Thurlestone Seniors Open 4th September 2015

Once again wonderful weather and calm conditions greeted the large field of competitors for the Seniors Open at Thurlestone. Such is the appeal of the Course and the friendly welcome that players came from as far away as Moor Park West Surrey and the RAC Club to our little gem in the South Hams of Devon.

Vic Dyer, Course Manager, and his team of Green keepers had prepared the course as always in superb condition and many commented "it was the best course they have played all year." Tom, Brent Gaynor and the team welcomed the players back into the Clubhouse with a fine two course seasonal buffet and choice of home-made desserts that went down very well.

There were ball prizes for the two's competition of which there were  8 recorded during the day.

Nearest The Pin prizes were contested on all the Par 3's with the eventual winners being;

3rd hole - John Pulman

5th Hole - Pat Baker

6th hole -  Ray Baldwin

13th hole - Colm Doran

17th hole -  Vic Lee

There was some excellent scoring throughout the field with the calm conditions, striped up fairways and  smooth, running greens. The winners were:

Under 70's

  • 5th place - R. Bennett ( Yelverton GC)
  • 4th place - P. Tinsley ( Lyme Regis GC)
  • 3rd place - M. Hopkins (Churston GC)
  • 2nd place -  S. Morris (Parkstone GC)
  • and 1st place - C. Allen (Yelverton GC)

Over 70's

  • and 1st place - Alastair Proctor ( Thurlestone GC)

The overall winner and the winner of our Claret Jug donated by Eric and Shona Wilson in 2005 is Chris Holmes ( Thurlestone GC ) who takes away a lovely replica jug.
