The White Ensign Lodge Golf Society, (The WHELKS), continues to enjoy this season’s golf matches.
Having played our Annual Stroke-Play Competition at The Vale GC, near Evesham, with Barry Cotton winning “The Tansy Putter”. We then played our June game at a new course, Evesham GC; a challenging 9 Hole Course with two sets of Tees; with Neil Nicholls running out as the winner. This then took us to Monday 14th June when 11 members of the Society travelled to The Manor & Ashbury Hotels, Okehampton which claims to be the 9th largest Golf Resort in the world.
During our 5 days stay, we played 5 Rounds on 5 of their 7 Courses. The weather was superb throughout and the whole party thoroughly enjoyed the Tour, the challenges provided by the various courses and the camaraderie such Tours bring.
Derek Richards (pictured on the left) ran out as the eventual winner, and whilst the Tour Manager provided small token prizes to the daily winner, he will receive the Tourist Trophy at our Annual Presentations Dinner in December.
Our next game will be at Bromsgrove Golf Club on Tuesday 20th July.
