This Saturday is the Neville Peterson trophy Sponsored by Shoprite.
Last Saturday was the end of month prize giving and Permanent Bank International Stableford. A smaller field than recent weeks, the Ryder cup being too good to miss for many.
Best senior was the shy George Ferguson(20). Ferguson's 35 points squeezed Roy Clague(19) out of the prizes. Ferguson's 21 points on the back nine easily took the prize as Clague had managed 21 points on his front nine but only 14 on his way back.
Category 3/4 was taken by Fergal McKenna(21). McKenna had 36 points, an inward 9 of 21 points good enough to take the prize from Stephen Charmer(20). McKenna had one 4 pt and five 3 pts.
Mel Todd(8) had 37pts on his way to the Category 1/2 prize. Todd lost out on the back 9 for the main prizes. Though 2's on 8 &16 will boost his share of the winnings.
Bob Taylor(12) led a pack of four players on 37pts. An inward nine of 20pts, with a par for 3 pts on 18 securing third place.
Mark Skelding(10) finished second with 38pts. A steady round until the last 2 holes, a 6,6 finish along with some poor putting cost Skelding first place.
A gross 74 for 41pts gave Charlie Ross(7) the victory. 12 pars and 2 birdies gave Ross a three shot win.
The SMP medals and Permanent bank crystal glasses will be presented in October.
Dear Members of Castletown Golf Club Limited
It is an exciting time at Castletown. We now operate a mixed club under a Company banner and this year we will host the Isle of Man Men’s Golf Championship and the Willie Kirkpatrick 2 round competition, the latter event being sponsored by Miss Irene Pugh and Manx Petroleums. Let us hope we will see Castletown members winning these prestigious events, as well as retaining the IOM Scratch league.
We have settled in to our magnificent new clubhouse, where we are now able to host all our social events and tremendous work continues to be carried out by our hard working green keepers to improve our course. Few can argue that it is the finest on the Island. We are all very grateful to Philip Vermuelen and his family for their continued drive and enthusiasm to make our course achieve a higher ranking in Britain
I thank Past President Jack Yardley and Past Captain Barry Watts for all their hard work and endeavours on behalf of the club during their terms of office.
I look forward to working closely with our new President Dave Bell, our Lady Captain Louna Vermuelen, my excellent Men’s committee and Louna’s Ladies Committee to give us all great golf, good company, and a lot of happy memories of 2014 down here at Castletown
Chairman of Directors
