Swingers experience their own Glorious Goodwood

The curtain finally closed on another successful season last week (12 Oct) with the final of Flying Club Swingers taking place at Golf at Goodwood in Chichester, West Sussex.

This picturesque and unique setting, up on the Sussex Downs, was a deserved treat for the 40 qualifiers who had fought for six long months to make it to this stage. With massages from the In Flight Beauty Therapists available before and after their rounds, together with a superb selection of food and drink, the scene was set for the season's finale, and a glorious day of Autumn sunshine only added to the occasion.

With challenging pin positions and super fast greens fit for a final, the Swingers were provided with a true test of their golfing skills. Scores were consistently low throughout the field, and in the Fun Swingers Final, one of the Season's most active Swingers, Paul Marsh, came out on top with 27pts beating Joel Woolrich who finished second with 25pts and Chris Wood in third place with 22pts.

In the Club Swingers Final, two of the top golfers at the Final shone through. Five handicapper and former Player of the Month, Joe Nixon pipped scratch golfer Janet Collingham on a back nine countback to claim the main prize. Both players finished with 30pts. In third place was John Robertson with 28pts.

As winners, Joe and Paul won a whole host of prizes including Premium Economy flights with Virgin Atlantic and some superb prizes from our sponsors.

This Season saw a separate competition for invited Flying Club Gold members run alongside the main final. Stephen Leedham took the honours with the best score of the day, 32pts, from Graham Pielow with 31pts.

Finally the Nearest the Pin competition was won by Fun Swinger Joel Woolrich and the Longest Drive by invited Gold member Craig Scott.

Already, plans are well under way for Season Four of Flying Club Swingers - a mammoth 11 month season which will span winter and summer testing your golf in all conditions. Once more there will be some great prizes up for grabs and a lavish end of season final to aim for in September.

Next season promises to be more competitive than ever before as the reputation of our golf league grows bigger and bigger.

Be sure to look out for news of our launch in November soon.
