Mens 2nd Team Comps update
Our mens teams (non scratch) have made a good start to the season in the various competitions that they have entered.
Taskers KO - over 50's comp - we have two teams in this years comp and both have successfully navigated home and away matches through to round 4. Both teams have tough away matches in round 4 on 9th July - Team A at Shirland and Team B at Charnwood Forest but I'm confident they will battle hard and do our club proud.
SUGC 6 to18 foursomes league - our clubs first ever venture in this league. Eight teams in the league with home and away fixtures. Four pairs from each team. We have made a good start with a 4/4 draw at home to Silkstone, an excellent 7/1 win at home to Rother Valley, a tough but well fought 7/1 loss away to Tinsley (currently league leaders) and a challenging 6/2 loss at home to Town Moor. Another 10 matches between now and mid September.
SUGC 6 to 12 4somes KO - an excellent run in this competition where our team has got through to Round 3 - a win in our next match on Monday 3rd July against our old foes Abbeydale on a neutral course (Rotherham) will see us in the semi finals.
SUGC 2nd Team championships - a one off competition for 6 to 12 handicap players. Three players with combined medal scores played off scratch. This was played on 17th June at Silkstone and we were represented by Mark Saxton, Ian Ward and Gordon Panter who came a very creditable 7th.
If you fancy representing our great club in our mens team comps this year and/or subsequent years please contact Neil Hessell (firstname.lastname@example.org) or 0711153976.
Have a great golfing season and COME ON TEAM HGC!!
