LMGC Classic 1 - Les Mielles Salver

The re-arranged Les Mielles Salver from November was played today and the scoring was definitely worth waiting for.

Ian Gingell continued his strong scoring of late with a nett 62 but this was only good enough for 3rd spot.
Gerry Brennan shot a 1 over back 9 taking him to a 76 gross / nett 60 and must of thought this was a winning score but not today.
Daniel Brannan shot a big score during the week for his winter league and backed it up today with a 73 gross / nett 57, a total deserving of the victory.

Winter league 7 is completed

Winter league 7 came to an end on Friday 24th after another extension due to the closure of the back 9.

The big scores continued with the top 12 all in the 40s and 4 of the top 6 all scoring 42pts. Best of the 42s was our Captain who scored a solid 24pts back 9 to take 3rd spot on CB.
Chris Jones shot a 70 gross which consisted a 2 under back 9 to give him a total of 43pts.
Top of the table this week was Peter Roscouet who's level gross back 9 gave him 23pts and a winning total of 44pts

The table after week 6 can be seen in the Club Leagues sub section and it will be updated during the week

November Medal finally played

On the 3rd attempt the November medal was able to be played with the course being open.

The wind was tough for the majority of the day and with the back 9 greens being a lottery it wasn't the easiest day to score on.

It was close at the top of division 2 with the top 5 separated by 1 shot. Best of the nett 66s was Carl Gray who shot a solid back 9 to take 3rd spot. Daniel Brannan played a steady round and his 65 gave him second spot but topping this division was Stephen Allaway who shot a level gross back 9, giving him the win on count back.

In division 1 Chris Whur and the Captain were tied on nett 64 but the Captains birdie, par, birdie was enough to give second spot on count back. Out on this own with the best score of the day was James O'Hara who continued his good recent form to shoot a bunch of birdies giving him a winning score of nett 62

January Medal

After a very frustrating period where half the course has been closed, we were finally able to play a competition with the North side opening.

With the forward tees and the greens being very receptive it was always going to be a low scoring day.

In division 1 Alan Maclachlan shot a sub par round consisting of 3 birdies but his nett score of 63 was only good for 3rd spot. Going out in the first slot was Peter Roscouet who helped himself to 4 birdies and the clubhouse lead with a nett 61. Topping this division was Peter Dixon who shot a 1 under gross front 9 which lead him to a level gross 70 and a winning nett score of 59. Well done Peter

Division 2 scoring was just as impressive with a nett 64 only good for 5th place. 
3rd spot went to Paul Roberts who is finding his feet in competitions shot a solid round for a nett 63. Joe Straiton continued his good form and shot a 2 over back 9 to give him a nett 62 but pipping him by 1 shot was Brian Williams who's nett 61 won division 2

In the 2s sweep we had our biggest entry with 29 people taking part. There were 16 birdie 2s but only 9 of those had entered the sweep to they get a share of the pot.

December Medal

After 6 weeks of the North side being closed we finally got a chance to play 18 holes and get a medal played.

With the tee boxes moving even further forward and the greens playing soft it was setup for some low scoring.

In division 1 Peter Dixon and Kenny Mitchell shared a nett 64 but Kenny stronger last 6 holes earnt him 3rd spot. Chris Haws shot the lowest gross of the day of 70 which included 5 birdies and nett score of 63. Winning this division was James O'Hara who shot a level gross back 9 helping him to a nett 62.

Division 2 brought the low scores of the day with a nett 66 only earning you 10th spot and a 61 giving you 5th.
Jeremy Williams took 3rd spot with a nett 60 on count-back from 4th spot. Its hard to believe that a nett 59 wouldn't win you the competition but this was the case with Ian Ritchie who played some great golf but was just pipped at the post by Phil Hunt who also shot a 59 but his better back 9 gave him top spot..Phil shot a 1 over back 9 which consisted of his last 8 holes all being 4s, well done Phil

In the two's sweep, there was a total of 17 two's but only 5 of the 17 has entered the sweep so they get to split the pot

World Golf Handicapping update

The latest presentation of the World Golf Handicapping system was given for all Channel Island Golf Clubs at La Moye Golf Club on Tuesday 26th November 2019 and was attended by Captain Chris Frost and Tom Park.

In summary, this new system will commence on 02nd November 2020 and in the meantime all courses will be getting a ‘Course rating’ (new) along with a ‘Slope rating’ (new) and it is anticipated that all Courses will achieve this by April 2020.

Players do not have to do anything prior to the new system being introduced but are encouraged to play in as many Qualifying competitions as possible prior to this date. The reason for this is that the Handicap software systems will take the players most recent 20 rounds of qualifying golf and then calculate the average of his best 8 rounds to arrive at a players ‘handicap index’(new).The average best 8 from 20 is a continually moving process.

