Wednesday Stableford
The mid-week Stableford competitions have returned this past week, which means the golf season has well and truly arrived. This also has seen the return of some cold, wet and windy golfing conditions. Although the course has seen some beautiful weather lately, it certainly does need a drop a rain.With the weather turning scoring proved a little difficult, as the results suggest. George Robinsontook 1st place in Division 1 with 36 points. In 2nd, with 35 points, was John Cossey and completing Division 1 in 3rd place was Ryan Mapp with 33 points.Division 2 was won with the best score of the day. Chris Harris-Deans, who was played in the same group as both George and Ryan, scored a fantastic 40 points to take 1st place. Phil Sudworth was 2 points behind with 38 and in 3rd place in Division 2 was Pepe Luxa with 36 points.

It was a tight affair in Division 3 for 1st place, with both Alex Boulton and John Toy scoring 36 points, the former taking the spoils on countback. Completing the prizes was a new member, John Spiller, with 33 points.

Monthly Stableford
The second of 3 stableford competitions in less than a week was played on Saturday, and with favourable conditions the scoring was some of the best we have seen so far this season. Division 1 was won with 40 points, with both Stuart Jose and Alex Worthington setting the standard; Stuart nicked 1st place on countback. In 3rd place was Mike Gorman with a respectable 37 points.

Division 2 has seen some high scoring in recent weeks, and there was no change this weekend. Winning with a fantastic score of 44 points was Michael Fox. In second place, and with a score worthy of winning in any other week, was Jack Pope with 43 points. Jack has now reduced his handicap from 12 to 8 so far this season. In 3rd place, with a fine score of 41 points, was Peter Scully.

Division 3 saw a slightly larger winning margin. Steven Knight took 1st place with 41 points, 4 clear from Maurice Salzmann, in second. Completing the prizes was Terry Hannaford in 3rd with 36 points.

Well done to all.
