Another Win for Hawkstone - this time away from home

Playing at Upton-by- Chester on 01 September Stuart Smith and Alan Molyneux scored a superb 47 points to clinch victory on a card play-off from a pairing from Portal.

Stuart started the challenge with 6 points in the first three holes followed by Alan counting on six consecutive holes from 4 through to 9 to give them 21 points to the turn. Stuart then played superb golf for the next seven holes before Alan finished the round scoring 5 points on the last two holes to clinch the narrowest of victories. Very well done both!

Another Home Win for HPGC!

For the second time in two months home players have prevailed in the C&BGA on the Hawkstone course the subtleties of which do need some local knowledge.

On 28 July Stephen Saunders and Bob Parker posted an impressive 49 points in the fourball better-ball format to claim victory by 4 shots over a field of 148 players. The pair played almost perfect pairs golf but Bob, in particular, used his shots skilfully. Very well done both!

Meanwhile, at Holywell on 14 July Kevan McGrail and Dave Robson posted 45 points for third place, just 2 points off the winning score.


After what can be described only as a “slow start” to the Spring season, the Hawkstone pair of in form Mark Woosnam and debutant Stuart Smith shot a super 50 points to win the event on 02 June by the astonishing margin of 6 points. But the highlight of the day was Stuart’s hole in one on the 12th Moat Hole - the first ace in an Alliance event since Alan Molyneux’s at Royal St. David’s in 2019.

Stuart’s ace, the 4th of his golfing career, was made with a 9 iron and the first he has actually seen drop into the hole!

Lawrence Ellerby & Robin Mackness scored 42 points for a 6th place mention.
