On a blustery day at Padeswood & Buckley Golf Club, the UFGC held their Spring 4BBB, thirty-four pairs played in the competition with members from P&B, Rhyl, Prestatyn, Northop, Flint and Mold taking part. Many thanks to all who entered and special thanks to Lenny Keig from Mold who brought an excellent number of Mold seniors, very much appreciated Lenny.

The wind was a test on the day and the results were very tight until the last group came in.

With just four two's on the day each player received fifteen golf balls.

The winners were Ged Hall and Rhys Bellis from the host club P&B with 42pts, in second place on a card playoff winning with eighteen points on the back nine were S Jones and W Pierce from Mold GC, beating I Jones and P Lloyd also from Mold with sixteen on the back nine both teams scoring 38pts.

Some excellent news coming out of the County,

Following on from last years success all the UFGC affilaited Clubs have agreed to continue with the green fees being charged at a guest rate if any member of an affiliated Club with in the County wishes to visit another club within the County, if the member rings and books a tee time with the Club he is visiting and can show evidence of his membership of an affliated Club he will be able to enjoy the guest fee rather than visitor fee.

This arrangement supersedes the County Card which restricted the member to only one visit to each affilaited Club, many thanks to the generosity of all our Clubs within the County.

In order to asist in the promotion of Junior Golf within the County the UFGC have agreed to donate up to £250 to each of our member clubs on submission of a request for assistance this money will help defray the expense of coaching and equipment for our junior members.
