Guest Day

Orsett Golf Club

Tuesday 25th July

This annual event seems to go from strength to strength. This year was no different with a field of over 60 people playing on a nice sunny and absolutely maintained course.

Richard Herring, manager secretary at Orsett Golf Club showcased how lucky the members are, course, food and the organisation were second to none. Please pass on our gratitude to your committee and members for use of all the facilities.

Played in warm sunshine and for the Guest Day trophy 30 pairs started at 13.00. The weather seemed to get warmer as it went on.

Nearest the pin on the 12th for men and ladies was won by Judy Barker and Richard Herring, with Richard hitting his shot to within an inch from the pin.

The longest drive was on the 18th and the ladies longest drive was won by Julie Ruscoe from Colchester, and the longest drive for the men was won again by Richard Herring. Playing on his home course definitely must have helped.

The scores on the day were very high especially of 10% for a betterball competition

In 3rd Place with a great score of 45 points and on countback Matthew Bowman & John Steele from Ely Golf Club.

In 2nd Place was Bob Tawell and Dick Foord from Rushmere Golf Club with 46 points.

In 1st Place Richard Herring and Andy Lee from Orsett Golf Club with a massive 48 points.

A big Thank to John Sayer, Gary Smith and Judy Barker for the fantastic organisation of this Guest Day.

And last but definitely not least a big thank you to our sponsors Philip Vince Majestic Crystal and Club Systems
