Denbigh and Ruthin & Pwllglas Club Golf Action
THE Match and Handicap Chairman, who is a volunteer position, does an amazing job at Denbigh Golf Club.
Don Walmsley, a retired naval engineer, oversees more competitions than any other club in the region.
Besides being a competitor, he produces all the results in the most efficient way, organizes the knockout competitions and answers a series of rules questions that arise regularly.
There are undoubtedly a host of other unsung heroes among the City’s club and amateur sport spectrum and competitors are always, regardless of club, indebted and grateful for their hard work and help.
Arwel Wyn Jones won the second monthly medal competition of the year with a clean round of 65, one stroke ahead of Kyle Morris and Geraint Williams, first and second in the bronze division.
Peris Jones, another shot back, topped the Silver Division, ahead of Darren Foulkes (68 net).
