Penultimate Medal of 2018

With only the LMGC classic medal remaining of the 2018 season, 40 players took part in the L'Etacq Cup on another glorious day.

Michael Burley went out in the first slot and shout 2 x 38 to give him a gross 76 which gave him a strong nett 60. Richard Summerfield shot a 2 over front 9 and with a birdie on 10 was well on course to go sub 60 until the 16th came along and put a dent in his hopes which left him with a nett 64. Stephen Murray had a tough front 9 but this behind him to shoot a a 4 over back 9 which gave him a nett 63 and 2nd spot.

Continumm Mixed Greensomes 2018

September 8th saw the annual Continuum Mixed Greensomes take place at Les Mielles with over over 34 pairs taking part in the event.
The winner would be the best gross score of the day with there also being prizes for the best nett scores and stableford score. Teams had the choice of entering the stableford format after the 12th hole and before teeing of on the 13th but this would forfeit them from the gross and nett prizes. 
It was so nice seeing many golfers from various clubs playing in this event and with Dan the sponsor throwing in some subtle challenges it was a day that kept giving.
The evening dinner and presentation was attended by virtually everyone and it was great to have the whole restaurant to the golfers which created a real buzz.
Big praise to the ladies (especially Annette) for organizing the event so well and providing great comms during the week. A special thanks to Dan Hare for once again sponsoring the event and being a great host. Only Dan could get everyone playing heads and bums for bottles of wine...! Well done all and i can see this event really growing into something special.
Congratulations to all the winners who can be seen by clicking on the link below and ive also added some photos of the night in the photos sub-section. 

 Continuum winner 2018

Another stunning day at les mielles was welcomed by everyone taking part in the last round of the Eclectic series.

Dave Ferre continued his strong form with another sub par 68 but Stan Irvine and Dave Belo both beat this by 1 shot with Dave's stronger back 9 giving him 2nd spot.
With a nett 64 and winning his 2nd comp was Anthony Boye who seems to have taken to competition like a duck to water as well as earning himself an ESR.

Thursday Summer medal series comes to an end

The 7th and last Thursday Medal was played this week with the scores tight at the top so it was all to play for.

The morning players got the best half of the day with hardly any wind during the morning and the scores certainly reflected this.

Kenny Mitchell scored the best gross of the day with a gross 72 / nett 64 but this was soon beaten by Peter Gow who's nett 63 sealed him second spot. Topping the day was Richard Cadoret who shot a terrific nett 60 which also earn't him an ESR on his handicap.

The final league will be posted over the weekend with the top spots ending up really close

President Day 2018

It was great seeing the members get behind our president giving him the day and night he deserves

On the golf side the course was in pretty good condition which helped deliver some strong scores throughout the day. There were multiple 67s in the top 10 but holding the clubhouse lead early doors was Andy Wood who had 3 birdies on 4,5 & 6 for a 2 under front nine and a nett 64 for his 18 holes. Andy Hood continued his good form of late to go one better with his nett 63 but this wasnt enough to topple the leader Dave Ferre who shot a 1 over back 9 for a nett 61, a great score to win the day.

The 2s sweep was run for the first time with 30 people taking part. There were 11 2s but only 5 of those had entered the sweep to take a cut of the winnings.

The golf was followed by the meal and presentation with over 50 members attending, really good seeing this support for the President and im sure he was very proud of his day

Well done to all the winners, you can see some pictures from the evening in the photos sub-section

Thursday Medal 6

The penultimate Thursday Medal took place today on a day that started dry, got wet and then ended in sunshine.

Only the top 3 managed to get a reduction on their handicap which highlighted how tough the scoring was.

Paul Canas teed of late and had a tough start but dug in and had a steady 17 holes to finish 3rd with a nett 66.
Teeing off in the last group was Colin Wood who made the most of the calmer conditions to shoot a nett 64 but this wasnt enough to topple the clubhouse leader with Karl Rockett's 64 holding out as his very strong back 9 gave him top spot on count-back.

The league table will be updated in the next few days with only 1 more medal remaining this year. Best 4 scores from the 7 rounds count for the final total

O Hara wins the Open

A great turnout this year saw 112 players take part in the 2018 LMGC open.

The course was in good condition but a swirling wind that got stronger through the day made scoring difficult.

The top 3 places all went to early starters. Phil Grehan had a point to prove today and went out and shot 1 over gross on both sides which included 3 birdies and a nett 64 for 3rd spot.
Andy Wood took runners up spot with a nett 63. A strong front 9 started to unravel at the beginning of the back 9 but Andy dug in and finished well to completed a good round.

Well done to everyone that helped put this day together !

Alderney Cup report

A glorious day at Les Mielles today for a rare stableford competition.

The recent rain has brought the lush green back to the course but also greens that were playing very slow.

There were some very good scoring in the morning slots with Harry Carver scoring 43pts which was matched and bettered on count back by our very own President Herbie Jennett.

A couple players in the afternoon shot solid scores in the 40s but only one person managed to topple the morning early with Steve Pearson shooting a level gross 70 for 44pts.

Thursday Medal 2

Seems like players are getting to grips with the white tees with some low scores today and 12 players of the 33 beating par.

The morning starters set the scores to beat with Stephen Cleary, Jerry O'Connor and Joe Straiton all shooting nett 65 but it was Joe who had the stronger back 9 to have the clubhouse lead. Dave Belo and Karl Rockett got close to the leaders with nett 66 in the afternoon but it was Clive Malone who stole the show with a nett 62 and a first win, well done Clive

Eclectic / Deontic 1 and KO update

We have been blessed with some really good weather since qualifying golf began in March and it was no different for the medal comp on Sunday.

