Weekly News Update – Week 38

Matt Sandy and Tom Plumb both qualified for the KO stages in the West of England Open Amateur Championship @ Burnham and Berrow but failed to make the last 16.

Congratulations to Sherborne Junior Alex Kley who made his England debut for the Men’s Junior Bowls team.

Both Hardy teams had a successful final round of home matches on Saturday!  Hardy A enjoyed a win against Yeovil (4.5-3.5) and Hardy B had a convincing win over Crane Valley (4-1).  If you are interested in playing in either of the hcp formats, next years league will tee off next March.

Course Information:

Important points to remember:

ALWAYS on arrival check for any course updates which can be found on the external “white board” or if in doubt ask the Pro Shop. Daily course updates can be due to weather or course maintenance.

ALWAYS remember to repair divot and pitch marks!

ALWAYS keep up the pace of play and encourage members in your groups to play READY GOLF. SGC supports the R&A in READY GOLF and therefore the Club will NOT tolerate any SLOW play.
