90 Years Young
Vale of Llangollen golfers celebrate Nev Rawlcliffe’s Ninetieth Birthday
It still amazes many of us how well and often Nev plays at the Vale of Llangollen. His recent 90th birthday has done nothing to dampen his spirits! To celebrate, many of Nev’s friends played in a stableford and enjoyed some great comradeship.
Nearest the pin on 18th, beating Mr Captain by the closest of margins, was Steph Koscinski and with the only two of the day, President Ken Williams holed an eight iron on the par four second!
1st Robert Stewart 35 points
2nd Wyn Hughes 34
3rd Graham Pattinson 33
A sum of money in the entrance fee added a nicely to Nev’s Pro Shop account. It is well deserved as Nev has been a great supporter of The Club and still enjoys his golf with his friends. He had a nice collection of birthday cards to share with his wife Betty when he returned home!
Also celebrating, recently was Neil Branningan who holed his six iron tee shot on the fourteenth hole. This was his fifth hole in one!
