Bath Members Compete in National GC C Level series

August 8th 2021

The club held a round of the national GC C Level (handicap 7 and above) Series at the Rec on Thursday 5 August. Despite the fairly continuous rain the tournament was completed without any long delays. The 16 competitors, from as far afield as Northampton, Brighton, Evesham and Henley, were split into 4 blocks for the morning play. The first two in each block advanced to the main Tournament knockout with the remainder competing for the Plate competition. At the end of the morning session Sally Helvey, Pam Burgoyne and Anwen Owens had two wins each to play in the main knockout. Miriam Bolger, Lyndon Hughes and David Veal went into the Plate.
The final of the Tournament featured two players from Beckford with Andy Brister beating Richard Pinder 7-4, to reverse the result of their morning block match. Sally came out top of the Bath players in 5th position, with Pam 6th and Anwen, in her first tournament since joining earlier this year, in 7th. The Plate final was won by Martyn Palmer of Northampton, beating Terry Allen (Taunton Deane) 7-3.
