Presidents Cup

Saturday 17th July 2021

For the first time in 99 years, Swaffham Golf Club has a Lady Club President; Mrs Linda Holland was voted in as Club President at the 2021 AGM in March.

The Presidents Cup was played on Saturday 17th July; a hot, sunny, summer day.
There was a great turnout, so thank you to all of the 82 players who competed in the President’s Cup. Thanks also to all of the volunteers and Club staff who helped to make this day a success. You know who you are – couldn’t do it without you!

The President’s Cup was won by Thomas Atkins with 44 points. Congratulations!
The Long Putt Challenge, which was great fun, was won by Colin Blowers. Congratulations!

Swaffham Golf Club celebrates its centenary next year (2022) and we raised £675 for the Centenary Fund on Saturday. My thanks to everyone who contributed. We will all see the benefit next year with great golf and social events for us all to enjoy.

CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP WEEKEND

SAT 26th & SUN 27th JUNE 2021

The Men’s Club Championship took place over the weekend of 26/27 June and attracted a field of 61 members.

The weather conditions were variable with Day 1 being relatively calm and dry which resulted in some good scores being posted. Day 2 however was quite blustery but remained dry with the sun putting in appearance for the sudden death playoff to decide the overall victor. The blustery conditions certainly affected scores on the second day.

After 36 holes last year’s Champion, Stacy Weeks, was tied with our 2016 champion, John Shapland, on a score of 156. This final pairing provided some exciting moments with Stacy, our leader after Day 1, birdieing the last 3 holes to force the playoff. This was won by John on the first extra Hole. Our congratulations go out all who played over the 2 days but particularly to John and Stacy for giving us such an exciting and dramatic finale!
I would also like to extend thanks to the greens staff for presenting us with a course in excellent condition, the Pros Shop for assisting in hole and tee placement plus the catering staff who kept is fed and watered; not forgetting of course the office and competition and handicap team.
