Mens' Scratch Team Go 5 Points Clear
With a great 5½ - 2½ win at South Staffs today the Mens' Scratch League Team have moved 5 points clear of their nearest challengers in Division 1. With only positive points scored in away matches this is a big lead, even though the other five teams have played less matches. Our team have two matches left, the return fixure against South Staffs at home on Tuesday 18th July then Harbourne at home on Wednesday 2nd August. Olton last won Division 1 in 1991 so hopefully it will be a big night for celebration on 2nd August.
Scratch Run Continues
The Men's Scratch League team continued their winning run with a convincing 7-1 home defeat of Enville thus achieving the double over them this season. This win maintains a 3 point advantage over their closest challengers. With only positive points scored in away matches this is a significant lead. Olton have only three more matches, the next one being away at South Staffs this Sunday 9th July, Although the other five teams in the top division have played less games Olton continue to be the team to beat.
CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP – Magnificent Macilwraith again!
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!
