HLG Veterans Championship – Thursday 9th June at Weybrook Park GC

The Veterans Championship is always such a lovely day. Old golfing friends reuniting, happy golfers playing good, bad and indifferent golf and appreciative players enjoying a grand day out.

The weather at Weybrook was decidedly spring like and a tad blustery for some. The new course lay out flummoxed many competitors but some excellent scores were posted.

The first to set out were the Division 1 players playing a Medal. Vets Captain Sue Gale thanked the green staff for the set up of the course which proved challenging.

The results of this competition were as follows:-

3rd Nett with a score of 75 was Alison Cox from Hayling GC

2nd Nett with a score of 74 was Jose Kellenberger from Hockley GC

And this year’s Veterans Nett Champions with a score of 73 was Allena Doley from Meon Valley. Allena had enjoyed or suffered a handicap cut at the weekend which took her out of the Division 2 stableford competition into thiscompetition. Congratulations and very well done Allena , who next year becomes the new Veterans Captain.

The Gross Champion with a wonderful score of 81 was Ailsa Fraser from the Army GC.

As always we have a Super Seventies prize for the best stableford points over the two divisions which was won this year by Cookie Bridgeman from Royal Winchester Golf Club with 33 points.  Cookie was very surprised that she was actually over 70!!!!

HLG are very grateful to Lee and all the staff at Weybrook Park who welcomed us with open arms and provided a great facility and atmosphere.  Thanks also to the catering staff who provided a tasty repast.  And grateful thanks to the Starter from Weybrook Park as well as all the ball spotters.  And where would we be without the wonderful referees of Di Stock and Carron Schusler.