Under the new system a player may have a different handicap for different courses being played. ‘Handicap Lookup Charts’ (new) will be displayed and a players ‘handicap index’ can be lined up against the Course being played and this will give a player his ‘Course Handicap’ (new) which he will use when playing that particular Course.

Les Mielles White and Yellow tees are regarded as seperate courses on the lookup chart and a player will also use their ‘handicap index’ to establish their ‘Course Handicap’ when playing away courses.

Perhaps the most important factor to grasp is that a players handicap will not automatically increase with a poor round or come down in chunks following a good round due as the Competition Scratch Score (CSS) will no longer exist instead the system will use the average of best 8 scores from previous 20 rounds (continually moving).

The assorted Computer Handicap software systems are responsible for making these calculations and a players ‘handicap index’ will be available the day after the round played.

Further information will be published as it becomes available.

Kenny wins Winter League 2

Week 2 of the winter series was a pretty wet one with a lot of the week washed out.
There was plenty of scores in the 40s over the weekend but leading the way was Stephen Allaway who had a strong back nine of 22 pts which helped him to 42pts. Scott Henry lead the way after the weekend with a great score of 45pts.
Making the most of a dry Monday, Joe Straiton and Kenny Mitchell went out hoping to topple the weekend scores. Joe shot a 1 under back nine for 25pts but his front nine total wasn't quite as strong and Joe finished on 44pts, good enough for 3rd spot. Kenny shot a 1 under front 9 to give him a strong start of 24pts and he backed this up on the back 9 with a level gross back to give him a total of 46pts (69 gross) and a well deserved victory

Winter League series is up and running

Week 1 of the winter league was played last week with 54 players squeezing in their rounds between the constant.

The scoring was solid with 40pts + occupying the top 6 places

Karl Rockett has found some good form over the last few weeks and his 41pts continued this streak.
Stephen Murray had a strong start to his round with a 23pts front 9 which he followed up with 19 on the back to give him a total of 42pts.
Out on his own was Paul Horton who shot a 1 under front 9 giving him 24pts. He followed up his birdie on the front 9 with another 2 on the back to help to 21pts and a total of 45pts, a very strong start to the series.

Week 2 starts on the 26th October and hopefully the good weather forecast stays true

October Medal sees the start of 2019/2020 season

The first medal of the new season was played last weekend with some players shooting some great scores to get their year off to a good start

In division 1 Alan Cabot continued his solid scoring with a nett 67 for third spot with Craig Tucker also shooting 67 but his stronger back 9 edging out Alan for 2nd. Winning the medal was Frank de Ornelas who shot the lowest gross of the day and blitzing the rest of the field with his round of 75 / nett 63.

In division 2 the scoring was a lot tighter at the top. Luke Kellett and Phil Hunt both played great rounds for their nett 64s, giving them 3rd and 2nd spot respectively. Also winning this division with a nett 63 was Karl Rockett who finished strongly with a 4 over back 9, good golf !

In the two's sweep we only had 7 people taking part. There were 10 two's in total with only 2 of them being people that had entered the sweep resulting in them splitting the pot

3 way tie for the summer Thursday Medal league

The last midweek Thursday medal was played this week and it resulted in the closest of finishes.

With the weather at its worst only 21 players took part with the first 11 that tee'd off before midday all returning N/Rs.

nett 74 was good enough for 3rd spot with Andy Perchard strong back 9 giving it to him on countback. Alan Maclachlan went out last and shot a 1 over gross back 9 for a nett 72 but Peter Roscouet also shot a nett 72 but with his 2 over gross on the back it gave him his first victory on countback.

In the league Jerry O'Connor and Frank Booth were both tied at the top with neither of them improving on their totals this week. Alan Maclachlans 72 brought him level with the leaders giving us a 3 way tie. League ties are then decided by lowest scores which went to Jerry and Alan who both had 66s. The next tie decider would be who had won the most comps from the 7
comp series and this still couldnt split them with both winning 1 each. It was decided by the committee to award all 3 members winners vouchers.

Eclectic series comes to an end

Today was the last round of the Eclectic competition that started back in May.

Anthony Boye held the lead after round 3 with a score of 52 but would his 4 shot cushion be enough to keep him top.

In today's round 4, Anthony went out early but his recent good form deserted him today shooting a nett 78 which only improved his eclectic score by 1 shot.

Andrew Perchard is an eclectic expert and is always at the top end of the final league and this year was no different, improving his score by 5 shots today to give him 3rd spot overall.

Chris Whur was lying second after round 3 and this is where he stayed after not playing today

In the competition today Daniel McLaughlin shot a nett 66 which propelled him to 8th spot.
Winning the comp today was Jonny Buesnal who shot a gross 78 / nett 60 and must be a threat to the leader..

Unfortunately this was Jonny's only score in this years series so Anthony keeps his top spot and wins the Eclectic for 2019, well done !

The full eclectic positions can be seen in the Club Leagues section

Alan Maclachlan comes good in the Rosscot

The winner of the championship would be the lowest gross score over the 72 holes but there was a nett winner for the first 2 days and this went to our very own Alan Maclachlan.

