Read through the report below following the playing of the 1st Holtye Academy Cup, 22nd/23rd October 2023 with leading scores and reviews:

Following the aftermath of “Storm Babet” that brought with it torrential rain, it was relief that we were blessed with fantastic weather for first round of the inaugural playing of the Holtye Golf Academy Cup. Sixteen golfers, in five groups, teed off in the afternoon sunshine for round one of the two day event. Tournament host, Rupert Hunter, was on hand acting as official starter, course referee and scorecard marker!


Group 1 – Paul Petty, Bob Short, Mike Colenutt, Steve Halliday
Group 2 – Ian Burroughs, David Gregory, Roger Nunn
Group 3 – Grant Whiskin, Julian Price, Richard Landholt
Group 4 – Lesley Baughan, Juliet Downey, Nikki Pope
Group 5 – Jennie Collins, Jane Stacey, Matt Collins

Following the completion of the first day’s play, Jennie Collins held the lead with 42 points from a chasing pack that included David Gregory (40pts) Lesley Baughan (37pts) and Roger Nunn (36pts)

One of the highlights of a memorable day of golf had to be a brilliant Hole in One on the Par 3 10th hole (161 yards) at Delta Hotels by Marriott Tudor Park Country Club by Nikki Pope (pictured below)

Following a delicious, three course evening dinner and a hearty breakfast, play resumed the following day in slightly cooler, autumnal conditions but still extremely pleasant for the time of year.

It was a day of excellent scoring with 11 players returning cards of 30 stableford points or more. One such notable round was played by Paul Petty (Captain elect of Holtye Golf Club for 2024) who roared back into contention with a blistering back nine of 24 points!

But eventually it was Jennie Collins who prevailed and held on to be the overall winner of the inaugural Holtye Golf Academy Cup by backing up her impressive first round (42pts) with another superb round of golf with a second round of 41 points for a two round tally of 83 points.
