6-18 Team Pipped at the Post

The 6-18 Team finished the season in 2nd place in Divison 1 despite a 6-2 home win against Crookhill in their final game of the campaign. Some indifferent results on the road had put them on the back foot but a strong home win meant that Phoenix had to beat Crookhill by the same scoreline or better to beat them to top spot. Unfortunately an 8-0 win for Phoenix two days later meant that they were crowned Champions.

Team Manager John Stead would to thank everyone who has represented the team this season for their efforts and all the supporters who came to watch them throughout.

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.

Kyle Wins 9 Hole Major

Congratulations to Kyle Lupton who topped off an excellent week, which included a big win at Owston Hall for the League Team and becoming a Category 1 golfer for the first time, with victory in this years 9 Hole Major. A +1 gross total for a Nett 34 ( 2 under) was enough to claim the trophy, beating Mark Tester, Cian Guest and Adam Tuck on countback.

 

Scratch Team Result: Rother Valley 5-3 Waterfront

A narrow defeat for the scratch team on Wednesday night but 3 valuable points never the less. With the youngsters both losing narrowly it was George who made it 6 wins on the bounce, on a personal level, to get them underway and then Dave maintained his unbeaten away record by winning the last hole to secure a half in a nervy finale. The lads have a week off next week before their final 3 games of the season and with the league table starting to concertina up slightly every point is going to be vital.

TEAM:

Luca Houlgate – L  2Down

Lucas Martin – L 2&1

George Barlow – W 4&2

Dave Sanby – A/S

Scratch Team Result: Waterfront 6-2 Doncaster Town Moor

Another solid home win for the Scratch team which cements their place at the top of the table. An unfortunate mix up in the Town Moor ranks saw them only field 3 players giving Chappy a walkover win. Wins for Luca and George ensured Waterfront put 6 points between themselves and their 2nd placed opponents. The table is starting to shape up nicely but with 3 away games on the spin coming up there are more strong performances needed to secure promotion.

TEAM:

Luca Houlgate – W 4&3

Dave Sanby – L 2&1

George Barlow – W 4&2

Gareth Chapman – W W/O 10&8

Scratch Team Result: Tinsley Park 4-4 Waterfront

2nd vs 1st did battle on Wednesday evening with a draw seeing Waterfront stay top of Division 5 and maintain a 4 point gap between themselves and their hosts. While Luca and Kyle dropped on opponents who were on top form on the day, Dave kept up his 100% record this season and George put everyone through the ringer once again to secure victory on the last and a draw overall. The lads sit two points clear at the top at the half way point in the season and take on Town Moor at home this week, who are now their nearest challengers.

TEAM:

Luca Houlgate – L 2&1

Dave Sanby –  W 5&4

George Barlow – W 1up

Kyle Lupton – L 2&1

6-18 Handicap League Result: Waterfront 5-3 Phoenix

The 6-18 team made it back to back wins with a hard fought victory at home against a strong Phoenix team. A big win for Frankie and Rossy set them on their way but with the match looking like finishing in a stalemate, young Charlie Jones, on his debut for the team, holed a 20 footer on the last to secure a half in his match with partner Glynn and victory overall in the match.

Winning Team: Andy Hall, Cian Guest, Frankie Houlgate, John Ross Lane, Paul Wright, Rob Beaumont, Charlie Jones, Glynn Prosser
