Greetings from Nick Ellis
Naunton Downs Golf Club - PGA Golf Professional

Greetings golfers, 

I'm sure that you have all experienced a birdie or two out on the golf course but how many of you can say you have a Bull

Well, that's what happened on Wednesday when the green keepers arrived to work that morning to find that a small herd of bulls had escaped from a nearby field and were out enjoying some time on the golf course. 

Unfortunately it resulted in some minor damage from their hoof prints to some of the greens and bunkers and there were a few areas of fresh dung which would have made playing a shot from very unpleasant! 

We are confident that these damaged areas will be repaired quickly and will not disrupt play too much. With the greens due to be verti-drained in the next two weeks it will also aid the recovery process.


Competition news 

Winter League

The week has seen the first round of the men's and ladies winter league being played in very un-winter like conditions as we have been bathed in glorious sunshine all week! This year we have seen a great response for the men's winter league with more pairs playing than ever before which is great as it will keep people playing through the winter months when it is very easy to put the clubs away and hibernate. The first round was a greensomes stableford format and the scoring was pretty good in the fantastic conditions as 13 pairs managed to beat the par score of 36 points.

Top of the pile was my in-form son, Dylan and his partner on the day Charlie Whitehill who came in with a great score of 47 points. Dylan takes great delight in telling me (quite often) that he will soon be beating me with his gross score and that he might have to give me some shots soon ….. I look forward to that!! 

They finished 4 points clear of their nearest rivals Steve Bajdala-Brown and Nic Hayward (43 points) and one point further adrift were Matt Rose and Enrico Green on 42. New pairing of Dennis Murphy and Cameron Jack were another point back on 41 points.

The results can be found by clicking here.

In the ladies competition it was Sue Wood and Victoria Logue who set the early pace with a score of 35 points with Andrea Dawson / Gill Ashton and Jo Cunningham and Cathryn Leftwich one shot back on 34 points.
