It was Founder’s Trophy Day for the seniors section last Friday at Axe Cliff, writes Janet Dack.
The competition involves medal play over the opening nine holes and stableford on the inward half.
The points gained on the back nine are then deducted from the first nine total and the winner, with an amazing low score of 10 was Chris Walker (14).
Second place with 13 was Alan Vincent (17) and third Geoff Hughes (15) with a score of 14.
There were no fewer than five two’s, from Sid Pember, Charles Whitbourn, Dave Weston, Geoff Hughes and Alan Vincent.
