Hello All

After taking a week off, Andy Scott returned last Weekend to claim the July Medal with a Net 68 holding off the determined challenges of Nigel Hammond and Iain McEwan in a card Play off. Congratulations Andy and well Played Nigel and Iain!

Division 2 was a more comfortable Victory for Lee Porter with a Net 71. Well done Lee on your second Medal win since golf resumed in the Spring.

Lowest Gross score was Mick Edmunds with a Gross 72 Net 69. Good effort but sad to see Handicap increase of 0.5 due to the ‘Differentials’ course playing easier, weather etc.

Congratulations to the numerous Birdie ball Winners, Mick Edmunds with Birdies on 12th and 15th, Nigel Hammond with Birdies on 10th and 15th, and Roy George 12th Allan Davies 1st and Darren Cumper 1st. Lots of Balls, well done all.

I thank you all for the excellent standard of cards returned and full payment of £63.00 collected!

Belfairs Match Wednesday 28th July:
I am delighted to report that Southend Golf Club were victorious in this very enjoyable Match by 615 Points to 563 Points. The result was never in doubt as Team after Team returned with excellent scores. A special mention to Ian Spooner who not only walked 18 Holes is some discomfort but scored 39 Points as well! Fantastic Effort.

The Overall Winner was Cyrill Elliott who grabbed the cash with a fantastic 44-46 Points depending what Handicap you look at! Front 9 Winner was Tony Howson with 23 Points Back 9 Roy Beadell (Belfairs) 25 Points.

Nearest the Pins were won by Dave Seymour 10 and Simon Ravinet 15th. All in all a good day for Southend and we look forward to the return Match in the Autumn. Thanks to Dave B for all his hard work as usual and all of you who supported the day by turning up.
