The Lyme Regis June medal Division One saw a mixture of young and not so young (!) break nett par, writes Richard Jackman.

George Yorke won outright with net 68 from David Lyon on countback from Geoff Moss, both net 70.

Division Two saw the two best scores of the day as Dave Jones just beat Paul Hampton on countback both with 67 and Paul Millard took third place with 69.

The seniors beat the rain to compete in the Ted Ray Putter competition - the first three all scored 35 points, but countback decided that Jim Kerr, Peter Cogan and Steve Percival finished first, second and third respectively.

A masterful performance by Colin Baker won him the midweek stableford with 39 points from the ever present George Seed, 37 points, with Lewis Gibbons third on 36. The excellent green staff team had their morning pleasantly disturbed as the ladies held their Midsummer Madness cross country 11 holes competition starting at 6.30am!

This year saw a good turnout playing the holes from different approaches on what was one of the loveliest mornings of the year.

Jane Dixon won the event from Ros Cox, but the winners were all those who played joining in the fun.
