Right Digital Solutions Golf Day

27 July 2021

 

So we all met at the lush Stratford Park Golf and Country Club around 10am on Saturday 3rd July.                     

There were 23 players in battle to become the 1st RDS golf Champion of 2021.

The weather was ok at the start of play but by the time 1st group had just got onto the 18th Green, the heavens opened and to say Noah would have struggled was an understatement as about a month’s rain fell in about 30 minutes!! As you can see from this video:

After the heavens opened we we abandoned ship and sought refuge in the clubhouse for a well-earned beverage. Therefore scoring the game over 14th holes was the only option open to the committee.

We would like to say a big thanks Dave Edge for getting the venue sorted and to our ever green Sponsors Kyocera and Nas for providing us with some great laughs and prizes on the day.

We had a few winners of certain competitions and they were:                                                  

  1. Wooden Spoon Winner -  a very wet looking Jim Ford
  2. Nearest the Pin on the 163yrd 8th - great drawn in 8 iron to 15ft......Martin Warmsley    
  3. Nearest the Pin on the 151yrd 17th across a huge lake - another great strike nearly getting a hole in 1 was a 9 iron by Tim Hubbard's Guest Mr Sam Morris                               
  4. Longest Drive on the Par 5 9th - Dave Edge by some 10 yards from Mr Steads previous effort.         

Top 5 in the singles comp: 

5th - Dave Edge - 25 pts     off 9  

4th - Anthony Hutt  - 26pts    off 17                                   

3rd - Fiona Bradshaw - 26pts off 21 ( on count back).                              

2nd - Richard Hutt - 27pts off 23                          

1st & RDS Champion - Brian Stead - 28pts    off 4                                                                  

Sadly as we weren't an even number we couldn't do a Team Event but if we had Mr Seelely's team would have smashed it........ahh well we didn't ...........so they didn't!! ;-)                                       

Thanking everyone for taking the time to take part in a great day.   

The next event is open to all comers and will be announced in the next few weeks to take place in September or October .  

Thank you,

The RDS Golf Committee.