Andrew Perchard always does well in the eclectic series and he got of to a solid start this year with a nett 67. Alan Cabot has to be the most consistent golfer this year, always challenging for the top spots and his 67 was good enough for 2nd spot on CB. Taking top spot this weekend was Dave Belo who shot the best gross of the day and a nett score of 64 to win by 3.

Knockouts - the matchplay comps have given us some shock results with current holders being knocked out and hot favorites getting beaten. We have also only had a few bye's which is a big improvement on last year. Ive updated the KO sheets to show the latest results and will continue to update them every few weeks, these can be found in the knockout sub-section.

Mings Dynasty Cup

Only 22 players competed in the midweek stableford competition.

Most of the good scores came in the afternoon when the wind seemed to die a little after a breezy start. Steve Campbell had a solid back 9 of 23pts for a total of 38pts but this was beaten by 2 x 39pts from Jonny Buesnel and Peter Simon with Peter's 19pts on the back 9 giving him 2nd spot on CB.

LMGC Classic 4 - Captains Trophy

Another good day at Les Mielles was welcomed by the 70 players taking part in the 4th Classic of the 6 comp series.
The rain overnight had improved the greens slightly but they we were still giving out some surprises when putting which went unnoticed by the leaders, for this competition at least.

With the CSS set at 68 their were numerous players receiving a reduction for their nett 67 which was a nice surprise.
David Nolan and Ben Holt went 1 better and with a stronger back 9, Bens 66 gave him 3rd spot.
Micahel Veillard shot a nett 63 which on any other day would of won him the competition but going out in the first slot was Phil Grehan who shot 6 birdies on his a way to the lowest gross of the day and a nett 62. Well played Phil

Summer Medal series begins

A lovely spring day today at Les Mielles greeted the players taking part in the first Thursday Medal of the seven compmseries.

The course is still recovering from the long winter and with the greens in pretty poor condition it made scoring difficult.

There were a few decent scores of nett 70 from the morning starters but in the afternoon Alan Cabot and Carl Gray both shot 69 with Alan's 1 over gross back 9 giving him 2nd spot

Way out in front and grabbing the win today was Daniel McLaughlin who shot a magnificent nett 61, great scoring Daniel

O'Hara wins his first competition

The weather wasn't at its best for Sunday's Grantez Cup and with the greens running pretty bumpy scoring was never going to be easy.

Alan Cabot once again shot a solid round with a nett 71 but this was wasn't enough for a spot in the top 3 with Martin Smith and Adrian Huckson taking 3rd and 2nd spot respectively with their nett 70.

Out on his own was James O'Hara who teed off in the first group and shot the only score below par, winning his first competition with his nett 66, well done James.

Graeme Hebenton stars in the JGU Foursomes

Great to see 80 players taking part in this weekends medal, a good sign for the upcoming season.

Three players managed to beat par in division 2 with Steve Higginson 69 good enough for third spot. Paul Le Marquand shot a strong front 9 which helped him secure second spot with a 68 but winning division 2 with the best score of the day was Carl Gray with a 66.

In division 1 we had a bunch of 69s in the top 7 but with a nett 68 and taking third place playing his usual steady golf was Chris Jones. Dave Belo took second spot with a nett 67 but missed out on top spot on CB with James Laverty back 9 proving the stronger, well done James.

Qualifying golf finally arrives

After nearly 5 months since the last qualifying it was good to finally get our back tees back to the their normal positions

In Division 2 there were quite few nett 71s in the top 10 but with a nett 69 was Frank Booth who took 3rd spot. Steven Tindall equaled Franks score with a stronger back 9 which gave him the runners up spot on count-back but Matthew Cornic lead the way with his 68.

Martin Smith shot the lowest gross of the day with his 74 but this wasn't enough to break into the top 3. After his fine debut win in the Hampshire 7s, Peter Dixon continued his good form with a solid 68 for third spot. A pair of nett 66s occupied the top 2 spots with Paul Horton stronger back 9 taking the win from Jonathan Le Brocq on count-back.

Les Mielles beat St Clement in 7s

In a close match, Les Mielles overcame St Clements on Sunday 18th to progress to the next round where they will meet La Moye.

The team consisted of 4 guys making their debut in this competition and they were playing a strong St Clements side who had picked most of their top players so it was a good victory

Winter league week 10

The winter series 2018 was concluded last week with the snow paying havoc to the midweek golfers trying to get into the top 3.

Current leader Peter Dixon scored another solid score of 37pts to improve his total slightly. Tom Park was only 1 point behind and was one of only two people that managed to submit a card during the week. His score of 33pts would not be enough to get top spot.

Some big scores were scored in the final week. Kenny Mitchell shot a level par round for his 44pts with Stan Irvine going one better with his 45pts. Winning the final week was 2017 champ Paul Gicquel who shot a big 47pts which included two blobs and a 25pts front 9.

The afternoon slots had to deal with stronger winds but this didnt hold back the scoring with 4 people scoring 38pts

Dave Belo had the best front 9 of the day with 22pts but couldn't keep it going on the back 9. Frank Booth and Stan Irvine also scored 38pts but with 20pts on the back 9 Alan Cabot won the day on CB with his 38pts.

Mark le Vesconte and Stevie Muir both scored decent nett 63 but this was only good for 4th and 5th place

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.

2017 Financial report

I have added the financial report for last year in our members section in the news section

I will add the minutes from last nights AGM over the next couple of days but if you have any questions then please send us an email


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.
