Winter League Review
The Winter League continues to throw up some great scores and this Saturday it was the deadly duo of Steve Bond and Steve Nicholson that combined well to score 26 points, Steve Bond contributed three birdies whilst Steve Nicholson chipped in with three important pars on shot holes and the score will catapult them up the overall standings. In second place were Jonnon Ness and Stuart Gray with 24 points including a birdie on the fifth hole and third place went to Steve Holehouse and Gemma Davies on 23 points, amazingly there were 17 pairs that scored 20 points or more!
Here are the top four pairs after four rounds:
1. Jonno Ness & Stuart Gray 93 points
2. James Eaton & Julie Danies 91 points
3. Antony Green & Dave Johnson 89 points
4. Tim Barnes & Chris Whalley 88 points

So we need your nominations in the following categories:
- Best dressed golfer of the year
- Bandit of the year
- Round of the year
- Hacker of the year
- Club thrower of the year
Please contact us here and let us know who you think should win these prestigious awards, winners will be announced in the New Year!
The ladies played a fun 9 hole Three Clubs and a putter challenge on Sunday afternoon, the winner with a great score of 20 points was Christine Paxton, Christine doesn't get to play that often but when she does she tends to do well with 2 wins and a runners up spot in her last three ladies competitions!
In second place was Wendy Lock on 16 points and third place went to Kath Hough also on 16 points.
The seniors played the third round of their Winter League on Tuesday morning, Pete Dawson certainly enjoyed his round as he scored an eagle on the first hole after holing his approach shot - this gave him five points on the first hole! He kicked on from there and parred eight of the next nine holes to score a very impressive 25 points - not bad for an 18 handicapper Mr. Dawson maybe he's making a bid for Bandit of the Year!
In second place was Alan Phillips with 22 points - that would've been good enough to win most weeks, in third place was Chris Coates on 19 points. In the overall standings Chris Lee is still top after three rounds.
