A HOLE IN ONE on the 9th for the Ladies Captain during the semi-final of the pairs knockout this week. Drinks all round!!!

The September medal was won by Megan Bonner with a superb score of nett 69. 2nd place with nett 73 was Kathy Dale.

Double on the Even Holes format resulted in some big scores! A tremendous 59 points gave 1st place to Julia Goodwin. In 2nd place was our Tuesday competition organiser, Hazel Brunnen, with 54 points. Thank you to Di Rogers and Mary Hooper for checking the cards. Well done to Di Rogers, Elaine Bragg and Mandy Unger, who achieved birdies today and Julia Goodwin who accomplished two birdies in one round today.

Round 2 of the Eclectic Cup was hotly contested. Congratulations go to Virginia Chan. Three birdies today and two birdies last week helped to create the lowest gross score of 71 – less than course par!!! A worthy winner of the Eclectic Cup 2016. 2nd place goes to Pat Ward with gross 76.

There is also a prize for the best nett score. After a very good score in round 1, Rogie Taylor recorded her best ever score in Round 2 to achieve an exceptional nett 67 and secure her place as our nett winner. Her final eclectic score was an amazing nett 60. As well as her great gross score, Virginia had a brilliant nett score of 61 giving her 2nd place in the nett competition. Well done to all players.

Kathy Dale, Ladies Captain
