|PILTDOWN GOLF CLUB. Press Report 18.3.19
Piltdown's recent programme has been somewhat disrupted by the weather, but it seems to be getting back to normal, although the ladies are still being disappointed more than they deserve. The men had a stableford on Sunday which was reduced to 15 holes and therefore non-qualifying. Simon Wooderson won with 36 points, a pretty good score over 15 holes, one ahead of Louis Ramsay.
Normal service was resumed on Monday, when a yellow/blue stableford was won by Alistair Parker with a distinctively abnormal score of 45 points. Two shots off his handicap as well. Congratulations Alistair! Runner-up was Bob Gosling with 42, ahead of Peter Barrett (41) and Simon Dougall (40), all three enjoying a handicap cut of one.
PILTDOWN GOLF CLUB. Press report 10.3.19
Rotten weather - plenty of rain, and a wind "like a whetted knife" that may have appealed to John Masefield but tends to keep golfers indoors played havoc with Piltdown's programme this week. Only four ladies completed their Thursday stableford, and the weekend mixed competition was scrapped altogether. A good number of brave warriors turned up for the yellow/blue tee stableford on Monday however, and many were rewarded with good scores: David Willis won with 42 points, one more than Ron Levett. Alistair Parker and James Warwick both scored 40.
