This year we were joined by two new players, Jim Garvey (Secretary) and Nick Rose, as John Beaumont, Phil Chadwick and Mike Brain were unable to attend and with the weather kind for the Saturday Stableford competition we looked forward to handing back the Wooden Spoon which we shared with Giggleswick in the previous 12 months.
The results of the Wrekin team which was placed 6th were as follows:
• Charles Hartley 36
• Richard Sutherland 33
• Jim Garvey 30
• Robin Hanson 23
• Nick Rose 18
The dates for 2012 Birkdale Bucket @ Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire are Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 March.
• Pocklington 144
• Uppingham 137
• Oundle 126
• Giggleswick 123
• Wrekin 122
• Worksop 118
• Sedburgh 113
We all enjoyed the usual dinner and draw for the foursomes pairings on Sunday morning.
As usual we played on the championship course, one of the best inland courses in the UK, which is demanding with its deep bunkers and tree-lined fairways.
