HP Kelly Cup
Please note that the sponsor has decided to change the format for the HP Kelly Cup from an individual stableford to a team stableford. The format now is teams of four with two scores per hole to count. Prizes: Winning Team; Runners-up; Nearest the Pins on the par 3s.
Initially coaching will be available at the Club on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. I also have an indoor golf studio at home, so if you want a session that is not weather dependant it’s available.
My website, where you will be able to book lessons etc, is currently under construction and will be up and running very soon. You can also get golfing advice on my Facebook page, Tee It Up.

Nearest the pins were won by Chris Oates on the 2nd, Fred Gray on the 8th, Tim Glover on the 13th and Nick Grounds on the 16th.
On Sunday Round 5 of the Tower Insurance sponsored stableford series took place with 31 players going out. Coming out on top once again and earning a severe handicap cut was Dan Hattersley with a remarkable score of 45 points. His handicap has gone from 16 at the start of the weekend to 10 in just 2 days!
