Monday 11th February 2019
Guy Murray (14) blasted his way to victory with 34 points from his powerful eight over par round. Parring three of the first four holes Murray escaped the Road Hole with a double bogey for his only single pointer. Then four successive bogeys were ended by a par on the 13th. Murray managed to play par golf from there on in as bogeys on the 14th and 18th were balanced out by back-to-back four pointer birdies on the 16th and 17th.'
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.
Monday 28th January 2019
Christmas came late for Colin C Magee, John Byrne, Andrew Challenor and Mark Todd who triumphed in the rearranged Tower Insurance sponsored Texas Scramble turkey shoot at a windy then wet Castletown GC on Saturday.
Sunday 20th January 2019

Sunday 13th January 2019
David and William Laughlin were the winners on the day and stand sixth overall. Their nett 64.2 included two birdies and two double bogeys, six bogeys and eight pars. 4BBB knockout champion Donald Buchanan and Phil Games, who is enjoying his own hot streak, had won the first round by two clear shots. Without a naughty nine on the Road Hole they could have had a top three finish this weekend, but ended up finishing eighteenth with a nett 69.8. However, they have increased their lead in the cumulative competition.
Monday 7th January 2019
Phil Games wins for the second week in a row and attracts the notice of the handicapper.

Sunday 9th December 2018
Early starter John Byrne (11) had a stellar start parring the first five holes and had a similar par procession after a bogey and double bogey on the 6th and 7th respectively. Even with an N/R on the short 16th Byrne finished six points ahead of the field with a splendid 34 points.
Sunday 2nd December 2018
Wet winter weather washed out the already rearranged reverse greensomes at Castletown Golf Club on Saturday. The next round is scheduled for January 12th and the final round may now take place the week after that. A dozen players did venture out on the previous Sunday in the nine holes stableford. That event was won by Bronwen Raatgever (32) who went round in a nifty nine over par for 27 points, six clear of the field.
Tuesday 27th November 2018
The first of the Tower Insurance turkey shoot competitions took place at Castletown last Saturday. Playing off 75 percent of their handicap and dovetailing beautifully, the winning team of Richard Creamore, Alan Rowe, Adam Creamore and John Ledwidge amassed 106 points over the 15 designated holes.
Sunday 18th November 2018
This year’s 4BBB matchplay knockout champion Donald Buchanan paired up with Simcocks’ chief executive Phil Games to take full advantage of their generous 18.6 combined shot allowance. They parred twelve hole, scrambled bogeys on four more and escaped from the bunkers with double bogeys on the 6th and 11th. Consequently, they ended elegantly on eight over par for 80, nett 61.4.
Sunday 11th November 2018
Ashley Sansbury (18) bettered his handicap by six shots to win the Shoprite sponsored Neville Peterson Trophy with 42 points at Castletown on Saturday. His tremendous tally included a nett eagle on the 10th, six three pointer pars, nine nett pars and a couple of nett bogeys. ‘Make the difference every day’ is Shoprite’s mission and Sansbury would be happy to follow suit.
Sunday 4th November 2018
The first round of the winter Greensomes will now take place on Saturday 17 November as wet and windy weather caused its postponement. Your humble hack had the temerity to travel and hence, no reports were filed for two months. A synopsis of the late summer and autumn competitions at Castletown is therefore set out below.
Monday 29th October 2018
The Syd Ashworth Trophy, kindly sponsored by his son Bill Ashworth, was won on Saturday by No.19’s Will Halsall. He has enjoyed a very successful season. In March Halsall’s handicap was adjusted to (13) but is back down to (10). Investing in lessons with our pro Charlie Simpson was a wise decision as Halsall is now handsomely in credit.
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.
