Runner up was Dan Thomas with 38 points with Steve Rodgers and Baz Lawson also scoring 38.
In the evening a complimentary buffet provided by Mr Captain was very well supported along with music from Ali G . A fantastic evening was enjoyed by all.

Sam’s Golf Day
Sunday 14th July 2019
What a fantastic day! The weather held and the course was in unbelievable condition. Once again the level of support for this annual event was unbelievable and the atmosphere in and around the club was electric.
Watching golfers hit off the 10th with the chance to win a £30.000 car certainly generated some noise!
Such was the success of the day that many visitors responded by saying it was the best event of their golfing calendar.
Many thanks to all the volunteers at half way house and to David Wood Domestic Appliances for supplying the fridges plus AVSL for supplying the Audi RS3 which unfortunately no one managed to win!
Winners of the Texas Scramble with a score of 51.6 were Matt Murray, Pete Simister, John Hegg and Rick Atkinson who beat a strong New Mills team of Keane Hyde, Joe Bowers, Jack Marshall and Jack Hulse who came in with 52.1 narrowly beating another local team of Cara Wild (last year’s JuniorCaptain), Martin Wild, Mikey Deaville (this year’s Junior Captain) and Brian with 52.7
Mickey won the prize for nearest the pin on the 4th whilst Matt Murray (8th) and Russ Pearson (15th) along with Anne Brown with the longest drive completed the prize winners.

Well done to everyone who took part in this year’s Bosworth Trophy which was held at Cavendish Golf Club, Buxton.
The course was fantastic and we were well looked after. Winners on the day were Steve Yates and Gary Yates who played very steadily throughout. There was nearly a disaster on the last hole when Gary caught a flyer off the 18th fairway and had to take an unplayable drop after his ball ended up on the sofa in the Steward’s living room!!! Fortunately, no one was hurt and they finished with an amazing 47 points winning £40 each plus having their names in gold on the trophy board and a place in golf club history!
Prizes for nearest the pin went to Neil Stafford on the 4th and the 9th and to Gary Yates on the 15th.
Sunday 7th July 2019
Great weather and a fantastic turn out made this year’s Ladies Open an extremely successful day. Winners on the day were the team from Hazel Grove Golf Club with an excellent score of 95 points. This superb team effort by the Ladies with help from the Senior’s section ensured that once again our open is a major event in the golfing calendar. Many thanks to everyone who helped on the day!
Mr Captain greeted each team on the 1st tee

A few weeks ago Sam and Kallis saw a group of golfers attempting the MacMillan Longest Day Challenge and were motivated to try it themselves partly because of the challenge, which involves playing 72 holes in a single day, but also because it is for such a worthy cause.
So, with just two weeks to prepare, Sam assembled a team consisting of himself, Kallis, his brother Keane and Jacob Bradshaw.
Beginning at 5am on Tuesday 18th June, whilst most of us were tucked up in bed and fast asleep, the four of them met up for coffee and a team talk before teeing off on the first of their 72 holes at 5.30 am! Throughout the day they only took one break and that was between rounds 2 and 3 to grab some well deserved lunch.
The course was in superb condition and for most of the day the weather was fine. However on the last three holes the heavens opened and with no rain gear in their bags it was a battle to the finishing line which they finally reached at 7pm!
As Sam said ‘We took the rain on the chin and thought about everything the charity does and how grateful we are to be in the position we are’
The scores over the 72 holes were Sam -2; Jacob+4; Keane +11 and Kallis +32
Well done to all four players for such a tremendous achievement and a big thank you to everyone who made a donation which currently stands at close to £1000.
Saturday 22nd June
There was a great turn out for our Invitation Day with 26 two ball teams competing in a betterball stableford event. Good weather along with superb course conditions resulted in some impressive scores.
Winners were Martin Wild and Steve Hambleton with 47 points beating Steve Worrall and W. Clarke in a card play off. 3rd place went to Bob Walsh and his guest S. O’Brien who were just one shot behind with 46
Steve Holmes-Kirkham won the prize for nearest the pin on the 8th whilst D. Wilson came nearest the pin in two on the 13th.
Many thanks to everyone who took part and to our visitors who we hope will come back in the not too distant future.
