WHC Golf Day 2017

John Stockings - Winner of the WHC Golf Day 2017

The annual WHC golf day was, once again, blessed with some outstanding weather on Friday. The day began with bacon sarnies in the clubhouse before the mornings Texas scramble competition. Some very competitive scores were posted with fractions splitting the leading three groups. The eventual winners being Penny, Hills and Fiona.

Onto the afternoon where the morning golfers were joined by more hopefuls looking for glory, and to take home the coveted WHCGS Claret Jug.

With near perfect playing conditions, some good scores were developing, despite the traditional drives off the 1st tee with a hockey stick. The first prize to be decided was the nearest the pin in 2 on the 7th hole. Eddie Allen looked set to pick this up, with his marker 5ft from the pin with just one group to play, before Andrew Dart stuck a 160 yard 7 iron to 4ft to thwart his cousin and take the spoils.

The sausage baps and Peroni on the 10th tee didn’t agree with WHC president JP, who was setting the pace at the turn with 20 points but could only add a further 4 on the back 9, picking up the wooden spoon. The longest drive marker went on a bit of journey up the fairway throughout the afternoon with the early leader being Bill Allen with a booming drive described as ‘quite far’. A couple more improvements were made by latter groups taking it ‘a bit further’, and ‘even further’ before John Stockings unleashed a ‘huge’ drive to take the contest out of question.

The Armitage’s were well in the prizes this year with Jon picking up the nearest the pin on the 16th and Fiona winning both the longest drive and best individual lady, adding to her Texas Scramble victory in the morning. The best team prize (top 2 stableford point scores on each hole) went to the very solid group of Tim Chamberlain, Ed Allen, Charlie Chamberlain and John Stockings with an untouchable score of 100 points.

The overall individual prizes were very well contested with 4 points separating the top 12. Third place went to Rich Hawson with 38 points, Tim Chamberlain lost out on countback to come second with John Stockings scoring 39 points (three over par gross) to claim the Claret Jug as WHCGS champion for the first time. What a fine player.

Thanks to everyone that supported the event, we hope you can all make it next year!
