Greatrex sneaks under the radar to land Yarmouth and Caister trophy

Yarmouth and Caister GC

The Professionals Salvers, a Stableford competition, brought to end a busy two weeks of competitive golf at the Home of Bogey in weather which saw the four seasons of the year rolled together on a blustery October morning.

Steve Greatrex crept in under the radar with a late but decisive 38 points to pip Andrew Wright (37) points and Brian Johnson (36), who looked to have had done enough to win. Steve is a really steady and extremely competitive player and represents Great Yarmouth and Caister in the Norfolk knock-out team competitions.

The previous week had seen Joey Basey land the much coveted Jack Chase Bogey Cup with a very tidy score of +3. In Bogey golf you don’t simply have to beat off the other competitors you are playing against the course on a hole by hole basis. At times the old lady that is the ancient links at Caister, the oldest golf club in Norfolk, can really put on her parts and make it a difficult challenge for any standard of player.

The club’s Seniors played for The David Futter Bowl and Glyn Chapman came out top again with a very creditable 38 point, He was closely followed by Andrew Mcallan with 36 points. Glyn has achieved three Senior competition wins and leads the Senior’s Order of Merit. He has seen his handicap tumble from 12 to 8 over the season.

The Senior section Hodd’s Trophy team progressed into the 3rd round with a resounding victory over the old boys from Thetford by 17 holes. They now have an away match against Sprowston. The winter open season starts with an Am.Am open on Wednesday, October 31. Details: Gary Potter on 01493 720421.
