Competitive golf returned after the New Year break as the January medals were contested over the weekend. Friday’s event saw Tony Ball (86-18=68) comfortably hold off the challenge of runner-up Ian Douglas (83-11=72) and Dave Watson third placed (94-18=72).
On Saturday, an outstanding round by Lawrence Schooley (79-17 = 62) resulted in a runaway win and a 1 shot handicap reduction. Ray Jones (84-16=68) was a distant second with Chris Shawyer (89-19=70) further back in third.
The milder conditions on Sunday produced further low scoring with the medal being decided on countback. First place went to Joan Smith (75-13=62), recording her second victory in as many months and relegating Mark Gopy (87-25=62) and David Bucke (87-24=63) to the minor places.
