Colin Easson Motors competition and more golf updates

Jamie HerbertColin Easson Motors, who celebrate their 40th anniversary as a business this year, are based in the village of Cottesmore and have sponsored a golf competition at Greetham Valley for over twenty of those years. 150 gents and 30 ladies played in this year’s stableford competition on the Lakes course over the weekend. It was not exactly blazing May but at least it didn’t rain, although a gusting wind caused a few problems for the competitors.

Melton Mowbray’s Jamie Herbert started with a bogie then a double bogie but soon got into his stride to finish the front nine with 19 points. He did even better on the back nine, registering a fantastic haul of 23 to end the day with 42 points. Jamie said that he felt very relaxed on the course but couldn’t point to just one thing that helped him win, his overall game worked on the day. The win also means that he is now eligible to play in the two day 0-18 Club Championships in July after being cut to eighteen.

Long time clubhouse leader Steve Bennoson who had a fantastic game took second place with 41 points and was cut to eight. Jason Lindsay, Chris Tapsell and Peter Smith took third, fourth and fifth on countback after scoring 39 points.

Ryan Tarrant scored 36 points in the Colin Easson but gained enough points to strengthen his lead in the Martin Boughton sponsored Summer Order of Merit. Ryan has 89 points, Steve Orton, who won the last qualifier,  remains in second place with 75 and Adam Clegg moves up to third with 67. Steve Bennoson jumps up to fourth after his second place this week, he has 63. Fred Aspin rounds off the top five with 55 points.

Thirty competitors played in the Ladies’ Colin Easson competitionSally Bowker had 16 points on the front despite not scoring on hole seven. She got stuck in and came in with a further 19 points on the back to win on countback with 35 points. Jackie Friend was placed second and Nicola Toon took third with 34 points.

In the Junior Competition, Ellie Haughton who is having a magnificent year, won on countback from the 2014 Junior of the Year, Winston Childs. Both scored 33 points. The winners will receive their prizes at Prize Presentation Night in October. 

The Midweek Medal, played on the Lakes course, was contested by a strong field. Five handicapper Graham Smith took full advantage of the reasonably still conditions and came in with a gross 76, nett 71 to take the win on countback. Graham, who is noted for his very steady swing no matter what the conditions, had twelve pars, a birdie on the par five sixteenth and five bogies. He said that he was very pleased with the win but just went out to enjoy himself as he usually does. Nine handicapper Jon Herbert took second on countback. Russell Holden and David Copley were placed third and fourth on countback after coming in with nett 71.

Former Lady Captain Angela Wheeler, off fifteen, was cut to fourteen after she won the Ladies’ Midweek Medal with a brilliant nett 74 on the Valley course. She finished seven shots clear of second and third placed Irene Barstow and Julia Thirlwell.

A bogey competition is not to everybody’s taste but the Seniors gave it a good try out. David Wallace and Keith Godwin were first with six. David Kirtland and Nick Lawson took second on countback from David Aldred and Ken Stewart with five.

Former Seniors Captain Rod Wells had one of the best games of his golfing life in the Seniors stableford qualifier on the Valley course. Rod shot an incredible 45 points, five ahead of second placed Neil Bradbury. All of that despite not scoring on the tenth! Rod said that everything just seemed to work on the day, the drives were mostly good as was his short game. He was cut to twenty one. Frank McGuire was third with 39 on countback from Tim Lee.

The Seniors had a great half away to Thorney Lakes in Peterborough during the week. Seniors’ Captain Peter Wood and partner Tim Pearson had a great game to get the team off to a good start with a win. Two halves and two losses followed, this left the team needing a win for the overall half. Vice Captain Mel Clarke and his partner won on the last despite being three down for most of the game.

Snow update at Greetham Valley January/February 2015

Greetham Valley Feb 6thFriday 6th February 11.30am
All three courses fully open today and on 99% main greens – the only exception is 17th Valley, on temporary green but will be switched to main green as soon as possible. Gloriously sunny forecast over the next couple of days – come and make the most of it!!

