Played at Newport Golf Club on 29 th May 2022


Many thanks to Newport Golf Club and their staff for their hospitality on Sunday.


Special mention to Dave Rowson and Ben Ringer for the excellent presentation of the course, and to Club Captain Ray Smith for being our morning starter.


In the scratch event, Chris Hayward knew that he had to birdie the last hole to secure outright victory from Nat Riddett, and duly played the hole to perfection, making his 4ft birdie putt to win by one with a 67. Nat Riddett was 2nd with 68, and Joseph Green came 3rd with a 69.


In the Handicap event, there were three people tied on 41 points, with Alex France taking the trophy from Tam Wilson and Paddy Rasmussen. Very well played to all 3.


Tam took top spot in the Over 55s with his 41 points, 2nd place went to Jason White (39 points) and Brian Wright took 3rd spot with 37 points.


Thanks to all those who entered, and look forward to seeing you all at Ryde on 27 th May for the Summer Meet.
