Golf Club comps in South, before Coronavirus

There were a number of competitions that took place at various Golf Clubs across the south of the county before the spread of the Coronavirus outbreak.

Staverton Park
One point was the difference between first and second positions in the Blue Group Back Nine Seniors competition at Staverton Park as Paul Farenden (20) edged out Peter McMahon.
Fresh from his victory over the closing stretch in the Red Group seven days earlier, Ian Machell emphasised his capabilities on the Front Nine as he beat Trevor Tracey on countback with 20 points.

Paul Keeler produced an outstanding display of golf in Kingsthorpe’s St. Andrews Cup Stableford as the high-handicapper compiled a magnificent winning tally of 44 points.
Andy Sibley was one of four players to finish three points off the pace as he forced Maurice Lines, Bob Sanderson and Alec Sarjeant into the minor places.

Collingtree Park
Trevor Twelftree proved too strong for the field in the March Stableford at Collingtree Park as the six-handicapper’s tally of 41 points lifted him two clear of Arjun Shah.