Wednesday 4th February 11.30am
Update late morning. Snow is thawing nicely and Adi is hopeful that we will be able to open the Lakes course tomorrow. Further update at 3.00pm this afternoon.

snow on greens 1Wednesday 4th February 8am
Bleh. Very low temperatures overnight. Both main courses closed this morning, Academy course and Driving Range are both open. Anyone for coffee? Toasty warm in the Lounge Bar….

Tuesday 3rd February 5pm
The new snowfall has been thawing in the bright sunshine today although at lunchtime there was still 2cm on the cold greens. Barring any more snow, we are hopeful for golf on all the courses tomorrow. Please do phone the Golf Shop on 01780 460444 to check before leaving home.

Saturday 31st January 9am
Front 9 of the Lakes course and the Academy course are open; an inspection on the back 9 of the Lakes will be held at 11am, there is still a fair amount of lying snow on that part of the course. No rain overnight and it was somewhat chilly. Adi tweets updates too, why not follow him @Adi14

Snow going at Greetham Valley

Friday 30th January 4pm
Adi the Course Manager reports that the snow is almost gone, due to milder temperatures this afternoon, except on north facing slopes. Providing there is no more snowfall overnight, we are looking optimistic for golf on all three courses tomorrow. #fingerscrossed  The courses will be inspected at the crack of dawn Saturday and the updated news will be available from the Golf Shop on 01780 460444. Sorry about the picture quality :)

Fsnow at Greetham Valleyriday 30th January 11am
A light covering of snow both yesterday and overnight has been enough to close the main 18 hole courses but the greenkeepers have been working on the Academy course greens this morning, so the Academy course is open – use orange balls!! If we get any rain today/overnight, this should wash the snow away and we are also hoping for slightly milder temperatures to help do the job. Please phone the Golf Shop on 01780 460444 for updates

Snow update at Greetham Valley


Sunny, frosty and bright again at GV today. Yesterday saw no thaw even in the sunshine and the temperature overnight was minus 6 degrees so that snowy duvet across all the courses is still icy cold – and still there… Forecast is for it to be warmer today, now saying up to 4 degrees so it might start a thaw but that won’t be enough to clear 5cm of snow.  Adi the Course Manager has just spoken to the Members’ Committee because of tomorrow’s Captains’ Drive In and competition and the Drive-In has been postponed to 11am, but no golf competition, and the golf lunch will be served in the Lounge Bar at 12.30pm. There are also over 100 diners booked in for New Year’s Day Lunch in the Rutland Suite. In the meantime, the roads and driveway to GV are still clear, so all is set for tonight’s New Year’s Eve party – we’ll see you there!!


Sunny and bright at GV today, but thermometer only showing 1 degree above zero at the mo. Driving Range open, but still good 5cm of snowy duvet on the courses. Nice for walking the dog, but hopeless for golf. Forecast says temps set to rise from tomorrow, so good chance that the Captains’ Drive-In and 9 hole comp will happen on Thursday. However, avoid Robert today if you can #grumpy…

It’s minus 2 degrees out there right now and hasn’t risen much above freezing all day yesterday (Sunday) even in the sun. Courses likely to be closed for Monday and Tuesday, then fingers crossed a thaw will set in. We’ll keep you posted here, but the Golf Shop will probably be the first to know as they will collar Adi the Course Manager as soon they see him! Lounge Bar and restaurant will be open, lane and drive are clear and we’re revving  up for our New Year’s Eve party night!

SNOW UPDATE 27th DECEMBER  6cm of snow since 5pm Boxing Day at Greetham Valley. Courses are closed but Driving Range is open. Robert has been out on his trusty snowplough to clear the lane and drive down to the Clubhouse, so come on in and warm up! Roaring log fire in the Lounge,  and the view across the snowy golf courses is just beautiful – although Robert doesn’t think so…but Jazz the black lab loves it!
