Ces Dowson Trophy Day
The Ces Dowson Trophy Day for the Stags saw 17 teams, a record number, compete for this prestigious trophy - including quite a number of new Stags.
Some of these did not realise that it is extremely bad form to win on your first outing with the Stags.
A closely fought competition ensued with the winners coming in only one stroke ahead of the second place team, but who were these winners and have their handicaps been subject to the rigours of Stags Competitions? Out of the winning two teams 5 were new Stags, and this is very encouraging as we might persuade them to play in matches and win a few away games - and who knows one of them may turn out to be an excellent new Comp sec!
So congratulations to the winners Keith Wykes, Reg Dann, George Lynch and John Williams (don't make a habit of it, guys).
See the full results here
Monday 29th & Tuesday 30th May
Congratulations to Richard Pedrick who topped the score board this week with a fantastic score of 46 points
In 2nd place with another great score of 44 points was John Sidey
After countback 3rd place was awarded to Terry Wing with 42 points
Well done to all the winners!
Stags Captains Away Day
"Whoever said it always rains on Away days. It is a bit like saying that politicians always speak the truth or never change their minds. By the way if I want a strong and stable leadership, for the many not the few, to build a better and brighter future , who do I vote for?
After last years trauma of a vote against the status quo in which a lot of elderly Stags voted against the committee, it seems that nothing has changed much, a bit of a phoney peace exists perhaps. Everything goes on as normal, a new photo shop kaleidoscope of ne'er do wells has been published, all looking another year older and even more suspect, a few new Stags have joined looking like their handicaps have come from the land of Hans Christian Anderson, new competitions have been introduced, the rules of the fiddle become even more byzantine, but apart from that - well.
No! Call in the clubhouse any midday and you will see a bowl of chips being shared by many, grumbles about the state of the course, reminisces about the good old days, even though they were pretty awful, and a happy malcontent atmosphere as though they love moaning, heaven for-fend.
One moan that cannot be sustained this year is that it always rains on Away days. Not this year.
A glorious day , bright blue skies, a yellow sun, a little breeze, a glorious golf course and 40 moan-less Stags arrived at the Fulford Heath Golf Course where we were received generously and warmly by the local Pro, the catering manager and a starter. Succulent bacon rolls and lashings of coffee were on hand and the golf course beckoned, a feeling of optimism about good scores, running balls and true greens, avoidable bunkers and hopes of winning the Bill Collier Cup permeated the Stags. This would be the year when the average stableford score would exceed 30 or even 36!
The course however held some surprises, after a gentle opening hole , the James Braid designed course soon showed its teeth and scores did not reach the expectations of the Stags.
However there were some good individual performances. John Hayman won the nearest the pin and Alan Heatley continued his good week with the longest drive, and Bandit Bill had a good round but failed to make the top three, which were Charles McTear, sadly perhaps playing his last Away Day in third place with 35 points beaten on countback on the last three holes by Professor Bill Crofts also with 35 points. All were put to shame by a brilliant 39 points from a Stag playing with the aid of a personalised individual buggy and a dodgy knee, the deserved winner Mick Brown.
After eating a fine lunch of Chicken and Leek pie, seasonal vegetables and the inevitable chips and sitting on the balcony in the glorious sunshine sampling the local brew and waiting for the last group to appear, the Captain Mike presented the prizes and the Cup and we all departed to be driven home along the traffic free M40!
Oh by the way The Stags average score was 28; so nothing much has really changed.
Scores on the day were as follows
