The 2017 Club Championship was played in ideal weather conditions on a course beautifully presented and playing even better. We had a superb turnout of 48 players!
We had a very exciting result with Joe Macilwraith and Liam Phipps tieing on 142. This is the first time in memory there has been a tie and the Championship went into a 3-hole playoff down the 3rd, 4th & 5th
With most of the playing field watching the climax of the day where Joe played in 2 under par winning 2 of the holes to become our 2017 Champion.
As an incentive to improve on his morning round our Professional Charles Haynes offered Joe a rather splendid golf bag which he’d been eyeing up in the shop if he won. You can see our President Gary Carroll presenting the tour bag along with the trophy in the photo.
In 3rd place was Mike Pell, one shot behind on 143.
John Hart won the 6 – 9 HC group and Nigel Bain the 10 – 15 HC group.
Another great day at Olton Golf Club!
