Sunday 18th August 2019
Robert Braide (4) returned to winning ways, stepping in with 39 points to secure the Simcocks sponsored Stableford on Saturday. Braide, who just happens to be the financial controller at Simcocks, took the money with a thrifty three over par performance, which included two birdies and thirteen pars. Double bogeys on the 8th and 11th, plus a bogey on the 15th, being the only blemishes.
Sunday 11th August 2019
Whether our Anthony Hopkins needs to wear ‘The Mask of Zorro’ is debatable, but he certainly slashed a few shots off his handicap (22) by winning the Neville Peterson Memorial Trophy with 42 points at Castletown on Saturday. Playing ‘target golf’ Hopkins fashioned four gross pars which helped him net seven birdies and ten pars. Only the 6th, on which he scored a nett bogey, caused him to card less than two points.
Sunday 4th August 2019
There was a three way tie at the top of the SMP Partners sponsored monthly medal at Castletown Golf Club on Saturday. Course record holder Simon Murray (5) took top spot with the best gross score, a one over par 73, nett 66, after the two stroke white tee’s adjustment.
Sunday 28th July 2019
This perfect combination was demonstrated by the team of Andrew Challenor (0), Colin C Magee (11), Steve Keegan (7) and Mark Todd (8) with a winning back nine countback of 45. Chal fired in three of his four birdies, Magee, who was the MVP with 33 points over 13 holes, added another three nett birdies. Keegan contributed two more and Todd tapped in the other three pointer on the downwind 15th.
Sunday 21st July 2019
In pursuit of a single figure handicap Roger Raatgever (11) has been having lessons with club pro Charlie Simpson and he submitted a supplementary score having shot an eight over par 80 in a midweek warm-up off the white tees. This helped trigger an ESR (exceptional scoring reduction) on Saturday when he won the Woods Cup with a 77, nett 64, after the two shot white tees adjustment. Hence, Raatgever now finds himself in the top twenty-five percent of the world’s golfers holding handicaps with his new low of 8.9.
Sunday 14th July 2019
The splendid new Vice-Captain's trophy was won by Pete Thomas (8) who plotted his way round in five over par in the challenging conditions. Four birdies, seven pars, six bogeys and a slippery seven on the longest drive hole, the 11th, all added up to 41 winning points after the two shot white tees allowance.
Sunday 7th July 2019
There was a two way tie on Saturday in the SMP Partners sponsored monthly medal. Carding 81, nett 67 after the white tee’s amendment, Terry Ditchfield (12) took a triple bogey eight on the 12th but his back nine beat Chris Westerman (19) on countback. Starting with an easy birdie Ditchfield avoided the rough to complete the first half in just three over par and, discounting the aberration on the 12th, would have repeated that performance on the back nine.
Monday 1st July 2019
Simpson added a six over par 42 to her outward 47 making 89 to add to her first round 81 for a trophy winning total of 170. Price had won the second round by one shot with 44 + 44 for 88, but with her opening 83 she came agonisingly close with a cumulative total of 171.
Sunday 30th June 2019
Robert Noon and Gez Bradley had to be separated on countback but Noon got the nod in the blue tees club championship while Steve Keegan claimed the senior's title by three clear shots.
Sunday 23rd June 2019
Practice paid dividends for Gez Bradley (2) the blue tees winner of the first round of The International Stock Exchange (TISE) sponsored club championship at Castletown Golf Club on Saturday. Former multi-times golfer of the year Dennis Moore (9) showed his class with a five over par 77, nett 68, to occupy pole position after the first round of the senior section yellow tees contest.
Sunday 16th June 2019
The worthy winner of the President's Cup with 42 points was late starter Lewis Howland (6) who birdied the 3rd, 4th, 12th and 15th, which enabled him to play the first seven in two under par and repeat the feat on the last seven.
Sunday 9th June 2019
Late starter Andi Howland (9) was warming up when club pro Charlie Simpson suggested a slight change of grip. It must have felt funny at first because Howland bogeyed the opening hole and suffered a further crisis of confidence on the 6th and 7th. Having integrated the change Howland dropped just two shots on the inward leg to finish at six over par for 41 winning points after the white tees adjustment.
Sunday 26th May 2019
Michael (Cal) Kinmond definitely demonstrated that his recent investment in six lessons with Castletown Golf Links’ pro Charlie Simpson is beginning to pay dividends.With the aid of two extra shots for choosing the white tees Kinmond also knocked in nine nett pars to triumph in the Saturday Stableford with 45 points. The Smith Trophy was played for on Wednesday and Claire McGuinness (40) started with a nett eagle to which she added nine nett birdies, six nett pars plus one nett bogey for 45 points to take the trophy.
Sunday 19th May 2019
Having lost out on countback last year our immediate past captain Mike Horsthuis (9) won the 2019 Capital International sponsored Castletown Cup after a three way tie on nett 66. Shooting the same score Loni Evans (15) was the runaway winner off the red tees thwarting island open champion Shirley Price’s attempt to retain her Castletown title.
Sunday 12th May 2019
Captain’s Day at Castletown Golf Club is always special and with 117 players taking part No.19 was especially busy serving complimentary tea and coffee before the round followed by curry, rice and chips afterwards. And yet Will Halsall (10) still found time to sneak out and win the new trophy put forward by captain Geoff Sugden who was personally manning the drinks gazebo by the 13th.
Sunday 5th May 2019
The clear winner of the SMP Partners sponsored Medal was Steven Boyd (3) who knocked in a nifty nett 66. His one under par 71 also garnered the gross prize. Boyd was bidding for a nett 70 having brushed in birdies on the 12th and the 15th but a dreaded double bogey on the 17th set him back to square. It took another birdie at the last to lift him one clear of his closest competitors.
Monday 29th April 2019
Congratulations go to golf development officer Melanie Jansen (25) who won the Lady Captain's Day Stableford with 41 points.
Monday 22nd April 2019
Saturday saw SMP Partners sponsor the first in their monthly medal series and there were 108 starters. A two way tie at the top transpired with Kevin Lewin (27) and Simon Murray (5) both shooting nett 65’s.
Sunday 14th April 2019
