Congratulations to all the Dabchicks who attended at the weekend for our first ‘Major’ of 2019 – the Spring Shield.
Frilford Heath ‘Blue’ Course provided a very competitive challenge and the warm weather provided perfect conditions for playing golf.
Our Spring Shield Champion has bounced back from a barren year in 2018, with a winning score of 37 points Clive Snashall playing off a handicap of 9. Qualifying for the Finals Day and also scoring 36 points was Carl McCulloch (13), both members had strong finishes to their rounds but Clifford with an Eagle on the Par 5 15th earning him 5 points – well played Clive. In 3rd position with a score of 35 points was Darrell Proctor (10) – 1st reserve from this event for Finals Day.

It was a great day last year and I hope we can bounce back with some healthy numbers.
A special mention to our new members this year, Sue and Simon Barrett – thank you and I hope you enjoyed the day and it was great to get to know both of you better, also worth mentioning that both the ladies Jenny Swift and Sue finished 5th and 6th on the leaderboard, could we have our first 1st & 2nd place finish from the ladies this year?
The other winners on the day were: –
Nearest the Pin in 2 5th hole – Matt Reynolds / Nearest the Pin 13th hole – Darrell Proctor / Longest Drive 17th hole was Jenny Swift – congratulations to all 3 of you.
In the meantime thank you again and I look forward to welcoming you for the next event and hopefully see some of the members make their 1st ‘Major’ appearance along with new members.
