Pleasington Golf Club Results – 17th May 2023

Sandiway overcast day - waiting for rain to pass


The day was kindly sponsored by Chris Hodson of Balbis Consultancy Ltd . Chris has been with GBT since the early days. He is a popular and well-liked member, and we will always be grateful for his support and friendship. Thank you Chris.


Another fantastic day of Golf and Business Together!

So, Pleasington golf course is regarded as one of the best inland golf courses in Lancashire & the North of England.

With a traditional heathland golf course feel to it, the course has recently gone through a £1 million refurbishment. With the help of our own Ken Moody, of Creative Golf Design.

Ken was kind enough to share some tips on how to play the 6th hole. But it still proved to be a challenge for our members and guests, and even for Ken himself.

In fact, the whole course had so much to offer in the way of testing our players’ golfing skills. And it was certainly tough scoring.

Luckily, it was lovely and warm. It stayed dry and mostly sunny. Perfect golf weather.

Here are some scoring stats for the day:

 • Highest score 39pts

 • Lowest score 16pts• Average 29.6pts 

 • Ken’s 6th hole – Par 4 – 296 yds – stroke 17 

 • 2 birdies, 8 par’s, 15 bogeys, 6 D bogies & 3 worse. 



Winner:  Steve Critchley (SC Investments) – 39Pts

A very strong round of golf by Steve.

A beaten finalist in 2021 I’m sure Steve will be wanting to go one better this year.

Steve is now away for 10 days on his 60th birthday golf trip to Pebble Beach, enjoy and make sure you take plenty balls.

Congratulations and well played Steve!

Runner-Up: Simon Whittle (Westgrove Group) – 38 Pts

Simon is in a rich vein of form at the moment and I think I could safely say he’s having his best year on the GBT Tour.

Carry on like you are Simon and I think a first trip to the finals will be on the cards.

Well played and congratulations, Si !

Third Place: Mike Pich (The Layout Pad) – 37 Pts

Yet another podium finish for the 2021 GBT Champion.

Solid golf again from Mike and his competitive style of play will push him on his quest to be a GBT double Champ!

Well done and congratulations Mike!

Ladies Prize Winner: Karen Payne – 32pts

A super score for Karen helped her pip her playing partners to the Ladies winning prize.

I think she did have the edge over her fellow competitors as she had played at Pleasington on the Sunday before, practise makes perfect!

Well Played Karen!

Guest Winner: Graham Roche – 38 Pts

We look forward to seeing more of Graham this season.

Great round Graham!
