Month: July 2019

Scratch Team Result: Waterfront 8-0 Tinsley Park (WATERFRONT ARE PROMOTED TO DIVISON 4 AS CHAMPIONS)

A perfect result to seal a perfect ending to the 2019 campaign with the League team securing the Division 5 championship.

After a tough away fixture at Roundwood, where they were beaten 6-2, and a creditable 4-4 draw at Owston Hall, which saw Cian Guest hole a tricky 4 foot putt on the last to secure a half point in his first ever appearance for the team, team manager John was somewhat surprised to see Waterfront still sat top of the table going into the last round of fixtures.

But with a clutch of teams now in the hunt for promotion, 6 points were required to guarantee promotion and 7 for the league. In tough conditions the lads duly delivered, with big wins from George and Chappy followed up by victories for Luca and Dave who both held their nerve to win on the last.

Team Manager John would like to thank everyone who represented the team over the season, the supporters and caddies who make the players job a lot easier, the catering staff for the top notch food, Frank, Jo and our Shirt Sponsors Jakto for making it all possible, and the green keepers for keeping the course in tremendous condition throughout the season.

Congratulations to everyone involved and lets hope for more success next season!!

Winning Team:

Luca Houlgate – W 1up

Dave Sanby – W 1up

George Barlow – W 6&5

Gareth Chapman – W 6&4

Luca Smashes Course Record

A new amateur course record was set in July’s Monthly Medal with Luca Houlgate shooting a magnificent 66 (-5) which included 6 birdies and an eagle! He matches the Pro’s record which was set in 2013 by our former Teaching Pro Iain Pyman.

To top off a remarkable weekend, Luca then went on to win the S.U.G.C Junior Strokeplay title at Lees Hall the day after with another terrific score of 1 under par.

Everyone at Waterfront Golf would like to congratulate Luca on both of his achievements and good luck with his golf in the future as he continues to improve!

6-18 H’cap League Result: Waterfront 5-3 Bondhay

A crucial home victory for the 6-18 team against a very strong Bondhay team who always give the lads a run for their money. Rossy holing a nervy 5 footer on the last to secure a half in his match with partner Chris Dryden and the win overall. Waterfront are in a strong position heading into the final part of the season with games in hand on the teams above them.

Winning Team: Andy Hall, Cian Guest, John Ross Lane, Chris Dryden, Charlie Jones, Rob Batham, Rob Beaumont and Frankie Houlgate.
