There could only really be one charity to benefit from Seniors Captain John Parkinson’s year in office.

John has, of course, chosen Parkinson’s UK and with World Parkinson’s Day celebrated on April 11 each year, what better way to support it than by dedicating this month’s Seniors Stableford competition to it.

With blue being the colour adopted by the charity, John encouraged every one of the 70 players taking part to wear something blue, leading to a colourful procession round the Constable course.

And with everything in place – there could really only be one winner on the day, John Parkinson himself with 39 points to claim victory in Division 1.

Behind John in Division 1 were Ross Buchanan (36), Phil Boyland (35) and Tony Denmead (35).

Andy Wood won Division 2 with 38 points, second was John Jardine with 35, third was Richard Allen on 29 and fourth was Terry Mitchell on 29.

The twos pot winners were:
– Tony Carman – Hole 5
– Eric Fisher – Hole 8
– Mark Boyland – Hole 8
– Paul Shefield – Hole 13
– Phil Boyland – Hole 18

The winners of the Nearest the Pins were:
– Tony Denmead – Hole 5 (bottle of wine)
– Mark Boyland – Hole 8 (bottle of wine)
– Adrian Ault – Hole 13 (bottle of wine)

The winner of the Nearest the Pin in 2 on 18th was Phil Boyland – whose birdie prize pack included a pack of 3 balls, cap, tees, and pencil.

John said: “I would like to thank the Seniors for participating and making this a successful day of golf. Everyone’s efforts have also helped raise awareness and funds for Parkinson’s UK.”
