Mark Scott was in no mood for compromise as he started his round with a three point par, ended with a three point birdie and in between scored very well, including a four pointer on the 14th as he won Division One of the November stableford with 40 points, writes Richard Jackman.

Phil Webb was also in fine form as he began with five pars and scored on every hole to come second on 39 points.

New club president David Lock is also getting back into form as he notched up 38 points to finish third, his highlights being two four-point birdies on each nine.

Tony Harley is scoring exceptionally well at the moment and it was no surprise that his two nines of 20 points was more than enough to win Division Two as he comfortably birdied 14 and then recorded par on 15 and 16 to ease home with 40 points.

James Turner and Steve Piper had an interesting battle for second place as Turner raced out with 24 points on the front nine only to implode on the back nine, while Piper started modestly and came in strongly on the back nine with 20 points, but Piper’s 36 points was just one shy of second placed Turner.

Division One of the ladies’ turkey trot was a keenly fought affair as both Di Harris and Jean Jolley came in with 32 points, but Harris galloped in on a back nine 17 points, including three, three-point holes, while Jolley could only muster a canter to come a worthy second.

Jane Dixon did enough to finish third on 28 points.

The star score of the round belonged to Division Two winner Sandra Barclay, who started with a competitive but inconsistent front nine before steadying her game to finish with the best score of the day of 37 points.

Sarah Kilcoyne is playing some improving golf as her handicap continues to tumble, and this was no exception as she cranked up her back nine to finish on 35 points.

Amy Mudford did the reverse and after a promising front nine just fell away to finish third on 31 points.
