The scoring was pretty impressive today with 44pts just sneaking you into the top 10.

Penultimate winter league report

Week 9 of the winter league was interrupted by the rain which has been a common theme over the last couple of months and only gave the chance to a handful of golfers to submit a card during the week.

Phil Hunt went out early on Saturday morning and set the score to beat with a solid 44pts. John Lindsay and Paul Horton both shot 42pts on Sunday and during the week Roger Harris shot a good 41pts which left Phil on top for this week.

The league has a new leader with Peter Dixon overtaking Tom Park by 1 point. Plenty of other contenders are still with in chance of winning the winter series with at least 5 people below the top 2 places still in with a chance, who can hold their nerve in week 10

The Committee

12 Under / 13 Over round 3

41 players took part in this weekends round 3 of the 4 round series and with the weather again being calm it was a chance to put a low score in.

Peter Dixon continued his good form with a nett 64 and Alan Cabot was his usual steady self and shot a 63. Chris Whur backed up his last low score with another great score of 62 but this was just beaten by James Hibbs on count-back who's 2 over gross back 9 gave him the lowest score in the 12 Under

In the 13 Over section Frank Booth and Joe Straiton both scored a solid 45pts which ended up not good enough to get into the top two. Paul King scored a tidy 24pts on his front 9 to help get his final total to 46pts but this fell just short as Danny Teixiera pipped him by 1 shot to take top spot with 47pts

Midweek win for Martin

A nice day greeted those that managed to get out in the Atlantic Cup.

Going out early was Jerry O'Connor who shot 45pts which included a level gross back 9.
Carl Gray had another storming front 9 which gave him 25pts but a sloppy start to the back 9 slowed his progress and his 45pts wasn't enough to topple Jerry.
Leading the way with 24pts on the front 9 and a whopping 27pts on the back was Martin De Gruchy who's total of 51pts lblew the rest of the field away. Well played Martin

Big scoring in the January Medal

With the tees moved forward due to the recent wet weather and a surprising calm day, all the ingredients were there for some low scores .

In division 2 the top 3 scores all hit scores below 60 with a nett par 70 only good for 25th place :)
Peter Clark came 3rd with a strong back 9 giving him a nett 59 but Terry Vaughan managed to pip him on count-back to second spot with his 1 under back 9. Top spot went to Stephen Allaway who also shot a 1 under back 9 to give him a gross 70 / nett 57, great scoring Stephen.

Not so many scores in the 50s in division 1 but still some solid scoring was on show.
Craig Tucker hit 5 birdies to shoot the lowest gross of the day but his 69 / nett 62 was only good for 3rd spot. Second spot went to Peter Dixon with his nett 61 continuing his run of low scores in comps. Top of the tree was Chris Whur who birdied 2 of the last 3 holes to give him a nett 59, well played Chris.

Winter League week 6

We wont have many better days this winter than the 50 players faced today and the scores certainly reflected the conditions.

In division 1 Chris Haws and a great run on the back 9 to give him a 69 gross / 63 nett. In second place was Kenny Mitchell with a nett 62 but leading the way was Steve Pearson with a gross 68 / nett 61.

A reversal of the last round of winter league with most of the top scorers coming from the weekend players.

40pts was only good enough for 6th and 5th place with Noel Quinn's 41pts taking 4th place. Carl Gray and Lawrence McManus both scored 42pts but a strong finish on the back 9 from Lawrence gave him second spot.

Top of the league this week was Frank De Ornelas who made it 2 wins in a week with his 43pts from Sundays round, well done Frank.

12 Under / 13 Over round 1

Small field today with only 21 players taking part in round 1 of the 12 Under / 13 Over series

In the 12 under section there were some strong nett 66s from Alan Cabot and Peter Dixon with Peters stronger back 9 giving him runners-up spot. Top of the tree was Frank De Ornelas who continued his strong golf of late with a nett 63, a good start to the series.

The good scoring was also on show in the 13 Over with Ben Holts and Richard Cornick 38pts taking 4th and 3rd spot. Arno Chilvers has been putting some good scores together recently and his 42pts today was another decent score to give him 2nd spot. This wasn't enough to beat his playing partner Frank Booth who birdied his last 2 holes to give him 43pts

LMGC Classic 1 - Les Mielles Salver

A sunny, chilly day greeted the 63 players taking part in the first classic of the new season.

With the wind picking up through the day, it gave the early starters a chance to post the scores to beat and they didn't disappoint

Simon Bell continued his good form to shoot a great score of nett 62 but this was soon overtaken by Martin Smith who's 2 eagles helped him to a gross 66 / nett 61 and the lead from the morning starters.

There were some good scores of nett 65s in the afternoon but no one could get close to Martins score giving him a deserved victory in this weekends medal

Winter League 3

This was certainly a week for the midweek golfers with the top 10 scorers all coming from the people playing during the week after the weekend of wind and rain

Reigning champion Paul Gicquel scored well over the weekend with a solid 38pts but this wouldn't be enough to hold off the midweek challengers

On Tuesday Tom Park backed up weeks 2 victory with another good score of 42 but top score on this day went to new member Dan Garland who's 7 birdies and gross 31 back 9 gave him 43 points.

