Report on County Seniors Championships at Stourbridge G.C. 2015
36th County Seniors Championships at Stourbridge G.C. 22.6.15
Stourbridge Golf Club was in magnificent condition for the 2015 Seniors Championship. The greens were running at championship speed and great care was needed on many of the downhill putts as well as on all approach shots. Overall, the course was looking at its best and the hospitality shown by everyone at the club was first class. It was clear to everyone why the club has a full membership a steadily growing waiting list.
A blustery wind, sunny spells and the odd rain squall characterised the day. With the pins placed in some tricky positions the course presented a tough test for the 42 seniors taking part.
A 75 gross from Bill Thompson ( Kings Norton) led the way for most of the day until Martin Cartwright ( Fulford Heath) produced the score of the day, a superb 71 gross. Bill's early score was then matched by Lawrence Hawker ( Kings Norton) who took the best nett prize.
LtoR : Martin Cartwright, County Seniors Champion 2015 with the Nevill Carroll Salver and Lawrence Hawker, Nett Champion, with the Denis Hayes Salver.
The County wish Martin every success when he goes forward to represent Worcestershire in the Champion of Champions weekend at Woodall Spa on the 19th and 20th September, 2015.
The County Officials, Dave McDermott, Denis Hayes and Jim Gray, ably led by Stuart Pritchard ( County Secretary) did a great job by ensuring the whole event ran extremely smoothly and they were all given a well deserved round of applause by a good crowd of seniors who'd stayed on for the presentation. Thanks were also given to Tony Edwards and John Whitehead, the County Referees.
