An experiment to get more trophy winners to turn up for the club’s annual presentations proved a success at Newton Green Golf Club.

A Sunday morning nine-hole friendly encounter, involving men’s and mixed competition winners during the year, meant an increased turn-out, compared with holding the presentation as part of a winter evening annual meeting.

Retiring men’s captain, Lee Prentice, and ladies’ captain, Sally Cade, handed over the awards after a rain-soaked morning’s play, which was followed by a well-attended hot trolley lunch.

Meanwhile, Newton Green GC’s recent Senior Section results are as follows:

Seniors 18-hole Roll-Up (February 28):

1 Terry Scurr 37 points; 2 Alan Monk 34pts on countback; 3 Cos Loizou 34 ocb; 4 Simon Ash 34 ocb; 5 Jim Devereux 34.

Front nine: Kevin Butler 19pts ocb

Back nine: Nick Thomson 19pts ocb.

Inter-Club match (March 2):

Newton Green Seniors v Haverhill Seniors (at Newton Green). Newton Green won 4-3.

Meanwhile, over at Thetford Golf Club, scratch player Iain Yule teamed up with five-handicap Rob Taylor to win the Club’s Winter League trophy.

The foursomes competition involved six rounds, with the four best scores counting, and Yule & Taylor compiled an excellent 144 points, at an average of 36 per round.

Second place went to Steve Burridge and Michael Smith with 137, followed by three pairings on 135 – Norrie Dickson and Brian Youngs, James Camelleri and Dean Scott, and Paul Hensby & Nick Murgolo.

Dickson and Youngs took third place on countback thanks to winning the final round of the competition on Sunday.
