Weekending May 26th.

Tuesday 21st May

Thanks to Keith Wright for today’s report.

23 golfers went out to play the Roll Up Stableford in dry conditions with a little wind. The top scores were 36 – this was shared by 4 golfers, split between divisions 0ne and two.

There was confusion on what we were playing today – some thought it was a Bogey. The Events Diary was plain to read the Roll Up Stableford.

Division 1

1st place a.c.b. was John Adkins with 36 points.

2nd place a.c.b. came Bill Murray with 36 points.

3rd place was Peter King with 34 points.

Division 2

1st place a.c.b. was Dougie Morton with 36 points.

2nd place a.c.b. came Pete Chippendale with 36 points.

3rd place was Barry Searles with 34 points.

2’s Competition

It was a good day to get a 2 –

congratulations to Dougie Morton. Who scored on the 16th.

WOOLFOX Seniors Captain 2024



Thursday 23rd May

Not a good turn out today, just 9 members arrived for the 3 clubs and a putter, 2 from 3 stableford. This gave us just 3 teams.

After the torrential rain had fallen over Monday, the day dawned overcast but brightened towards the end of the round. Competition was close as everyone got used to only using three clubs and a putter! Scoring 2 from 3 usually leads to a winner in the 80’s but the wind played havoc and the 4 clubs proved difficult.

Club selection was not too good, judging by the individual scores, with only two players breaking 30 points.  Melvin Baker and Graham Purslow.

The results follow ……

Winning team were

Tom Byrne, Bill Collins and Nick Lewis with 66 points.

            R/U Bill Murray, Melvin Baker and John Hastings with                63 points a.c.b.

             3rd were Graham Purslow, Malcolm Hird and Keith Wright             with 63 points a.c.b.


2’s Competition

There were no 2’s today.

Best Front 9 with 19 points was Graham Purslow.

Best Back 9 with 17 points was Melvin Baker with 17 points.


Summer Knockout Doubles

Malcolm Mann and Andrew Boyce beat John Adkins and Charlie Laverty on the 19th Hole. John and Charlie having been behind most of the round drew level at the 18th but failed to get across the lake on the 1st second time around leaving Malcolm and Andrew with the easy task of completing the win in this closely fought contest.


Sharron Leaves Woolfox.

Sharron Beasley is moving on to pastures new. Sharron who has been the mainstay of the Range Cafe since our move to the Golf Hub leaves today. The Seniors thanked Sharron for she has done for them over the last few years.

Andrew Boyce commented, “Sharron has looked after us showing how to operate the new computer system and being responsible for setting up competitions and looking after us when we go wrong. She will be sadly missed by one and all.”

Andrew stated that through the generosity of the Seniors we had been able to give Sharron the Patio Parasol she wanted together with £100 of garden vouchers, flowers and bottles of wine. Sharron, who used to help her brother with is landscape gardening business will spend the next few weeks busily working in her garden. Many thanks for all your guidance and help Sharron and we wish you well.
