Enville 4.12.18 - Results

prev next

Monday night was cold with a sharp frost but the early winter sunshine made my drive to Enville through the beautiful Staffordshire countryside a delight. 

We were fortunate to drop lucky with a dry day and with no brollies needed and the occasional pair of sunglasses in evidence, winter golf was good.

On arrival, I asked Wolves supporter Rich in the pro shop for the door code;

“1647” he said, then added “The last time Baggies won the cup”

I’m getting much better at lighting the wood burner in the clubhouse; this year no one was aware that I had done it - not even the lads at Stourbridge Fire Station!

The green staff were very busy removing self set trees and brash, allowing the growth of the heather that is a classic feature of all true heathland courses.  Carry the on the good work gentlemen!

Late call-up Gary Pickford arrived on the first after his team mates had teed-off and he was most impressed to see they were all on the green of the 150 yard par 3.  However, he wasn’t aware that they had all played 2.

Armani Dave Clark, that slave to golfing fashion, picked up the award for chump-team captain of the day as they left their score card on the breakfast table and then got lost on the course TWICE.

It was good to see the Knights and the Etchinghams making up a husband and wife team and coming in with a creditable 82 points.

On hole 3, nearest the pin in two went to Little Aston scratch player Dave Westwood and on hole 10, the longest drive was won by Little Aston’s James Bishop off plus one.  I am playing with both of them on Saturday in the monthly Stableford (I will not be playing them for money!!)

Andy Russell won hearest the pin on the par 3 17th.

In 5th place with 87 were David Middleton 10;  Andy Sewell 15; Moray Anderson 16 and Jon Cray 6

3rd and 4th places were decided on the back-six between two teams of good friends from Minchinhampton Golf Club. Both teams had 88.  Mike Williams came over to check my calculations, no less than three times, as he came to terms with being the losing skipper to Mil Petkovic. 

1st and 2nd places were also decided on a the back six with identical scores of 89.

2nd went to an amalgamated team: Alan Holmes15 & Tony Davis14 paired up with Mark Rose15 & Paul Morgan 12.  It wouldn’t surprise me to see them playing together again in the future.

Despite losing their team captain Tim Worley, The Leisure Boys of Kim Hughes 12, Phil Beswick 8, John Showell 16 Ian Williams 12 narrowly managed top spot on the podium. Phil Beswick had already lost a shot following his win at Little Aston last Wednesday but despite this he became to first Teetours winner on two consecutive events.

On a personal note, this week has been momentous for me. Exactly five years ago I was in the middle of combined, daily radio and chemotherapy, following thirteen and a half hours surgery to remove a stage four cancer tumour.  On Monday my surgeon gave me the all clear and signed me off.  I’m very sorry but it looks like you’re all going to have to put up with me for a bit longer.

Thanks for your support.
