Competitions Posted on 09 Nov, 2020 20:09:31

What a nice November day to play golf, sunny no wind and temperature around 14 Deg. C. The Alternative Colin Rolls Trophy, played as a pair event with 9 holes Scramble and 9 holes Better Ball was attended by 34 players representing 4 teams. The best pair score was recorded by Piet and Joe with 46 St.P. followed by Klaus and Peter with 42 St.P. The best team score counting the two best score per team, was won by the “Babes and the Boys” with 87 St.P. followed by “Friday’s Men” with 82 St.P., “Mulligans” with 77 St.P. and “Andy Caps” with 75 St.P. All pair and team results can be found attached.

After seeing the ACRT score cards with around 30% far from the clear example given, I dropped the idea of organizing ACRT part 2, playing Greensome and Foursome.

Chairman’s Challenge – 2020

Competitions Posted on 26 Oct, 2020 10:33:38

The annual Chairman challenge took place Sunday October 25th. The competition was a Fox-hunt (4 ball-better-ball) where the Chairman & Captain (Kjeld & Vincent) from their round set the Par of the course and everybody in teams of two tries to beat that score.

We were 28 participants translated into 7 flights. The weather was at times a bit wet and the course also very wet following a lot of rain the last weeks.  Nevertheless, the spirit was high and despite the current COVID-19 restrictions we still managed to have an enjoyable event. Unfortunately, the restrictions required that the challenge was played as a normal tee-time competition and where the participants were not allowed to remain at ESTEC for a social gathering after the event.  Health is and remains the top priority and it is still a privilege that we even under the current restrictions can enjoy a good round of golf.

The Foxes did their very best and managed to lower the par of the course by 5, but even under those restrictions two teams still managed to make 36 stableford.

Anna C & Gijs – with 36 points and a better back 9 became the winner of today’s event – congratulation -, closely followed by Ineke and Anna Grethe also with 36 points as second, and Gerry and Paul with 34 points on the third place.

It is worth noticing that Gijs Tan became 3rd in 2018, was winner in 2019 and now again in 2020.
It seems that a winning strategy is to team up with Gijs ……  well done Gijs.  

Kjeld & Vincent
