The men played for the University Shield on Sunday, an 18-hole medal with a maximum handicap of 24. The conditions were dire with gale force winds making the going tough. Ed Glease showed his mettle, winning it with a score of 70 nett, thereby reducing his handicap by 1 shot to 3. Mark Lee was in second place with a close 71 nett. Three men finished with 72, with Stuart Grimwade awarded second place on count back, ahead of Andrew Hipkin and Kevin Smith.
The ladies played a stableford on a bright autumn day last week. Yvonne Davies won it with 39 points, reducing her handicap by 2 shots. Lyn Lawrence came in second with 37 points. And Val Nicholls finished in third place with 31 points.
The Menís Dinner took place on a Friday night with a 4BBB the following morning. After a fine dinner, the morning tee off times seemed rather early. But Gus Rusbridge and Adrian Joshua prevailed with 42 stableford points. Three pairs finished with 41, with Peter Outtridge and Neil Hawkes awarded second place on count back, ahead of Andrew Bailey and Tony Nicholls, and Malcolm King and Nigel Oakley.
