Saturday 18th November 2017

Winter golf is not always a good experience, you must put up with cold, damp and courses not being their best. However, this was not the case at Bridlington’s Belvedere course on Saturday. With the course being set up for the conditions, playing reasonably long and only one temporary green, it was a credit to the staff in being able to present the course so well in spite of the weather we had succumbed to recently.

Once again, this was a six-pair event, entered by the nine-member clubs, with four of  scores counting toward the Pennant. This was the last fixture of 2017 before the winter break.

Filey, currently lying in third place, got off to a great start, with Liam Douglas and Neil Cammish finishing their round with an 8 under par 64. South Cliff duo of Dane Heblich and Ian Hare came close to knocking Douglas and Cammish off top spot, with a credible 7 under par 65, if only they could have produced a better back nine, as their front nine was a six under nett 30.

A bunch of 6 under pars seemed to be the scores, as various club pairings would produce these results, Whitby, Rich Brown and Chris Pennock, along with two pairings from Bridlington Links, F Wilson & A Sweeting and A Ashby & A Drape, separated by Bridlington Belvedere’s Captain Paul Redhead (playing in his first Alliance meeting) and P Sibert, all these scores would be separated by the inward 9 or last six holes.

Nobody would manage to surpass Douglas and Cammish in their earlier score, seeing them secure the tankards, helping Filey to produce the best team score on the day of 20 under 268; this would see Filey consolidate their position in third place, moving them closer to the leaders, South Cliff by 4 shots, who managed to replace current holders of the Pennant North Cliff, to top spot, regaining their earlier season lead by 3 shots.

As the first part of the season has reached a conclusion, we take a break returning in January 2018, playing at Driffield’s Sunderlandwick course on Sunday the 28th. Clubs will be making sure that their players keep up with the golf, over the Christmas and New Year festive period, returning to what will, no doubt, be a close climax to the Pennant season in 2018.
