36 Hole Club Championship-Wednesday 8th June

The weather was magnificent, if anything too warm. Seventeen players all finished the thirty-six holes before the rains came down although the last few players could hear the rumblings of distant thunder. The pin positions were challenging to say the least but the course was in tiptop condition! Thanks are due to Mark Smith and his team for all their hard work. 
We are grateful to Cynthia Parker for working out the results and thanks are also due to Helen Baker, Ruth Hall and Sylvia Walker who acted as markers in view of last minute call offs. 
Hilary Dixon was thrilled to win the gross trophy with 176 gross, saying it had been 16 years since she las won it. At that time she accepted the trophy with her 12 month old son in her ams. He is now over six feet tall and wasn't present this time for the presentation. Runner up in gross was Jane Frith with 182.  Recently rejoined member, Julia Proud, won the Nett trophy with 150 nett and cut her handicap. Annette Bucknall was runner up in nett, on countback from Wendy McIntyre, both having 153 nett. Best nine gross was won by Bev Belcher with 45. Five twos were achieved during the two rounds.
