CALLING ALL OTHER HALFS!
One Rowany member (who shall remain nameless) once told his partner that there was a rule that women could not play at the same club as their partners. This is so not true! If there are any partners out there who fancy having a go at golf I am going to run some introductory sessions at the club on Sunday mornings, starting at 1030 this coming Sunday, 4th November.
Text me on 484422 if you are interested!!
Remembrance Day 9-Hole Mixed Open Stableford
Sunday 11th November was scheduled to be free, but it has now been decided to hold a 9-hole mixed open stableford on that day, with the Club donating the competition entry fees taken to the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.
Until further notice, all Club competitions will be non-qualifying for handicap purposes.

Weekend Competition Report
By Guy Sutton
Saturday saw the annual Masters competition being played, not quite Augusta, but featuring all the winners of the Competitions throughout the competition year. A club competition also took place alongside this to cater for those who didn’t make the podium this season.
First place in the Masters went to Orry Teare, who has had a very successful run, with a number of firsts and high placings this year. Orry shot an 87 gross, net 71 just edging out Peter Holt on a back-nine count back. Best gross went to Ged Power with a 77.
In the club competition the top spot went to Chris Wray on 81 gross, 69 net, the only player in the entire field to break 70 net! Second place went to Andy Coz Corrin on 88 gross, net 71, with Tim Hammerton, the Albert’s finest quizzer, coming in third with 86 gross, 75 net.
Sunday saw the usual nine-hole open Stableford taking place with a good turnout of 34 competitors.
Top dog was Neil Gray with 20 points, just ahead of a raft of players on 19 points. Placings were resolved on countbacks, with Matty Wilshaw coming in second, just ahead of Grieg Galloway.
