NAPGC Senior Champion

NAPGC Senior Champion

It is not very often I get the chance to write about me, but I recently became the NAPGC Senior Champion when I played the men’s senior final at West Middlesex Golf Club in West London.

With a field of over 50 contending for the nett and the gross senior title, I was fortunate enough to win both the nett and the gross on the day after a shooting a round of 74.

Here is a snippet from the National Association of Public Golf Courses website:

Once again West Middlesex Golf Club was the venue for the NAPGC Senior Championships 2016. This year the competition was held earlier in the calendar due to a change in entry conditions for the England Golf Champion of Champions Tournament for which the Men’s Senior Gross champion represents the NAPGC. There was some outstanding golf played on a course that was in excellent condition with lightning fast greens.

The Senior Men’s Championship followed on from the Ladies competition. Michael Baker from Bird Hills scored an impressive 40 points to win the title from Dave Saveall of Southsea on 39 points. Larry Hancock from Ruislip was 3rd with 37 points.

The winner of the best Gross prize for this competition goes forward to represent the NAPGC in the England Golf Champion of Champions Tournament at Woodhall Spa in September. This again was a tie and was decided on countback with Michael Baker from Bird Hills outscoring Freddie Holmes of Hainult Forest on the back nine holes.

So onwards and upwards to Woodhall Spa in Lincolnshire the home of England Golf on the 10th and 11th September when the tournament will be held over two days and the winner will be the best gross scores for the 2 days of the championship.

Here is a snippet about the event in September:

The tournament shall be played by stroke play over 36 holes, 18 on Saturday 10 and 18 on Sunday 11 September.

In the event of a tie for first place, there will be a sudden death playoff over holes to be decided by the Championship Committee.
