Abridge Club Championships 2019
The Abridge Club Championships for 2019 were played on the last weekend in June. The 78 strong field were split into 3 divisions:
Division One : Handicaps 0 – 6
Division Two : Handicaps 7 – 14
Division Three : Handicaps 15-24
Divisions One and Two started their rounds from the 1st tee. Division 3 started their round from the 10th followed by the ladies.
Nothing could be won on Day 1 but those who scored well would put themselves in pole position for Day 2.
On Sunday morning the field played in reverse order after the Day 1 gross score results. The leaders went out in the last groups of their respect divisions.
Mens Champion: Lee Oliver
Congratulations to Lee Oliver (pictured above) who shot a brilliant 2 under par gross 70 on Saturday and then a very steady 76 on Sunday.
Lee ending up winning by 3 shots to become the 2019 Abridge Champion Golfer.
Ladies Club Champion: Fredricka Sebardt
Congratulations also goes to Fredricka Sebardt who held her nerve on Sunday to become our 2019 Abridge Ladies Champion.
The course was in perfect condition and set up to test the field.
A special thank you to our green staff for getting the course into such excellent condition. We had the traditional diamond fairways and greens that were true and really quick.
We would also like to thank Lol Green for all his hard work to organise the event. Lol strategically placing the pins in equally difficult but different positions on both days .
He also made sure that most holes played to their full length from the white tees. Occasionally he pushed them forward (7th hole) to tempt the big hitters to attack the green from the tee.
A final thank you must go to all of the kitchen/bar staff, marshalls and the countless other volunteers that helped over the weekend.
Awards and Pro Shop voucher prizes
The overall club champion would be the player with lowest gross score over the 2 rounds. This was always going to come from Division One.
Prizes were awarded for places 1st – 4th in each of the 3 divisions for the lowest gross score over the 2 days.
There were also prizes for places 1st – 4th for the lowest net score on Day 2. This meant that those players that had a bad first round could still end up with honours on the Sunday.
