Belfairs played its bi-annual Rider Cup on Sunday when the men and ladies joined forces to make up two teams representing the Weekenders and Veterans. The format replicates its more well-known namesake and 68 players competed in fourballs, foursomes and singles matches. The final result was a 14 ½ - 7 ½ victory for the Weekenders to retain the trophy, but more importantly, it was yet another resounding success for one of the best days in the Belfairs calendar.
The monthly medals were contested over the previous weekend and it was the consistent Neil Arends with a very creditable nett 61 who comfortably won Friday’s event and incurred a 2 shot cut in handicap. Second was Bobby Allan (65) and Trefor Williams (67) third.
On Saturday, new member Lee Hollebone made an immediate impact to card a nett 65 and win his first medal from second placed Graham Jones (66) and Tony Hayes (69) in third.
Nicholas Mounsey shot yet another fine round on Sunday and his nett 64 took the medal leaving -up Hugh Brown (67) and David Bucke (67) contesting the minor placings
