The C-I-N Rickshaw Challenge 2019
The annual challenge, which is now in its ninth year, saw a team of six young people and The One Show’s Matt Baker take on the eight-day challenge. It began on Friday 8th November in Holyhead and the team travelled across Wales for three days before crossing over into England in Oswestry, and then made their way down to the finish line at BBC Elstree Studios on Friday 15th November during the BBC Children in Need Appeal Show.
The CIN Rickshaw Challenge passed close to Stanton-on-the-Wolds, via the Melton Road, on Wednesday 13th November.
Many thanks to all the Members who contributed to this worthy cause.
Due to their generosity a total contribution of £240 was sent to the BBC Children in Need Appeal to enable the Charity to continue to change the lives of children and young people across the UK.
The 2019 appeal raised an “on the night” total of £47.9m

Charles Banks - Notts Amateur Seniors Champion 2019
Many congratulations to our own "ever green" Charles Banks who won the recent NOTTINGHAMSHIRE COUNTY AMATEUR SENIORS CHAMPIONSHIP on Thursday 20th June 2019 at Beeston Fields GC.
Charles breezed around the 6430 yard course in 71 strokes (CSS 73), leaving runner-up Derek McJannet (Coxmoor) and 3rd place David Thomas Brown (Sherwood Forest) in his wake.
The Seniors' Match Play Championship takes place over 4 days on Saturday 29th June 2019 at Beeston Fields GC, together with the Notts Men's Match Play event - a great opportunity to watch some of the best Nottinghamshire county golfers in action - both young and not-so-young!
Full results of the Seniors' Championship can be viewed on the Notts Golf Union website
Charles progressed to the final of the Notts Amateur Seniors Match Play in which he was defeated by Patrick Tindale (The Nottinghamshire) by 1 HOLE.
SWGC Win England Golf Award for Championship Venue of the Year
We are very proud to announce that Stanton-on-the-Wolds Golf Club has WON the England Golf Championship Venue of the Year award.
A great achievement and testimony to the huge effort the Club put in to hosting the Seniors County Finals tournament in October 2018.
The England Golf awards evening was on Thursday 21st March 2019 at the Royal Lancaster Hotel, London.
The judges were bowled over by the approach and dedication of volunteers and staff alike – not to mention the quality of the greens – at the English Senior Men’s County Championships last year.
"It’s great to hear that long after the event, the number of regular volunteers has increased, as well as heightening the Club’s profile and number of visitors to this impressive course".

Great Job Team Stanton!
GREAT JOB TEAM STANTON
A very big
To everyone involved in the hosting of the ENGLAND GOLF SENIORS COUNTY FINALS.
We excelled in all areas.
The Event Management team were brilliant and the attention to detail really shone through.
The Catering and Bar Staff (working under extreme pressure) did a fantastic job.
The Volunteers ensured the event ran like a well-oiled machine and did a superb job acting as hosts, ball spotters, parking attendants, practice ground supervisors, score board operators & controllers, setting up the course furniture, helping on the course etc, etc.
The Greenkeepers – Absolutely Brilliant Job! The number of complementary comments we received about the course and the greens in particular surpassed our wildest dreams.
And lastly (but by no means least!) the Membership at large – thank you for giving up the course for a few days.
We are immensely proud to be a part of such a great Club that can pull together and host an event of this stature, and to do so with such great success.
