2016 Senior's Away-Day - Burton GC

On a lovely fine, crisp morning, the 44 members of the Seniors team set out with good heart, and high hopes! In the event, after a great day of high drama, everyone arrived back at the Club house in some astonishment, as the greens had beaten us all. The course was fair, and in great shape, but only a smattering could really read the greens and their subtleties. Most people got where they wanted to go in the requisite number of shots, but could we get the ball to enter the hole? 

The individual winner was Bob Gay, with a magnificent 39 points, and his name will go on to the Captains Trophy, although he was not there long enough to collect it. In 2nd place came Richard Blasdale (on countback) from David Johns who both scored 33 points. 

The team prize was won by Richard Blasdale and his team of David Mosley, Stan Birch and Doug Money, who scored round about 90 points. 

In the nearest the pin competitions, David Johns won the easiest Nearest-the-pin on the 6th, Colin MacMillan won the most difficult prize by getting on the 18th in 2 shots, and Peter Levenger won the prize for going over the water and landing on the green in 3, also at the 18th. If I mention David John's name again, I will be accused of favouritism, but he also went off with a bunch of balls for scoring the only 2.

A super day out, beautifully organised by the Captain, Brian Warren, and his committee of a couple more. May I also say that It was great to see Geoff Chaplin after his recent bereavement, and we all wish Chris Mosley, (still in hospital), the very best after her operation on her knee.
