GOLF: Dolby wins Stoke Rochford Christmas competition

Have your say



Stoke Rochford seniors held their traditional Christmas competition with each player allowed only two clubs and a putter.

Fifty-six entered and winner of the Walker Cup with 41 points was Alan Dolby. Runner-up with 35 was Phil Hewes on countback from Richard Marshall.

The golf was followed by a seasonal buffet lunch and seniors captain Mick Rance presented club captain Peter Gill with a cheque towards his charity, NRAS.

Prize presentations to all the summer competition winners, runners-up and semi-finalists were made and, uniquely, the 21 prizes and trophies went to 21 different players.

Past member and donor of the Walker Cup, Tony Walker joined the members for the competition and generously provided prizes for the top three players.

Roger Nicholls and Gareth Hughes manned the halfway house for which all players were very grateful on a coolish day.

The format of the day was ‘Bring and Win so all competitors received a prize from the table to complete another Christmas competition.
