NGS October 2014 Outing Report – Whetstone

A very windy but mostly dry day for the NGS visit to Whetstone. Being the last singles competition of the year, it was all to play for in the Order of Merit. This led to myself, Martin and Danny (as the 3 contenders) , being lined up together in the first group. None of us won the day, but congratulations to Martin whose 3rd place sealed the Order of Merit. Also, congratulations to Roly, who won with the only positive score in the Bogey Competition.

NGS September 2014 Outing Report – Overstone Park

As always, a great trip over to Overstone Park. Congratulations to Lee for coming first with 37points. I played better on this outing, but still had time to take another photo along the way.

NGS August 2014 Outing Report – Heythrop Park

A stronger field of 19 players for the society’s first outing to Heythrop Park. A stunning setting for a tough and very long golf course. Next time, I’m going to get a buggy! Unfortunately, my golf wasn’t up to much on the day, but it gave me more opportunity taking photos of the course! Congratulations to Rob, who seems to be getting on with his new clubs.

NGS June 2014 Captain’s Charity Day

A big thank you to everyone who attended the Captain’s Charity Day on the 17th June.
The weather was great, the turnout was strong, even the golf wasn’t bad! (Ed – 2nd place!)
The golf was followed with a evening meal back at the Green Man in Long Itchington.
Then it was time for the auction and raffle which were both very well supported.
The final money raising total for the day is still being determined, but at the moment it stands at around £2,700 which is a fantastic achievement.
Once again, on behalf of the Captain, the committee and the Children’s Air Ambulance, a very big thank you to all involved on the day.

NGS 2014 Weekend Away Report

My report on the Weekend Away to Belton Woods has to start with a public apology.
Sorry for being boring and winning a considerable amount of the prizes on offer over the weekend.The Green Man “Gang” got their own back on me.By the time I got down there on Monday night, they had run up a £50 bar tab in my name!
An excellent weekend away. We were very lucky with the weather. The two courses and the hotel were excellent. The biggest issue was the long walk to the rooms some of us had.The bar is really well positioned right behind the 18th of the Lakes course. There was even a squirrel stealing from the golf bags to entertain us.

The “Sunny Sunday” brought out some rather colourful outfits. The best of which can be seen in the link on the right.

NGS 2013 Awards Night

2011 Captains Page

I would like to welcome members new and old (and older!) to a new season with the Napton Golf Society.

It is an honour to be this year’s Captain and I am pleased to have A.J. Newman as my Vice Captain. I’m sure he will be a great help to me as he is never short of advice!

I would like to give a big “thank you” to last year’s captain Lee Pollard, I know he worked tirelessly for his chosen charity and the society. Those thanks are also extended to the committee who have again done a fantastic job.

My chosen charity for 2011 is… The Afghanistan Trust.

This is a relatively small charity supporting soldiers and families of the Parachute Regiment in Afghanistan. Everyone reads of the horrors that these brave soldiers endure on almost a daily basis, ad this is a great opportunity for us all to show them our appreciation.

On the course I wish you all a “Doss Bounce”!


Have a great 2011

Rob Wigley
