WILSON CUP

Dear all,

Thank you to all who participated to the Wilson Cup on Sunday 1st May 2022, another good entry which ensured a decent donation to St Barnabas Hospice of £72.00 (£1 from each entry fee).

Congratulations and well done to Dean Creasey who won the Wilson Cup with a great score of 39 points beating Andy Craft into 2nd place with a respectable 38 points.  

All results and prize winnings have been published in the Gents section of the Club Website and all winnings will be credited onto individual accounts in the shop.

Next week sees the Pro Shop Stableford which has been enhanced as a qualifier for The Sir Henry Lunn Shield in which the best 2 Nett scores will accompany the Club Vice Captain, Nige Saunders to represent Blankney Golf Club in this prestigious event.  The event is a 36 hole Stableford Competition held at Ashby Decoy Golf Club on Sunday 17th July 2022 and is a Team plus an Individual Competition.  There are however conditions attached to this Competition and all players must have a maximum handicap index of 12.4 so the 2 qualifiers from The Pro Shop Stableford must fit this criteria for qualification purposes.

The Pro Shop Stableford will only be used as this qualifier for 2022 and from 2023 onwards, the competition which will be used as this qualifier will be the Lombard Qualifier as this has lost its qualification status.

Hope you're all having a good Bank Holiday weekend.

Cheers, Paul
