MIXED GREENSOMES STABLEFORD
WEDNESDAY 14th JUNE,2017
Sandford Springs Golf Club
A glorious sunny day met 14 pairs of competitors at the inaugural Mixed Greensomes Stableford held at Sandford Springs Golf Club.
Mixed golf always proves to be an excellent challenge and although Greensomes Stableford is widely considered to be a slightly kinder format, we were all intrigued to see what the scores would be. As the scores came in, reports from the field concluded that the greens were very tricky but the course was in great condition and the weather couldn’t have been better (if you like it hot of course!).
Quite a range of scores were being recorded back at the clubhouse but in fact only 12 points separated the entire field. An intimate knowledge of those tricky greens proved to be an advantage and we were thrilled to see Sandford Springs’ Captains Graham Hewitt & Morven Jordan at the top of the leaderboard with 39 points.
Second place was secured by Blackmoor pairing Sallyanne Parker-Butts and Simon Butts with a very respectable 37 points and third place went to Lesley & Peter Catchpole from Osborne with 33 points.
A great day was had by all. Our thanks to the entire team Sandford Springs including Captains Graham & Morven for being excellent hosts and to Anthony Dillon for his help in making the day happen. Thanks also to Ann Younger for her hard work in organising another excellent Hampshire event and to Di Stock, Jackie Keay, David Wheeler and John Moore for making sure the day run smoothly.
We look forward to hosting another mixed event next year. Stay tuned for more information about the date and venue.
