Ten­nis play­ers swap rack­ets for golf clubs

Macclesfield Express - - THE LAUGHING BADGER -

MAC­CLES­FIELD Ten­nis Club is hold­ing its an­nual golf day at the Tyther­ing­ton Club on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 10.

Mem­bers, their friends and any keen golfers are in­vited to a fun day con­sist­ing of a mixed Sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion in teams of four.

Sta­ble­ford is a golf scor­ing sys­tem where rather than count­ing the to­tal num­ber of strokes taken, it in­volves scor­ing points based on the num­ber of strokes taken at each hole.

Un­der Sta­ble­ford rules, the ob­jec­tive is to have the high­est score, whereas in tra­di­tional scor­ing meth­ods the aim is to have the low­est score,

The com­pe­ti­tion will be based on full hand­i­cap, which means with the best two nett scores on each hole count­ing.

The com­pe­ti­tion in­cludes prizes for near­est the pin, long­est drive and cham­pagne mo­ment and there will be an en­ve­lope col­lec­tion for East Cheshire and a raf­fle.

The tee is re­served for the club from 12.30 with groups go­ing off at eight minute in­ter­vals .

Af­ter the round there will be a sump­tu­ous two course din­ner served in the Dorch­ester suite at 7pm.

En­ter­tain­ment will be pro­vided by gui­tarist and singer/song­writer Becky Mills.

Becky per­forms regularly at venues all over the UK.

The cost for the golf and the din­ner is £45 and for those just at­tend­ing the din­ner the price is £20.

Ten­nis club com­mit­tee mem­ber James Rouse said: “Last year we had seven teams play­ing golf and 40 for din­ner and I’m ex­pect­ing a sim­i­lar num­ber this year.

“We are re­ally ex­cited that Becky Mills can join us.

“She is a very gifted gui­tarist and singer/ song­writer with a su­perb voice.”

An all male-team won the golf com­pe­ti­tion last year.
