Archant

Seniors: With the ground still frozen underfoot, 57 stalwart members of the senior section took to the course to contest the monthly Stableford, writes Steve Percival.

With temporary greens on all of the holes and with a buggy ban in force, some of the regular participants were absent. However, apart from early short lived drizzle, the weather was mild. Approach shots and putting was a bit of a lottery, but some creditable scores were carded. Division One was won on countback by David Binns (14) with Frank Martin (12), both with 38 points. Third was Barry Goswell (16) with 37. In division two, Keith Glover (27) showed the benefit of his recent lesson from the club professional staff with a 38 points winning score. Second, with 36, was Alan Woodbridge (20) followed by D McCallum in third place.

Winter League Round 2

The second round of the Winter League saw the winning pair of Jonny Ebdon and Richard Lawrence scoring a magnificent 44 points! Coming a very close second was the steady pairing of Jim Matthews and Pete Northcott with 43 points and in third were Tom Glover, and Matt Coburn with 42 points. The table to dates stands as follows:

1, J Ebdon and R Lawrence 84; 2, T Glover AND M Coburn 81; 3, J Matthews and P Northcott 79.

Monthly medal

With frozen ground necessitating the use of 18 temporary greens many of the regular participants were not present to contest the monthly medal on Sunday. However, with temperatures warmer than of late and with very little wind blowing conditions were otherwise good for golf. Results were as follows:

1, with a net 68 P Beviss (6); 2, with net 69 M Lewis (11); 3, with net 70 David Binns (14)
