The winner of division two was Robin Smith with a net 68, in second place was Roger Baker, also 68, and in third place was David Jones with 70.

In the Dorset County seniors championship, many congratulations to Lyme Regis’s David Lock who came runner up in the scratch competition and won the Handicap Championship.

Well done to Caroline Baker who won the Coronation Cup, a competition played by all male and female medal winners from the previous year.

In the junior order of merit competition Suzie Coalter scored a brilliant nett 61 and pushed James Phillips into second place with 69 from Cameron Moss on 71.
