Rogers rockets to eclectic Number One spot.
There were some excellent scores at Derllys Court last week when the seniors played the 3rd round of their winter eclectic.
In a tight contest for the top spots, despite failing to score on the 9th hole, Graham Bebb took first place with a great round that included two birdies to record 42 pts and see off the challenge of Phil Rogers by just a single point. Huw Hafod Jones and Roy Gallop tied on 40 pts for third place with Jones getting the nod on countback.
Whilst Bebb, Jones and Gallop took the first three places in division one, there were also good scores from Meirion Evans and Paul Gibbs (both 38pts) with Jeff Thomas, Phil Pickersgill and Les Burgoyne all carding 36pts. Gallop and Evans took prizes for best 9 hole scores on the front and back nine respectively, both with 21 pts.
In division two, Rogers was a clear five points ahead of second placed Alan Hire (36pts) who saw off Brian Newcombe on countback, with Dave Wood and Richard Clark scoring the best nine holes on the front and back nines with 20 pts each.

At the halfway stage of the competition, Rogers sits comfortably at the top of the table with an eclectic net score of 64, and his challengers will have a tough task removing the 24 handicapper from this position with lower handicappers Meirion Evans and John Richards one stroke back, followed by Huw Hafod Jones in close pursuit.

[Eclectic top places: Rogers (64), Evans & Richards (65), Jones (65.5), Ninian Davies (66), Peter Jones (66.5), Hugh Thomas, John Hartley & Phillip Jones (67.5)]

Peter Jones moves to top of eclectic table.
The second round of the seniors’ winter eclectic at Derllys Court last week saw an outstanding round of golf from new competition leader Peter Jones.
In challenging winter conditions Jones’s 42 stableford points was a comfortable three strokes ahead of his fellow competitors despite failing to score at the difficult ninth hole. With eight pars and a birdie at the 4th, the seventeen handicapper not only won the second round convincingly but also moved up to first place in the overall eclectic table.
Previous leader John Hartley remains firmly in contention after another good round of 39 points, rewarding him with second place in last week’s event with Tony Wood (38 pts), Phil Mountjoy (37), Geraint Roberts and Hugh Thomas (both 36) also playing well. Wood’s 21 pts on the front nine holes and Roberts’ 19 pts on the back nine took prizes for the best 9 hole scores from Division One.
In the higher handicap Division Two, Tom Thomas produced his second good round of the competition, with 38 points to take top spot from Davies by just one point with Phil Rogers just one point behind and Alan Hire on 36 pts. Hire’s 22 pts and Rogers’ 19 pts were the best 9 hole scores in this division.

In the eclectic table, Hartley now shares second place behind Jones, alongside Ninian Davies and Meirion Evans. Thomas occupies joint third place alongside Phillip Jones, both joined by Rogers who makes the biggest move up the table after improving by fifteen places.

Hartley takes early lead in the Eclectic.
The seniors at Derllys Court began their winter season last week in ideal conditions with Round 1 of the eclectic. A good turn-out saw some very competitive golf with everyone eager to make a good start in the six-round competition.
Last year’s winner Huw Hafod Jones made a solid start once again with 37 stableford points, and was joined on the same score by John Richards, Roy Gallop and Ninian Davies. However, this score was bettered by five other players, all of whom seem to save their best performances for the eclectic.
First place in Division One, on countback, was secured by Chris Palmer who took the honour from John Hartley  thanks to a back nine of 20 points amongst his total of 38 points. In the same division Meirion Evans was unlucky to miss out on a prize with the same score.
In the higher handicap division, Winston John and Tom Thomas both carded the same score with John taking first place on countback.
Graham Bebb (23 pts) and Michael Thomas (21) recorded the best front nine scores with new member John Richards recording the best back nine score of 22 points along with Ninian Davies (also 22).
In the eclectic table, the lower handicappers lead after just one round, with Hartley in top spot, Richards second, thanks largely to two birdie “2s”, and Phil Pickersgill tied on the same total. Round 2 takes place next week.

10th October 2017 – report seniors’ AwayDay at Tenby
Challenging conditions welcomed the seniors from Derllys Court when they travelled to Tenby for an awayday last week with a strong south-westerly wind blowing across the course.
Most of the visitors found the course and conditions just too difficult, but there were no such troubles for the top two players, Mike Benbow and Jeff Thomas. Making the most of his 23 handicap, despite two no-score holes, Benbow amassed 20 points on the front nine, thanks largely to two 4-point holes, a birdie at the par three 6th hole and a par at the 8th. Added to a solid 16 points on the back nine, Benbow’s score of 36 points pipped Thomas to first place by just one point.
Other highlights saw Phil Rogers eagle the par five 15th, for five stableford points, and further 2’s from Chris Palmer, Graham Owens and Frank Wride. Benbow and Wride secured the nearest the pin prizes, with Palmer, Brian Newcombe, John Rees and Elwyn Roderick taking the team award for the top score with the best two stableford points on each hole.
On a lighter note, during an enjoyable day, the total number of lost balls exceeded the century mark. Howard Thomas’s record of seven “blobs” on the first nine -holes was bettered over 18 holes by Martin Davies, who was never-the-less delighted to receive the Blobby Cup award for his scorecard showing eleven no-score holes!
