Presentation Tournament 2022

You are all invited to the Presentation Tournament on January 22nd.

The Presentation Tournament format is played “against Par” with handicap adjustment, which is a modified stableford competition.
It is like a matchplay against the course. if you score lower than net par, you win the hole and you get a point. if you score net par, you half the hole and get no point. If you score more than net par, you lose the hole and get -1. The winner is the one with the most positive value.

We usually combine this event with a dinner in the evening, where we present all the trophies of the preceding year and their winner. But once again, due to Covid restrictions and all the restaurants being closed, we are not able to do that this year. We will however try to book a dinner during a weekend, as soon as the restaurants open again, hopefully in just a few weeks, so stay tuned for this.

All the trophies will be on display in the vitrine in the hut, with a list of all of last year’s results for everyone to see.

Registration for the competition is open in Proware.

Chairman/Captain Challenge 2021 report and results

On Sunday October the 24th, the Chairman/Captain challenge was played on the ESTEC course. The weather was nothing short of perfect, with low winds, and not single a cloud in the sky.

19 participants (one last minute drop out unfortunately) took advantage of the good weather, and joined this competition. The game format was a Fox hunt, a four balls better ball with the par set by the Chairman / Captain team (the foxes).

Carl and myself tried made our best to set the bar high, and have the foxes escape. The par differential was as follow:

Hole #DifferentialHole #Differential
1010-1
2011-1
3-112-1
4-1130
5+114-1
6015-1
70160
8-1170
90180


Pretty good score, but the foxes were nonetheless caught.

It was a tight race to top, with the pair Raffaele Tosellini and Tony van Rosmalen the winner with 38 points, one point in front of Brian Taylor and Reno Harboe-Sorensen 37 points. In 3rd place came Peter Behrmann and Barteld de Jong with 36 points, just catching the foxes.

Walker Cup / Club Championship results

This past weekend we played the combined Walker Cup and Club Championship.

On Saturday under perfect conditions, sunny and almost no wind, we played the first round of the Club Championship and the Walker cup. We had a total of 36 participant, with 2 having to withdraw due to illness and abiding by the corona precaution.

On Sunday the second round was played in equally ideal conditions, just a little bit more breezy. 17 players were on the course (one player that had to withdraw in the morning due to illness).

Walker Cup results

The category 2 championship was won by Stephen Durrant with the great score of 40 stableford points (off 36, 41 off his full hcp), 6 points ahead of Ton Remmen, and 7 in front of Rob Jansen. In the process Stephen scored a very respectable 83 brut score that got him inside the cut line for the Club Championship second round.

Congratulation Stephen!!! Very well done!!!

Club Championship results

The Club Championship on the other hand was a very tight race.

After the first round on Saturday, Paul McNamara was at the top of the leaderboard with 65, just one shot ahead of Vincent Regis 66, and 2 ahead of Erik van Ginkel and Alex Jeanes both with 67.

On Sunday, in the 2nd round Vincent Regis stormed out of the gates with a first nine 30, one over par , and at that point was well ahead. But a series of mistakes at the beginning of the back nine, and some very solid play from Paul McNamara with 2 birdies, put Paul right back in contention after hole 15. It all came down to hole 18, and a bladed chip shot from Paul, to hand a short victory to Vincent by just one shot. Erik van Ginkel had a solid 2nd round but stayed 3 short of the lead.

So after 3 years of dominance from David Binns, the new Club Champion is Vincent Regis!

Best ladie, or to put it better, last ladie standing is Helma Nollen. Congrats Helma!

A Special thank you goes out to Ton Remmen and his team of green keepers, for setting up the course in a condition, that every player I talked to said was perfect. The fairways were immaculate, the greens were smooth and fast, and the pin positions presented a fair challenge.

Great work Ton !!!!
