Ashridge was playing at its absolute best for our visit this year even if the weather wasn’t quite as warm as predicted.
The scores reflected the benign conditions and the receptive greens. Please visit the members area of the website to see the Scores after 3 events
23 Members and 14 Guests had a great buffet lunch, enjoyed the beautifully presented golf course and devoured an excellent 3-course dinner.
Prizes were presented by Captain Neil Blundy and the recipients were well distributed amongst the assembled masses!!!
How the mighty have fallen. From winner of the Autumn Cup last year to – Well not quite such a great score – Joel Evans picked up the wooden spoon – He doesn’t seem too disappointed!!
Steven Barker won the Nearest the Pin on 16 – I hear that the golf ball didn’t get more than 3 ft off the ground – Great shot Steven!!!!! Winners of the Yellow Ball Competition on 39 Points, thanks partly to a magical birdie on the 9th for 4 points by guest Gerald Katseff and some general dovetailing, were the aforementioned with David Jenkins and Neil Meixner They looks as though they’re enjoying themselves!!!!
The Team Prize was the most hotly contested prize with three teams tying on 45 points. Winning out on countback, from Andrew Wiseman/Simon Marettwere and Ian Stevenson/John Biscoe, were Richard Hutchinson and his guest Stefan Spicer
Steven Barker’s Guest Tony Burchett picked up the guest prize with a magnificent 39 points
The coveted Finlinson Cup was won on countback, from new member George Skinner (cut 1), by Chris Anderson (cut 2). Congratulations to George who must be commended for his honesty as he had been cut over the weekend by his club to 11 and most importantly to Chris who labouring under a 2 shot penalty for coming second twice within the last year has finally picked up a trophy!!!! Well done to Chris.
Thanks to all our members and guests who as usual made the Ashridge event special.
The next event is at Sandy Lodge on 25th July 2019. Let’s have a great turnout for this one. Members will receive the attendance application form via email and in the members section of the website.
