Weekly Update

Plenty to report on now with the season well underway


Another 100 strong field entered the seasons first board competition, the Derek Oldham trophy on Saturday. Only 6 players scored 36 or better which was a reflection on the tough conditions that players faced. Congratulations go to Barry Diamond who will have his name etched in Tunshill history after scoring an impressive 40 points. It wasn’t as clear cut as it seems though as he won on a card play off with Steve Moody and Martin Harrison both shooting impressive 40 points.

This Thursday night 23rd April is sign up for the first captains final qualifier on Saturday 2nd may so we are expecting a good turn up at the clubhouse. The format to qualify is best two scores combined from the three qualifying rounds. The top 66 will qualify for the first day of the captains final weekend.

This coming Saturday’s competition is the Phoenix Trophy aggregate stableford  competition which again is a board competition.


The Ladies played the rescheduled first round of the Blincoe Cup which was abandoned last week due to the weather. The results have been kept under wraps until the final round is played next weekend.

The closing day for the second round of the Daily Mail foursomes was yesterday so hopefully next week we will know who Becky Owen and Joanne dean will face in the 3rd round.

Open day

Many thanks to those who have put their name down for the open day on bank holiday weekend Sunday 24th may. There are only three times in the morning and four in the afternoon available now. I know of another possible two teams from the club which would make 20 of the possible 25 slots taken with over a month to go still and without advertising to local clubs. Well done and thank you for your commitment.


Mobile phones

As mentioned on Thursday night, can I remind all members that mobile phones are forbidden on the course unless in extreme emergency. If an emergency call needs to be made or taken, please try and go out of sight/hearing distance of other players and keep it as short as possible.

Enjoy your week and see you around the club
Many thanks
Competition secretary
