Society Shield, Cumberwell Park – Results July 2018

By Keith DArcy Ryan

Well what’s becoming a theme of this Dabchick Golf Society season for 2018, beautiful weather, a hard but very fair course and some great golf were on offer at the recent Dabchicks Society Shield competition last Friday.

Cumberwell Park Golf Course was in superb condition, given the sustained very warm sunny weather we’ve been having the course and more importantly the greens played very well. Thank you to the 10 golfers who attended and congratulations to all on making it around given the very hot weather! Graham Cook I think you’ve set a record for drinking a jug of water at the end!

Competition for the title of Society Shield Champion 2018 was close with 6 of the 10 competitors scoring in the 30’s. However only 1 managed to break par over the 18 holes, continuing the Dabchick 2018 theme we had a debut winner, congratulations James Collister who took the title with a very tidy 37 points, playing off 17.

Dabchick Society Shield Results and Players Scores

Second place was very closely contested with both Dave “V” Newham and Keith “Captain” D’Arcy Ryan both scoring 35 points, however Captain snatches the runner-up spot and qualifying for the Finals Day on Count-back (for the record we played 1-9 as our back 9 on the day)


And our other winners.

Nearest the pin was Rich “G” Simpson although he did get a little nervous and had to wander over to see the final result of Clive Snashall’s tee shot! Longest drive was taken by Clive “the ball bounced and ran……” Snashall.

After a very pleasant ploughmans lunch we took advantage of the fantastic Par 3 course that Cumberwell offers. It gives me great pleasure to say that the winning team from those that entered the competition was Jenny Swift, Alan Walters and Chris Padget – well done to the three of you.

A couple of important points, I’ve taken orders from a few of the members to order the new Dabchicks White Nike Polo Tops. The cost for the tops is £30 and features the new updated logo which has received compliments from both members but also other golfers on Friday at Cumberwell. Please let me know if you’d like a top and your size.

The second point is just to say please note the date for the Autumn Masters is Sunday 9th September and the location is Newbury & Crookham – will Matt Reynolds defend his title?

Current Finals Day Qualifiers:

Harry & Remoulds, Gooders & Barty, Jimmy & Capt

Thanks all
