Week-end Away at Cave Castle

48 members and friends of Pennington Golf Club enjoyed a fantastic week-end away at Cave Castle Hotel and Golf Club during the week-end of September 4th to 6th.  Although the weather was a little mixed with some cool mornings and warm afternoons there was little rain to upset the golfers.  The non-golfers enjoyed days out at Hull and York races.  The main trophies were won by Carolyn Smith and Allen Lee with Allen taking the overall Carole Taylor Trophy for the combined scores for Saturday’s and Sunday’s competitions.

As usual at Cave Castle we were very well looked after with our special thanks to Jane Simpson, for her help with the organisation and to Andy, Stephen and the staff in the Clubhouse, and to all the Hotel staff for the service and wonderful food.  Thanks also to Steve in the Pro-shop for his help with the ‘buggy’ situation!


Pennington Golf Club scored a 3 points to 2 victory over Haigh Hall Golf Club in the annual Metro Shield Competition, held at Pennington on Saturday 19th September.  The competition was played this year on a 4BBB Stableford Matchplay format.  Pennington regained the Trophy after it had spent several years in the hands of Haigh Hall.

Congratulations and well played to the Pennington Team.  Next years Competition will be played at Haigh Hall.
