Division 1 winner was Anne Humphreys with a net score of 71. Second place went to Jennifer Pollard with net 73. And in third place was the ever steady Diana Dick with a net 74.

Division 2 was won by Barbara Porter with a fantastic net 66.

She found herself seven shots clear at the top with second place going to the rapidly improving Lesley Jelleyman with a net 73.

Third place went to Margaret Slater with a net 74.

Division 3 was won by Glenys Phillips with a net score of 71. Margaret Bettes was second with net 72. And completing the top three was Faye Seed with net 76.

Well done to all the ladies on a fantastic competition - especially Barbara who has had her handicap cut three shots to 21!

Junior Stableford: David Lyon was, unfortunately, missing from last week's order of Merit line-up due to an injury but has come back and, once again, shown he has the makings of a fantastic player, scoring 42 points and reducing his handicap to 21.

Joe Spiers made an overdue arrival into the prizes, scoring 39 points and also reducing his handicap by a shot.

The ever-steady George Seed's handicap just keeps falling and 39 points saw him in third place and losing yet another shot. Well done guys - keep up all the hard work and practice.

Men's Competition Rover Cup: A perfectly still and sunny morning greeted the players who turned up on Sunday for the Annual Rover Cup.

The course looked great and the scores reflected it.

J Perryman was the eventual winner with a fantastic score of 45.

He was one of the last to come off the course late into the evening, beating the morning leader G Patterson by three points.

Second also went to a late score, W J Harris, who narrowly missed out with 44 points.

S Montgomery was third with 41 points.

The scoring was fantastic, with 35 players either scoring level their handicap or beating it.
