2012 The 5th Big Event
7-May-2012
The 5th Almost becoming a tradition, we went south of the border to Belgium for our Big Event at Flanders Nippon in Hasselt. The only thing that cannot be planned is the weather, and the entire week before the Big Event there was rain pouring down from the skies. As the saying goes, you get what you deserve: on Saturday morning we were surprised by fair weather and even a little sunshine! At 9 o’clock we assembled for coffee, cake and a short briefing, before the 22 teams could take off from 10 o’clock onwards.

We had a Longest drive for men and women separately, on hole 5, but it proved little challenge as Martyn Coogans hit it a mile in the first flight. Just a few meters more and he would have hit it in the rough, which of course none of us was hoping for :-) . For the ladies there was more challenge with Yvette Doesburg hitting the first longest drive, but was outdriven by her mother Marian Doesburg*

The nearest on hole 16 was a lot tougher than on paper, as it played a lot longer than the 132 meters from the men’s tee box. Henk Teesink showed us how to place the ball within a few meters from the cup, and his effort was rewarded with a nice birdie!

Those who came in early had the opportunity to enjoy rich Belgian beer from the tap, while discussing the (many) successes and the (few) missed opportunities. The Texas scramble format proved to be a very enjoyable format, as players from all handicap levels could compete, with the higher chance of having at least one good lie to aim for a good score.

As for the challenge, stableford scores ranged from 17 points to 43 points for the winner:

1stMartyn Coogans and Jerome Pegard43 points (70 strokes with 4 strokes received)
2ndJK Hong and Jaegu Ryu42 points (82 strokes with 18 strokes received)
3rdJoris Welten and Jelle Simons41 points (75 strokes with 8 strokes received)

After the prize ceremony, dinner was served with a big Barbecue buffet. 18 holes can make you hungry, and big portions of meat & salmon proved to be exactly the cure for this.

We look back to a great Big Event, and hope that this is the starting point for many of you to start the golf season together with your fellow members from the blue marker. The summer evening challenge has started, and you can still participate in our by-weekly challenges. Subscribe in our ‘events’ section.

Thank you for your help in making this an enjoyable day. For those who could not come, we hope to see you with our next Big Event!

Marc Peels goodbye summer challenge
30-june-2011
Last thursday 30-june we had our summer golf challenge. The weather was a bit cloudy with sunny breaks which made it perfect golf weather. The tee-off of the first flight was at 17:30.

While several were enjoying some drinks after their run Marc and his flight joined at a few minutes past eight. After catching up Jelle gave a speech to thank Marc for starting the GCTBM and being the chairman for five years. Of course with the verbal thanks there were some gifts (a green fee, a trophy and special titleist NXT golf balls).

At his turn Marc thanked the GCTBM board and the members. He saw the club from being a starting event with just a few people doing golf challenges and par courses grew till now having 153 members. After the speeches we joined Marc for a nice dinner at the Gendersteyn golf course to call it a day.
