP on 7, Manuel Ceconi NTP on 10, R Hodgkins (Wollaton Park) NTP on 13 and Daz Pigford NTP on 16.  G Robinson of Messingham Grange won the longest drive on the 18th and I'm sure all who played will have been impressed when they finally reached the marker, we measured it at 347 (Good Drive Sir)

As always, results will be posted in the Gents section of the club website and Blankney Club Members will be able to collect their prizes from the Pro Shop and the Visitors will have theirs posted out to them.

Next weekend we have a Club Florida Texas Scramble which is open to all sections of the Club and any combination can be used, spaces are fast filling up so if you haven't yet entered please do so at your earliest convenience in order to avoid disappointment.  Please also remember the Michael Parker Cross Country Challenge is taking place on Thursday 12th August and this will be followed by a BBQ.  Looking forward to a good turnout for this fun event, let's show our support to the Club President and make it a great evening.

Well done to Steve Penlington who won Fridays Midweek Stableford beating Chris Brown on count back with a BB9.

Thank you to all who participated in these competitions, your support is appreciated.

Please be aware that the club computer is now in operation and all players now need to input their own scores in after a round.  There were 7 players today who failed to do so and I have done this on their behalf.  For your information, I will not be doing so in the future as it is your responsibility.  If you are unsure of what is required, please ask and I'm sure your playing partners will assist.

The entry sheet is on the board for the Texas Scramble to be played on Sunday 8th August 2021, get your Teams in for this fun event and let's see a full entry.

Finally, the entry sheet is up for the Michael Parker Cross Country Challenge to be held on Thursday 12th August (The Glorious 12th) get your names down and let's make this a fabulous evening to show our support to the Club President.  Graham is working behind the scenes to organise this event and it's a fantastic opportunity for all members of the golf club, new and old to get involved in what I hope will be a well attended event.

Cheers, Paul
