The weather started on a promising note at Wedmore GC this week and it was almost spring-like for the Seniors playing a 3-ball bowmaker on Monday, writes Anthony Biggs.

Best of the day came from the strong threesome of Steve Plant, Moly McMillan and Ellis Nairn, who recorded an impressive 86 points. They were pushed hard by Steve Heal, David Crew and Mike Cowie, who finished as runners-up just two points behind. Robert Watts, Trevor Marshall and Barry Royal were the only other team to hit 80 points, taking third place.

By Thursday, the rain had come again and the Ladies limited their Four-Ball Better Ball to just thirteen holes. Sue McDonald and Mary-Lou Denny led the way in a close finish, winning with 24 points, just one better than Liz Hill and Hazel Gough in second place. Beverley Broad and Janet Cornish took third place on countback from Karen Clark and June Smith after both scored 22.

The weekend competition was due to be the final round of the Winter League, already reduced from 4 to 3 rounds but with heavy rain threatened and it being unlikely to complete 18 holes it was decided to admit defeat and abandon the League for this year.
