Places available for the Burstwick Sixes Tournament

In just over a fortnight we will be hosting our Burstwick Sixes event which is a six hole pairs knockout tournament played over one day!

There are just 16 spaces available for the Burstwick Sixes tournament on Saturday, August 24!

Here’s how the tournament works; pairs are split into four groups of four and play each other in three, six holes ‘Round Robin’ matches. After 18 holes, players will have a small break and the winners of each group will play a six hole semi-final and in turn the winners of those matches will go on to play the final, while the losers take part in a third place play-off.

There is a £260 prize fund at stake and we’re sure there will be a lot of tense games on the day, good luck to all that are playing!

Congratulations to Joe Harrison and Jamie Maston on winning the Burstwick Sixes!

On Saturday we hosted the inaugural Burstwick Sixes Tournament, which is a 6 hole matchplay tournament played over the course of one day. Sixteen pairs entered into the event which consisted of them being drawn into four groups, and the winner of each group progressing to the afternoon's semi finals.

Pairs in each group played 6 hole matches against each other (18 holes total for three matches), before a lunch break and the winners of each group drawn against another for the semi final. Winners of each group match got 2 points, halves earned 1 point each, and losses 0. The groups that had joint top pairs were decided by their win margin totals (i.e. 4&2 would beat 3&2, etc).

The semi finalists went out in the afternoon with Darren Wilkinson & Neil Turner taking on Lee Brooks & Darren Smith, and Joe Harrison & Jamie Maston versus Dave Smith & Martin Hewitson. In match one Lee & Darren beat Darren & Neil on the first play off hole after halving through 6, and in the other game Joe & Jamie beat Dave & Martin in regulation play.

Onto the the final and Joe & Jamie played fantastic golf on holes 13-18, with Joe holing a number of key clutch putts which ended up with them sealing victory on 18, a great performance against two very good opponents who played some great golf. In the third place playoff, Dave & Martin beat Darren & Neil to pick up a podium place.

As it was the first year we've run the event we took some good feedback and will make some small changed for 2019 to make things run a little smoother, but on the whole the feedback for the event was fantastic and we may expand it to more than 16 pairs next year!

Scores reflect great weather at the Seniors' Xmas Invitation

Today we held our 2017 Seniors' Xmas Invitational, and Mother Nature gave us fantastic conditions for the event, showcasing the course in a great light. This competition is an open pair's event which is divided into four age categories: 60-64, 65-69, 70-74 and 75+. With very little wind and quite mild conditions the winning scores in each category where all very worthy, two of the home pairs that came in with 46 points each thought they would have walked away with the top prizes but they were pipped by some cracking scores from away pairings!

Captains Emerge as Winners in Seniors & Ladies Betterball

Winners Laura Key and Andy Steward

On a sunny Wednesday in May, 16 of our ladies and 16 of our senior golfers took part in a Mixed Betterball Stableford, for an annual trophy. This is the third year the competition has been played and the popularity has increased each year, which is testament to the hard work put in by the Ladies' and Seniors organisers. 

This year the scores were excellent, with six pairs shooting under par scores and the winning team made up of both Captains was a blistering 43 points!

Ladies & Seniors Betterball Results

  1. Andy Steward & Laura Key - 43 pts
  2. Ron Wicks & Karen Batty - 39 pts
  3. David Key & Ann Roberts - 39 pts
  4. Bill Broughton & Sue Grindall - 38 pts
  5. Paul Collins & Pauline Wright - 37 pts

Gray & Hewitson Clinch Seniors & Ladies Trophy on Countback!

On Wednesday 19th May we held our second annual Seniors and Ladies' Trophy, and the winners from last year Rick Sheppeck and Laura Key were split up in the draw so were unable to defend their trophy as a pair with teams being drawn randomly.

In the end it was a back-nine countback that decided the 2015 winners, with Dave Gray and Sara Hewitson topping the table on 39 pts with a back nine of 20, from Senior Captain  Pete Roberts and Lady Captain Chris Wicks who had a back nine of 17.

Well done to all those who entered, here's looking forward to next year!
