Ladies' Open 2018

On Tuesday 7th August, 156 Ladies from 33 different golf clubs played in the Stanton Ladies' Open.  With the course being in great condition and the weather good, there were some very good scores returned. Several Stanton Ladies featured on the Leader Board throughout the day. However one of the last teams to finish achieved the winning score of 88 points included our own Ann Goodwin, playing with three Ladies from Rushcliffe. Well done to them all.

The team that came second who scored 85 points were from Belton Park, and third were a team including Stanton's Jan Hooley and Jackie Richards who scored 84

In fourth place, also with 84 points were Stanton's Di Sully and her team, and in fifth place was a team from Forest Hill with 83 points.

Nearest-the-pin was won with a hole-in-one at the fifth by S. Young from Chesterfield, who was thrilled to score her first ace. The longest drive was won by Pat Hudson from Burghley Park.

The raffle raised £287, and the delicious cakes at the halfway house baked by Stanton Ladies, raised even more for the Captains' Charity - Keyworth and Disctrict Community Concern.

The Office had worked hard planning the day and producing start sheets and the cards. The Restaurant and Bar kept us fed and watered with their usual cheerful, calm approach, despite the Chef being away on his honeymoon!

A big thank you to all the volunteers who helped the day run smoothly. These included starters, registration, raffle ticket sellers, halfway house helpers, cake bakers, car park attendants and course marshals.

There was no prize presentation, so for those competitors who didn't collect them on the day, vouchers will be sent out in the post to the Team Leaders for onward distribution to the rest of their Teams.

Full results can be viewed on the website.

Many congratulations to all the prize winners. We hope those participating had a thoughly enjoyable day and look forward to seeing you all again next year.

Coronation Trophy 2018

The annual Gentlemen’s Open Competition for the Coronation Trophy took place on Saturday 2nd June 2018 at Stanton-on-the-Wolds Golf Club. 

After being played as a Foursomes since the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, the Organising Committee agreed two years ago that the format be changed to the Four-Ball, Better-Ball MEDAL format, which has resulted in the available tee-times being completely filled in both years, together with a substantial waiting list. 

The Winners :-

The Trophy, donated by George Burr (Captain in 1952) was won by the local pairing of Paul Fletcher & Ian Greatorex (Stanton-on-the-Wolds) with a magnificent nett score of 61

2nd place overall :- 

Last year's Winners Geoff & Samuel Underwood (Stanton-on-the-Wolds & Worplesdon) with a nett score of 64 (on countback).

3rd place overall :-

Tim Bateson & Fred Brown (Stanton-on-the-Wolds) with a nett score of 65 (on countback over the last 15 holes).

Best gross score :-

was achieved by Woodhall Spa members Glyn Roddy & Daniel McEvoy with a score of 71.

Thanks to all the hard preparatory work by Stanton's dedicated Green Staff, the course was in perfect condition in spite of all the rain that had fallen in previous weeks. The greens were running fast and true and living up to their reputation of being the best in the County. Feedback from the competitors has been very positive and all those involved in the organisation are to be congratulated and thanked for their contribution (no matter how large or small) to all the day's events.

Many thanks are also due to the 188 entrants from 31 different clubs who supported this year's Coronation Trophy. Keep an eye on the website for next year's entry forms - they should be available towards the end of the year.

Congratulations as well to all the prize winners - we hope to see you again soon.

Ladies Open 2017

The annual Ladies Open got off to a bright and breezy start, with the starter in her floral headgear and the Ladies all looking colourful, co-ordinated and hopeful.

From a total field of 144128 Lady Visitors from 34 clubs situated all around the Midlands, experienced a mix bag of weather and the klaxon stopping play whilst thunder reigned above. Once play resumed after a brief interlude the scores came pouring in, and the leaderboard frequently changed with the top two teams being in the last three groups to submit cards. 

