Seniors Captain's Day - Geoff Tinson presenting the trophy to winner Bernard Peel

 £700 raised for Evergreen Care Trust


Toft's Geoff Tinson hosted his Seniors Captain's Day that attracted 76 golfers and raised more than £700 for the club's charity, the Evergreen Care Trust.

The weather had threatened to put a dampener on proceedings with heavy rain at the start of the day followed by showers, but the day was hugely successful with plenty of prizes to be won. A raffle, halfway house and the use of mulligan's all added to the interest.

 

Presentations were made to all the winners of the day following an enjoyable buffet where Geoff thanked everyone involved in making it a such a memorable day.

 

Despite the adverse playing conditions five golfers scored 41 points or more. Bernard Peel emerged as the winner with 43 points. Second place went to  Clive Gray with 42 points, and Mick Marriott took third place on countback with 41 points from Dave Price and John Tummon. The four nearest the pin prizes were won by Paul Smith, Max Baker, Mick Marriott and Kevin Clayton. The decanter for nearest the pin in two on the 9th hole was won by Keith Rogers. The prize for the straightest drive on the 12th hole went to Richard Shuttlewood and the longest drive on the 17th hole to Roger Smith. Fourteen players shared the two’s competition prize money.

 

The Seniors side have also played two matches on home soil, both resulting in victory's. Having lost at neighbours Rutland County earlier in the season Toft were out for revenge in the home fixture with the match played in Ryder Cup style for the first time.  The match was played in pleasant summer conditions with Toft winning 7 ½ to 1 ½. In the singles matches there were two very close matches with Toft captain Geoff Tinson winning on the last hole against the Rutland County captain John Adkins. In the battle of the lowest handicappers Alan Barnes and Gerry McIntyre halved their match. In the Greensomes matches there were wins for John Tummon and Alan E Smith (6&5) and David Sharp and Mick Marriott (6&5). In the foursomes there were wins for all four pairs with Tony Cushing and Duncan Cameron winning 6&4, John Davenport and David Haycox (1 up), Phil Miller and Roger Osborn (3&2) and Andy Briggs and Peter Henderson (4 &3).  

 

Toft also gained revenge against Melton Mowbray winning 5 ½ to 2 ½ having lost at Melton  by a similar score a month ago. This was the first time the fixture has been played both  home and away in the same year. The winning pairs were  Phil Miller and Duncan Cameron (5&4), Alan Smith and Andy Briggs ( 2 up), John Tummon and Mike Platt (4&3), David Sharp and John Lee (1 up) and Peter Harris and Alan Somerville (5&3). The pairing of  Peter Henderson and Adrian Childs halved their match. The winner of a bottle of wine for nearest the pin on the 13th went to  Melton’s Richard Haines.

 

58 players turned out for a Medal Qualifier off the white tees on Thursday in pleasant breezy conditions. Mick Marriott continued his recent run of good form coming in with the best score of the day with a net 67 with 11 pars and a birdie.   Countback was needed to separate the chasing pack with Ray Bill in second place with 69 followed by John Lewis and Phil Miller. All four players suffered handicap reductions.
