Category Championships 2019

On a very windy day following a period of heavy rain Mendip Spring hosted the 2019 Category Championships and credit given to the green staff  for getting the course ready. The weather caused  mayhem especially on the back 9 and some big numbers were returned. There was only one score under 80 all day and other than a handful of players the majority saw their handicaps go up. Regardless of the conditions almost everyone returned their cards and the atmosphere in the clubhouse at presentation suggested most enjoyed the experience if not the scoring. Not all found the examination impossible and a truly great score in Category 3 saw the best gross of the day 79 nett  66 returned by Lee Andrews from Weston-Super-Mare GC. In Category 2 the winning score came from another Weston-Super-Mare member Steve Dowden with a gross score of 83. And the trophy winners  were completed as Howard Simms, Mendip Spring  GC came home in 106 to claim the Category 4 title.
