Whelks Annual Presentation Dinner 2017

On Saturday 16th December 2017 20 Members and Guests attended the 2017 Presentation Dinner of the WHELKS Golf Society held at the Churchill and Blakedown Golf Club and excellently organised by our Captain, George Barrow and his lovely lady Iris.

What a superb evening it turned out to be. A Fabulous 3 Course meal demonstrating all that is good about home style cooking to the highest standard, and we express our very grateful thanks to the Steward and his wife for their impeccable service.

The evening is of course designed in order that we can congratulate the Winners of our various competitions during the year and what an excellent array of Trophies we have.

This year our Double Competition Winners were:

  • In March & May ~ The Claret Cup & Savage Cup ~ Bill Barber
  • June & July ~ The “Tansy” Putter and Whelks Bowl ~ Rick Abbotts

We also had a a Member who only won 4 rather than 5 of our Trophies this year, our Star Scratch Golfer. Chris Firminger, who was unable to be present. Chris won the Tourist Trophy in July, the Davies Obelisk in August, the “Sticks” Classic in September and the overall Annual Best Player Eclectic Shield.

Other successes were The April Cup ~ Derek Richards, the Sweeting Trophy ~ Keith Evans and the Hub Trophy ~ Roger Fennell.

It was a truly wonderful climax to an excellent year and we look forward to our Captain, George Barrow, “Driving In” to start our 2018 Season at Ombersley on Tuesday 13th March where we hope to welcome all our Members and their Guests.
