Bebb takes top award as Thomas shines on the course

Llanelli Star - - Sport -

THE fi­nal com­pe­ti­tion of 2018 for the se­niors at Der­llys Court Golf Club saw more than 50 mem­bers turn out for a nine-hole stable­ford.

And it re­sulted in one of the club’s most pop­u­lar mem­bers, Jeff Thomas, tak­ing first place af­ter an ex­cel­lent bot­tom-nine score of 22 points.

Play­ing off a hand­i­cap of 15, his three-over par score­card held off the chal­lenge of Peter Jones and Ken Breaker, who both fin­ished on 20 points.

In the front nine-hole com­pe­ti­tion, five play­ers were sep­a­rated by just one point, with Roddy Thomas beat­ing Chris Cousins on card count­back, both scor­ing 21 points.

David Rogers, John Phillips and John Llewellyn were all tied just a point be­hind.

Af­ter an ex­cel­lent Christmas buf­fet, at­ten­tion turned to the an­nual gen­eral meet­ing where mem­bers elected Tony Wood as the new se­niors’ cap­tain, with Hugh Thomas as his vice-cap­tain.

Spe­cial thanks were recorded to all the club’s green staff for the hard work in main­tain­ing the course dur­ing the hot sum­mer and to the Wal­ters fam­ily in ac­knowl­edge­ment of the club’s 25th an­niver­sary.

Mem­bers were con­grat­u­lated on rais­ing more than £2,000 dur­ing the year for the cap­tain’s charity, West Wales Prostate Cancer, and the meet­ing also ac­knowl­edged the work of three highly re­spected pre­vi­ous cap­tains, John Hart­ley, Roger Hors­fall and Jeff Thomas.

All three are re­tir­ing from the com­mit­tee at the end of this season and have each contribute­d a vast amount to the sec­tion.

Gra­ham Bebb re­ceived the Club­man of the Year award for his work as com­pe­ti­tion sec­re­tary.

The se­niors now take a win­ter break from their eclec­tic com­pe­ti­tion, with the fi­nal three rounds start­ing in the first week of Fe­bru­ary.
