  • 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

    I have attached the notice for the 28th AGM being held later on this month, please click on the link below 

    2017 AGM

  • 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

    bigpicWith 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

  • 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.

    It was truly a great day for golfing for the midweek stabelford competition, we dont get many days like this at Les Mielles.

    Jerry O'Connor set the pace early on with his 40pts but this was soon beaten by our very own President Herbie Jennett, continuing his good form to take the clubhouse top the leaderboard with a strong 43pts

    The scoring didnt subside through the day with multiple scores in the 40's coming close but not quite able to match the leading score.

    4 birdies, 1 eagle led to a gross 66 and a big total of 48pts. I had the pleasure of playing with Alan and havent seen golf played like this for a while, he could easily of beaten the course amateur record. Well done Alan, a great round of golf and down to 5.5hcp, deserved !

    The day went really well and it was good seeing players all having lunch together and swapping their tales from the morning round.
    The pace of the groups was superb and helped the day go smoothly and the golf didn't disappoint with some superb scoring in both rounds.

    The Elaine Plain provided some serious scoring with Dale Clark coming in early with a terrific score of nett 60 which he must of thought would of won round 1 and give him a healthy lead.

  • 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

    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.

  • Joel wins LMGC Classic 4

    Well done to Joel Pinto on winning the LMGC Classic medal with a nett score of 65. With 2 double bogeys on the front 9 and a bogey on the 11th he was probably thinking of hopefully making the buffer but a further 3 birdies gave him a 32 back 9 and top spot.

    David Streets also had a very good back 9 to give him a nett 66 and runners up spot with Graeme Hebenton continuing his good form of late to also shoot nett 66 and come third

    Our summer Thursday Medal series starts this week and with our daylight getting longer hopefully we will get some good numbers playing our midweek medal

  • Winter League winner decided

    Well done to Paul Gicquel for having a strong final week and taking the winter league title with his late surge.

    Andrew Barton shot a solid 41pts which improved his score by 2 points and gave him 4th place

    Tom Park who was leading the series couldn't reproduce his magic from previous weeks and could only manage 29pts, dropping him down to 3rd place.

    Joe Straiton has had a good winter and even with his general play handicap reduction continued to score well. His final week score of 44pts took his total to 254, a good enough total to win normally but still giving him a very good second place

    Paul has had some big scores through the series and with 37pts being his lowest counting score another good total would get him into the prizes. Paul produced a great round of 47pts which improved his total by 10 points and gave him a winning total of 256 points.

    A good winter series this year with a high amount of cards returned and an exciting finish to end it. The scoring this year has been phenomenal with the winning total the highest for quite a few years, well done Paul.

    Les Mielles GC versus La Moye GC report


    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.

    2016 AGM Agenda


    Week 1 of the winter league stableford series concluded on Friday with some good scores being returned during the week.

    68 players took part and with the course in good condition it was a chance to get off to a good start

    36pts accounted for 10% of the field but this wasn't enough to touch the top scorers. Chris Jones kept up his usual steady scoring with a solid 39 points which gave him a credible 3rd spot

    David Somma shot a solid 42pts which included a level gross front 9 for 24pts but this just lost out to Phil Grehan who also shot 42pts and won it with 20pts on the back 9 to take it on count back.

    Good luck in the upcoming weeks