The group from Mickleover claimed the day, being the winning team, the nearest the pin and longest drive prizes. With their scores littered with birdies and an eagle, they beat the team from Kibworth on count-back, so well done Ladies! We look forward to welcoming you back next year.

There was no prize presentation, so vouchers will be sent out in the post to the Team Leaders very shortly for onward distribution to the rest of their Teams.

Many thanks go to the hardworking team of Ladies, Gents and Staff from SWGC, who made this a very smoothly run and well enjoyed event. Also last but not least a special vote of thanks to our Greenkeeping Staff from the winning Team, who were all most effusive in their praise of our wonderful course.

Coronation Trophy 2017

The annual Gentlemen’s Open Competition for the Coronation Trophy took place on Saturday 3rd June 2017 at Stanton-on-the-Wolds Golf Club under blue skies and a tranquil breeze - perfect conditions for a leisurely stroll around the golf course.

After being played as a Foursomes since the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, the Organising Committee last year deliberated long and hard before agreeing to implement a change to the Four-Ball, Better-Ball MEDAL format, which resulted in the tee-times being completely filled. This year, entries were even higher, with all places from 7.30 in the morning to 3.00 pm being occupied (together with a substantial waiting list). 

The Winners :-

The trophy, donated by George Burr (Captain in 1952) was won by formidable father-and-son combination Geoff (Stanton-on-the-Wolds) and Samuel (Worplesdon) Underwood, with a magnificent nett score of 62. The pair (late starters), were aware of a similar score already posted in the Clubhouse and thought they needed a birdie on the last to overtake it. Samuel duly delivered, smashing a drive and 3 metal onto the putting surface, and with Dad urging him not to charge the putt for an eagle, nestled his approach by the side of the hole for the tap-in birdie. Job done, or so they thought - 61 Nett. However when their card was submitted and scrutinised, in their excitement the score had been added incorrectly, and turned out to be "only" a 62. A tie - or was it? Fortunately their dejection turned to euphoria when "the computer" came to their aid and awarded them 1st place by virtue of a countback over the last 3 holes!

2nd place overall :- 

Phil Norris & Robert Tigg (SWGC) with a nett score of 62. (also last year's runners-up)

3rd place overall :-

Steve Marlow and Graham Armston (Longcliffe) with a nett score of 65 (on countback over the last 9 holes).

Best gross score :-

was achieved by local Stanton lads Dan Limon and John Jenkins (SWGC) with a score of 69.

Thanks to all the hard preparatory work by Stanton's dedicated Green Staff, the course was in perfect condition with many regulars commenting possibly the best ever. The greens were running fast and true and living up to their reputation of being the best in the County. Feedback from the competitors has been very positive and all those involved in the organisation are to be congratulated and thanked for their contribution (no matter how large or small) to all the day's events.

Many thanks are also due to the 204 entrants from 31 different clubs who supported this year's Coronation Trophy. Keep an eye on the website for next year's entry forms - they should be available towards the end of the year.

Congratulations as well to all the prize winners - we hope to see you again soon.

Mixed Open 2016

20 pairs played in this year's inaugural Stanton Mixed Open - a Stableford Better-Ball format with a shot-gun start.

In spite of a disappointingly low entry, the competitors who did take part had a thoroughly enjoyable day, with the weather elements behaving themselves for once.

The combination of traditional exemplary organisation, the magnificent state of the course and the fine cuisine, ensured the day's success,

Rest assured, Stanton looks forward to seeing all the Visitors who supported this competition, at next year's event. Your assistance in spreading the word would be very much appreciated, so that the 46 available slots can be filled.

Clearly advantage of a somewhat depleted field was taken by the last-minute pairing of Stanton Club Manager Paul Keeling and veteran campaigner Bridgett Patrick, who breezed around their home course collecting 43 points on the way. Congratulations to both of them - it is understood Bridgett's other half Jim was quite delighted with the pickings!

2ndS Holborn (Lincoln) & J Holborn (Market Rasen) 41 pts
