A busy week of competitions began with the prestigious Southgate-Brown Cleek over 36 holes and a fine win by new member James Clarke whose nett total 136 saw him finish clear of runner-up Rod Hall (141) and third placed Frank Howroyd (144). Howroyd, however, did not take long to gain compensation as on Friday his nett 70 was good enough to take the monthly medal with Nigel Warder (73) and Neil Arends (75) taking the minor places.
Saturday’s medal saw Alex Tindall card a creditable 67 to win from Chris Shawyer (70) and Jon Howley (70) and in Sunday’s version, new member Richard Chamberlain took the honours with a nett 67 from fellow newcomer Steve Cooper (69) in second place and seasoned campaigner Mark Duguid (71) in third.
The performance of the week, however, came in the Ladies Spring Meeting where Pam Hayhurst pulverised the field to win with 38 points from runner-up Barbara Hall (31) and third placed Hazel Webber (27). Pam also caught the attention of the handicapper and receives a 2 shot cut.