Arno Chilvers shot a brilliant 27pts back 9 on Thursday to take runners up spot but winning week 3 with 44pts on Friday afternoon was David Streets.

The table after 3 weeks will be posted tomorrow night in the club leagues section

November Medal

A hard scoring day at Les Mielles today with the a constant strong wind and teh odd shower through the day.

In Division 1 Martin Smith continued his good form with a solid gross 74 / nett 69 but up stepped Frank De Ornelas who is also swinging well to take the lead. Frank must of thought he had won the day being in the penultimate group but Paul Horton had other ideas and shot the round of the day with his 73 / nett 62 to storm to victory.

Division 2 was heading for a tight finish with Tom Carolan and Paul Biddulph both sitting on nett 69s but Gerry Brennan shot a great round of nett 64 to take top spot by a big margin and earn himself an ESR on the last qualifying comp of the season.

Winter League round up

The winter league series is up and running with week 2 coming to an end on Friday

Week 1 saw some good weather for most the week and the scoring reflected this with some solid scoring. Seniors Jerry O'Connor and Chis Frost both scored well with 39pts but this wasn't enough to topple the top 3. Martin Smith, Simon Bell and Dave Belo all scored 40 points with Dave ending up on top with the strongest back 9.

Week 2 provided some tougher conditions for scoring which saw Karl Rockett lead the way for most the week with his 38pts but up stepped Tom Park late on the week to pip Karl by 1 shot and win week 2 with his 39pts.

Bogey Cup

The biggest winner today was the weather with over 50% of the field not finishing their rounds.

Scoring proved as difficult as staying dry today with only one person finishing with a plus figure.

Chris Jones, Joe Straiton and Steve Campbell all finished on a level 0 for their rounds but winning the day with a 1 score was Alan Cabot who shot a strong back 9 to pip his playing partner by 1

Chateau des Ormes away match report

With a lead of 16 - 2 from the home match earlier on in the year, 12 Les Mielles set off with the intention of bringing the trophy back to Jersey for the first time since this Club match was setup.

Saturday afternoon was the foursome matches and the team were looking to get the job done as quick as possible. Chateau des Ormes had other ideas though and won the first 2 games of the day only for Fabio and Martin Smith to peg it back for Les Mielles way with a victory. Unfortunately the last 3 matches all went to the french team for them to take the the first day 5 - 1 and reduce the overall score to 17 - 7.

The single matches on the Sunday was a more even affair with Arno Chilvers having a big 6&5 victory and Martin Smith also winning big 4&2 to finish the weekend unbeaten, which is more than we could say for Chris Frost who ended up winless after his 5&4 tonking in the singles. Martin Saunders, Mike Veillard, Mike Burley and David Nolan also won their matches to make the singles a 6 - 6 tie and gave Les Mielles a resounding victory of 23 to 13. 

Thanks to Fabio for getting this all organised and well done to all the players.

President report

You couldn't have asked for a better day to greet the 63 players taking part in the President Trophy.

The competition was organised only recently but our President has whizzed around the last couple of weeks getting his prizes and making sure the numbers were well represented for the presentation and dinner. Great to see this sort of effort and it shows what can be achieved, well done Herbie !

Chris Frost went out in the first group and set the clubhouse lead with a nett 68 which could of been so much better if his pin seeking tee shot on the 6th hadn't ran past the OB post. Martin Smith quickly topped this shooting the lowest gross of the day with a 72 / nett 66.
Surprisingly this kept the lead until the last person of the day returned his card when Frank de Ornelas matched Martins score of nett 66 but had a stronger back 9 to take top spot on CB.

Photos can be seen below of the dinner and the multiple winners of the final top 3 and various closest the pins and category winners

October Medal kicks of the new season

LMGC Classic 6 brings 2017 to a close

This weekends medal was the last of the 2016 / 2017 season and brings to an end the LMGC Classic series

The conditions were tough with a constant wind all day and sporadic rain that got persistent during the afternoon.

David Streets and Stan Irvine both shot nett 66 but this wasnt enough to topple the early morning leaders which saw Kevin Jubb take runners up spot with a solid nett 64 and Peter Gow winning the day with a great score of 62. Peter's round consisted of 2 birdies on the back 9 for a level gross 34 and fully deserved his victory

L'Etacq Cup

After the weather we have had recently it was a welcome surprise to be able to play the Sunday medal in calm and sunny conditions.

Phil Grehan continued his good form of late to shoot another mid sixty round but it wasnt good enough to get him into the top 3 places

Richard Streets shot a level gross front 9 but couldnt quite continue his form onto the back 9 and finished with a good nett 65. This was matched by Peter De Momme who's stronger back 9 secured him runners up spot on count-back.

Top spot went to Shane Fitzsimons who deserved his victory with a great round of golf. 4 birdies on the front 9 gave him a 2 under front 9 and this was backed up by a further 3 birdies on the back to give him a gross 68, nett 64.

David G is back

Well done to David Grant for winning the midweek stableford comp.

