Junior Open gets the plaudits
Orsett's annual Junior Open had a great representation this year, over 40 cadets from all over the County took part. In blustery conditions the prizes were shared mainly by home Cadets. It helped to have home advantage no doubt, although the course was playing opposite to recent days due to the heavy rainfall we had just encountered.
Scratch winner was Zach Chegwidden
Nett winner was Davis King
The Cadets thanked Organiser event Mark White and all the Orsett staff for a great day. The Club managed to hold the event with the help of two sponsors, Essex Tankers Ltd and Security Projects Ltd keeping the entrance fee to just £10.00 for each player. Entries included 5 girls, including one player from France, so word is getting about how good Orsett Golf is becoming!
Orsett get one step closer...
Orsett cadets set alight Benton Hall last weekend in the Youth Shield quarterfinal against Clacton. Captain Will Percival was really pleased with his team's efforts.
"Our team has improved so much this season and we have started to believe in ourselves too. Our team spirit has been great which rubbed off from those who played in the Thornton Cup matches.4-1 was really strong, we are really looking forward to the semi-final against Rochford. I just hope no one is on holiday!"
Pro's Day is nearly full! We have very few spaces left so get in touch if you would like to play. Enter on your own or with a group of members, we can fit you in at the moment!
One of the more unusual events at Orsett where men and ladies compete for the same trophy. Winner on the day was Tina Gregory
with a brilliant score of net 68! Runner Up on count back was Robin Aves
from Mat Lewis
filling third spot on the podium. I'm sure Tina
will celebrate with a glass of wine and a song. Congratulations Tina
, great playing, the handicappers are finally catching up with you.Madeira disappointment for Ricky…
Attached Orsett Professional, Ricky Brackenbury
played last week's Challenge Tour event in Madeira. If you recall he qualified for the event via the Jamega Tour.
The event was meant to be held in May but due to horrific weather it was rescheduled. He took my assistant Andy
to caddie. According to Ricky
the only good things for the week was the weather and competing in a quality field of players.
He didn`t have his "A" game with him, even with Andy's
encouragement he unfortunately missed the cut. Ricky
is now gearing up towards the early stages of Tour School in September.
We wish him the best of luck!
