Last week we held our annual Ladies Xmas Open Am-Am and Mother Nature blessed us with a more than acceptable day for golf, which remained dry and not too cold. We had a full compliment of teams in the 10:30am shotgun start, and scoring was quite tough on the day with only the top three teams shooting under par scores.

Congratulations to the winning team consisting of our Lady Captain Sarah Leonard, Cathy Greenwood, Chris Wicks and Ann Roberts, with a score of 74 pts, winning on the back nine.

Thank you to all that attended the event, we hope to see you all again next year!

The Spring Am-Am has now been re-arranged for 21st April due to extreme weather conditions. All tee times have been rolled over to that date.

Our first open event of the year is already around the corner; the Spring Open Am-Am. This competition is open to all golfers from any club as long as they have a valid handicap, and entry costs just £80 per team.

As always with our first open of the year, money raised will be put towards some furniture for the golf course. We have not made the decision on what we would like for the course yet but to give you an idea of what to expect, last year we bought some hand-made wooden bins, and in 2016 we bought some recycled plastic benches.

We still provide great prizes for this Am-Am, despite the fact that a good portion of the money is raised for the furniture, so we expect a nice amount of teams to take part as usual.

We appreciate every team that enters this event as it helps us improve the course for the people who play it. If you fancy a great day out for just £20 a person why not give us a call on 01964 670112 and book your team in? Times are available from 8am to 1pm.

Captain's Charity Am-Am and Casino Night was a Fantastic Event!

On Saturday 23rd July Men's Captain Alan Mackinnon hosted his Charity Golf Day and Casino Night raising funds for local charity Cash for Kids.

The golf day was a huge success with a full complement of teams for the 9am shotgun (20 teams), and the weather blessed the golfers with absolutely perfect conditions throughout the day. Temperatures rose to around 25 degrees and there was merely a light breeze to keep everyone cool.

The Half-Way House, which was one of the biggest talking points about the events, was sponsored by The Audio Room, and was playing music from a system set up by the sponsors, players agreed this was a very unique touch which went down very well!

Burstwick's Touring Pro Joe Coyle was on hand on the 10th tee to take tee shots for all the players in the field, with many people egging him on to go for the green which was some 300 yards away, and into wind!

Compliments about the course (especially the greens) were in abundance on the day and the scores reflected the good conditions. Congratulations to the winning team with a fantastic score (see below).

Alan Mackinnon had a great evening in store for guests, in the form of a Casino Night with live entertainment from singer Steve-O. Alan elected two bouncers who manned the door for the event, Alfie Tidder and Alex Hewitson, who did an excellent job! "If your name's not on the list, you ain't coming in!"

The two casino tables were attended by trained croupiers, one being a roulette table and the other blackjack. Our guests spent much of the night crowding the tables and trying to win big! As all proceeds were going to charity, there would only be one winner on the evening; the person with the most chips at the end of the night.

In true 'go big or go home' fashion, Joe Coyle managed to build up a huge bank of chips, earning him the crown of best player on the evening and winning a bottle of Prosecco for his achievement. There was also a best dressed couple award which went to Steve Young and Sarah Box for their fantastic outfits.

On behalf of Captain Alan Mackinnon the club would like to thank all that supported the event, helping make the day and evening a great success!

Burstwick Enjoys Most Successful Pro-Am to Date!

Nearly 100 people visited Burstwick on Friday 27th May to take part in our Annual Pro-Am sponsored by Santander, and it was a fantastic day with some great scoring!

The weather gods blessed us with hardly any wind at all and warm conditions which got better as the day wore on, the sun visited from 3pm onwards and into the evening which made for a very pleasant round for the later teams.

On the day we had tee sponsors on most holes and a half-way house sponsor which all contributed to a fantastic prize fund of £2800 for the professionals and £2000 worth in amateur prizes, making the Burstwick Pro-Am one of the best value events in the area.

Teams on the day came from all over Yorkshire and the course was looking the best it has ever been for the event. With scoreable conditions the day looked perfect for some low shooting from the professionals, and Alex Belt's course record of six under could have been seriously under threat.

The Yorkshire PGA greeted players as they registered for the competition, handing out pin placement cards and giving everyone information about how the course was playing, and free refreshments were on the tee ready for the players going on their journey. The half-way house which was sponsored by Premier Stores give players a chance to refuel on various savoury and sweet snacks, preparing for attack on the easier back nine.

When the scores started rolling in it was clearly visible that the added length on the course and inclusion of trees into play have made the course more difficult in the two years since the last Pro-Am, as the winning professional score was the highest it as ever been at 1-under par.

  • Straightest Drive (Hole 2) - L. Webster
  • Nearest Pin (Hole 5) - P. McDermott
  • Nearest Pin (Hole 14) - A. Mackinnon
  • Nearest Pin (Hole 17) - P. Daley

Congratulations to all that won prizes at the event, and thanks again for all the kind compliments about the course and supporting the club. See you all next year!

Over £2,000 Raised for Joe Coyle's Season!

As many will know, Saturday’s golf day and night do was all in aid of raising funds for Joe Coyle, to pay for his season on the Europro Tour.

As Joe earned a full card for the Europro Tour, it will cost around £10,000-12,000 to play all of these events, and as the prize fund matrix on the Europro Tour is heavily weighted to the top end, Joe needs to plan to cover at least 75 per cent of these costs beforehand.

On Saturday Joe hosted a fundraising Am-Am and evening event at Burstwick and managed to raise more than £2,000 for his season, which paired with some recently acquired sponsors means he is well over halfway to achieving his goal.

Joe has expressed that he would like to thank all that supported him on Saturday as without this support he could not go and pursue his dream. Joe can now get back playing some golf and hopefully making himself a successful career!

Thank you for your Support in the Course Furniture Am-Am!

LAST Saturday was our re-arranged Open Am-Am which was raising funds for course furniture at Burstwick and we had a great turn out.

After the original event - which was due to be held on March 5 - was cancelled due to inclement weather, we were forced to re-arrange the golf day at short notice, and to be quite honest I was fearing that due to other commitments we would see a lot of teams drop
out.

Course Furniture Fundraising Am-Am

Knowing that putting teams together for these type of events take a lot of organising for people (let’s be honest we all have jobs, families, other hobbies, etc), I was quietly hoping that we would achieve 20 teams, after the original event had 26 booked in, but running up to the event during the week things were starting to look promising, with phone calls left, right and centre from golfers confirming their tee times.

In the end we were just three teams shy of the original number, which we were absolutely delighted with! Especially considering the circumstances.

This meant that we could still afford to invest £1,000 in furniture for the course, which has resulted in four heavy-duty recycled plastic benches which are now in our maintenance shed waiting to be put out. Watch this space and you will soon see them being put out on the golf course, and thanks to everyone who supported us!

Spring Open Am-Am, raising funds for course furniture - Saturday 5th March 2016

Put your team into our Spring Open Am-Am on Saturday 5th March, it promises to be a great day! Teams cost just £80 to enter, and men, ladies and juniors are all welcome to compete. The event is in aid of raising money to go towards buying new furniture for the course (bins, benches, etc), so the more support we get the more the course will benefit!

Great Day at the Ladies Xmas Open Am-Am

On Monday we then held our annual Ladies’ Xmas Open Am-Am Shootgun in which 16 teams competed. Joanne Young’s team from Hainsworth won by a whopping six shots from the field with a great score of 78, with a hybrid team from Burstwick/Ganstead coming in second place on 72. Click here for the full results.

With a fantastic prize table on offer the top eight teams went away very happy and deservedly so after those great scores in, again, conditions that weren’t easy at all.
