September Medal Saturday 17th Sept 2011
A bright fresh morning greeted the 14 entrants in the penultimate competition of the season. Unfortunately there were two heavy showers later on which caused the golf to be more difficult and only one player broke par on the day.Charles Holland shot a nett 69 to take first place and he was pushed hard by Jake Willshaw, who in only his second 18 hole comp, finished with a nett 70 to take the runner up spot. These two players along with Gareth Salt, who was placed third, were the only ones who bettered the CSS of 72 and qualified for a handicap reduction.
Young Tom Willshaw was again victorious in the 10 hole comp as he recorded his third win of the year.
Congratulations to the winners and all those who supported the competition.
Full results are published in the Clubhouse.
