The Baxter Trophy Mixed Texas Scramble 2018
Runners Up - 32.63 net strokes (39 gross)   The Winning Team - 32.44 net strokes (39 gross)

Apart from the weather it was a very enjoyable day.

The competition was reduced to 9 holes because of the weather.

Congratulations to the winning team of Chris Thomas, Sue Moynihan, Dan Deery and Richard Snook with a net score of 32.44 strokes. The runners up were Jane Carter, Mary Saunders, John Moynihan and Alf Scott less than one quarter of a shot behind the winners.

The full set of results can be found below left.

The suggestion is that next year we hold the event on a Thursday, which traditional is a better day for weather -  according to the Ladies!

Many congratulations to Laurie Morse for winning the Kim Short Trophy. Laurie scored 36 points, winning on countback from Roger Smith. 

And with only 4 clubs and a putter - who needs to lug around 14 clubs !! Well done Laurie

2017/18 Eclectic (Thomson Cup) Result

Congratulations to Malcolm Lucas on winning the 2017/18 Eclectic competition with a score of 65.6 shots. Malcolm missed the final round, so sweated it out whilst the other contenders tried to improve their scores.

It was a close run thing with Laurie Morse in second place scoring 65.95, Howard Somerville in 3rd scoring 66.3 and Paul Buchanon 4th with 66.35. So the first 4 places were separated by just 0.75 of a shot -  just think of those short putts missed guys !!!

Well done Malcolm - the second time in four years that he has won the Eclectic.


2017/18 Highwaymen Winter Pairs result

Congratulations to Terry Kilbane and Tony Tilly on defeating Gerald and Maurice in the final of the Winter Pairs. It was a close run match - being decided on the 17th green.
