Little Aston 28.11.18 - Results 

prev next

On Monday, 7 - 8mm of rain was forecast for Tuesday,  prompting a serious conversation with the club manager, Iain Burns about the viability of golf on Wednesday.  After consulting our course manager David, I was told that the course could easily cope with the rain and the event could go ahead.  They were right!  The greens were super and apart from the odd bunker harbouring some standing water, the course was fine too.

We certainly got away with the weather,  as the only period of unpleasant rain only lasted the time it took to play three holes.  The wind was variable in both speed and direction making it tricky to judge distances accurately.

Nevertheless, eighty two players enjoyed themselves, summed up by a kind email from Ian Sutcliffe, an eleven handicapper from Taunton & Pickeridge who came all the way from the West Country with his party:

“Good morning Tony. Just a quick note on behalf of my team of four regarding yesterday, to say that we all thoroughly enjoyed a very well organised day and playing a very good course despite the weather conditions, and look forward to playing again in the future.”

It was good to see Alan McPeake playing again,  after a period off-games following surgery to his foot.  To keep fit while away from golf,  Alan has been tending the garden, which stood him in good stead on Wednesday,  as he spent more time with a rake in his hand than a golf club.

Despite losing a shot each for a previous win, Alan Freeman(5) and Alan Wrigley(3) were still close to the prize table with a creditable 40 points.

5th to 8th place was hotly contested on 41 points with Tony Davis(14) and Alan Holmes(11) having the best, 21-point, back-nine.

Forest of Arden’s Mike Myers(10) & Tony Butler(20) edged Scott Harris(5) and Mike Phillips (3) into 4th place with a better back nine and 42 points.

Teetours virgins Nick Ghislanzoni(4) and Dean Barratt(17) from Horsley Lodge, were 2nd with 43 points.

However, The Leisure Boys are back on form! 

Teetours war-horses Tim Worley(12) and Phil Beswick(8) took top spot on the podium with 44 points.  And it gave me great pleasure to present them with their prizes as they are gentlemen,  who did not utter one word of complaint about having to play as a two-ball in the middle of a four-ball field because Lee Pugh and partner Mike Critchlow from Aston Wood failed to turn up.

Also failing to turn up was Kevin Sheffield from Glen Gorse.  All three are not welcome at any future events.  

It was always my intention to run Teetours as a golf society for courteous golfers who play in the true spirit of the game.  Very occasionally, but sadly,  I have to ban players for ungentlemanly conduct,  including non attendance without notification or apology.
