Sale Centenary ready for action
1:27pm Thursday 14th March 2013 in Sport
SALE Golf Club is looking to celebrate its centenary with a wide range of competitions and events during the coming year with great anticipation from their members and officials.
Already a great deal of groundwork has been put into place ready for the hectic action to come.
This includes a centenary book titled ‘A Century Scored’ which has had a great deal of the work done in its production by incoming lady captain Sue Barrett.
Current captain Peter Middleton was delighted with the book as he viewed it with club professional Mike Stewart.
He said: “Sue and all of her contributors are to be congratulated on their efforts which give a great insight into the past 100 years of one of the region’s most respected and successful clubs.
“She has already served as lady captain and is joined in office by another past captain in Ian Bullough and both have done great work for the club over many years and fully deserve recognition of their efforts in what should be a great year for the club.”
Another prominent addition to the Sale skyline is the new Centenary Clock which is in position on top of the changing rooms alongside the clubhouse.
SALE’S men played a midweek Stableford and star man John Russell won a cpo on 28 points from Simon Poucher.
William Wroe Vets were in two competitions with a singles Stableford seeing Noel Brown on top with 40 points after a cpo with John Moloney.
In a Greensome Stableford cricket legend Alan Hay partnered Peter Snowden to a fine winning score of 44 points.
A BB Stableford at Davyhulme Park produced some fine golf led in by Arthur and Oliver Wardle with 42 points.
It left them two clear of Captain Derrick Page and Josh Garnett, Nick Goddard and Dave Higham and Brian Connor and Tim Whitehead.
Cheadle Golf Club are the proud new holders of the White Cup, one of the Manchester Alliance’s oldest trophies played for by mixed pairings.
The change in playing format from foursomes to betterball produced a good entry for the traditional venue of Chorlton Golf Club who had their course in good order for the event.
The White Cup is awarded to the club pair, either pro am or am, with the highest score on the day and in a tight finish Cheadle professional Anthony Millar and his partner Madeline Kingham won a cpo on 41 points from Didsbury’s Danny Wardop and his Sale partner Cath Rawthore in the pro am section with Didsbury pro Peter Barber and Brenda Chadwick next in with 40 points.
It is believed to be the first time that Cheadle has won the trophy.
In the am am section home duo John Davies, the Chorlton Captain elect, and Val Mawson led in with 40 points, one more than Cheadle’s in-form Andy Hall and Pam Ellison who won a cpo on 39 points from Mike Smith and Kath Ruddy of Blackley.
