After long layoff, Flanagan finally likes where his game is going.

  "Flan Dabi Dozi!"

When Paul Flanagan teed it up at Sapey Golf Club on Saturday it had been twenty months since his last Bagot Arms start and the first time he had hit a competitive golf ball. Let that sink in for a minute.

That's almost two years sucked out of Flanagans colourful career, which was interrupted first by covid and secondly by a broken wrist (well sprain really, but it sounds better).

Small wonder then, that the 51 year old veteran was so encouraged by his performance at Worcestershires (I hate spelling that) finest, Sapey Golf Club.

Flanagan fired a nett 64 to record a mouthwatering 41 points to be crowned the champion of Upper Sapey.

Some players in his position would have given up, content with going the pub every night and getting hammered.... Well he still does that, but you know what I mean.

An emotional Paul said afterwards, "I told my wife and kids, this is going to be the hardest thing I have ever had to do, to try and compete again with the likes of Tony Roche, Steve Connors and Steve Willetts after taking two years off, I dont think nobody has ever done it before."

Anyway thats enough of Paul. Mark Bailey came in second with 40 points and he didnt have a sob story he just got on with it!

New man on top of the leaderboard is Mr Consistent, Richard 'Woolly'  Woolgrove who came in with a fine score of 37 points.

 

 

 

Sapey Golf Club

OUR RATING: 8/10

 

A terriffic society venue in peaceful surroundings. The course was busy but the pace of play was excellent.

The greens were in fantastic condition and the views around the golf course were very picturesque.

Keep the ball on the fairway here and you really will score well. Some great Par 3's here, choose your club wisely.

The welcome we received from the Pro-shop staff to the waitresses and bar tender was first class.

Definitely our best society venue this year. We look forward to returning again soon.

 Dona Lola Rescheduled for 2022

After the huge success of last years golf trip to Spain, we have decided to do it all again. We now have 25 confirmed with a few more welcome to join us subject to availability.

We are now rescheduled to visit on the 23/06/2022 for 4 nights with 3 games of golf, including buggies at La Cala 'America', Los Naranjos and the superb Calanova. 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!!

 

 

ALWAYS 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.
