Day 2 Results – Senior’s Open Day – Festival of Golf 2018

Another stunning day of golf on the Caldy links saw a close encounter end with Eddie Crawford & Steve Rayer of Tytherington Golf Club win the Senior Open by a single point, on 48 points.

In a Betterball Stableford format, three teams finished behind our winners on 47 points:

  • 2nd – John Ingle & Peter Jones – 47 Points – Padeswood & Buckley
  • 3rd – Gary Gaynor & M Pritchard – 47 Points – Penwortham & Preston
  • 4th – Mike Edwards & Ernie Bailey – 47 Points – Bridgnorth & Worfield

The nearest to the pin competitions on holes 8 and 17 were equally as close fought, with Dave Woods of Upton-by-Chester Golf Club going closest on the 8th. What a day for Steve Rayer though, who went closest on the 17th as well as being part of the winning team.

Congratulations to our winners and well done to all involved. Roll on day 3 and the Ladies Open.

Launch of new Caldy Golf Club website

Caldy are proud to have launched our new, more user friendly, Club website in order to give members and visitors improved and continuously updated information and to ensure simple access to the site on all forms of device.

From February 2018, members have been able to book tee times online and access more features of the Club than ever before. From April 2018, visitors will also be able to book online up to two weeks in advance. Any visitors looking to book further in advance are asked to contact the Golf Co-Ordinator, Matt Bergh, either by phone (0151-625-5660) or by email (golf@caldygolfclub.co.uk).

The new site design has been expertly developed by a local agency, Katalyst Creative. Much of the superb photography has been taken by Nigel McIntyre who has also painstakingly edited aerial photography for the “flyover” shots which were provided by Condor Aerial Photography who are also a local agency.

A great deal of work has gone into this development and will continue going forward…we thank the office, agencies and Marketing Committee for their efforts.
