Congratulations goes out to the winners of @barbadosgolfclub January’s “BGC Monthly Medal” tournament. This new year saw the kick-off of golf tournaments at Barbados Golf Club having a quiet and successful start. The first Monthly Medal of 2022 was held recently at the club on Durants with a full field of mostly Club members competing in the individual stroke play event. Players sought to win the coveted first place prizes among the five categories respectively entered.

Following on from her triumph in last month’s medal, Yvette Thornton won 1st place in the Ladies category with a nett 69 score. Bruce Hackett was the first-place winner of the Senior category, completing the round with a nett 68 but narrowly pulling ahead of Peter Hennessy, also with a nett 68 score, winning on countback. Within the Men’s First Flight category, Peter Thompson also got ahead of the field with a nett 68 score while Mark Linehan finished in second place with a nett 70.

Mark Blakeley and Simon Proverbs were also top scoring players among the field, finishing first and second respectively in the Men’s Championship flight. However, with both gentlemen playing a competitive round, scores were tight when challenged in the low gross category where Proverbs attained a gross 68 narrowly pulling ahead of Blakeley with a gross 69.

The first-place winners of this close competition took home kitchen appliances as their prizes, along with receiving a bucket of beers compliments of the Club’s bar. Second and third place winners of each category also went away with prizes. The monthly tournament at Barbados Golf Club is set to play again on Saturday, 12th February and keen golfers are all welcomed to enter and play. More News here:
