Seniors’ club captain Aly Andrews organised the above event which took place at Harwich & Dovercourt Golf Club. It was a very windy day as is usual on the North Sea coast but the greens were in great condition. There were 26 participants in trying conditions & Stableford scores reflected this. There were prizes in various categories including John Westrup who won most points on the par 3 holes, Richard Hudson who won most points on the “hidden” holes, Bob MacKenzie who was nearest the pin on hole 7/16 & Malcolm English who was nearest on hole 5/14. No player in the top 3 places overall can win more than 1 prize so Malcolm English’s front nine score of 16 points (Roy Ince had 18) & Frank Wilson’s 18 on the back nine won them prizes. Pete Dell, Tony Rhodes & Roy Ince all had 30 Stableford points & finished in that order on countback. The accompanying photograph shows Pete Dell receiving the winner’s tankard from Seniors’ captain, Aly Andrews. It was a very enjoyable day & thanks go to our hosts Harwich & Dovercourt Golf Club for their hospitality (the fish & chips were magnificent) & to Aly (& Teresa, of course) for their hard work.
