Oba Spring Cup

The inaugural OBA ‘Spring Cup’ was played at Royal Porthcawl on Saturday 16th April, 2016. There was a great turn out with OB’s coming from all over the UK. The eventual winners were brothers Duncan RL Jones (SDA, 99-04) and Edward DL Jones (SDA, 03-06).

Match Report S

pring definitely beckoned – lots of Sun (and a little hail in between!), and not much wind, ‘though another “layer” was needed to keep warm.

Our pre-lunch assembling was great fun – catching up with old friends and meeting new – set the scene for a very convivial lunch! Groupings already established, order of play agreed and away to go from 2.30p.m.

An excellent turn-out of 28 players took to the sward, among whom and to enable the Club’s rule regarding Members and guests ratio to be observed, three R.P. Members very nobly agreed to be Hon. O.B.’s for the day (there was a fourth non-O.B.- Dylan Raw-Rees is actually an O.Ll. who – again nobly – stood in for his cousin Llyr who had to drop out at the last minute!)

Our line-up was:- Jonathan Arter, Gareth Griffiths, (Hon.O.B.) Robert Hughes, Peter Owen, Kevin Noble, Andrew Lewis, Mark Wison and Dylan Kelly.

Charles Spencer, Michael Muir, Roger Tamplin, Gwyn Jones, Jonathan Spencer, Michael Shellard, Tim Wynne-Jones and Ryan Davies.

Ross Owen, Howard Rees (Hon.O.B.) John Sant (Hon.O.B.) Thomas Atkin, George Lee and Stephen Falck.

Russell Davies, Charles Raw-Rees, Duncan Jones, Robert Calcaterra, Dylan Raw-Rees(Hon.O.B.) and Edward Jones

4 – Ball golf inevitably takes about four and a half hours, so by the time the last group finished, re-hydration in the bar was much needed!

There was a lot of excellent golf, reflected in the completed cards – the top scores were:

Equal third –

{Howard Rees & George Lee – 36 points

{Michael Muir & Michael Shellard – 36 points

Second – Ross Owen & Tom Atkin – 37 points

And by a convincing margin, the Winners – Duncan & Edward Jones – 41 points

Many thanks for your support in making this such an enjoyable event; hopefully we will do it again next year. The next OB Golf will be on 11th June when the Heads Cup will be held at Cradoc.
