North Wilts host third Bath Rugby Golf Society day

20 June 2012

The third competition of the Bath Rugby Golf Society calendar took place on Monday 18th June at North Wilts Golf Club.

The first three Bath Rugby Golf Society competitions have operated on a 4 Ball better ball format whereby golfers play in pairs to achieve the highest possible score using the Stableford scoring system. Each Golf Society day consistently produces impressive scores and different winners, making event a fun but challenging prospect.

Despite the recent inclement weather, the sun shone on the righteous and the Golf Society members and their guests were happily drenched by sun rather than the rain that was anticipated in the build up to the day. Sunshine inspires good Golf and the golfers did not disappoint.

The top pairings and their prizes from the North Wilts competition are;

1st Pair - Jeanie Willis and Martin Willis - 43pts

They won an exclusive selection of wines from Great Western Wines and a Panasonic LS6 Lumix camera each.

2nd Pair - Lord Ian Maclaurin and Jon Coates - 42pts

They won an exclusive selection of wines from Great Western Wines and a Cobra golf umbrella each.

3rd Pair - Harvey Burgess and Paul Green - 42pts

They won an exclusive selection of wines from Great Western Wines each.


The Bath Rugby Golf Society's big hitters and most accurate golfer on the day were;

Longest Drive (Ladies) - Ruth Morris

Longest Drive (Men) - Jerry Green

Nearest the Pin – Liz Bloor

All win a Magnum of Champagne from Great Western Wines

The Bath Rugby Golf Society also invite golfers to enter the "2 Club" on the day of a competition where if a golfer scores a two on their round they will receive a share of Golf Balls with others who achieve a two. With only two golfers achieving this at North Wilts Golf Club, the prize pot of six dozen balls was shared between Jon Coates and David Chassemore.
