The Burgham Season Continues - Ladies and Gents' Results

Now the greenkeepers can get onto the course with all the mowers and machinery, Burgham Park is looking fabulous (even though we say so ourselves!). Everyone who played this last weekend enjoyed the course and the conditions. Thanks for all the positive feedback!

On Saturday the Ladies held their second strokeplay competition of the season, the first under qualifying conditions. Our promising young player Robbyn Watson (pictured) came out the winner with a really stunning net 69. Robbyn's handicap took it's first tumble after such a score! In second place was Michelle Easton, Michelle has done really well in both strokeplays so far. These competitions make up the Ladies Finlay Trophy over the season, and Michelle is currently top of the leaderboard. Well done both of you.

On Sunday the Gents had their first Open of the season, a Team of 4 Texas Scramble. In lovely conditions the winners came in with a great score of 58.9. Well done guys. Full top 5 were;

1st - Billy Mack, Martin McDonald, Christopher Ives, Mason McKidd (58.9)
2nd - Paul Gleghorn, James North, Alistair Pickersgill, Ben Watson (59.5)
3rd - Keith Hanson, Paul McCulloch, Carl Hanson, David Machin (60.0)
4th - Alan Payne, Craid COwan, Geoff Baston, Geoffrey Batson (60.7)
5th - Lloyd Simpson, James Fairley, Daniel Gill and Jack McNally (61.1)

They're Off!

Our season at Burgham well and truly got underway this last weekend. After what has seemed endless rain, the course was looking in really good condition and many thanks must go to the greenkeeping team for all the effort they have put in to getting the members back out on a full 18 holes.

In beautiful sunshine the Gents' and Seniors got a great game in and the smiles continued in the Clubhouse as Frank Leet (pictured in the photo gallery) and Charlie Errington were announced as the overall winners of the Seniors Group 'Smackers' Winter League. Charlie and Frank could not be separated on points, wins, nearest the pins scored over the winter, so were jointly awarded the trophy. Well done both of you.

The Ladies played their first 18 hole competition of the season, the RVI and Margaret Lloyd Foursomes. Mandy Scott and Gill Smith (also in the photo gallery) ran out winners with 33 points. THe pair will go forward to the Northumberland Ladies Foursomes Final in August. Congrats to both of them too.

Now the weather is looking brighter and the course is much drier (look at those trolley wheels in the photo shots!) we look forward to seeing you on the course and having that cup of tea or beer in the clubhouse again soon!

Clubhouse Plans taking shape

The investment into Burgham Park continues apace with the delivery of the initial designs for the extension and refurbishment of the clubhouse.

The artist's impressions have been received and the possible floor plans for the clubhouse interior are taking shape and being discussed with owner Russell Foster.

This sees a lot of hard work come to fruition and the refurbishment will utilise the funding received from Cussins due to the new housing development taking place on the club's land.

David Armstrong, Club Director said 'A lot has already been invested in the club over the last 18 months and this project to refurbish and extend the clubhouse sees us take the improvements to the next phase. Members and visitors will all benefit from this investment over coming years, but we'll need a bit of support and patience whilst the work is undertaken - but all for a really positive outcome over the longer term. We are really looking forward to making these changes and delivering a further improved experience for all who come to our course'
