Members will be sorry to hear of the death of Stephen Young on 23rd November. Having holidayed in the village for many years Stephen was a long term member of Whiting Bay who would be seen on the course every morning of his holiday when weather permitted, and often when it didn’t. He was a proficient player and great company on the course, always supportive of the club and its competitions and he continued to maintain an impressively low handicap even during the past year while dogged by illness. He will be much missed about Whiting Bay and our thoughts at this sad time are with Jan and all other members of his loving family.
Sunday 24th November – Medal
Monday 18th November – WOBOT Sweep at Shiskine GC
The Blairs Clean up at the WOBOT sweep
For the second annual WOBOT sweep, 9 travelled to Shiskine only to find a hard overnight frost had delayed the opening of the course. This posed no problem though and allowed us the luxury of a leisurely cup of coffee and some impulse buying in Dougie’s pro shop. Thereafter we enjoyed a beautiful morning’s golf, paradoxically in shirt sleeve weather, followed by a lunch in the Clubhouse Grill – superb!
Pipping husband David with a better last 6 hole score the winner was Lynda Blair with a score of 26 Stableford points.
1st Lynda Blair (160 – 26 Points bih
2nd David Blair (10) – 26
3rd Wolfi Kroner (10) – 24
Finally, a big thank you from all who travelled to Stan Rainey who, to celebrate his recent birthday, insisted on treating us all to our lunch, a very generous and much appreciated gesture. (And it’s great to know that Stan’s birthday will coincide with the next WOBOT trip in November 2020. It’s win, win!!)
Saturday 30th November – Prizegiving Evening
