JUNIORS AND PARENTS AWAY DAY
After two years of planning, the Junior Section Away Day to Ashby Decoy Golf Club, Scunthorpe took place on the 18th August.
Unfortunately our Captain and Vice Captain had last minute call ups to play in the Derbyshire Boys matchplay final along with Jamie Booth, but a party of 13 golfers made their way to Ashby Decoy in drizzly rain conditions.
Individual Stableford was the order of the day off full handicap and team results were complete by random choosing of a hidden partner. With seven teams it was incredible that 3 teams all scored 67 points.
After further analysis of back nine scores the eventual winners were James Hewitt and Dave Sharp, Runners up were James Sharp and Garry Sims and third place went to Robin Brown and Declan Roberts.
It felt as though we were the only golfers playing that day but the catering was excellent and the golf club did us a great deal on the golf fees ( £10 for adults and £5 for juniors). For anyone thinking of playing a course not too far from home this course comes with an excellent recommendation. The course is predominantly tree lined parkland and the greens were excellent. Our mascot for the day was Zachary Clough who did a great job caddying for Barbara and Garry Sims.
