With only a bit of wind to mar an otherwise perfect afternoon, it was a little surprising to have only twenty-one players enter Saturday’s Stableford round. Russell Purcell had a good day out, his 37 points good enough for the win, with John Greatorex on 34 taking the runner-up spot on a countback. Julie Lyon was the ladies winner with 36 points, well clear of runner-up Brenda Lopez on 30.
Russell also took Nearest the Pin on 2, Marg Fahey got 5, Richard Watson and Brenda Lopez both got a ball for the 7th, and Jack Naden took 12.
Simon Rouget and Dave Silverman made up the ball run down, Russell Purcell rounded out a good day with a win in the raffle, and Alan Kirkpatrick was the Entry winner.
Wednesday’s 4Ball was played to honour long time club member, Lena Hortin, and the luncheon after the game was attended by members of her family (see the photo on our Photos page).
Marg Fahey and Brenda Lopez were the winners with 47 points, with Deb Richardson and Anne Norris not far behind on 45. Deb and Anne were also the 9 hole winners with 24
Ruth Worland and Anne Gunton were Nearest the Pin on 2, and 18 went to Dawne Cann and Jenny Fisher.
Fourteen was the number of players competing in Tuesday’s Stableford round, as well as two youngsters putting in their cards. The winner, with 37 points, was Graeme Emmerson, three ahead of Dave Silverman, who came out on top of a 3 way countback for the runner-up spot.
Wayne Haggis only had a short chip for his second at 17, which netted him the only Nearest the Pin for the day, as nobody got on the 18th.
