COLMWORTH SENIOR’S CHRISTMAS EXTRAVAGANZA
Well done John (I did it my way) Smith for organising a fabulous Christmas spectacular again this year. We had great food, and were royally entertained by Elvis, plus music by Frank Sinatra, Neal Diamond, and others. Even Santa himself turned up, but the star performance by Frank John Smith Sinatra singing “I Did it My Way” was the highlight of the show.
Michael MacIntyre Woods took us through an unusual playing card draw for a sumptuous hamper, followed by a multiple choice raffle with prizes ranging from cuddly toys to bottles of wine. All in all a great evening, which also raised in the order of £300 for The British Heart Foundation.
John, you did it your way. Well done, and many thanks.
POPPY DAY OPEN 2015
Fagg leds the field home
Graham Fagg snatched the 2015 Poppy Day top score prize in a count back victory over John Wadham.
Fagg who had been tipped to win needed a superb back nine total to finish on 43 points beating fellow playing partner Wadham by the slenderest of margins.
Fagg thought he had blown his chances late on when he stubbed an easy chip but recovered to rise like a pheonix from the Ashes as he rolled his own ball to within inches of the cup to lift the crown.
It was ironic that the first and second players came from the same group of four who were first on the course of the twenty three groups who took part and that third and fourth placed Dave Lanyon and Harry Day were in the final group of the day. Christina Baxter from Abbotsley bagged the Ladies prize with Yan Caserta from St Ives netting the visiting Congu handicap players spoils. Ever present in all eight Poppy Day challenges Dave Bevans, Fens Gas, took the society player prize.

Biggest winner on the day was once again The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal which received a cheque totalling £1,160.

SENIORS’AWAY DAY 12th August
36 seniors took on a tough course at Toft, near Bourne, in Lincolnshire, which proved a challenge for all but the mighty.
Who would have thought that such a hilly course could exist in that county.

THREE TEE CHALLENGE Wednesday 1st July
NIGEL STEVENS sponsored this new “Novelty Competition” for the first time and an encouraging 25 players entered the fray on what was without doubt one of the most difficult days to play competition golf.
With temperatures soaring above 30c and close muggy conditions it was noticeable that late in the round may players struggled.
Players played to a Stableford format but teed off for the first six holes off the Yellow tee’s followed by Red tee’s for the second six finishing with six off White tee’s to end the round.
Two sections were completing for identical prizes. The high handicap (20+) were led home by Mick Avery 38pts with Jim Murray taking second with 33, Chris Ray ran away with the up to 20 handicappers with a massive 44pts with Bob Jewell 39ocb snatching second. Kelvin Waller took the nearest the pin second shot on 15th with Bridget Stone on the mark for the nearest the pin on 9th.
Overall the competition was rated a great success but let’s have a slightly cooler day for next year’s competition

BUFFY CUP Wednesday 24th June
The BIG day of the year is always the 27 hole Buffy Cup sponsored by Eric Stanton and we broke all records this year both with numbers entering and the winners final score
Alec Ivings led after 18 holes with a seven ( yes severrrrrn) under par 65 at 18 holes and held his nerve to pip John McIntyre to the post with a net 100 for the 27 holes, three better than John
Paul Habershon and Barry Snelson tied in third place with 104net.
Garth Blackette had also donated a new trophy (Blackette Trophy) for those who had reached the ripe old age of 70 or 25+ handicaps, this being determined over the first 18 holes.
Craggy veteran John “you’ve got to get up early in the morning to catch me” Hughes weighed in with net 71 closely followed by the rejuvenated Harry Day 72 with third place once again tied withBridget Stone and Ron Harding sharing the spoils. Nearest the pin went to John Hughes

COLMWORTH OPEN Thursday 11th June
Well done everyone for a successful Open Day which raised almost £1ooo for Macmillans Appeal. Alec Ivings is presenting the cheque to the Macmillan Reps on Monday 29th June.
Barry Snelson was the top man on the day and Bridget Stone lifted the ladies title.
Please thank all your guests who supported the day. And please make a big effort to thank anyone who came along and made an additional sponsors donation.
PRESIDENT’S CUP Sunday 7th June 2015
This competition took place on 7th June under cloudless skies and in good spirit
The format was unusual in as much that the teams (allocated by Rose) recorded the best gross score and the best nett score; something of a nightmare for the scorers and a bigger headache for the recorder as all three teams presented a score of 144…. and thus the count backs started!
In third place was Matt Knights, Bob Smith and Clive Cardy; in second place was Gary Nicholson, Damian Matthews, Kevin Hand and Rachel Smith and worthy winners were Paul Woodroffe Dave Cambers and Peter Jennings.
Well done to all three teams for parring the course.
