East Riding Presidents AMAM at a sunny Filey GC

Presidents Am-Am at Filey Golf Club


What a day the weather forecast was to be wet, windy, and overcast. However, on arriving at Filey G.C. the players (132) found blue skies, a gentle breeze and no rain until the last players were on 17th.

The course was a pleasure to play with the green staff having worked hard to ensure it was in top condition, with lush fairways and excellent greens. The welcome in the club house was warm with the day all set out and explained in full to each team. 

A Team Am-Am Stableford with nearest pins on all par 3’s and at Presidents request on the par 4 12th hole, (that of slopping green and tight pin back left-hand corner).

Early scores and comments suggested that the course was in excellent condition and scoring was not easy.

Later in the day the scores started to climb and by the end it was a 19 under par score of 99 which won the competition. 96pts and 95pts filled the remaining 4 places.

Nearest pins, all placed to ensure they were in view but not an easy option were all closely contested.

To finish the day was Filey Fish and Chips or a selection of meats on a carvery. Comments on the food supplied by Paul and his very friendly team were consistent in their praise.

To accompany the meal was a complimentary drink provided by the President.

All taking part were complimentary about the day.

My thanks to Filey Golf Club, the Green Staff, Paul and his team, bar staff, George in the shop, Roger, and Stuart for their support.

Finally, my thanks to all those players who attended it was a pleasure to welcome you to my home club and I look forward to seeing you again at Hornsea in 2024 with President Jonty Hall
