Playing on the 16-hole course in the February medal, Phil Webb romped home with two birdies and a string of good scores to win Division One with a nett 54, writes Richard Jackman.

James Lambert shot out of the blocks with three birdies in the first four holes, but pulled up on the closing holes. However, he still finished a comfortable second, with 56, while Chris Brice had a better second half to take third place on countback.

Division Two belonged to a very in-form Bob Shepherd as he played some steady, sensible golf to secure top spot with 54, two shots better than another in-form player, Steven Harlow, who beat Graham Paterson, also nett 56 on countback.

With a reduced field for the seniors’ stableford, Arthur Daines helped himself to three birdie twos on the way to his 38 points, to secure Division One, while Steve Harlow continued his rich run of form to improve his weekend position as he won Division Two with 37 points.

The ladies played a 16-hole stableford competition, and, with a run of five consecutive holes, scoring three points on each of them, Kim Beauchamp secured top spot in Division One with 33 points, closely followed by a par performance from Jane Dixon, while Jane Andrews took third with 27.

In Division Two, and picking up three four-points-a-hole scores, was Ronny Turner, who convincingly won with the best score of the day of 36 points. Both Judith Ellard and Sheila Claringbold continued their recent run of good form, both scoring an impressive 34 points to finish second and third respectively, on countback.
