On a glorious, sunny autumn day for the four-ball, better ball competition, Scott Love and Jon Ebdon really ‘made hay’, writes Richard Jackman.

Love and Ebdon, playing off handicaps of minus one and three respectively, came in with a winning score of 46 points, which included six gross birdies and a gross eagle.

This was a sensational score and set an excellent standard that father and son team of Ted and Mark Scott almost emulated with their 45 points as both waded in on their points blitz.

On many other days, Sean Whelan and Karl Hancock would have taken a higher place than third as they came in with a well-grafted 44 points.

The midweek stableford saw Alan Hill romp home with 41 points as he scored three pointers on seven holes to take top spot ahead of Keith Gibson and Robert Edmunds, who had a real tussle for second and third place, both with 38 points.

In the end it was Gibson’s par, birdie, birdie, finish that took silver. Jane Dixon started her round in the ladies’ stableford Division One exceptionally well as she was three shots up on par after seven holes, getting three points on three consecutive holes in a row.

Sadly, this run did not continue, but it did not matter as Dixon still won the competition with 35 points.

Second place was keenly contested as Anne Humphreys and Rosie Jackman both scored 34 points.

Humphreys is playing some wonderful golf recently and on countback took second place.

Division Two was even closer as there was a three-way tie on 31 points. New ladies’ captain Kathy Briggs had the best front nine with a storming 19 points.

Unfortunately, on countback, this meant third place, allowing Mary Minter’s two steadier nines to take top spot with some consistent golf, while the evergreen Sue Jupp took second place, with the second best back nine.
