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.

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.

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.

It took another birdie at the last to lift him one clear of his closest competitors.

Sunday 3rd February 2019
Francis Thoday (15) joined those pilloried people who score 47 points by winning the club Stableford on Saturday by four clear points after two birdies, ten pars and six bogeys. Remarkably, even with a nett 61, Thoday still ended up on the losing 4BBB team and consequently had to buy the coffee.
