Rydal Penrhos Society Golf Report 2019

Silcock Salver 25/26 April 2019

We had another successful Spring Meeting at Maesdu and Conwy golf clubs but were not fortunate with the weather this year, having heavy showers at Maesdu and a drizzly morning at Conwy.

27 attended the dinner in the Promenade Room at The Imperial Hotel on Thursday evening, including John Waszek, Rydal Penrhos school’s Executive Principal. Once again a wonderful sum of £500 was raised for the Donald Hughes Memorial Fund.

The leading scores were:

  • 1st Guy Watson 36 + 37 = 73 points
  • 2nd John Millington 33 + 33 = 66 points
  • 3rd Dave Abraham 27 + 30 = 57 points

Denis Delahunt and Steve Roberts tied on 72 points for the Johnny Williams Cup, Denis winning over the last nine holes of the second round. Liz Bruynooghe won the Ladies’ prize with 56 points.

Marsden Trophy 18 June 2019

This year we returned to Tim Williams’ club, Brocton Hall, in Staffordshire.

The twelve who played enjoyed this undulating parkland course situated near Cannock Chase and were indebted to Tim and his wife, Anne for organising our Summer Meeting. The course was playing long after a recent wet spell of weather and the leading scores were:

  • 1st Steve Garge 32 points
  • 2nd John Millington 32 points
  • 3rd Dave Abraham 31 points

Steve beat John on a card playoff and retained the trophy which he won at Knutsford in 2018.

It is hoped to hold the 2020 Marsden at Delamere Forest golf club in June.

Pochin Cup 27 September 2019

Sandiway was once again the venue for the Pochin on a showery day with very little run on the ball following recent wet weather. This was reflected in the scores which were:

  • 1st Dave Abraham 32 points
  • 2nd Andy Hurst 30 points

It was good to welcome Howard Marshall who joined us for supper after the golf. Thank you John for helping to organise another successful day at Sandiway.

The 2020 competition will be held at Sandiway on Friday 25th September

Rydal Penrhos Founders’ Weekend Golf 20th September 2020

It is hoped that the 4 way match between Rydal Penrhos pupils, staff, parents and alumni played for the first time in 2018 will take place on the Sunday of Founders Weekend. Details will be available later.
