SHOH Golf Day 2021
It was another fantastic day at The Oaks Golf Club, where a record 100 players turned up to compete in the 12th Selby Hands of Hope ‘Ryder Cup’. The weather was very kind, as the sun relented and the rain withheld, making for ideal playing conditions.
The Blues won the team event, to regain the trophy, making it 6 wins each after 12 years, perfectly poised to make it unlucky 13, for one team next year.
Individual awards went to Tom Guthrie, Richard GreenHands & Pete Grundy, who were all nearest the pin, on their respective holes, as well as Dan Burt won the longest drive on the 18th.
Kevin Harper and Simon Hewitt, shared the flip flop award, for being in the bunker on every opportunity that represented itself.
In the Stableford, Matt Bugg won the 14 handicap, and Paul France won the 15 and over.
The event itself raised a fantastic £2249.78, for SHOH. A total that was boosted by the ‘persuasive’ Sharon Loughton and Colin Tute, who by doing an amazing job on the raffle, generated £495.28.
Massive thank you to all the players and also the hole sponsors. Re the hole sponsor, the last two years have been uncertain; with us not knowing until closer the date what we could or couldn’t do, so I took the decision to only ask a few, with those kind companies/people being displayed on the large board in the Clubhouse; for maximum coverage.
Next year; we will resort back to each hole displaying the sponsor, and also show each on the large board in the club house. (if you want to sponsor a hole for the 2022 event, please let me know, and i’ll offer more details)
All the signs were very kindly donated by Matt Bugg of Sign & Display Solutions, and gave the event a more professional look.
Thanks to our sponsors, and indeed Pippa Nutt, Ed, and all at the The Oaks Golf Club & Spa, for yet another event that couldn’t happen without you all.
Already looking forward to the next one (date tbc-but it will once again be an invitational event))
