On Monday July 21st 23 Greenkeepers arrived at Devizes BC to take part in the annual Greenkeepers Competiton. Once again the weather was superb and the greens were bowling really well following the weekend thunderstorms.
The competition was played in excellent spirit throughout and the players who lost in their first game were given a chance to play in the Plate Competition – 2 wood – which had a bottle of whiskey (yes Irish!) as the prize.
In the main competition the two Semi Finals were between Gerry Tinson of Chippenham Park and Steve Rose of Rodbourne Cheney and Brian Whittingham and Brian Coles both of Wroughton.
The winners in two closely contested games were Gerry Tinson 11-5 and Brian Coles 10-9 and they will play in the BW Finals Weekend at Devizes BC on 6th/7th September.
The Final of the Plate Competition was between Colin Little of Devizes BC and John Ellis of Amesbury BC with Colin emerging as the winner 10-7.
We are extremely grateful to Devizes BC for hosting this event again – the members worked very hard to provide the excellent facilities and hospitality for a very enjoyable day. Thank you.
