Stags Captains Charity Day 2024

On Monday May 20th 2024 we gathered for Captains Day, the major fundraising event of the year for the Captains Charity.

 
The weather forecast the previous week had threatened Scattered Showers but as the day drew closer the forecast improved.  So for the second event in a row (after the Away Day) we didn't have any rain. 
 
Everyone gathered, collecting their cards in the time honoured fashion, with the last to arrive picking up the card and getting to be the marker. Neil Mcklow turned up in plenty of time to avoid this task only to find the rest of his team had already been at the course an hour putting out the markers - sorry Neil!!
 
For a while, early on in our rounds, there were some threatening clouds around, but by the end we were playing in the sunshine. So everyone was able to sit out on the patio, maybe for the first time this year!
 
As everyone arrived back from around the course cards were handed back in and of course the Yellow Balls, or not in some cases. Seven groups returned their balls, 4 returned with varying tales of woe including one team who lost theirs on their second hole played, though to be fair it was the 18th!! and one team returned a yellow ball proudly to be told it had miraculously changed from Kirkland to Taylor Made during the course of the round. No extra marks for initiative though, you have to return the ball you were given!
 
So once we had all the marker boards back from the course prizes were awarded. 
 
Paul Steward was presented with the Tee Marker from the hole he sponsored (after he had said he had been looking to see his name and hadn't seen it!!)
 
Putting together the day emphasised just how much our former Competition Secretary put into this event every year for 14 years, much appreciation from me for the help and guidance he now provides in the background. Though with the burden of organization removed Richard thrived, winning 3 nearest the pin prizes and one longest drive.
 
He was also a member of the Runners Up Team of Steve Hyland, Roy Pickering, Tim Mcdonald & Richard Parham.
 
There might be some questions though with the winning team including the Captain, Handicap Secretary, Competition Secretary! The competition was won by Neil Mcklow, David Spillane, Dave Lole & Mike Smith, who also won the Yellow Ball competition
 
A bottle of wine was also presented to the highest Stableford score on the day which went to the Captain, David Spillane. Though he might regret carding that in the presence of the Handicap Secretary!!
 
The raffle was drawn and prizes distributed, I am learning in my role at the moment and apologize that I didn't keep a note of all the winners - that will be remedied next year.!
 
The day was a major fundraiser towards the Captains Charities, Pulmonary Fibrosis Trust and Grub & Gab.
 
After Monday the total raised so far in 2024, including Easter Egg Raffle, Thank God its Over & Capt v Past Captain Comps stands at £2205 with a couple of contributions still outstanding.
 
So well done everyone as Richard always used to say it is amazing the generosity of the Stags, thank you again for all of the donations, sponsorship etc it certainly makes for a great day and we continue the tradition of the Stags being a major contributor to the Captains Charities each year.

Kilworth Springs v SDP Stags March 18th 2024

The opening match in the Stags 2024/25 season started with an away fixture against Kilworth Springs. Kilworth Springs were obviously eager to start their season as they asked us to provide eight instead of the normal six pairs for the match. I think this is the furthest that we travel north and east in either the winter or summer seasons and Kilworth don't play any other teams that we normally play in winter or summer.
 
I arrived expecting a perfectly dry course from all the reports I had heard beforehand; in practice it was still quite muddy in many areas, but it was good to end up with my shoes more or less the same colour as they started after playing eighteen holes.
 
The course was in good condition, the greens were fast and true. The fairways were nice to play from, when you were on them, although in some places it was difficult to determine where the edge of the fairway should be, which made life a little difficult as placing was only allowed on the fairways. The weather was dry and even sunny at one point.
 
Our match was played in good spirits, with only one rules dispute - a ball had landed outside of a bunker marked as GUR but inside of the rope surrounding the bunker. Actually the dispute was between different members of Kilworth Springs as the two Stags just kept out of it and let them decide what they should be doing.
 
The Kilworth captain was keen to try out a new scoring system - a point for each hole won in each match, plus a bonus point for winning the match overall. This was meant to encourage people to play all the way to the last putt on the eighteenth hole. As the results started to come in the score board started looking more like one from the Eurovision song contest than a Ryder Cup match.
 
Eventually Kilworth Springs ended up with 39 points but Stoneleigh triumphed with 55 points. Under the usual scoring system Stoneleigh won by six and a half to one and a half, winning six matches, drawing one and losing one.
 
