Reinstated after a 3-year gap, the ninth annual Pocklingtonian Golf Day held at The Oaks on Friday 10 June was full of drama including a swarm of bees temporarily invading the 10th tee and a rogue electric trolly taking on a life of its own to end up in the lake along with its owner’s car key! Despite these distractions, Warrendale Farm held their nerve to clinch the win by a single point ahead of Beach House, and claim the President’s Cup.

Ten teams took part in the tournament this year which followed the Stableford format with the best two scores to count on each hole. As well as prizes for the top three teams, there were prizes for Nearest the pin, Nearest the pin in two and Longest drive.

As a bit of extra fun on the 7th hole, players had the opportunity to pit themselves against The Oaks’ golf pro, James Walsh, with anyone hitting the ball closer to the pin than James being entered into a prize raffle. The success rate was just over 25 per cent with 11 players securing a raffle ticket for the prize draw!

Once everyone had finished their rounds, the teams gathered for supper and the prize presentations. Trevor Loten (70-80), ex officio OP President stood in for current OP President, Joan Gough (75-77), to present the prizes.

Thanks go to Pippa (97-06) and Ed Nutt (95-06) and all the team at The Oaks for hosting another excellent day of golf, along with all our golfers for taking part.
