'Par 3' 9 Hole, Academy Course
Success for Simon in Par 3 Championship - Dec 2018
The much deferred Men's 2018 Par 3 Academy Course Championship, finally took place on Sunday.
Whilst the field was perhaps somewhat reduced due to the event being played in winter instead of summer, the competition for the podium places was as intense as ever. Some impressive scores were recorded over the 9 holes and two players even managed to break the course par of 28.
In 3rd place with a very respectable Net 25.6 was Steve Coppock
Runner-up with a gross 27 and Net 25 was John Haines
but the overall winner with a Gross 27 and Net 23 was Simon Cavill
Well done to all those who took part - and if you've never played in this Full Board Competition, look out for the 2019 event - which will hopefully be played much earlier in the year than it was this time!
Academy Course Championship - Results
The Academy Course Championship (a 'Board' competition) which took place on Saturday 10th June was a closely contested competition played in blustery conditions. This made it hard to play accurate iron shots to the tight greens and it caught many out, resulting in scores which were not what some might have hoped for. Indeed, only one player managed to get round the 9 holes under par gross, but more of him shortly.
In 3rd place with a net 26.3 was Past Captain Kevin Dunbar
In 2nd place with a Net 26.0 was Clive Resch
but this year's winner was Steve Lay with a Gross 27 (1 under Par) and Net 24.3. Well done to all three for their impressive performances and congratulations to Steve.
