There were also several withdrawals ahead of the Friday Stableford and Eclectic last week, but still nearly 60 seniors took on the course, writes John Pawley.

Whilst windy, the conditions were good and, whilst the first few scores to come in were on the low side, the members who made up the back of the field eventually hit results that were very respectable.

Stories of balls, hit off the tee going into temporary green holes, balls hitting other balls into bunkers etc, were pedalled around the clubhouse as members entered their scores into the computer.

Division Two was won by Alex Neil with 39 points, earning him a handicap cut. He was followed by Nick Mitchell on 33 points, now getting to know the course from his Padbrook days.

He was ahead, on countback, of Peter Blake, Steve Blundell and Bob Cleal. Division One was won by Steve Butcher who also achieved 39 points - and now plays off a handicap of seven.
