Linksnet held their second Network Day of the season at Hollinwell this week. One of the finest courses in the UK was in superb condition and with perfect weather conditions, it proved to be another memorable day for the online platform’s members.
With so much to play for this summer at every Network Day and in the overall Order of Merit as well the online leaderboard competitions, the day proved a fun but competitive affair with some new names rising to the top. The day also marked Linksnet’s support for Ukraine as members were encouraged to wear blue and yellow and enter the charity raffle.
There were some superb colour combinations out on the course but there could only be two winners of the best dressed competition! First up was Peter Carter-Brown sporting a yellow cap, yellow belt, yellow/blue wrist band and blue shoes with yellow laces! Then we also had George Copley who braved a chilly wind early on with his blue shorts and Ukraine shirt. An incredible £1400 was raised for Golfers for Ukraine which was a great effort.
As well as some excellent fashion out on the course there was also some excellent golf being played! The Team Stableford winners were Dave Cooksley, Peter Carter-Brown, Terry Woods and Gary Ribeiro who scored an excellent 83 points to win a dozen Titleist Pro V1 balls each.

In the Individual Stableford, it proved a very close affair with four players tied on 35 points, and two players who could hardly be separated. Third and second place forced a recheck of the rules of golf, as both players were tied on a countback on the back 9, 6, 3 and final hole! Placing is then decided by the matchplay result between the two players after three holes.
In third place was Simon Ford playing his first Linksnet day. Simon won a pair of Skechers shoes. The runner up was Carl Greenwood who won a two ball voucher to a future Linksnet day.
The overall winner however was another debutant, Gary Ribeiro, who made the three hour trek from Northumberland to Hollinwell on his birthday but what a birthday it proved to be as he shot a superb 38 points to win a £250 voucher from Stewart Golf.
