Sunday 19th August 2018
Multi-times golfer of the year Dennis Moore (10) re-emerged to win the Club sponsored Stableford with 40 points at Castletown on Saturday. Moore N/R’d the 2nd and double bogeyed the Road Hole but completed the remainder in a solid three over par. Four pointer birdies on the 4th and 6th helped him turn with 19 and a procession of pars and nett pars added 21 on the back nine.
Sunday 12th August 2018
Jonathan Wild (17), who is having lessons with Charlie Simpson, was the runaway winner on an outstanding +10 in the club sponsored Bogey competition at Castletown on Saturday. Opening with a birdie Wild recorded two more in an amazing one under gross par front nine. A late couple of double bogeys were Wild’s only negatives so he finished with 77, nett 58, after application of a two stroke mixed tee amendment.
Sunday 5th August 2018
Former captain Chris Kelly was delighted to secure the SMP Partners sponsored monthly Medal by one shot with an 85, nett 64, at Castletown on Saturday. Putting with aplomb Kelly birdied the 2nd and the 17th and was particularly pleased with his long iron approach shots which led to seven pars and five bogeys. Bunker blues and chunky chips accounted for six shots squandered over the 6th and the 7th. Kelly also lost another four with double bogeys on the 3rd and the 12th.
Sunday 29th July 2018
Tim Callow and Kyle McConnell were in the first group out at 07:04 in the 4BBB when the weather was relatively benign. They dovetailed well to compile 23 points on the front nine, McConnell having birdied the 3rd and Callow the 4th. Like the rest of the field they struggled in the sudden squall scoring a total of two points when it hit them on the 13th and 14th. Bouncing back strongly McConnell birdied the 17th and Callow netted another on the last. Consequently, they added 19 points to make a winning total of 42.
Monday 23rd July 2018
The winner on countback hard hitting Greg Stalker (11) was in the last group out and enjoyed the best of the improving weather. His 43 points from 17 scoring holes included birdies on two of the par fives and other than an N/R on the 6th he completed the course in just three over par.
Sunday 15th July 2018
A simple swing thought provided by pro Charlie Simpson coupled with some short-game practice proved to be the right recipe for David Quayle (5) the worthy winner of this month’s SMP Partners sponsored Medal.
Sunday 8th July 2018
Missing short putts on three successive greens David Allan (11) played the five holes from the 3rd to the 7th in and uninspiring six over par. However, having opened with a birdie, and eventually bagging two more, Allan went on to win the Capital International sponsored Castletown Cup in style on countback. His splendid 78, nett 65 after application of the two stroke white tees amendment, featured an unbeatable one over par back nine. Lynda Jackson won the Lady's cup with 95, nett 74, which was one less than Shirley Price who shot a gross 83.
Sunday 1st July 2018
The ever modest Terry Mackay (32) won by three clear shots with a wonderful 47 points. He made no mention of his electric performance of three nett eagles, eight nett birdies and five nett pars when he charged into the club-house.
Sunday 24th June 2018
The winner of the President’s Day prize Mark Todd, received (17) shots and used them to round up 45 points in and eight over par performance which included two birdies on the front nine. He steered his way to four sets of par/par interspersed by a couple of sevens, five bogeys and a final winning par.
Sunday 17th June 2018
David Laughlin (23) won the substituted club sponsored competition by three clear points. Laughlin’s numbers came up as eight nett birdies and ten nett pars so he definitely didn’t suffer from ‘droopy draws.’ His 44 Stableford points comprised of ‘two little ducks’ on each half so it was Bingo for Laughlin.
Sunday 10th June 2018
Just 0.1 of a point separated the top three teams in the club sponsored four man Texas Scramble at Castletown on Saturday. Messrs Adam Creamore, Richard Creamore, John Ledwidge and Alan Rowe compiled 11 birdies between them and with a further 5.2 (10 per cent) combined handicap reduction they headed the field with 55.8.
Monday 4th June 2018
It seems that the Castletown pro Charlie Simpson should start charging commission as Bob Adcock shot 39 points immediately after the first lesson and now, after just three, has won the SMP Partners sponsored June medal with an astonishing 95/61.
Sunday 27th May 2018
The winner with 43 points Gerry Ganly had 19 shots to play with and only used up one on his fantastic front nine, and so scored 27 points. Alas, a couple of N/R’s blighted his back nine but Ganly gained 16 points from seven scoring holes on which he was just five over par. Those lessons with our pro Charlie Simpson are clearly paying off!
Tuesday 22nd May 2018
All the tees were in operation at Castletown on Saturday and early starter Sam Skelton decided to play off the blues and so received a three shot stroke amendment. Playing off (8) rather than (5) was an inspired choice as Skelton birdied the first three holes to notch up ten stableford points and added another twelve by turning in level par after a sequence of bogeys followed by pars. 23 points flowed from his one under par back nine as Skelton shot two birdies, three nett birdies and four pars to win the competition by one point with a splendid 45.
Tuesday 8th May 2018
59 teams took part in the Captain’s Day 4BBB charity event which was won by Andrew Davies (9) and Mark Jones (17) with 47 points.
Sunday 29th April 2018
The Woods Cup, a much maligned bogey competition, was switched back to a qualifier on Saturday as otherwise we would have three non qualifying weekend events in a row. It was well won by John Lee (19) with +5. Other than an N/R on the 7th Lee had a procession of pars or nett pars which continued until the 15th when, at +6, the sequence was spoilt by back-to-back double bogeys. A cleverly crafted par, his seventh, against the wind on the 17th and then his eighth nett par to finish equated to a win by one shot.
Sunday 22nd April 2018
The top team of Andrew Davies (10), Dave Litton (20), Angus Alexander (7) and Dominic Litton (15) carded [2 x 7], [6 x 6], [7 x 5] and [3 x 4] for an amazing 97 points which was four better than the field. Davies and Alexander acted as the anchor men, with Davies completing 16 holes in just one over par and Alexander played par golf on the 13 where his score was recorded. Littons senior and junior joined in with a nett eagle apiece and nine nett birdies between them.
Sunday 15th April 2018
Andrew McGee (20) had the game of his life in the first round of this year’s SMP Partners sponsored medal series at Castletown on Saturday. Shooting a nett 67 is something special. Doing it with an 11 on your card is amazing.
Sunday 8th April 2018
There was a two way tie on 42 points in the Captain’s Drive-In on Saturday. Winning the specially minted commemorative medal was the smooth swinging Steven Glynn (21) who is now off (19) but is destined to be lower.Glynn, who in February won the third round of the Winter League Stableford, has been having lessons with Charlie Simpson and is more consistent now. There were a few three putts and the odd duff shot which restricted his Stableford score on the 5th, 11th and 15th but a four pointer nett eagle on the 14th proved crucial on countback.
Sunday 1st April 2018
Ian Hodgkinson (18) who was one of only four players to meet or beat their handicap. His winning 39 points was both back nine biased and heavily influenced by wind direction. Hodgkinson hit a real purple patch from the 13th to the 15th where he sunk a bountiful birdie 2 for four points and followed it up with two nett birdies. Facing the full force of the wind it was a case of hit and hope on the last three holes but three 5’s for five points saw Hodgkinson home safely.
