Our inaugural club championship
The inaugural Parley Golf Centre club championship held on the new course saw dozens take on the 36-hole challenge.
Stuart Freeman was the overall ‘scratch’ winner and became the first club champion; he was also runner-up in the handicap event.
Shelley Davis was the ‘handicap’ winner and runner-up in the scratch competition.
Neil Holdaway came third in the scratch competition and Daniel Murphy was third in the handicap event.
Club captain Tony Pomeroy presented the prizes to the winners in what it is anticipated will become an annual event.
It is the first summer with the new course and practice facilities open and the greenkeepers are delighted with how well it has bedded down.
Daryl Dampney, manager of the centre, said: “Having invested so much is expanding the centre and building a new course we decided to hold a club championship.
“With a growing membership there were plenty of people taking part and we had great weather, too.
“The competition was highly competitive and played in a wonderful spirit. Afterwards we had a good get-together in the café-bar.
“Obviously congratulations to our new club champion Stuart Freeman.
“Anyone can come and play on the new course – just pitch up and play.”
