CAPTAIN’S DAY WASH OUT

DSC_0023

It was a very disappointing day yesterday when due to the unprecedented amount of heavy rain that fell all day that our biggest competition of the year had to be cancelled, it was especially disappointing for our captain Frank Gallagher after all the hard work that had been put in by himself and the committee. The captain would like to thank everybody who helped out during the day especially the green staff, the golf and ski center and everybody that was involved, and also the Ashburn hotel for their help and support on this day.The good news is that the competition will go ahead next week  weather permitting  and everybody can enjoy the day in dryer conditions.

THERE WILL BE A MEMBER’S NIGHT ON FRIDAY THE 1ST AUGUST TO HELP REPAIR THE PITCH MARK’S, AND REPLACE THE DIVOT’S TO HELP GET  THE COURSE IN GREAT CONDITION FOR CAPTAIN’S DAY ON SATURDAY THE 2ND OF AUGUST, WE WOULD ASK AS MANY MEMBER’S AS POSSIBLE TO COME ALONG AND HELP OUT.

CHRIS SHOOTS NEW COURSE RECORD

CHRIS WATTS

Chris breaks course record to win Hugh Wilson Shield

It was a record breaking weekend at Silverwood golf club on Saturday 19/7/14 with Chris Watt  breaking the course record at the club by two shots with an unbelievable gross 64. Chris had a fantastic front nine of 28 shots which equalled 25 point’s with two eagles at the 1st and par four 4th hole, three birdies at the 7th 8th and 9th holes and four pars at the 2nd 3rd 5th and 6th holes, and at this stage a 59  was a real possibility, but a couple of three putts on the 11th and 17th holes but paid to that target. He did however have three birdies at the 13th 15th and 18th holes and four pars at the 10th 12th 14th and 16th holes for a one under back nine, and 20 points, and a great total of 64 gross and 45 points to win by one point.
