The annual match between The Ship and the Tendring Gents golfing societies took place on Saturday at FGC.
It was a well-supported event, and competitively challenging. Benign weather conditions prevailed, making the going somewhat easier than of late, with little wind.
The result was a draw, 4 ½ to 4 ½, with The Ship retaining from last year’s win. James Johnston was the non-playing guest of honour. He is a founder-member of The Ship society.

The ladies played a medal on their day in challenging weather conditions, raising the CSS to 75, or +2 for the day. Three recent winners topped the leader board.
Last week’s greensomes winners, Caroline Gard and Yvonne Davies finished first and second with 76 and 77 netts. And Donna Oliver was in the money again with a nett score of 78.
All winners’ handicaps remained unchanged.
