Wednesday 8 December – Stableford:

Warren-Sheargold has been threatening to “play out of his skin” for a couple of weeks now, and this very good score of 40 points was overdue.

The B-Grade voucher was his! Neil “Mr. Scotland” Leckenby won A-Grade with a neat 36 points and the day’s R/up was Barry Maltman, amassing 37 points. Balls got down to 34.

NTP’s went to Warren-Sheargold, (5th), Dave-Murch, (9th), G. Lemister, (a Yea guest–on the 10th), David-Waterman, (12th)and to Ms. Dickson (15th).


President-Hatt showed that his extra admin duties are NOT affecting his golf.

His 21 points accounted for all others in the field, allowing him to grab the Twilight voucher.

That man, Leckenby, is in “red-hot” form, as he grabbed the R/up voucher with 20 excellent points. Balls extended to 18 only!

NTP winners were Shane-Campbell, (10th), Sam-Dennis, (12th) and Kenno, (15th).

Saturday 11 December – Stroke and Foursomes Championship:

This is a board event, so it stands to reason that it presents a real challenge to all and sundry.

The key to success is team work more than in any other competition.

On offer are the Open-Foursomes championship and the best Nett score.

The Open winners, clearly with some consistent teamwork golf were Steve-Wyatt and Michael-Pinkster, with a creditable 119 “off-the-stick” ( Keep in mind that is over 27 holes, not 18).

The Nett winners, with a superb Nett 103, were the popular pairing of Meredith-Nursey and Gerry-Hadfield.

This is especially impressive as Captain-Meredith had plenty on her mind, (as all good Captains do) and her partner is a sprightly nonagenarian 95 and counting!

They also happen to be next-door neighbours, so this win was “written in the stars!”

The R/up was the pairing of David-Murch and Michael-Plant – well done to all on these achievements.

There were some NTP winners, namely–Steve-Wyatt, (3rd), Geoff-Fall, (9th), Paul-Osbourne, (12th) and Trevor-Porter, (15th)

The Christmas breakup is on next Saturday, (the 18th), so assemble your 4-Person Ambrose team “quick-smart.
