Golf Championship 2010
Old Penwithians Golf Championship 2010
Originally it was intended to hold the annual Old Penwithians Golf Competition at West Cornwall Golf Club in June but the chosen date clashed with the start of the World Cup; so it was postponed until much later in the year. A bit of a gamble as weather for golf in November can be a bit hit and miss. As it happened the weather turned out to be much better than expected and 12 intrepid golfers took to the links for the 2010 event.
The Stableford competition was played over 18 holes and for the blustery conditions the scores were very creditable. Last year’s winner, Mike Hicks retained the title with an excellent score of 39 points. The runner up was Simon Pengelly with 38 points and in third place with 37 points was Andrew Coak. Nearest the pin was Phil Thomas. The prizes were presented at a special lunch at the club by Roger Dugdale of Penwithian Wholesalers who once again had generously sponsored the competition in conjunction with the Old Penwithians Association.
