Autumn Festival of Golf

The Autumn Festival of Golf took part at West Cornwall Golf Club with 3 days of competitions being held on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.

Wednesday was a better ball event and with the wind playing a part, the scoring was reasonable. Of the early starters, it was home players Mark Thomas & Andrew Wallis who scored 42 points, which was then matched by Terry Griffiths & Mandy Dennison. This was not matched until Nick Allen & Don Ruhrmund carded 43 points and in the group directly behind them, Mark Hughes & Andy Postans also managed 43 but with a better back 9, it was Allen & Ruhrmund who took the honours.

Friday was a 4-person team event and the wind was again strong with the early starters unable to break par. However, Paul Hirst, Brian Hosken, Larry Whittaker & Brian Joy then came in with 77 points to hold a healthy lead. It looked like this might be the high score until Jack Lorys, Phil Lorys, Neil Hodding and Malcolm George came in with an excellent 83 points to claim victory.

Saturday was the final day Texas Scramble and despite its popularity the wind and the rain saw many teams pay their entry fee and then head home! However there were still 21 teams that braved the elements and the weather began to improve as the afternoon went on. First out and always dangerous were the Tehidy Park team of Carl & Dale Band, Justin Harrington with Justin Barnard who managed 57.0. The ‘usual
suspects’ Rob Broadbridge, Ian Pleasants & Giles Piper, this time joined by Rob McCabe scored 55.8 but shortly after them, Tom Ruhrmund, Joel & Jamie Cameron with James Franklin came in with 53.7. The weather started to improve for the later starters, and Lee Bushby, Allan Hampshire, Adam Barber & Mark Thomas came in just 0.1 behind that on 53.8. However it was one of the last groups, Andre Otto, Charl van Niekerk, Dan Bagshaw & Mark Williams who came
in with 51.3 to win the event.

Friday and Saturday saw 88 teams of 3 take to both West Cornwall and Mullion golf courses for the annual Coast to Coast tournament. Teams travelled from all over Cornwall and beyond to take part in this ever popular competition. With 2 scores to count on each hole and played as a Stableford, half the field spent the first day at Mullion and half at West Cornwall with a switch around for day 2.

Day 1 was hard and fast at West Cornwall and as the greens dried out during the day it became even more of a challenge. However it was the home team of Ian Hodge, Phil Weaver and Nick Hatton who used their knowledge of the course to score 79 points. From Downes Crediton, Paul Edgcumbe, Tony Rowe and Matt Phillips scored 77 as did the team from Woodspring Golf Club in Bristol of Rob Fairclough, Paul Tomlinson & Paul Gibbs. The all Mullion team of Scott Paterson, Paul Greet and Jamie Greet stayed in contention with 76.

Meanwhile at Mullion, the scoring was also difficult but the best score of the day was made by Paul & Lewis Jackson of Perranporth with Dave Tregidgo (Porthpean) who amassed 82 points. West Cornwall’s team of Rob Broadbridge, Giles Piper and Allan Hampshire scored 80 whilst Dean Tulley, Stepehn Pollard & Gary Wal managed 79, closely followed by Paul & Jason Gay (Carlyon Bay) and Matt Gunn (Truro) who scored 78.

With some heavy rain before 9am at West Cornwall, the course became a little softer but not much. The early scoring was good with Broadbridge, Piper & Hampshire managing 79 to go with their first day 80. Jackson, Jackson & Tregidgo then stunned everyone with 90 points, which was surely going to win the competition when added to their first round 82. Neil Razzell, Robbie Ham & Colin Mathews from Perranporth managed 85 with Gay, Gay & Gunn scoring 84.

Meanwhile at Mullion, Mike Wigley, Doug Pedrick & Ronnie Barr scored 80 points early on and Rod Handyside, Phil Sedgeman & Chris Sandow made the most have having all 3 players for 18 holes to score 79. The last 3 groups however saw excellent scoring with Ben Easterling, Lee Bushby & Jon Rowley scoring 82, the best of the day and Hodge Weaver & Hatton and Paterson, Greet & Greet both getting 80 points.

However, as expected it was Jackson, Jackson & Tregidgo who with a total of 172 and the best score at each venue on each day who won the overall honours by a 10 point margin.

Coast & Country 25th & 26th April 2018

The ever popular team event took place at West Cornwall and Tehidy Park Golf Clubs on Wednesday 25th and Thursday 26th April with 99 teams of 3 taking part. The weather was kind although the wind proved troublesome on the first day.

At West Cornwall on day 1, Paul Edgucumbe, John Davis and Graham Knowles from Downes Crediton/Exminster, managed 72 points to lead the way early on and this was matched by Steve Vieira, Andy Goves & Alan Blaikie. With the wind staying strong all day, these scores looked like they would be best in until the last few groups, two of which, Dean Tulley, Stephen Pollard and Gary Wal, and Ben Easterling, Lee Bushby and Phil Sedgeman, both scored an excellent 75 points. Both teams being based at West Cornwall so knowing the track well.

The wind also played a part at Tehidy Park, but it was the home team of Martyn & Rob Churchill with David Goldsworthy who lead early on with 75 points. However, Tehidy Park Captain, Peter Simmons, with Andy Beazley (Truro) and Jason Hampton (Stover) surpassed this with 76 and looked to be leading the field until the very last group, Rob Barnard, Justin Barnard and David Bailey, also from Tehidy Park, managed 78 points.

Day 2 saw a drop in the wind and the scoring began to improve. At West Cornwall, Carl & Dale Band with Justin Harrington scored a very impressive 82 points and this proved to be the best score of the day. Shaun Harvey, Dan Olver and Billy Couzens from St Austell amassed 77 points and this was followed by another St Austell team of Gary & Tim Warren with Damian Burgess who scored 78 points.

This score was matched by Ian Hodge, Mark Hughes and Phil Weaver (West Cornwall) and Keith Smallman, Ian Harry and Steve Richmond from Whitsand Bay. The score was popular as late starters Easterling, Bushby and Sedgeman also posted that mark but it was Tulley, Pollard and Wal who took the honours for the daily prize with a great 79.

The overall positions were tight with the 82 from Band, Band & Harrington putting them on a total of 149 that looked good. However, Harvey, Olver & Couzens 77 with their 73 from day 1 meant they totalled 150 to take the lead. Simmons, Beazley and Hampton only managed 73 with their first day 76 to fall 1 short of the leaders. However, Charlie Phillips, Nick Datson and Aaron Stephens from Newquay who were carrying forward 74 from day 1 at Tehidy Park, scored 76 on day 2 at West Cornwall to tie the lead. This left 2 team with chances to win on the course and Barnard, Barnard & bailey scored 74 to go with their winning 78 on day 1 for a 152 total and the lead but the 79 from Tulley, Pollard and Wal gave them an excellent total of 154 to win this year’s competition.

Afterwards there was considerable praise for the condition and presentation of both courses and for the quality of the food provided at both venues.
