Another Great Success Pontardawe Golf Club 2014 Presentation Evening

Friday 30th of January 2015 21:56
Steffan Rowe Club Champion 2014

Pontardawe Golf Club presentation evening saw the lounge and bar packed to capacity for the most prestigious event in the golfing calendar.

Steffan Rowe won the 2014 Club Championship and was a very popular, worthy winner, out playing all who entered. Steffan was extremely proud to be crowned Club Champion and see his name join his father's on the club champions board. Anne Evans was the well deserved winner of the Ladies club championship, nett and gross competitions. Jac Rogers was the winner of the Junior boys club championship while his sister Lauren Rogers took the Junior girls club championship. Most improved lady golfer of the year went to Victoria Evans and deservedly so. Victoria had a great season, which showed in her competition results which is reflected in her handicap being significantly reduced.

Congratulations to all who entered club competitions throughout the 2014 season and in particular to those individuals and teams that were successful in posting some great scores which led to them being presented with some stunning cut glass trophies and plaques.

The stars of the show were undoubtedly the juniors who are the future of the club. They not only received trophies for their individual club competition achievements, but successfully represented Pontardawe Golf Club in numerous team and individual competitions at various levels throughout the country. A Special mention to juniors Jac Rogers and Dylan Thomas who have been selected for the Golfing Union of Wales South West Academy Squad. They are an absolute tribute to the club and to say we have some potential golf superstars would be an understatement. Well done to all the juniors !

The evening was extremely well supported by all sections of the club, with Male, Lady and Junior sections all strengthening during the course of the 2014 season and producing high entry numbers in all club competitions. The standard of golf was exceptionally high in all competitions and was reflected in some terrific competition scores posted.

The presentations were made by the Club President Alun Evans and the 2014 Lady Captain Anwen Davies assisted by 2015 club captain Meirion Davies and handicap secretary Viv Jones.

The 2015 club captain Merion Davies closed the evening by not only thanking everybody present at the evening for their support, but to the whole of the club membership for their support and participation in the seasons club competitions.

It only remains to thank the team that made all this great golf possible, Jamie Probert and his ground staff team. They worked tirelessly to provide Pontardawe Golf Club with one of the finest courses in South Wales. The immaculate manicuring and setting up of the course provided some of the most enjoyable challenging golf you could ever ask for.
