Club Captain Clive Davies presents the Club Championship Trophy to the 2015 winner, Elis Lewis.
On the last Sunday of June the Club Championship took place. Played off scratch over thirty six holes the winner was junior Elis Lewis with a combined two round total of 150 just beating Tim Jenkins on 151 and Jeremy Edmunds on 155.
Also on the same day the one round Ken Joel Cup was played with Elis Lewis yet again with 71-2-69 winning from Martyn Haynes 79-9-70, Mark Devereux 77-6-71 and Jeremy Edmunds 77-6-71,
Prior to these an extra Stableford was played with only Justin Quinn (5) with 42 points able to handle some nasty windy weather. Second was Graham Saunders (17) with 36 points, third was Trevor Stables (24) 35 and Mike Bradley (19) 34 fourth.
In the July Monthly Medal Aled Bebb led with 83-14-69 beating Idwal Jenkins ,also 83-14-69, on the back nine. Third was Harvi Singh 82-12-70, also beating Ian Jones 82-12-70 on countback.
The Rabbits Dyfed League team had a bad day at the office as they travelled to Carmarthen and lost by 6 matches to 0 while the Tigers travelled to the same Carmarthen Club and also lost but by a more respectable 5 ½ -3 ½ margin.
Meanwhile the Seniors continued their unbeaten run with a visit to Cilgwyn and returned with an excellent 4 matches to 2 win. The Seniors also travelled to Ashburnam for their Open Senior and Robert H Jones with 38 points came second in his category.
Finally in the Welsh Golfing Union Victory Shield Foursomes, Richard James and Dai Blair fell at their latest hurdle losing by 4 and 3 to their Llandrindod counterparts on the links of Borth and Ynyslas.
However Richard James is having a successful season on the “Amateur Circuit” and the club is extremely proud that he will now go on to represent Wales at that level in Sweden.
