Wednesday 9th August 2023 - Seniors Open BetterBall Stableford

Our Seniors Open Betterball Stableford was played on Wednesday, and, proving as popular as ever, it attracted a field of 152 players. It seemed to be a case of saving the best 'til last as the winning pair emerged at the tail end of the field, and it was none other than the Ludlow pairing of Jim Peters and Geoff Rose who achieved a stunning total of 49 points. They were four points clear of their nearest challengers, Ludlow's John Phillips & Chris Bott, themselves two points ahead of club president, Ian Hankinson and his partner Graham Perry (from Bull Bay GC). Tied with them, but losing out on the back nine, were South Staffordshire's Paul Snape and Stephen Jones.
Returning the best Gross score, of 36 points, was the pairing of Simon Golsby and Mick Mathews from Penn Golf Club.

Once again the feedback from the competitors was very complimentary, with regards the course, hospitality and the running of the event.

Many congratulations to all the prize winners and our thanks for supporting this event.

Sunday 6th August - Weekend of Golf Mixed Am-Am

Sadly, due to some horrendous weather early on Saturday, the Open Betterball Stableford competition was cancelled, but Sunday saw us rounding the weekend off with the Open Mixed Am-Am.

With much better weather, and thankfully only a few sporadic showers, the 17 teams enjoyed a fine day's golf. Taking their place atop the leaderboard, with a fine score of 79 points was the Shifnal based team of Brian Shepherd, Sara Shepherd, Kevin Walker & Dee Walker. Two points behind, in second place was Ludlow's own Graham & Samantha Clark, Neil Lewis & Jayne Smith, themselves one point ahead of third placed Kevin Fincher, Liz Clewley, Rob Amphlett & Debra Fearnley

With a few spot prizes available for both Men and Ladies it made for a fun and competitive day for all.

Congratulations to the prize winners and a huge thank you to everyone who supported this event and, indeed, our whole weekend. We look forward to our Opens in October and hope to see you all soon.

Friday 4th August - Weekend of Golf Open Texas Scramble

On Friday 4th August our Weekend of Golf opened with a Texas Scramble, and it was very nearly a case of deja vu, as the first team out, Ludlow's Dave Scriven, Ricky James, Derek James & Dave Evans tried to repeat their feat of last year of leading from start to finish, after they set an impressive target of net 53.1. Alas, for them, it fell slightly short this time, as they took second place behind the victorious team of Lloyd Roberts, Ollie Jackson, Chris Johnson and Chris Holmes, from Llanymynech, with their superb score of net 52.7.

Taking third place was the team of Graham and Samantha Clark, Pat Collier & Neil Lewis (all from Ludlow), with their score of net 53.9, just 0.05 ahead of fourth place.

With a great turnout of 184 players, a notable increase on last year, the comments regarding the course and clubhouse hospitality were, once again, very complimentary. Congratulations to all the prize winners, and many thanks to all those who supported the event.

Winter Open Series (21st January 2023)

In freezing wintry conditions, which saw the course playing rock-hard from tee to green, the event still went ahead, albeit as a non-qualifier for handicap. Adding to that, the klaxon had to be sounded, as the course became shrouded in fog, to halt play for about an hour before resuming at around 11:00am. The eventual winner of Division One, with a superb 40 points, was Andy Sheppard (Ludlow), two ahead of Cleobury's Ian Dorrell. Division Two saw Horse Hay's Simon White leading the way with 36 points, one ahead of second placed Dan Hedge of Lakeside.

Saturday 1st October - October Open Texas Scramble

Open Texas Scramble Success for Church Stretton Team
We had a full field of 152 golfers in our Open Texas Scramble on Saturday and everyone enjoyed the course which was in superb condition on a lovely warm & sunny Autumn day, although strong wind throughout the day tested everyone.

It was all very tight at the top of the leader board with just .2 of a shot separating the top 3 teams.
James Rogers, John Fenton, David Malcolm & Mark James (Church Stretton) set an impressive target of 53.45 nett which proved to be the winning score. Two Ludlow teams got very close, Graham & Sam Clark, Will & John Evans finished on 53.55 to secure second place with Russell Jones, Gavin Duggan, Dave Fish & Will Norton scoring 53.65 for 3rd place.
