THE busy golf programme continued at Wenvoe Castle and last Saturday saw a high entry in the men’s medal competition for the Dai David Putter named after a former club professional.

The very changeable and unpredictable weather produced a mix of sunshine and sometimes heavy showers which provided an extra challenge on a delightful golf course.

Meirion Evans had been knocking on the door in previous competitions and finally found the right key to unlock a sparkling performance recording a net 69 in a round that included two birdies and eight pars. Wayne Curtis just missed out by one stroke with an excellent net 70 with Steve Bartlett only a stroke further back with a net 71.

On the same day the Ladies also competed in a medal competition for the prize of the GUW Welsh Dragon Brooch. Jill Rodgers produced an exceptional round of golf to score a net 71 and a comfortable win by 6 strokes.

The ever-consistent Jane Lott came second with a net 77 and Debbie Williams played well to finish in third place with a net 78.

There are still some tee times available for the Captain’s Charity Open Day on Saturday 7th September with an opportunity to play this superb golf course in a team of 4 players while raising funds for the nominated charity Parkinson’s UK. Booking can be made directly on the club website or call the club secretary Nicola Manning who would be delighted to take the booking.
