24th ANNUAL CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP

QUEEN’S BIRTHDAY REPUBLICAN TROPHY (the ‘BEIGE JACKET’)

ROYAL NORTHBRIDGE G.C. – Monday 14th June 2021
TD Rick Butler

2021 Event: 
The main rules for the day were:

TD Rick Butler was the deserved winner for the fifth time on countback from back nine winner Nick Hillyard.  A tie on the front nine was shared between Neil and Ken.  Rick added to the ball supply and everyone got got at least one.  The rules worked well and even the TD was happy with the speed of play.
Another great day of Smergery, thanks Rick and yes we do want you to TD it next year!

DDD Matchplay Championship (back to top)

The 2020 Draw, Seeding and Rules

Click on thumbnail to open full size

Competition started Sunday 12 July, concluded 11 October 2020

Report on 11 October's play:

Terrific turnout of 12 players for the final of the DDD Matchplay Championship.  In an absolute nail biter, Thornto and SU arrived on the 18th tee all square with Steve having the benefit of a shot over Peter on the 18th.  Peter finished with a 5/2 ahead of Steve's 7/1 to win 1 up.  So Thornto took the massive number of balls on offer to lose a shot while SU took home a bonus six balls donated by Phil S. 
Thornto will of course be TD for next year's event and may consider changing this to a two shot major with second prize losing one shot if sufficient currency is available. 
And a great job by outgoing Assistant Hon DDD TD Mike (The Scientist) Bell who developed the awe inspiring 
Current Form Index (CFI) to seed us players!

 

TD congratulates DDD winner Peter Thornton

St Nicholas Cup at St Michaels   (back to top)

Wednesday 13 January 2021, 7:30am

Tournament Organiser:  Rick Butler

2021 Results:

Another perfect day at St Michaels - except for some of the golf! 
TD Rick, to facilitate fast play, said we could adopt the Irish Drop rule for unexpected lost balls (this excludes balls lost in red penalty areas).  In this case you drop at the nearest point to where the ball was lost for a two shot penalty. 

Team event was decided by best score on first 6 holes, best 2 scores on 7-12 and best 3 on 13-18.  There were just three points difference between the first four teams.  We started off the 10th tee.

Thanks as always to TD and long term St Micks member, Ricky B.
