THE busy day of cup finals at Wenvoe Castle was brought to a successful conclusion except for one match which had to be held over to the following week as one of the finalists had reached another final.

Lucy Sellick won the Ladies Championship the previous week and with partner, Lynda Campbell, hoped to add another trophy by winning the White Cup Foursomes against Sue Dayananda and Lynda Hudd.

However it was not to be as their opponents proved to be too strong on the day and Sue and Lynda built up a commanding lead and despite efforts to claw back the deficit over the back nine holes the match finished on the 15th hole and a winning margin of 4&3.

Lady captain Lynda Lee refereed the match and congratulated the winners and complimented both pairs on a match played in great spirit and an excellent sporting manner.

The Ladies Section took part in the Thomson Salver which is a challenging ‘bogey’ competition where essentially the player is playing match play against par on every hole and the lost holes are deducted from the won holes to give a final score.

Jane Lott played consistently well winning as many holes as those lost and a final result of ‘0’ and ahead of Jane Barrell with ‘-3’ and Sue Dayananda with ‘-4’.

The Ladies also played in the Ladies Spirits Competition@ which proved to be an extremely close result with four players recording 29 points and two players on 28 points.

Count back went into overdrive to calculate that Carolyn McKenzie was the winner and just ahead of Barbara Beedham by the narrowest of margins.

The Presidents Bowl is a stableford for both the men and ladies and Glyn Evans posted the top score of 36 points and will be delighted to see his name in gold leaf on the honours board.

Kevin Knowles just missed out by a single point and the inform Tim Dimond in third place with 34 points.

Jane Lott recorded the highest Ladies score of 31 points.

It has also been a busy period for men’s competitions and Pat Regan produced a sparkling round of golf to score 43 points in the Pro Shop Stableford.

The round was quite remarkable with an eagle, five birdies and seven pars.

Runner-up Kevin Knowles also rattled up thirteen pars and a birdie but just missed out with 40 points.

The September Medal produced another very tight finish with three players recording a net 71.

Once again count back had to be used to produce a winner and Glyn Jones just got home against John Myhre with David Bracey in third place.

John can look at his very strong finish with pars at the two finishing holes as the reason for his success.
