Tight finish to cold morning
PUBLISHED: 12:13 14 February 2012
It's Winter, what did you expect? Sunday's Stableford turn out was low, with names being crossed out as late as the morning of the event.
Admittedly it was freezing cold and members woke secretly hoping the course would be closed. However, the game was played and you can see from the results the calibre of player that forced their way into the rankings. First, and probably playing in shirt sleeves, was Paul Blackmore with 40pts. Second on countback with 39pts was Steve Charlton, ahead of a despairing Sid Martin in third (he thought his 39 would win it!). Poor Dave Morgan's 39pts just got him fourth. A tight finish to a very cold morning.
●Tuesday's Mixed Format was a Team Stableford with two scores on each hole to count. The winning team were new Lady Captain Jackie and Allan Seager, Maureen McIllvean and Andy Sharland with 80pts followed closely in second place by Linda and John Northover, Christine Whitley and Robert Hendrix with 79pts.
●Ladies’ Section - 32 ladies braved arctic conditions to play in a 10-hole rye foursomes on Wednesday and, when the icicles melted, it was Henrietta Bradshaw and Chris Pearce in first place with a great score of 22 points.
There was a rush for second, third and fourth places - all on 19 points and separated only on count back - Majson Stroud and Susan Hyde in second, Jan Dickinson and Di Wall in third place and Sue Ritchie and Diana Gee fourth.
