North Cliff Golf Club

Saturday 17 November 2018

North Cliff, keen to take home advantage in the last meeting of 2018, did not disappoint. Early pairings of Fraser Kelley and Steve Bennett, along with Dave Raybold and Peter Kirby, produced equal 7 under par 65’s, which would see the host club challenge for the best scores of the day, with Kelley and Bennett having the better back nine. Whitby duo of J Jewell and R Marshall would also produce a 7 under par 65; this would move the North Cliff pair back further as their back nine was equal however a better back six was required to sort the placings.

Malton, current leaders in the pennant, showed they meant business this year once again, Stuart Dawes and Ian Johnson producing an 8 under 64, would be beaten by their other pair of Ian Charlton and Brian Dacey, also with a 64, but a better back nine.

The lead looked never to be overtaken, as eight under was the best score of the day, especially as the weather was worsening. As time went on, the cold seemed to be more evident, as the players were coming in and stating how the weather was getting colder from when they first set off. The pair of N Timmins and T Whitton for North Cliff were on fire, producing an unbelievable 11 under par 61, to take the tankards and assist in North Cliff’s superb team score of 32 under par 256. This was just one shot away from a team score record for the Alliance. This would also assist North Cliff in moving up the leader board in the Pennant standings. However, consistent scoring by Whitby, South Cliff and Malton, would see the top three places remain. Especially Malton who would retain the lead in the Pennant going into the new year.

Malton now need to look forward to the New Year with the anticipation of maintaining their strong start to the Pennant, especially as they will also have home advantage to come, that is, of course, if we can hopefully fulfil the fixtures in the new year, as this year we lost all our fixtures due to the extreme weather; fingers crossed that we don’t experience the same in 2019.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish all the association members seasonal greetings and all the best for 2019.