David S and Rohit won 1 up, Martin and Mick drew, Richard and Roy won by 6 & 5, Keith and Nigel won 1 up, David G and Jim won by 2 & 1, Michael and Robin C won 1 up, Peter and Ron won by 3 & 2 and finally Robin W and Phil lost by 3 & 2.
 
Apologies if any of these scores aren’t quite right, as re-interpreting the normal scores from the Eurovision scoring system isn't quite as reliable as I thought it might be.
 
The team on the day were David Spillane, Rohit Shah, Martin Darbey, Mick Lloyd, Richard Parham, Roy Walker, Keith James, Nigel Palmer, David Gibbs, Jim Jobson, Michael Quinn, Robin Cathcart, Peter Miller, Ron McNally, Robin Whitehouse and Phil Youett, with Bill Griffin as the unused reserve.
 
Many thanks to everybody for their support for this match, I think everyone would agree that we had a very enjoyable day. Next we have one match at home in April against Stratford Park and then the season gathers pace in May with home matches against the Warwickshire and Hearsall and an away match in Shirley, plus, of course, the match with Stoneleigh ladies on the 2nd of May.
 
Please do think about playing in these matches, even if you haven’t played in a match before. It’s a great way to play golf in a (semi) competitive environment and a good chance to meet other players and, in away matches, to visit other courses.

Stags v Atherstone February 28th

Wednesday 28th February, saw us have our final home match of the 2023/24 AWOWS Winter League which was against Atherstone.  Atherstone came to us lying in second place in the league (just 1 point behind The Windmill) and were looking to push on towards the title.  They also had the additional incentive of seeking revenge against us as in the match at Atherstone in early January we had been the first team ever to defeat them at their course in the league since it commenced. Having not played a match since the 26th of January, during which time we have had 3 cancellations (including one against Oakridge which has had to be declared as an uncontested draw) due to courses being closed because of the weather, it was with relief that our match could proceed as planned. The weather on the day was mainly dry with a few light showers and the course was very wet in places (1st,3rd, 10th and 18th in particular) after all the rain we have had over the past 2 months but at least the greens were receptive.

Paul and I had an excellent 7&6 win which was largely based on a great start as we were 5 Up after only 6 holes with both of us battling on each hole to see who could finish the hole first for the win. Paul had to go and get his back support from the car before we could tee off on the 10th much to the consternation of the opposition who wondered how many they would have been down if he had been fit.  In the second match Bill/Mick struggled and were always behind (5 down at one point) but hung on well and fought back to only lose by 3&2. Mike/Michael followed this up with a good 2&1 win having never been behind in their match. As we sat in the clubhouse awaiting the next group to finish the question being debated within the SDP players was could we actually do the double over Atherstone - even Johnny was getting involved.  David entered the clubhouse and with a long face came over to the captains table to announce that he and Mike had only won by 2&1 but should have closed the match out earlier.  When Mike arrived he had to correct us on the scoreline as it was in fact a 3&1 win but he did agree that the margin should have been more.  The last pair of Jim/Barry suffered a 4&3 defeat due mainly to a  putting masterclass by their opponents. Smiles all round for SDP players with the final result being a 3 to 2 win for Stoneleigh and we had done the double.  To cap off the day Michael Quinn won the bottle of Stoneleigh Chardonnay in the nearest the pin competition on the 9th which was for all the players from both clubs.   

In the clubhouse afterwards we had a few drinks and a meal consisting of steak pie, chips, garden peas and gravy. Our meal was interrupted by a phone call from The Windmill who wanted to know the result of our match as they had just been beaten at home by Oakridge. Having given them the good news of our win meaning they stayed top of the league with one match to go it then became apparent that in fact if results went the right way in the last matches any one of 4 teams including Stoneleigh could in fact win the league.  The Captain's speeches finished the day's activities before everyone headed off for home.

Thanks to all those Stags who made themselves available for the day and to the team for their efforts on the day.

Team on the day : David Templeton, Paul Steward, Bill Griffin, Mick Lloyd, Mike Gilbey, Michael Quinn, David Gibbs, Mike Smith, Jim Jobson, and Barry Gill.

The Final Match of the AWOWS Winter League was to have been away at Whitefields who are bottom of the league but unfortunately it has had to be cancelled as it is carry only today and with the forecast it is certain to be the same tomorrow. Due to difficulties in being able to arrange a new date before 8th March for various reasons it was therefore agreed that the match would be declared an uncontested draw meaning that we can no longer win the league. 

Season Results :                     Summer                            W7, D2, L9            

                                                AWOWS Winter League   W3, D2, L3

Your Captain David