The wind showed its teeth all day making scoring tough for the 28 players taking part. The morning starters had some rain to negotiate with the afternoon players having freshly seeded greens to try and putt on (half way through a comp !) .

Stephen Cleary, Peter Gow and David Grant all returned scores of 39pts but with a level gross 34 back 9 for 23pts, David Grant took top spot on count-back

Andrew Adlington must of thought it was going to be a long round after his 10 on the first but he put this behind him to blitz the next 17 holes and end up with a nett 64.

This wasn't enough to overtake the early clubhouse leader Tom Park who had 2 double bogeys on the front 9 but parred the other 16 holes to finish with a gross 74 gross / nett 63, good win Tom

July Medal result

A great turnout saw 89 players take part in the July Medal, 14 more than our Open last weekend !

Most of the big scores this weekend were in Division 2 with some low scoring.

There were multiple low scores in the mid 60s with Herbie Jennett coming 4th with a 65 and Frank De Ornelas coming 5th also with a 65, great seeing these two back in the prizes.

Mention for Alan Cabot who shot the lowest gross with a 78 in the afternoon when the wind got tough.

Gerry tee'd off in the first slot of the morning and his 24pts on the back 9 saw him to a winning total of 43pts

Richard Summerfield scored a healthy 23pts on his front 9 and but couldn't quite match this on the back 9 and his 43pts was beaten on count-back.

Few players finished with 38pts behind these two, good totals on what was a tough scoring day with a strong cross wind all day.

A damp May Medal

The wet weather didn't quite deliver what was promised in the forecast, good news for the 66 players that took part in this weekends medal.

In Division 2, Joe Straiton continued his strong form this year with another good score of nett 65 but this was only good enough for 3rd place as James Styles matched Joe's score of 65 but pipped him to 2nd spot on count-back. Top spot went to Peter Walker who had a great back 9 to help him to a nett 64 giving him a good win

Alan Maclachlan took 3rd spot in division 1 with a nett 69 that could of easily been a few better. Dave Belo shot a 2 over back 9 to take runners up spot with a nett 68 but winning the day was Graeme Hebenton who has been playing good golf for the last month and was due a good win, well done.

Barber wins the Jack A'Court

Only 24 players braved the wet weather today but that didnt hamper Nick Barber from shooting a great score of nett 62 and winning his 3rd comp in the last couple of months, current form player.

Edward Loader backed up his 4th place from the midweek medal with another solid score, his 67 giving him 2nd spot

John Lindsay showed again his steady scoring with his 70 earning him 3rd spot.

Thursday Medal 1 result

Really good to see a good turnout for the first Thursday Medal in the series of 6 with 50 members taking part today

Hampshire 7s team member Alan Maclachlan played a solid round to finish third with a nett 65 but this wasn't enough to take the clubhouse lead from Frank Booth who shot a great round of nett 62.
Frank must have gone home thinking he had done enough to take top spot but Tom Hughes shot his best round for a gross 74 / nett 58 to take the victory. Tom was 1 over gross on the front 9 and kept his composure well on the back 9 to shoot a great score and reduce his handicap by 3, well done.

1st HOLE NOTICE

Following the AGM Monday 7th November I have been asked to clarify what the options are for balls played from the tee at the first hole. There appears to be a lot of confusion with members quoting a new local rule that has been explained to them by the course representatives. I am writing to the rules committee of the R & A for a definitive ruling on this matter. Until that ruling has been given then the following interpretation of the rules will stand. I would urge all members to comply with this until further notice and to explain this to other players. Failure to comply with this ruling during a competition may result in disqualification.

1. There is no new local rule that applies to the playing of this hole.
2. A ball played to left of the new white stakes between the 1st and 4th holes is out of bounds and another ball must be played from the tee under penalty of stroke and distance (3 off the tee, 5 off the tee, 7off the tee etc).
3. This obviously also applies to balls that go left and enter the water hazard on the 4th hole.
4. Out of bounds runs in a straight line from stake to stake from the first stake near the 1st tee box to the furthest most stake behind the 4th tee.
5. If a ball is played from the tee that goes to the right and it not virtually certain that the ball has entered the water hazard then a provisional ball should be played from the tee.
6. If the original ball is found outside the water hazard then it must be played as it lies or if it is unplayable (under one of the bushes in front of the water hazard but not in the hazard) it may be declared unplayable and it may be dropped using any of the options available under Rule 28.
7. If the original ball is found in a water hazard then it may be played as it lies or under the penalty of one stroke it may be dropped using any of the options available under Rule 26.
8. If the original ball is not found then the player must continue with the provisional ball or if a provisional has not been played then he must return to the tee and play again.

It is important to understand that the player and his marker must be virtually certain of where the ball crossed the margin of the hazard in order to invoke Rule 26. This basically means that someone (the players in your group, the course ranger, another player on the course playing nearby) saw where the ball went. It cannot be assumed that the ball is in the hazard just because it cannot be found outside of the hazard.

Full explanation of rules 26 and 28 are in the rules of golf booklet available in the club house I recommend that all players carry one.
