Olton Cup & Bowl


A glorious day at Olton, the sun was shining brightly and The Course was in magnificent condition, with many favourable comments from Members & Guests alike. The Greens in particular were very special on the day enjoyed by all that played. Comments like 'these are the best greens I've ever played on were not uncommon'

Well done to Mark and his Team for presenting the Course in such good order.

The Olton Cup - Net Competition

The Olton Bowl - Gross Competition

Was won by Joe Macilwraith playing off plus 3, now plus 4, with two truly awesome rounds of Golf. 65 & 65, beating the field by a clear 11 shots. It was the best combined score (130) in the Competitions history. To equal the The New Course record back to back is some achievement.

Joe becomes Midland Open Champion

Joe becomes Midland Open Champion.

After the disappointment of missing the cut at the Welsh Open Joe bounced back brilliantly to take the Midland Open Amateur strokeplay championship. His four round total of 279 three under par took the title by 4 shots. The Championship began with all players playing a round at both Northants County and Northampton Golf Club with 40 players advancing to play the last two rounds at Northants County. Joe started with a level par 70 at NC and followed this with a brilliant 5 under par 67 at N. Giving him a 2 shot lead to take into the final 2 rounds at NC. The putter went cold in the third round resulting in a 3 over 73 leaving Joe a shot behind playing partner Leon Leaney of Woodhall Spa but a very solid 1 under 69 gave Joe the title.
