    Finally!

    The Club Championships the signature event of the year, was finally held after delays caused by Covid-19. We were blessed with a gentle breeze and warm sunshine with no sign of the typhoon 8 which paid us a visit 2 days before. We were actually quite surprised by this gorgeous weather. The event was heavily oversubscribed with over 40 applicants, so with this being our one gross event of the year the field was selected based on handicap on the cut-off date of 5th Oct. We were permitted a total of 6 flights so we fielded 16 men and 8 ladies, roughly reflecting the relative number of male and female applicants.

    Unfortunately, one lady fell sick the day before the event, so thanks to Eric Desgouttes who stepped in to fill the spot at the last minute. Eric won the nearest to pin in hole 14 and the best net with 75. As Eric was in the last flight, he beat five groups in front of him who left no fewer than 5 names on the nearest to the pin flag. I bet his must have been a very close one!

    In the first group, Will Glover was partnered with Jonny Brock, Ryan Black and Terry Wright. Ryan has the lowest handicap among the first group but did not have his finest day losing his drives on hole 1 and 10 which resulted in two double pars, otherwise he might have had a chance to win something. On a brighter note, Jonny Brock shot 84 to win second place and Terry Wright shot 86 to win third place. For the winner, Jason Waldie shot 83, one shot less than Jonny Brock to win the first place! Jason also won the longest drive on hole 12. I guess being a long hitter does have an advantage on the North Course. Congratulations Jason!

    For the ladies, there was a close battle for the Cup with Helen Hayward shooting 95 to pip Jennifer Chapman’s 97. Elizabeth Dendle came third with 105.

    Here is the breakdown of the event:
