Bedrijf League 2023

Dear EGC Members,

Every year from May through July we play the Bedrijfsleague. A serious competition, but always played in a very friendly atmosphere, where we face teams from other companies. Each match is played in the late afternoon/early evening on a weekday, starting usually around 17:30. There are 4 home matches at ESTEC and 4 away matches played on outside courses. 6 ESTEC players will face 6 players from the opposing team in a 1v1 Matchplay game with full handicap adjustment.

The schedule for the 8 ESTEC matches is currently as follows:

09/05/2023 – Misfits (formerly Shell) vs ESTEC, 17:30 @ Bentwoud
17/05/2023 – ESTEC vs EPO, 17:30 @ ESTEC
23/05/2023 – EPO vs ESTEC, 18:08 @ Rijswijkse Golfclub
31/05/2023 – ESTEC vs PIT, 17:30 @ ESTEC
08/06/2023 – PIT vs ESTEC, 17:20 @ Leeuwenbergh
21/06/2023 – ESTEC vs BP, 17:30 @ ESTEC
28/06/2023 – BP vs ESTEC, 17:25 @ Kleiburg
12/07/2023 – ESTEC vs Misfits (formerly Shell), 17:30 @ ESTEC

This competition is open to all EGC members with a handicap of 36 and lower. If you have a higher handicap but still would be interested to play please contact me so we can see what is possible. Green fees and any post-match drinks + snacks are at the expense of the individual player.

A Doodle poll has been set up for players to register interest in participating in the team and providing their tentative availability for matches. We will use this for the selection of the teams each week. Ideally there are more than 6 players registered on each date to have some reserves. Anyone that registers their name in the doodle will be included in the team and we will try our best to give everyone that registers a chance to play a match:

The first match is already in 3 weeks so please register as soon as possible! Last year we did not manage to win the competition for the first time in years so we are very keen to regain “our” trophy.

Best regards,
Erik & Vincent

Walker and Club Championship report

On Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th of September, the Walker Cup and the Club Championship were played under the best conditions we could hope for. The course was still soft from the rain that fell the days preceding the event, but the weather was nice and warm, with very little wind. Prefect scoring conditions. The scores were indeed good.

Walker Cup

We had 25 participants for the combine 1st round of the Club Championship and Walker Cup, 14 cat 1 players and 11 cat 2.

The winner of the Walker Cup, by 4 points, was Tony Rosmalen with the incredible score of 44 points (75 strokes, the 5th best strokeplay score of the day). In 2nd place went to Rod Allen with 40 points, just one point ahead of Piet Hillebrand, 3rd with 39 points.

Congrats to Tony !

Club Championship

On the Club Championship side. After the first round things were pretty tight at the top of the leaderboard, with Vincent Regis leading by one with a solid 65 strokes, over Erik van Ginkel with 66 strokes. In 3rd, David Binns was still in contention with 70 strokes, 5 behind.

And the second round, Vincent broke away with a great 61, 3 over par round, increasing his lead over Erik to 5 that had a solid 65, and to 10 strokes over David Binns with a good 66.

But on the 3rd round both Vincent and Erik had run out of steam and came back with some pretty disappointing scores, 72 and 76 respectively. David on the contrary was charging back with an excellent 64, overtaking Erik for 2nd. But the lead built by Vincent was too big and David fell short 2 strokes. So thanks to his great 2nd round, Vincent Regis has successfully defended his Club Champion title !

Bedrijf League: Standings after 5 games played

Note that ESTEC had to concede a game to BP due to too many people dropping out at the last minute.

We still have 3 games to play: 2 home games on August 23rd August 30th (against EPO and BP), and another yet to schedule away game against EPO in RGC.

We still have a very tiny chance of winning the league this year, but that would require a clean sweep, 3 6-0 wins. Not very likely, but we have to try!

Summer Seasonal 2022 at De Haenen – Results and Report

The Summer seasonal has been played at De Haenen golf course near Breda. The weather was nice, sunny and little windy. The course was beautiful with undulated contours, and many statues and artwork displayed around the course.

Unfortunately, what could have a perfect setup was a little spoiled as some extensive aeration had been performed on the all the greens, making them really difficult. For this reason the event was declared non qualifying.

A dinner took place at the club house after the round.

The winner with 31 points is Jan van Haarlem. 2nd with 30 points and a better back 9, is Stephen Durrant. 3rd with 30 points is Alex Jeanes. Elly Davis won the longest drive and Allan Thirkettle the neary.

Congratualtions to Jan!
