"Barry Hinks wins by three"
Rugby may be famous for the sport which shares its name, but the town's golf course stands alone in terms of prestige and character. The course is a good challenge for high handicappers as well as the elite player. Correct club selection and accuracy is required rather than length with water featured on several holes you must be precise in order to avoid a watery grave..
Barry 'The Postman' Hinks they call him. Not because he always delivers,.. but because he's a Postman.
Barry normally empties his big baggy sack on a Saturday morning but this time around he chose to walk the green fairways of Rugby Golf Club instead of those cold and dark Tamworth streets.
Barry who has been Mr Consistent this year in our 'Ghost Season' with commendable scores of 33, 33 and 35 points in three tough outings.
I had the pleasure of being in Barry's four-ball on Saturday and believe me the rest of the four-ball myself included tried our best to disrupt his steady play with golf that can only be described as sh.... shocking. For Barry to keep his head amongst the chaos whilst those around him huffed and puffed and cursed was a credit to his temperament.
Barry's terrific knock of 35 points on a course that really is one of those courses you wish you had played beforehand now puts him nicely placed on the leaderboard.
Jason Wellings a late entrant to the event on Saturday came in second, beating Simon Upton on a count-back with 32 points.

The Same As Last Outing
Please if you cannot make an outing be sure to let a committee member know with plenty of notice. A cancellation the night before the outing is not acceptable and can cost the Society money. It will also have people saying behind your back ..."What a c**t".... Im not joking some people in our society have been heard muttering those words. ;)
Dona Lola Rescheduled for 2021
After the huge success of last years golf trip to Spain, we have decided to do it all again. We now have 21 confirmed with a few more welcome to join us subject to availability.
We are now rescheduled to visit on the 23/06/2021 for 4 nights with 3 games of golf, including buggies at La Cala 'America', Mijas Los Lagos and the superb Santa Maria. Steve Willetts and Brendan O'Reilly will be aiming to defend their title next year.
We will also have a new European Trophy after Tommy Dodds lost the last one!!
The committe have decided that there will be a handicap freeze for the 2020 season. No handicap adjustments for the remaining fixtures.
Nothing but praise for another superb Society turnout. On behalf of the Committee I would like to thank each and every one of you for the continued support you have shown this Golf Society over the years. We welcome more new members with even more enquiries coming in from people wishing to join our Society. Our aim is to provide a first class golfing experience both on and off the course at a very competitive price and to make our members feel a sense of pride and belonging in 'THEIR' golf society.
CHECK YOUR CARDS
Please take 2 minutes of your time with your playing partner to check your scorecards before signing them. This is an important part of the golf day and although your cards will be checked again in the clubhouse by a committee member, it really does speed up the process if the cards are marked clearly and correctly.
