There are a few spaces left for The Audio Room Pro-Am!

Our flagship event of the year, the annual Pro-Am sponsored by The Audio Room in Hull, is due to take place on Friday 24th May and is filling up nicely with teams from around the region.

Professionals will be competing for a fantastic £1,000 first prize, one of the highest in the region, but it’s not just about rewarding the professionals. Amateur teams will be competing for a prize table worth over £2,500, with the first team prize being worth over £800! Not bad for a day out on the golf course, eh?

There are still a handful of spaces left for the event so if you would like to be part of one of Burstwick’s biggest events drop us an email now .

Teams consist of three amateurs and a professional (who we can allocate for you, if required) and the day includes refreshments at various parts of the course including a fully stocked halfway house, and a two course meal afterwards.

John Ward wins the Masters Par 3 Competition!

Last night we had close to 50 people enter our Masters Wednesday Par 3 9 Hole event at the club and it was a great evening for it!

With a total of 1,078 yards for the nine holes most players won’t have needed much more than a mid iron in the bag, but thanks to a cool breeze many of the holes were playing much different to their written yardage.

The format was a strokeplay with 25% handicap allowance, and the scores were very tight at the top, with just two shots separating the seven best cards.

Prizes went to the top five players and it was John Ward who climbed to the summit of the pile with a great score of 25 (-2) net.

Matt Daley’s Am-Am filling up already

This April we will be hosting the first annual fundraising Am-Am for our new professional Matt Daley. It is the first event of it’s kind to be held at Burstwick, and it follows on from when Matt held the same event when he was at Hainsworth Park Golf Club.

The Am-Am is open to all players at any club as long as they have a valid handicap and entry costs just £20 per person, including a bacon roll and coffee!

Matt’s Am-Ams previously were extremely successful and it looks like this one will be just as popular as we already have over 20 teams booked for the day.

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!


Four players emerge victorious at Matchplay Finals

Congratulations to Lee Webster, Mike Oliver and Steve Alger on winning their Matchplay Finals on Saturday 22nd September!

Lee beat George Grassby 10&9 in the 36-hole Scratch Final, Mike beat Alex Foster 5&4 in the Men’s Matchplay and Steve also beat Graham Wilkinson 5&4 in the Seniors’ Final. All very strong victories from each player!

Laura Key also won the Ladies Matchplay two weeks previous, having played Catherine Greenwood early due to Laura being seven months’ pregnant, and the Greensomes final had to be postponed due to Lee Webster also playing in that fixture and it clashing with the Scratch Final.

Congratulations to all the winners and commiserations to the losing finalists, and thank you to all that entered the events! We will see you all competing again in 2019!

Team USA retain the Burstwick Cup for second year in a row!

Last weekend we hosted our coveted Burstwick Cup which is a Ryder Cup style event where members of Burstwick are split into Team Europe and Team USA for a 16v16 brawl!

Captains Bruce Carter (Europe) and Tony Howard (USA) both had great teams on paper, and it was obvious the weekend could go either way.

With fourball betterball matches played on the Saturday the scores came in at 5-3 to the Americans, but with double points available on the Sunday in the singles matches it was obvious that slender lead could quite easily fade away very quickly. And it did.

The first three matches on Sunday went to the Europeans, and suddenly with 13 points to play for the Americans started to wobble.

Myself and opponent Chris Young (who beat me 3&2 in the second match of the day) took it upon ourselves to grab a golf buggy and promote ourselves to theoretical vice captains, as we went around the course to see how the other matches were playing, and give our teams some encouragement.

The more Chris and I ventured around the course it was evident that this cup was going to be nip and tuck. Both the Europeans and Americans had a fair share of matches going their way, and with a lot of strong characters out on the course it was tough to call who might falter and who would strive to victory in each game.

In the end, the final few matches edged it towards Team USA and the race to 12.5 points was won with a couple of matches still left to come in. Congratulations to the red team on their brilliant victory, and thank you to all that played the weekend. I’m sure we will see many of you again in the Burstwick Cup next year!

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!

Weather didn’t dampen most successful Pro-Am to date

On Friday 25th May we hosted our most high profile event of the year, the annual Pro-Am sponsored by The Audio Room. This event is run by the Yorkshire PGA, and attracts PGA Professionals from all over Yorkshire and further afield.

The day started with pouring rain and a forecast that was changing every half hour, but players remained positive and went out in the bad conditions to battle for the coveted prize pot worth over £6,000.

The first tee was at 10am and the rain stopped around 12pm, so the first 12 teams or so had to handle the rain in some shape or form, but the remaining 19 teams were lucky enough to stay dry throughout the afternoon.

In the end the top four teams and professional scores came from afternoon tee slots with the two winning professionals Matt Daley and Rob Calderbank shooting 67 in the afternoon. Home professional James Bisby put in a great score of 68 to finish tied third, which made many of the Burstwick members very happy.

The winning team consisted of James Bisby (pro), myself, Mark Webb and James Thompson, and with a score of -19 pipped another team of Burstwick members by one shot. I was personally delighted with the win, firstly because the first prize was fantastic but also because we (the same four players) placed very poorly in 2017, so we righted a few wrongs out there!

Thank you to all of the 124 players who attended, and also the volunteers who helped before and on the day:

Sarah Leonard & Kate Miskin (halfway house), Alex Foster, Darren Marks, Steve Alger, Craig Dodson, Mark Webb, and many more. We couldn’t have done it without you all!
