Ladies Club Championship

The Ladies' Club Championship took place in beautiful sunshine on Wednesday 14th June. The course was immaculate thanks to the work of Mark Smith and his team.  Twenty-two ladies completed the 36 holes, the greatest number of entries in recent years which perhaps shows we are all getting fitter despite the aging process. The winner of the gross prize was Christina Kennedy with 168. Gross runner up was Hilary Dixon with176. The nett trophy was won by Heather Miller with a nett 144, runner up being Annette Bucknall, nett 149.  Three ladies secured the twos prizes and Jane Frith won the best back 9 on countback with 45. Congratulations to our new champion, Christina, and to all those who completed 36 holes, no easy task.

Another great result for the Men's Scratch League Team

Our Men's Scratch League team played their second Division 1 match of this season at Harborne on Monday 5th June.  Another tough match, as away ones normally are, but a great result with a 4-4 draw.  It could have been even better but the last two matches lost at the last hole.  Still early days but this puts Olton clear at the top of the table on +3 points.  The next match is home to Drayton Park this Thursday 8th June.  The team will welcome all support.

Club Junior Championship

The 36 holes Junior Championship was held on Friday 2nd June with three trophies at stake.  The field was small with 8 players but the quality was good with some excellent scores considering the greens were still as they were for the Warwickshire Amateur Championship the day before.  Josh Beer set the target with the best morning round of 71 gross, net 61 followed by Jon Chapman 73 gross, net 64 and Reece Wyatt 76, net 65.  Seven of the eight players recorded net scores equal to or better than standard scratch.

In the afternoon round Jon Chapman led the way with a score of 75 gross, net 66 followed by Josh Beer 77 gross, net 67 and James Bowen 75 gross, net 70 resulting in a tie for the best gross champions trophy with 148 between Jon and Josh with Jon taking it on the back 18.  Josh easily won the Division 1 net trophy with 128. The Division 2 net trophy was won by Harrison Porter with 143.
