The Ashes Trophy - Sunday 1st October
The Ashes Cup which commemorates the rebuilding of the clubhouse after a fire which destroyed it in 1955, was played for on the 1st October.
Those playing avoided both wind and rain and a pleasant day was had by all participants. Mike Fairey and Chin Fern Griffiths were eventual winners of this prestigious trophy with a 34 point comfortable victory over second-placed Phil Rajotte and Lyn Allen who scored 30 points. The best placed 4 ball included Mike, Chin Fern, Carol Farnworth and Phil Anderson (pictured here).
The day was rounded off with an excellent carvery dinner, “the best dinner I have had at the Club for ages” said Steve Monico.

Bristow Cup - Monday 28th August
The Bristow Cup is a mixed foursomes stableford competition. Foursomes is of course, one of the more challenging formats for golf, but this competition has the added difficulty (some might say) of both members of each pair being required to originate from the same family!
This year, in stunning August Bank-Holiday Monday sunshine and with the course in excellent condition,10 couples took part for the honour of winning the trophy, ensuring there was still some stiff competition for the placings. There were some good scores, but one pairing stood out from the rest.
The leading results were as follows:
In equal 3rd place on 29 points - Richard and Rosemary Harris
In 2nd place with 30 points - Anne Harris and John Tait
Overall winners with an impressive 34 points - Jane and Philip Anderson
Well done to all those above and to the others who took part.
