Details of The Misters (Ex RAFP/Provost) Golf Society Championships for Sunday 4th and Monday 5th June 2017 at Boston West Golf Club.

Gentlemen, once again we had a fantastic couple of days at Boston West Golf Club. Our final figure of attendees was 38 after a couple having to pull out due to unfortunate circumstances. The weather on Sunday was very favourable but on Monday the winds were very strong and made for some difficult play. However, this did not deter the determined golfers amongst us. 

For the Texas Scramble on the Sunday we had three teams with a Mr Average playing for them. These teams were allowed to play a fourth ball to give them the same advantage as the four man teams. There were some very good scores that came in but the winning team was Colin Gulliver, Rebecca Dave Morris, Gareth Davies and a Mr Average with a nett score of 57.1. In second place was David Gulliver, Jim Davidson, Gavin Johnstone and Paul Stimpson with a score of 59.3. Third place went to Harry Harrison, Neil Richards, Richie Ritchie Harrison and Ian Cadman with 63.1. The winners received 13.00 each which Mr Average treated them to a bottle wine with his winnings!!!! 

This event was followed by a two meat carvery in the evening which was of course an excellent meal. Banter, wine and beer made up the remainder of the evening. The following morning saw us participating in an abundance of breakfast menu. Unfortunately one of our illustrious members put a couple of slices of bread on to toast and the next thing we know the fire alarms were going off so it was evacuation time from the Club House until the alarms could be silenced. I have promised Jeff Vaughan that I will not divulge who was responsible for the alarm going off. My lips are sealed Jeff. 

Monday was very dismal and windy with rain threatening us; however, we all managed to finish without getting the soaking we thought might happen. The results for the day are as follows: Nearest the Pin: Alan Ehrsam Nearest the Pin in Two: Colin Gulliver. Catergory 1 Div 1 Best Nett 0 to 13 Handicap: Colin Gulliver (80) Category 1 Div 2 Best Nett 14 to 20 Handicap: Gavin Johnstone (81) Category 1 Div 3 Best Nett 21 to 28 Handicap: Alistair Grant (71) Category 3 Guest Gross Winner: Neil Wigman (89) Category 3 Guest Nett Winner: Ritchie Harrison (81) Category 2 Best Gross (Inactive Handicapper): David Gulliver (97) Category 1 Ex RAFP Gross Winner and The Misters Champion for 2017: Gaff Elliott with 82 (Nett 76) Category 1 Ex RAFP Gross Runner Up for 2017: Joe Duncan with 84 (Nett 78) 

Thank you all for your participation and making it another enjoyable event. I have booked next year and the dates are Sunday 03 June and Monday 04 June 2018. All 24 Hotel rooms have been reserved with another 18 rooms being scheduled to be built before our event so accommodation should not be a problem. Hope you all had a safe journey home. Have a great golfing year.
