WESTON Golf Club held its second men's four-ball betterball open with over 180 competitors taking part, including more than half of those from visiting Clubs.

The windy conditions made the challenge of the course all the more interesting, particularly for the afternoon players, when the wind picked up considerably.

Club members Andy Skinner and Steve Roberts clinched the trophies, with an excellent score of 41 pts, closely followed by three further pairs on 40 points.

In his presentation speech, Andy Skinner thanked the club, the greenstaff and all the clubhouse staff for their contribution.

Andy has been on top form this season and no doubt the number of lessons that he has taken with the club's assistant pro, Ben Lock has been extremely worthwhile.

WESTON Ladies Golf section held its annual Invitation Day recently.

The event was well supported with 56 ladies taking part, half of whom were guests from neighbouring clubs.

The format for the day was a four-ball betterball Stableford. A shotgun start at midday saw the ladies teeing off at the beginning of what was an extremely pleasant day for.

Following the competition the ladies enjoyed an excellent meal in the clubhouse at which the prize-giving also took place.

Results: D Brown and J Walpinton, 43 pts; C Preston and T Phelps, 41; C Read and J Richards, 40; B Robert and S Chambers 40. Nearest the pin: B Robert.

Other results for September - EWGA Medal: J Phillips, 73 net. EWGA Medal: D Allen 60 net.

Stableford: J Cumming (silver) 36 pts; M. Rossi (bronze) 35 pts. Texas Scramble: P Lancaster, S Radcliffe, J Stafford 57.8 pts.

THE first knockout final of the season took place at Isle of Wedmore Golf Club recently.

The ladies singles was played early as Maggs Willetts had played well enough to reach the pairs final as well.

In this match, for the Macarthur Trophy, she was up against June Smith, who started the more nervous of the two and fell behind early on. A mistake by Maggs on the third helped June level the scores and from there on the level of play picked up to provide an exciting final

June had moved twp up before Maggs parred the last two holes of the front nine to bring the match back to all square.

June came back to par the first two holes on the back nine to regain her lead and although Maggs twice pulled this back to just a single hole, June , with a little help from a hedge, always kept in front.

The end came on the 17th with June holing a tricky putt with what appeared to be nerves of steel to clinch a 2&1 victory.

Conditions were much less pleasant for the second playing of the King Alfred Cup, a scratch medal competition, which this year introduced a new trophy, the Queen Elizabeth Cup for the Ladies.

The scores reflected these difficulties, but as always there are notable exceptions. Martin Stephens took the men's trophy with a hard fought 79, whilst John Wormold managed to play to his handicap to take the net prize. In an abbreviated ladies field, Fiona Beattie was the unsurprising winner of the trophy with Claire Biggs winning the net prize.

Other results - Ladies Stableford: Division 1: Carol Jackson (42); Judy Cutter (39); Ronnie Follenfant (38). Division 2: Liz Miller (42); Sue Painter (39); June Simmonds (39).
