Ken Bird Trophy

On Sunday in blustery wind and warm sunshine representatives from all sections played for the Ken Bird Trophy. A strong team was put out to hopefully improve on our runners up position last year. Alas, we did our very best but the junior team averaged just over 36 points and retained the trophy. Congratulations to them all.

However, the highlight of the day.... ⛳️⛳️⛳️⛳️HOLE IN ONE !!!! for Pat Ward on 17th.

It was drinks all round (thanks Les).

Also at the weekend Rogie Taylor represented Chesfield Downs Ladies at Rookery Park GC in Lowestoft in the Bridgestone Chase Your Dreams Eastern Region Final.

Having her husband along side to caddy, as did her two fellow playing partners, Rogie said " It was a great experience on a lovely course, a bit nerve racking being individual medal. Golf started well but didn't last".

Charity Day - 15th June
Check out the notice board for information regarding the next major event. Sign up sheets for volunteers, halfway house, hole sponsorship and play will be up on the board this week.

Take That Tribute Night

Double on the Yellows - Winner with 51 points Vicky Thompson. Runner up Diane Chapman with 49 points.

May Stableford - Winner of division 1 Vicky Thompson with 36 points and winner of division 2 Denise Clinch with 40 points. They are now eligible to pair up for the England Golf Trust pairs competition in August. We await to see if combined score of 76 is enough to qualify- fingers crossed.
