You will be aware that the government has ordered a month-long virus protection lockdown from Thursday 5th November. The committee have studied the guidelines contained in the government paper, https://www.gov.uk/guidance/new-national-restrictions-from-5-november, and have concluded that the club cannot operate normally during this lockdown period. As a responsibly organised club, we must be seen to be obeying the rules.
On Tuesday 3 November, the normal Tuesday meeting will operate, but all further meetings will be suspended until 2nd December or a later date if the lockdown is extended.
The Autumn Cup Competition will be postponed, and a new competition schedule will be devised and published later.
This was a medal round in which a tee-shot coming to rest on the green earns the player a star. It is 2 competitions in one.
The dismal weather generally put a dampener on the scoring but Keith Brown overcame the conditions with a net 4-under par to win the medal section.
Roger Stevens (H'cap 2) succeeded in finding the green 7 times well ahead of his nearest rival.
Brian Silverwood's score of 51 (gross 66) easily led the field in this medal competition, 2 shots clear of his nearest rival. A net eagle on the 4th and 4 birdies balanced by 4 bogies gained him this impressive score and a sizable handicap cut.
This was the first medal played under the new restrictive Covid-19 rules. Neither that nor the blustery wind prevented general good scoring. Two-thirds of the field were plus1 or better, but no-one came near to Simon Dewhurst's 6-under net par, 3 shots clear of the field.
