As a result of the agronomist’s report and the subsequent members meeting, it was decided that the following work will take place this September:-
Ryder Cup At Gathurst 18/8/2017 : Result: Gathurst 6 Dean Wood 3
The Ryder Cup is an annual match played between Gathurst & Dean Wood.
The Ryder Cup is a trophy put up by Doctor Ryder a member of Dean Wood to be played each year between the Juniors of Dean Wood and Gathurst. The trophy is in memory of his young son who sadly died after a long illness, almost 20 years ago. It has been played for ever since and is a highlight of the Junior calendar.
We regained the trophy after a two year gap.
Players (left to right): Alex Priestley, Josh Slater, Dan Ainscough (Vice Captain), Bradley Ainscough and Oliver Duffy. Missing from the photo, Matt Lynch (Junior Captain).
The ladies held a very successful Open on Friday 4th August with 41 teams of four entered. The weather was very kind to us and everyone seemed to enjoy the day. There were some excellent scores as follows:
- The first prize winners were K Clarkson, G Pashley, H Noblett and J Lockwood, who all play at Penwortham, with a score of 94 points
- In second place were S Forshaw (Gathurst), L Owen (Hindley), J Howells (Haigh Hall) and D Eyres (Great Lever) with a score of 89 points
- In third place were J Seddon, T Yates, C Williams and P Galloway, who all play at Wigan, with a score of 85 points.
We are holding two team events in 2018, Friday 4th May and Friday 3rd August, and look forward to meeting you all again. The entry sheets will shortly be available via the website or by ringing the office on 01257 255235.
July has been a difficult month with lots of comps, staff absence due to holidays and disease.
The classic rock and blues band Slyder will be performing at the Summer Steak Night (Saturday 12th August, 6:45pm for 7:30pm).
Tickets (£17 each) will sell fast, don’t miss out.
Congratulations to the Gathurst Victory Trophy team for winning the Hubert Powell Trophy for the best Nett score.
This was a fantastic victory for the team.
Congratulations go to:-
Who won the Scratch Cup with a score over the two days of 140, beating Dave McMullan on a card play-off.
Who won the Keith Haigh Memorial Trophy with a combined nett score of 130.
With Mr. Captain’s Day behind us, we are now busy preparing the course for the Scratch Cup and the other majors that fall in July.
Gathurst golfers Andy Halladay, Craig Hurley, Dave Wilcock (PGA Pro), and Jamie Elliott won the Crosby Beacon Trophy at West Lancs G.C. They shot a fantastic score of 216 (level par), beating Hillside G.C. by one shot.
Well played guys.
