Greetings from Nick Ellis
Naunton Downs Golf Club - PGA Golf Professional

Do you want to join us in the Burford Pro Am? 

If you have ever had the opportunity to play in a professionally run Pro-Am tournament I hope you agree that they make for a great golfing day out. You are playing with a team of fellow amateurs and with a PGA Professional in a friendly team format at a great venue and you will enjoy a meal with your team afterwards. If you have played some decent golf you may well be in the hunt for some fantastic prizes! 

I always enjoy playing in these events with a variety of our members and I hope the members also enjoy playing with me! 

Both Peter and I have entered one of these such events at Burford Golf Club on Thursday 27th August. I have my team members arranged (Roger Downes, Bill Bingham and Les Hughes) and we are looking for two more members to play in Peter's team alongside Malcolm Sainsbury

The cost is £70 each and will include the following:- 

o 18 Hole Pro-Am tournament (1 PGA Pro / 3 Amateurs) at a first class parkland golf course, Burford Golf Club
o Superb team prize table. 
o Tea / coffee on arrival and a two course post round team meal. 

If you are interested in joining us on this day please let me know as soon as possible… first come first served and a valid competition handicap is required.

Challengers Report 

Last Sunday a reduced team of eight Challengers led by Men's Captain Neil Rimmer journeyed to Stratford Oaks Golf Club to try and retain the Challengers Cup, which we won at home in Spring this year. 

The Challengers Cup has been played twice a year almost continuously since spring 1996 and is a hotly contested event between the two clubs. 

As we had only 8 players, Stratford Oaks lent us two of theirs, and a field of 5 teams stepped up to the first tee in quite windy but warm conditions. We found the course in great condition with a lot of run on the ball, greens were medium paced, but apparently just 5 days before they had been lighting fast (10.5 on the stimp) as they tested their recent purchase of a greens iron! We played on a more reasonable 8 (ish). 

So as the intrepid golfers made their way around Naunton Downs gradually managed to take control of the day with Les Hughes and Simon Hall taking the biggest win of 6/4. The two Stratford Oaks players siding for us also took no prisoners from their fellow members recording a 3/2 victory for Naunton Downs. 

The final tally was 3 wins and 2 losses to Naunton Downs, thus the cup remains at home, a big well done to the whole team.
