Club Championships


Tuesday 30th August 2011


A total of 58 competitors took part in a variety of competitions last Tuesday on what was the last Junior Club Night of the year but the main competition was to determine who would become Club Champion for 2011.


Approximately 130 people gathered in the clubhouse afterwards (both competitors and parents) to enjoy a buffet provided by the Steward and his staff. This was followed by the presentation of over £900.00 worth of prizes. The Match Play competition which ran throughout the season was kindly and generously sponsored by Lloyds TSB Offshore and the Order of Merit was equally generously sponsored by John Dixon. Much of the rest of the prize fund was raised as a result of the hard work of the Kelly and Cairns families, who organised and ran a Race Night in July.

Emma takes club championship

Killian takes Order of Merit trophy

31st August 2010

On a beautiful summer's afternoon 67 juniors turned out for the final extravaganza of the season with prizes galore to be won, not least the club championship awarded to the best gross score on the day. A record 29 gold competitors competed for the club championship which was won on a countback by Emma Harris who was 1 over par, as was Andrew Dixon. An excellent net score of 63 gave Ed Goulden the net prize with Jordie Lee taking the Silver with a superb 40 points over the 16 holes, Ciara Halton taking the Upper Bronze with 29 points over 9 holes, Katie Watterson the Bronze with 15 points over 6 holes and Harry Pack winning the flag competition with 27 shots over 6 holes. Harry now goes into the Bronze section with a handicap of 54 whilst Ciara and Rachel Hopkinson are elevated to the Silver category with new handicaps of 40. 

The Order of Merit trophy fought for over the 22 week season saw Killian Conroy lift the trophy with an excellent 9.5 point average which means that he was rarely ever out of the top 5 in the competitions he played - great consistency.

The numerous prizes were presented to a packed club house after an excellent buffet enjoyed by all. Special presents were awarded to Anita Cairns on her birthday, the bar staff for their gargantuan efforts throughout the season and Suzie who is now going on maternity leave, we wish her all the best.  

George Harris now signs off as junior captain after a very successful season for Peel junior golf which has seen its number of members rise to 100, the largest junior club on the island, and a variety of new and old competitions played in the year with our first ever bogey competition, a three club competition as well as the inaugural matchplay knockout competition.

Doyle lifts inaugural Lloyds TSB

Match Play Cup

24th August 2010

Sean Doyle and Rob Condra took pride of place at Tuesday's club night as they drove off first to compete in the final of the inaugural club junior match play championship. The first ever to have been held at junior club level on the island. Sean and Rob had fought their way to the final past 24 other competitors over the season long knock-out competition sponsored by Lloyds TSB. In the semi-finals Sean had squeezed past Adam McAuley on the 19th hole whilst Rob had had an equally difficult time in beating Angus Hopkinson.

In the final Rob took an early lead using all his experience as an 8 handicap golfer but Sean was not deterred and as the game progressed his extra shots coming from his 16 handicap were made to count and he finally won 4 and 2. 

The splendid silver Lloyds TSB trophy was presented to Sean on behalf of the bank by Paul McAuley who also presented prizes to the losing finalist and semi-finalists.

Next year's competition is much anticipated as Peel golf club have now nurtured 35 juniors to the level of adult handicap status, including 3 girls, and so next year's competition will be even more competitive.

BallaAfrica Clubnight

1st June 2010.

This nights club night was dedicated to the charity BallaAfrica and Mr Johan Loubser gave a short presentation about the work the people involved do and the difference it makes.During the prize giving the Junior Captain, George Harris, presented a cheque from the golf club as a donation to the charity and a collection was made on the night for the same.

 The competition was played in near perfect conditions and over 60 juniors were out on the course. On their return the scorecards were testament to the high standard of golf being played by the young people in each of the sections. Once again Ana Dawson overcame a stern challenge from the boys by returning 43 stableford points to claim the honours by three clear points from no less than four players on 40 points.

In the Upper Bronze Louie Parmar dominated the section with a super 20 points from 9 holes and after his handicap reduction he is only one stroke from inclusion in the Silver section.

A further highlight of the night was another young lady - Ciara Halton, who is showing lots of improvement and is gaining in confidence. So much so that she scored 18 points for her 6 holes and breezed the bronze competition and with her new handicap of 45 is elevated into the Upper Bronze section and will be a danger to all in there.

47 competitors turned out on the final day of the Junior season with the weather mirroring much of the season, blustery with intermittent heavy showers. Nonetheless, it did not prevent a wonderful day of competitions, many of which are peculiar to the junior championship. In particular for the first time ever, a girls’ competition was featured as the junior section now boasts 13 girl members of which 11 have handicaps. Approximately 100 people including competitors and their relatives attended the buffet and presentation held in the clubhouse. The numerous prizes generously donated by Peter Cain Electrical Services Ltd were presented by Peel’s two captains, Mrs Yvonne Crane and Mr Willy Pugh to the following competitors.
