The Unicorn Golf Society (TUGS) The Unicorn has its own golf society (TUGS), drawn from an eclectic bunch of regular and occasional Patrons. You are warmly invited to join TUGS and please don’t worry, any standard of golfing prowess is welcome – there is no fee to join. Just as we receive great local support at The Unicorn, we like to support local courses, so all 4 meetings each year, are at local clubs.

The format is always individual stableford (full handicap, max 24 for men and 36 for ladies) and Members will compete for the TUGS trophy at each meeting. There will be a special prize for the person who has accumulated the highest aggregate of stableford points (best 3 rounds out of 4) which will be awarded after the final meeting of the year.

TUGS 2017

 

The final TUGS meeting of the 2017 season was held at Three Locks GC

And so we came to the final meeting of 2017 with realistically only 3 people who could catch Gary Brazier for the 2017 TUGS Champion Golfer title.  To topple Gary, one of Pete Lucas, Roger Dimmock or Steve George had to shoot a seriously good score. With overnight rain and damp conditions, the 3-Locks course was playing long and it just didn’t happen. In fact it didn’t happen for any of the 22 members who turned out and enjoyed this challenging course. The winner on the day (on countback from Jean Barnett) was Steve George with just 30 pts. Steve remarked that he had never before won a competition with a score which would lead to his handicap going up!

But overall, its hats off to Gary Brazier who put together the 3 best rounds of 2017 and deservedly wins the TUGS Champion Golfer title for 2017….. and who will be cut to 18 for 2018!
