Members Meeting - Burstwick Country Golf - 19th August 2021

Our last Members Meeting of the season took place at Burstwick Golf & Country Club. We are immensely grateful to Alan Key and his staff for hosting the event at short notice when we lost our original venue.


The 164 ER Members taking part were well ‘fed & watered’ by Alan’s accommodating team of bar and catering staff and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves both on and off the course. Steve Thornton once again did sterling work on the registration desk ably supported by John Illingworth when he wasn’t enjoying himself on the course, which was in excellent condition. Most players however were wondering if we had upset whoever had set the pin positions and he’d taken somewhat harsh revenge (certainly I’ve never had a 3ft put finish 20ft away at right angles before!). 

Position Team Members (Club) Score
1st D. Parrott & D. Olsen (Scarborough NC) 49 points
2nd S. Whiting & R. Wicks (Burstwick) 48 points
3rd D. Pinder & R. Dannatt (Cottingham) 47 points
4th J. Illingworth & C. Hyam (Cave Castle) 46 points
5th B. Muir & T. Fox (Driffield) 45 points (Bk9)
6th M. Bird & P. Jenkinson (Cottingham) 45 points (Bk3)
7th J Baron & N Taylor (Hessle) 45 points (Bk3)

As this is the last Meeting of the season we’ll get the prize vouchers to all winners one way or another by next week.


My thanks to everyone who has given such tremendous support to the Members Meetings this year. In all, 1164 rounds of golf have been completed.  NEXT SEASON’S Members Meetings details and schedule will be circulated shortly giving Members the opportunity to prebook as usual.

Members Meeting - Flamborough Golf Club - 5th August 2021

An East Riding Union event at Flamborough was well overdue and therefore we were delighted that the weather held to make it yet another success in our season of Members Meetings. There were 184 players welcomed to the Club by our hosts - the hospitality of officials and staff, and forbearance of their regular Members, was much appreciated, together with the course which had been prepared to a very enjoyable standard.


Thanks also to the ever supportive Steve Thornton and our Union Secretary John Illingworth who manned the desk from dawn ‘til dusk on this occasion.

1st S. Wilcock, N. Coates, L. Drury & A. Kendrew 88 points

Members Meeting - Hull Golf Club - 8th July 2021

The sun shone down on surroundings which reflected the major effort put in by Aaron Pheasant and his team both on and off the course after the torrential rain experienced earlier in the week. Dave and Peter directed car-parking, Hadyn, Graham and Keith (Sam) ensured everyone was briefed on the first tee, and the immaculately turned out Steve and Ben manned the Proshop and created and maintained the live leader board. And everyone was well ‘fed & watered’ by Emily’s bar and catering team on the terrace well into the evening.

As usual, Steve Thornton manned the Registration Desk from ‘dawn ‘til dusk’ but this time, unfortunately, he had to deal with the problem of bad mobile signal and wifi reception which stopped us taking card payments on our mobile terminal. Thank you to everyone for adapting to the alternative cash and bar-terminal arrangements.


Finally, we are immensely grateful to all the Clubs who host these events and the understanding of their Members who often have to forego their regular Thursday activities.


A very welcome 45 teams supported the event between 8am and 4pm – perhaps surprising given the number of sore heads around after the England/Denmark match the night before!


The Prize Winners were as follows:-

Position Team Members (Club) Score
1st Chris Clarkson, Steve Mews, Dennis Thornham, Paul Kaye 85 points
2nd Darren Grice, Mark Rosenbroek, Graham Fisher, Ben Tarbotton 82 points (Bk9)
3rd Mike Allan, Richard Craven, Steve Thompson, Bram Tunbridge 82 points (Bk3)
4th Mike Allan, Richard Craven, Steve Thompson, Bram Tunbridge 82 points (Bk3)
5th Trevor Redmore, Josh Hairsine, Wayne Douglas, Mike Cross 81 points (Bk3)
6th S Lidgett, Lee Sunshine, Rob Taylor, Grahame Bullock 81 points (Bk3)

Prize Vouchers will be available for collection at our next Meeting at Flamborough on the Thursday 5th August.


The average score was a relatively low 76 off the Yellow tees with the course playing ‘long’ after the heavy rain. Only 13 gross 2s were recorded out of the 720 par 3s played. Just 4 7-pointers,and 75 6-pointers were recorded in the 3,240 holes played. No team failed to score on any hole although 4 1-pointers were recorded.


Thank you once again for your support and we look forward to seeing most of you again at Flamborough on the 5th August.
