125 Celebrations

June 4 2018

A fun filled weekend was organised to celebrate 125 years for Wells Golf Club. Greenstaff had worked hard on the layout of the old course, which caused the golfers to think. Alan and his team had planned hog roasts and barbecues for the evenings and the stage was set for everyone to enjoy themselves.

The first day’s competition was a bowmaker with Tony Blunden, Geoff Dyer and M Edgar winning with an amazing 88 points followed by G Ramsell, Ron Davey and Ian Mills 86 points on countback. The highlight of the day was Nick Wilson playing a hole in one, expertly rolling the ball down the slope and onto the green on the signature 10th hole. The best Ladies/Mixed team was Janette Norris, Linda Wright and Chris Gee.

The second day was a fourball better ball with B Marcham and R Gould first with 45 pts on countback and G Spinks/Ken Scadden in second place. In fact, 7 teams had 45 points! The first Ladies/Mixed team were Peter and Diane Ramsay.

John Chillington, President, thanked everyone for making it a celebration to remember, including the starters, ladies in the green room, the pro-shop, the caterers and the members.

Spain Golf Trip March 2018

April 9 2018

Tom and I hosted our annual golf coaching trip with eighteen members of Wells Golf Club at the Almenara Resort, Sotogrande, Spain. The trip consisted of coaching, clinics, on-course competitions within our five rounds of golf and at least one round with one of the Professionals. Unfortunately the weather was a little overcast and on some of the days we experienced some tough wet weather conditions, however this didn’t dampen the competitiveness and enthusiasm from everyone.

Each morning we used the driving range for coaching and the nearby short game facilities so the Professionals could fine tune everyone’s game. Included within the on-course coaching we composed a Ryder Cup style format for each days golfing, the teams were Team Heginbotham vs. Team Maggs.
This year Team Heginbotham won the overall event with a superb 1209 points, beating Team Maggs who fell behind early on in the week and finished with 1153 points.

Everyone was given a chance to play with a professional and the groups were mixed around to give everyone a chance to play with different people. The main formats throughout the week were stableford and matchplay, these formats suited the course conditions very well. On the final day everyone played singles matchplay in handicap order to complete our Ryder Cup event.

Handicap order meant a battle between myself and Assistant Professional Tom who was making his debut on our annual golf trip, therefore the pressure was on him... Early in the round I made back-to-back birdies to take a quick lead against Tom. We exchanged quite a few birdies, but after being five up through 12 holes the victory was in sight, Tom started to level out the damage with wins on the 13th and 14th however couldn’t turn around my early lead, in the end I won 4&3 leaving Tom sulking in his buggy and contemplating where he wants to come again next year! It means I’ve got the bragging rights for the next year.

I’m pleased everyone had a fantastic time despite the poor weather. We are already planning our annual golf trip again next year and are hopeful to book a little earlier to ensure we get the best deal and tee times. If you’re interested in attending, then please let one of the Professionals know via email here so we can gather some numbers ahead of booking our next trip.
