Marsden Park GC

Rain on & off for most of the day did not stop some impressive scoring in the alliance at Marsden this week. Top player on the day was Ryan O'Neill who's -6,64 easily won the pro section and in combination with Steve Moores he won the pairs section too. Top seniors were Harry Kakoullis and Steve Booth with Ian Singleton and Pat Houston grabbing the supers section prize. A big thanks to Marsdens Neil and Trudy Reeves along with chef Mark who provided a superb barbecue which brightened up a miserable day weatherwise. Well done to all players who embraced the dress in colour theme- best or worst dressed on the day went to Abdul Asaria with Malcolm Wells a distant second ! See you all at Deane next week.

Ashton & Lea 21/8/19

A & L played tough yesterday with a strong breeze making the course play longer than usual. There was a real log-jam on 43 points in the main event with father and son duo of Mark & Elliott Harling prevailing acpo. Top seniors were Dave Bond & Eric Lambert and in the supers Eddie Dewhurst and Kenny Woodfine scored a very strong 42 points to win. In the pro section Scott Richardson took the cash with a superb -2, 38 points. Next week we are at Marsden Park and there is a BBQ after play ( no charge!!) players are encouraged to dress in outlandish colours - the weather forecast is encourageing and there is a special prize for the most interestingly dressed competitor. See you all there John & Tony.

Preston GC 14/8/19

A full field of alliance regulars somehow got round this week thanks to superb USGA standard greens at the always excellently presented Preston GC. Top scorers were Chris Hart & Rob Batchelor win a fine 45 points- lead seniors were Wally Smith & Paul Dunn with Ray Standring & Ron Kenny topping the Superseniors section. A milestone today for Ray with his first hole in one on the very first hole!! Also full credit to Penwortham tour pro Ryan O'Neill who shot 65 gross in atrocious conditions to scoop the pro prize. Well done to all the winners and to all who played.. not one walk off. See you all at Ashton & Lea next week. Regs JT & TC

Top pro was veteran Craig Corrigan on 40 points and leading seniors were Wally Smith & Paul Dunn with Jack Kelly & John Buchanan picking up the Superseniors prize. Well done to all who played today it was not easy at times. Onto North Manchester next week. Regards John & Tony
