Having become accustomed to the mild climate in the past weeks, the cold, windy weather was something of a shock.

It was, however, to the liking of Mike Watts, who finished with a net 66 in Division 1 to take the first prize and glass jug.

He was also rewarded with two shots removed from his handicap.

Second was John Egerton who, at over 80 years of age, put many younger members to shame with a net 68, playing off a handicap of 15.

Third was Angus Falconer with the lowest gross score of the day and a net 69, followed by new vice- captain Bill Nicholls with a nifty 70 and Geoff Filtness on 71.

In Division 2, Don Leach took the honours on countback with a net 70 followed by John Foster, John Rawlings on 72 and Bob Milton and Ron Moss both on 73.

Ladies Section:

ON Wednesday, the Ladies played a Shotgun start 18 holes Bowmaker competition for Children in Need.

Most of the entry fee was donated and a raffle was organised which, together, raised £180 for the charity.

Only one prize was given and this was won by Lady vice-captain Elizabeth Ward, past Lady Captain Olive Pope and Majsan Stroud with a score of 75 points.

Mixed Golf:

The monthly Mixed Greensomes, playing for the goblets, drawn for partners, was played in beautiful autumn sunshine on Tuesday.

The winners of the goblets this month, with 35 points, were Andrea and Stan Squire.

Second place went to Rosemary Whiteley and John Frith 33 points.

Third place was gained by Jane Watts and Paul Ritchie 32 points.

Fourth were Elizabeth Ward and Mike Watts, 30 points on come-back.
