The Little Hay Juniors teed off for the first time in 2012 as the half-term stroke play competition took place last week.

The clear winner was Harry Chapman with a net 71, second was Luke Wrathall with 76 and third was Ryan Howe with 77.

The juniors section has been growing for the last two years due to efforts by the club and the golf complex, and a full programme of coaching, competitions and matches has been arranged for 2012.

Any boys or girls wanting to take up the game or join the club should contact the Little Hay Golf Complex or phone John Poston, junior organiser, on 01442 873343.

Elsewhere, on Saturday, the men’s section competed for the Alan Irwin Trophy. Nearly 30 players entered and the winner was Phil Chester with a commanding 47 points over Keith Muir (38) and Nick Pinnock (36).

On Thursday, the 35 Little Hay senior men held an away day at Hatfield London Country Club where they played the new course.

Graham Cracknell shot the best individual score – 39 points. Nearest the pin was Derek Tarling and longest drive went to Geoff Selley.

The team prize was won by Cracknell, Roger Woods, Peter Humphrey and Jon Ridgewell.

Little Hay ladies’ competition was called off last week due to snow but the ladies will be welcoming interested new members for a chat over coffee on March 3 and 5.
