Autumn Meeting 2017

It was a bright sunny day for our final county competition of the season and 51 players took part in the Autumn Meeting at Chilwell Manor Golf Club on Monday 4th September. The course was in excellent condition with some very testing pin positions which made the greens quite testing. Some excellent scores were recorded, with Caron Harrison from Sherwood Forest winning both Scratch and Nett prizes. Her gross 73 broke the course record at Chilwell, previously held by Alex Peters with 75. Many congratulations to Caron for an excellent score! The CSS for the day was 73.

At this competition, in addition to the results for the Autumn Meeting, aggregate prizes are awarded for the combined gross and nett scores for both Autumn and Summer Meetings.

I would like to record my thanks to Chilwell Manor for looking after us all so well and for presenting the course in such great condition. This was the final competition to be run by our hard working competition secretaries Colette Newton and Jane Fowler before they resign from the NCLGA Executive in November. Very many thanks to them both for all their hard work today and over the years – they have done an exceptional job, dealing efficiently with all the competition entries and results – and always with a smile. We shall miss them hugely!
