Bill Bannister Trophy

We are pleased to inform members that there is a brand new trophy to be played for in May. Most will remember our Past Captain, Bill Bannister, who died last year. His wife, Sue, has very generously donated a trophy to be played for in his memory. Details are : –

Saturday 27th May – Greensome competition from the white and red tees open to pairs of men and ladies (no mixed), juniors to play with an adult. The trophy will go to the pair with the best score, but there will also be prizes for the best ladies and best men’s pairs. The entry sheet is in the conservatory.

Other competitions in May are : –

Monday 1st May – Captain’s Cup (monthly medal) to be played from the black tees.

Sunday 7th May – London and Felixstowe Gold Medals – mixed foursomes medal played from the white and red tees. Entry sheet in the conservatory.

Friday 12th May – sees the return of the 12 hole Texas Scrambles. Teams of 4 with each player to take three tee shots. Entry sheet in the conservatory. Lynne is doing a special menu that evening, so why not stop afterwards.

Wednesday 17th May – Midweek Stableford to be played from the yellow tees. No tee reservations. Just turn up, pay the entry fee, sign in and play.

Friday 19th May – 9 hole Stableford on the Kingsfleet Course – open to all male members. No tee reservations. Just turn up, pay the entry fee, sign in and play.

Sunday 21st May – Mixed Three Ball. Two men and one lady in each team. Entry sheet in the conservatory.

Friday 26th May – the next 12 hole Texas Scramble. This time it will be a different format! Watch the notice board in the conservatory.

That is quite a lot to be going on with. Lots of opportunities to win a prize and perhaps a trophy. I hope many of you will chose to take part.

Finally – Summer Knockout Competitions. Round 1 of the Throgmorton Trophy and the Peppes Vases MUST be completed by the end of May. There will be no extensions, so please get your matches arranged as soon as possible.
