Wakelin Trophy Result 14th July 2021
The weather continues to smile on our competitions and today16 teams fought to be the number one pair and lift the Wakelin Trophy. Top of the tree was the pairing of Ken Bentley and Ken Hewitt with 43 points followed closely by runners up, Stuart Belfield and Les Cotton with 42 points. Congratulations to both pairs on their outstanding results. Two other pairings broke the 40-point barrier, being Fred Lewis and Stuart Molyneux with 41 and Terry Cockram and Frank Chapman with 40.
Shot of the day has to have been by John Mills on the second hole. Three off the tee and a second shot that wasn’t the best, described by John as “trying to go for gold”, was just the prelude to holing out from 130 yards.
There was an additional prize for the neatest card. Sadly, Phil Maitland produced the neatest card. Why sadly? Because he made a scoring error and was eliminated from the competition. Topflight competition can be so cruel! Following the removal of Phil, five lesser, but still neat, cards entered a draw. Seniors’ Captain, Bill Myatt, was invited to pick one of the five at random and very wisely selected the card completed by Seniors’ Chairman, Paul Burch, who was most grateful.
Another great day for the Seniors expertly organised by Barry
The Bill Myatt Trophy 2021
Firstly, a big thank you to Bill for donating us a Trophy and it’s fitting his name will be around for a long time.
Secondly, a big thank you to all those who took part especially as some had played the previous day. Consecutive days golf is hard work at a certain age, and it took its toll on Bill who retired “tired”.
We had one of the best turn outs for a long time and I have no doubt it will be the same next year. The scorecards were a bit of a challenge especially with two competitions running together plus Covid. Next year it will be a stand-alone competition and hopefully, a lot easier to manage.
The overall winner of the competition is Stuart Molyneux with 40 points, a good score any day of the week but especially on competition day. Lee Graham won division 2 with 39 points and Phil Maitland took the honours for division 1 with 38.
The trophy and prizes will be awarded (fingers crossed) at our Presentation Lunch.

Match Day Report
Today (10th June) was our away day at Hazel Grove Golf Club and a great turnout of 32 intrepid golfers took on the Stockport course which looked in fine fettle.
It was very pleasant to see our old Head Greenkeeper, Vince, and many of us renewed our acquaintance with him. He was in fine form and pleased to see us. I spoke to a couple of members and they think very highly of him.
The weather was warm but not oppressive and perfect for a day's golf. Hazel Grove were brilliant giving each of us a little goody bag on arrival. A very nice touch appreciated by all and the catering staff were excellent.
Achievement of the day, even eclipsing the epic performance of Messrs Langford and Burch, was Mark Lindop's hole in one on the 9th. Well done Mark.
I have to say that I've ceased to be amazed at the variations Seniors can create when asked to complete a card. However, Bill Maddocks and I battled through everything thrown at us and we were able to compile a final results table for our competitions which is now attached.
Congratulations to all who took part. It's been some time since our last away day and that may have added to what was an excellent day out with a group who are second to none.
Next year we have secured Mickleover GC as the venue of our away day where, hopefully, you will join us.
