Belfairs played North Weald in the Lesley Wood Championship second round and the home side just claimed the spoils after a nailbiting battle with the visitors. The morning foursomes saw Belfairs just ahead at 3-2, but North Weald soon reduced the deficit in the afternoon singles and with the match tied at 7-7, the result was still in the balance until last man out, Alan Elliott, secured the win on the 18th green. Belfairs now play host to The Burstead in the last sixteen.
In the ladies section, Joan Howroyd carded a nett 80 to win the monthly medal closely pursued by Pam Hayhurst (80) in second and third placed Alex Meddle (80).
At Friday’s Committee Outing, Mark Duguid and Ian Mudie tied on 34 points with the former just shading it on countback to take the Gorse Bowl with Frank Howroyd (32) in third. The guest competition was won by Alex Tindell with an impressive 39 points from runner-up Nigel Warder (32).
