CAPTAIN'S DRIVE-IN November 26th 2023
Joan Howroyd, one of Belfairs Golf Club’s most popular members, marked a significant moment on Sunday as she assumed the role of Club Captain. The traditional drive-in ceremony, a time-honoured event in the golfing world, was not only a personal milestone for Joan but also a happy occasion celebrated by family, friends, fellow club members, and representatives from neighbouring Kindred golf clubs.
This year's drive-in took on a festive theme, with Club President Hugh Brown initiating the proceedings before Joan took centre stage. Joan's calculated swing landed her ball seventy-two feet from the pin, prompting cheers and applause from the gathered spectators.
As Joan embarks on her tenure as Club Captain, we extend our warmest wishes for an enjoyable and successful year ahead.
KENNEDY CUP: October 6th, 7th & 8th
Ray Beadell fashioned another fine round to continue his current winning streak.
In a field of 34, the in-form veteran took first place on coun-tback, relegating Baz Patel (lowest gross score) to runner-up.
The unlucky Peter Mahoney also had every chance to win but ruined his chances with an 8 on the 17th.
CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP 2023: 23rd - 24th September
Belfairs celebrated a new club champion when Nick Mounsey successfully overcame the challenge of Adam Joyce.
The 36 hole event saw Mounsey take a commanding lead at half-way, but defending champion Joyce would not give up his title without a fight and fought back to reduce the deficit to just 2 hole before Mounsey reestablished an unassailable lead to win 6 &5 and become Champion Golfer 2023
Congratulations to Nick on a well-earned victory and well done to the players for producing a final that displayed both determination and sportsmanship.
FINALS DAY 2023: Sunday 24th September
In addition to the Club Championship, two other finals were contested.
A closely fought contest between Andy Nash and Ray Jones resulted in the latter finally claiming the match on the 19th hole. (One for the record books could be the 25 minutes taken to play the 18th!).
Harry Smith produced a stunning putting display in the final. Partnered by Chris Shawyer, the veterans defeated Terry Copping and Jon Stannard 4&3..
