Seniors Open - Wednesday 2nd September 2020

*Event Abandoned due to Weather* 

Due to the Extremely inclement weather for our Seniors Open on Wednesday unfortunately we had to call the event off as the course started to flood in the afternoon.
We managed to get 60+ golfers in by the time the rain hit but unfortunately the afternoon players suffered the worse conditions. As a gesture of goodwill, we would like to offer a reduced entry fee of £10.00 to all the affected players to attend either of our 2021 seniors open next year in June and September. Entry for all affected Golfers must be booked via the secretary’s office via email on secretary@helsbygolfclub.org as this offer will not be available online.  We will also be increasing the Prize fees for next year and anyone affected who was in the 2,s sweep will get free entry as well.
I am sure your all aware that it was a difficult but the right decision to halt play at the point we did which in essence rendered the competition void. We hope this will not deter anyone from attending our events in the future.

Helsby Oaks - Sun 1st Oct 2017- Results

A big thank you to all the members/visitors who played in this years Helsby Oaks competition. The format changed this year to an 18 hole competition with gross & nett prizes rather than a 36 hole scratch competition; the trophy this year going to the player with the lowest 18 hole gross. This years competition saw Steve Roberts posting an impressive 71 gross under testing conditions with the course playing its full length. Jon Sharpe, Simon Pay and Denver Brazier were 2nd, 3rd, 4th respectively, all on 75 gross (card play offs).

Jeff Scudder took home first place in the nett competition with an outstanding 65, closely followed by good showings from Adam Griffiths (67) and Mal Aird & Andy Sayers (68). John Cheesbrough also scored 68 but narrowly missed out on 4th place in a card play off.
