Morning All.

Please find attached the Result of the August Monthly Medal played over last weekend.

There were 22 entries, 22 cards were completed and £66.00 was collected. No Birdie balls were won.

A highly competitive Division 1 Medal was won by Dave Seymour on count back from Lewis Burgess Both achieving Nett 65’s and earning Handicap reductions. Well played and congratulations to you both.

Mick Butcher returned a respectable Nett 71, despite an unfortunate 11 on the fourth hole. His reward, a one shot Handicap reduction!

Division 2 was there for the taking and victory was claimed by first time winner Ronnie Bridges With a Maiden Nett 67 from runner up, with another sub par round of Nett 69, Rob Leek. Congratulations Ronnie and welcome to the Club. Your Handicap has been reduced!

In order to assist the smooth running of these Competitions and prevent last years unfortunate Controversy I would greatly appreciate it if you can all follow the below.

  • Please sign in on PSI.
  • Mark your name clearly on Competition Card and state what Competition/s you are playing.
  • Ensure the card has either AM or PM clearly marked on it
  • Ensure that you clearly mark scores with no overwriting.
  • Enter your scores on the PSI taking care that the correct scores are entered.

Any problems let me know. If PSI not working correctly, no problem, again leave it alone and let me know. Please do not switch it off, play with various buttons, or log it out, as this does not help!

Finally, in fairness to all, please conclude your card marking and signing after finishing play on the 18th or in the changing room Prior to entering your scores on the PSI. Anyone found adjusting or rewriting cards in the Clubhouse bar will be Disqualified. Thanks for your help in advance.

Any changes I will let you know.