Alan played some great golf on the first 2 days to finish 9th in the gross and easily qualified for the 36 holes on Saturday.

Topping the leaderboard at the halfway point was James with a 75 who shot a steady round of 12 pars and 1 birdie.

In round 2 Nicholas Barber and Matt Duffy lost ground with an 80 and 82 respectively but with another 78 was Andy Wood who kept up the pressure on the leader. With James kicking of his afternoon round with a bogey and double bogey it looked like his lead would be surpassed but he dug deep and responded with 5 birdies to finish with 77 and win the club championship with a total of 152. Well done James

In the Elaine Plain (nett) side of the competition James also shot the lowest total with a 64 and 66 for a nett total of 130.

Taking the win, fresh from his hole-in-one last weekend was Trevor Simon who shot a level gross back to give him the lowest gross of the day as well as nett 64. The majority of us will know Trevor hasn't been very well recently so to see him back to form with this win is great to see, well done Simon

Back came James / Clive with a win on 6 and a par on 7 for a nett 3 which squared up the match. A monster 30ft birdie putt by Clive on the 8th swung the game in their favor giving them a 1 shot lead at the half way stage.

Continumm Mixed Greensomes 2018

September 8th saw the annual Continuum Mixed Greensomes take place at Les Mielles with over over 34 pairs taking part in the event.
The winner would be the best gross score of the day with there also being prizes for the best nett scores and stableford score. Teams had the choice of entering the stableford format after the 12th hole and before teeing of on the 13th but this would forfeit them from the gross and nett prizes. 
It was so nice seeing many golfers from various clubs playing in this event and with Dan the sponsor throwing in some subtle challenges it was a day that kept giving.
The evening dinner and presentation was attended by virtually everyone and it was great to have the whole restaurant to the golfers which created a real buzz.
Big praise to the ladies (especially Annette) for organizing the event so well and providing great comms during the week. A special thanks to Dan Hare for once again sponsoring the event and being a great host. Only Dan could get everyone playing heads and bums for bottles of wine...! Well done all and i can see this event really growing into something special.
Congratulations to all the winners who can be seen by clicking on the link below and ive also added some photos of the night in the photos sub-section.

Knockouts - the matchplay comps have given us some shock results with current holders being knocked out and hot favorites getting beaten.

Way out in front and grabbing the win today was Daniel McLaughlin who shot a magnificent nett 61, great scoring Daniel

Following the AGM Monday 7th November I have been asked to clarify what the options are for balls played from the tee at the first hole. There appears to be a lot of confusion with members quoting a new local rule that has been explained to them by the course representatives. I am writing to the rules committee of the R & A for a definitive ruling on this matter. Until that ruling has been given then the following interpretation of the rules will stand. I would urge all members to comply with this until further notice and to explain this to other players. Failure to comply with this ruling during a competition may result in disqualification.

1. There is no new local rule that applies to the playing of this hole.
2. A ball played to left of the new white stakes between the 1st and 4th holes is out of bounds and another ball must be played from the tee under penalty of stroke and distance (3 off the tee, 5 off the tee, 7off the tee etc).
3. This obviously also applies to balls that go left and enter the water hazard on the 4th hole.
4. Out of bounds runs in a straight line from stake to stake from the first stake near the 1st tee box to the furthest most stake behind the 4th tee.
5. If a ball is played from the tee that goes to the right and it not virtually certain that the ball has entered the water hazard then a provisional ball should be played from the tee.
6. If the original ball is found outside the water hazard then it must be played as it lies or if it is unplayable (under one of the bushes in front of the water hazard but not in the hazard) it may be declared unplayable and it may be dropped using any of the options available under Rule 28.
7. If the original ball is found in a water hazard then it may be played as it lies or under the penalty of one stroke it may be dropped using any of the options available under Rule 26.
8. If the original ball is not found then the player must continue with the provisional ball or if a provisional has not been played then he must return to the tee and play again.

It is important to understand that the player and his marker must be virtually certain of where the ball crossed the margin of the hazard in order to invoke Rule 26. This basically means that someone (the players in your group, the course ranger, another player on the course playing nearby) saw where the ball went. It cannot be assumed that the ball is in the hazard just because it cannot be found outside of the hazard.

Full explanation of rules 26 and 28 are in the rules of golf booklet available in the club house I recommend that all players carry one.

We are also offering a pickup/drop off from your house service for £10 or a drop off / collect from our premises for £8.

We will be getting a mobile service up and running in the new future so I can clean your clubs on your doorstep without having to take away to make it more convenient.

I am also selling some ProV1 golf balls and tees at a discount price to ensure you are ready to play your next round. Please let me know if you require any of this delivered to your door I addition to cleaning your clubs.

Please do also view our Facebook page www.facebook/clubcleanjersey and share/like/review our service.

Many thanks and look forward to hearing from you.
