CLECS Y CLWB / CLUB GOSSIP (early May, 2014) (08-05-2014)
Further report from Aled
During the Easter period the Junior Section at the Aberystwyth golf club met to celebrate the beginning of their golfing year. The new Junior Captain, Bryony James duly ‘drove in’ in style. Bryony has long been a member at the club and has represented the club successfully in various competitions all over Wales. The honour of being Captain of her section represents the appreciation that the club feels towards her full commitment to the Junior Section at the club over the years.
In the Competition that followed in an 18 hole Stableford, Jack Rimmer with 36 points, held off Aled Saymm on 35 points and Sion Edwards 34 points. Meanwhile the under 11’s played a selected shorter course and in the Boys Section, Liam Thomas completed his round in 27 shots, Jac Morris 33 shots and Steff Taylor 38 shots while in the Girls Section Victoria Talco took 34 shots narrowly beating Shemina Laing who took 35 shots and Alex Clement, 40 shots.
A thoroughly good afternoon came to an end with typical ‘socializing’ in the clubhouse afterwards.
Our congratulations to Angharad Basnett who earlier this year became Mid Wales County Junior Champion and has gone on to complete a superb clean sweep of all the Major Mid Wales County Golf trophies.
