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

Well done to Graeme Hebenton and his partner for winning the handicap JGU Foursomes held at the Royal Jersey Golf CLub over the weekend.

After playing a solid 36 holes on the Saturday to qualify for the matchplay rounds on the Sunday, they continued their good form to win their matches and take the title.

Well done Graeme

April Medal

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

LMGC Classic 3 - Spring Medal

The weather couldn't of been further from spring with a big downpour in the morning and force 6 winds in the afternoon which brought a winter chill with it.

Andy Wood went out early in the morning and set the score to beat with a nett 64 that consisted of 4 birdies.
Joe Straiton found some of his form from earlier on in the year to shoot a nett 63 but winning the day was Brian Williams who's 2 over back 9 and 3 birdies gave him the best score of the day with a 62.

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 final table can be seen in the leagues section, well done to the top 3 and to everyone else who took part in this years main winter competition.

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.

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

Even with the extended week over the festive period only 32 players managed to submit a score with the north side closed for most of the second week.

On the first weekend Peter Dixon continued his big scoring from last week with another solid score of 46pts which consisted of a hole-in-one on the 6th

Tom Park scored another solid score of 45pts during the first week to keep his good scoring in this year series.

Topping week 6 was Carl Gray who shot an excellent 25pts on the front 9 and followed this up with 22pts on the back to give him a very nice 47pts.

League table will be updated over the weekend

Top scorer this week went to Peter Dixon with his solid 45pts, the top score of the winter series to date.

Week 6 starts on December 23rd and is extended for 2 weeks due to it being over the festive period.

Current table can be seen in the Club leagues section

December Medal

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.

Division 2 scoring was just as impressive with Frank Booth nett 63 and Simon Bells 62 taking 3rd and 2nd respectively. Shooting the lowest score of the day and winning div 2 was David Nolan with his nett 59, great scoring !

Winter week 4

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

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.

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

A miserable day at les mielles today that started off windy and got windier and wet as they day went on with no afternoon players returning a score.

With only 3 scores in Division 1, Craig Hartley secured 3rd place with a solid nett 86. Trevor Simon took second spot with a nice 74 but with the lowest gross of the day and winning score in division 1, Andrew Barton won the day with a nett 72.

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.
