John Coote Competition
... update from Davey A ...

The end is neigh ...
Well if not immediately, very soon.

We are all perfectly aligned into two perfectly matching semi finals .... the dream of any competition organiser .... As dreams go it's not one of my top ten, even the one with the chicken and the bus would be better.... But I digress.

Dennis Farrell and Derek Bell both completed their remaining quarter-finals with grace and charm to join Peter and Ken in the semis.

Semi finals
Dennis Farrell v Kenneth Craig
Derek Bell v Peter Clarke

Final awaiting both winners,


Any Other Business
Unconfirmed reports suggest that 'clapping golf groupies' were again spotted during play; on this occasion the clapper was spotted observed on the costal path, adjacent to the sixth tee box. Their intentions are believed to be mainly harmless, however, caution is advised.

Ladies News

Tuesday Competition: Ladies 9-hole Team Open: Sponsored by the Golf Spot.

Weather and course:
The sky was blue, the sun shone, there was no wind and the temperature was in the low 20s. Perfect!
Though it had rained heavily during the night and the ground was moist and greens a bit slow, the course was in good condition and complimented on by many visitors.

93 ladies played in the competition. 34 members, 6 visiting Lady captains and 53 visitors.
Unfortunately, two days earlier, two teams had had to withdraw following advice from ILGU because they lived in the Belfast area. The revision of the advice came too late for them to compete.

Results:- Well done to:

First placed team with 41 points:
Stephanie Craig HBGC, Jemma Gillan RBGC, Jackie Sloan HBGC.

Second placed team with 38 points:
Jean Wood HBGC, Irene Aston HBGC, Carol Dixon RBGC.

Third placed team with 37 points:
Pat McCoy, Pamela Stevenson, Ethan Barbar- McMullan all from HollywoodGC.

As the putting green was moist and slippery only three ladies ventured out to play.

The Golf Spot had been invited to set up a display of some of their products. It proved very popular and many ladies left with a lighter purse but some very attractive golfing outfits and equipment.

The Lady Captain had invited the other Lady Captains from the North Down area to play and dine together. Six of the lady captains were able to play in two teams and 6 to dine later with Lady Captain and Lady Vice Captain.
The food in the restaurant was appreciated and complimented on and our thanks to the chefs, Ben for his very efficient service, as well as Mark and Hannah serving us from the bar.

Lady President’s Day 22nd September
Ladies are asked to make sure they have paid their money. By cheque please.
Prosecco will be served at 1.15/1.30 before lunch and 7.15/7.30 before dinner.

A nine hole medal competition using only 3 clubs. The BRS is now open.

Christmas Hamper 6th October
