Cleobury Mortimer Golf Club Director of Golf
Hello everyone and welcome to a bumper newsletter this week.
As normal we have loads to report from one of the busiest and fun filled clubs around. The autumn colours are now out in full and the course is looking great for the time of year. The greenkeepers have been out blowing the leafs and picking them up. With the weather so good it is the ideal time to come and play.
Skies The Limit for Jack
Jack Severn is the 2016 Worcestershire union of golf clubs boys match play champion.
Jack won his semi final 7&6 and then went onto win the final 4&3.
Jack played some stunning golf not loosing a single hole the entire day. Remember this is an under 18s event and Jack is still only 15.
On the first day Jack won his first match 4&2 and his second match 4&3.
Jack still has 3 years left in the county under 18's set up and winning this already he could well be set to dominate over the coming years.
With a future this bright the skies the limit for young Jack and not even a range finder can measure that!
Below is the report from the county.
Boys Matchplay Finals - Cleobury Mortimer GC 25th & 26th October 2016
16 of the best U18 players from across Worcestershire arrived at Cleobury Mortimer GC, having qualified for the Worcestershire Boys Matchplay Finals through their performance at the Worcestershire Boys Strokeplay Championship held earlier in the year.
Tuesday morning had barely dawned by the time the first round matches started at 8.00am on a very cold autumn morning at Cleobury Mortimer GC. The first round saw a number of tight matches, non more so than the match between Rhys Hopkins (Fulford Heath) who beat Cameron Green (Wharton Park) on the 1st extra hole.
After a light lunch the 2nd round started on Tuesday afternoon, and the close matches continued with 3 or the 4 matches coming down the 18th hole. Matt Osborn (The Abbey) beat Chris Crisp (Worcester G&CC) by 1 hole to set up an all The Abbey semi final against Harry Nicholls, who beat Ted Pickering (Worcester G&CC) 2up.
The other semi final was to be between Jack Severn (Cleobury Mortimer) who beat Joe Price (Hagley G&CC) and Rhys Hopkins who beat James Lloyd (Worcester G&CC) 2up.
Wednesday morning started with a 30 minute fog delay, but this did not seem to affect Matt Osborn and Jack Severn who both had comfortable victories to set up an intriguing final. Jack was to make great use of his local knowledge and played some solid golf, to overcome Matt by 4&3 in the final.
Jack commented that he had played pretty good golf over the two days, and had not lost a hole in either the semi final or final.

Jack's season, although not quite finished, has been hugely successful, with many wins, and a reduction in his handicap to 1.5.
During his closing remarks, Will Painter, WUGC President, was keen to thank everyone at Cleobury Mortimer GC for agreeing to host the finals, and remarked just how beautiful the course was even at this late stage of the year. He also thanked Dave Pain and his team for being so flexible and accommodating to the changes required during a match play event with limited daylight hours and fog delays. Finally, he thanked the catering and bar staff who go out of their way to provide a friendly and efficient service. If you have not tried Cleobury Mortimer GC in recent years, it is a great venue to visit.
Captain Bob Finishes First
Alliance season is now here and Team CMGC are busy competing. The first event of the winter season was at South Staffs. Tom Pain, Ian Dorrell, Tom Neath and Bob Lucas had a fantastic day just finishing outside the prizes as a team.
In coming club captain Bob Lucas however finished joint first in the amateur individual. Bob shot 36 points on some really tough greens and was left ruing a missed 12 inch putt on the last that would of seen him win outright.
Playing partner Tom Pain added.
'It was great to see Bob playing so well on a tough South Staffs course, I would like to think I inspired him to play so well! Only joking, to get 36 points off ¾ handicap with zero points on two holes is a great effort'.
If anyone would like to play in these Pro Am's please pop into the pro shop.

On Friday 28th October over 60 members and visitors joined in the night golf fun at CMGC hosted once again by Jon and Ange Gaskell.
The weather was extremely kind with competitors battling it out over a shortened 9 holes on both Badgers Sett and Deer Park.
There were some great scores over both sets of courses with many teams completing the course under par. The winning team over Badgers Sett were Tom Rawlings and co. Taking top spot over Deer Park were Sam Brownhill, Colin Brownhill, Ross Brownhill and Rob Brownhill. As you can imagine it's very hard to try and get some pictures during the event but we did manage to get a picture of the winning teams.
A big thank you to everyone who took part, we hope you all enjoyed it and obviously a massive thank you to Jon and Ange Gaskell who organised the day and night and to their volunteers including new club captain Bob Lucas who gave up a lot of their time to help make it such a successful event.
Two teams top the Tonne in the Weekends Texas AM
As the glorious October weather continued, a members and Guests Texas AM took place. With the beautiful orange and yellow leaves gracing the floor it was a game of keep the ball on the fairway or you could have some trouble finding your golf ball. This didn't seem to make much difference to a number of teams with the majority of teams shooting some great scores.
With a number of great teams on paper playing it would be an exciting competition to see which team came out on top.
The team of Graham Butcher, Dave Gordon, Dave Walker and Roy Dudley lead from the front with a great score of 99 points. Matt in the shop felt that a team would break in to the 100's but it took until the last group of the morning players to prove he was right, Selwyn Clarke and Darren Snape, were joined by Mr Williams and Mr Massey shooting a fantastic 100 points.
The day however belonged to the third to last group out who just managed to sneak one more point finishing on the magical 101 points. The winning team consisted of Neil Brydon, Paul Liggins, Jamie Fearnley and Andy Knott. A great team effort with all four players consistently proving their worth with net birdies being a regular theme throughout. Well played.
1st - Neil Brydon, Paul Liggins, Jamie Fearnley and Andy Knott
2nd - Clarke, Snape, Williams and Massey
