ISLE of Wedmore Seniors' and Ladies' Sections held their annual general meetings.

First off were the Seniors. The more formal business of the day was proceeded by a greensomes match between the Captain's and Vice-Captain's teams which resulted in a narrow victory for the Captain, Ellis Nearn, who was clearly delighted to retain the trophy for a further year.

The meeting was largely uncontroversial which is undoubtedly an indication that the past year has been successful. David Russell was able to smile happily as he put on his green jacket to begin his captaincy with the section going from strength to strength.

The new captain of the Ladies' section Claire Biggs won the Summer Eclectic; Wendy Lucas won the Shirley Restorick Trophy for the most improved player; new vice-captain Jane Hewitt won the EWGA medal and Alison Dodkin the LGU Brooch.

In the Monthly Medal, Robert Henry had an incredible nett 64 to win Division 2 which was hard on James Vowles whose 66 only got him second place with Tony Hoskings third with 72.

In Division 1, Bill Lander had an excellent gross 76 (nett 70), but this only secured second place behind Mark Higginbottom (nett 69) with John Russell third (nett 72). The higher handicappers found it slightly harder going but a score of nett 72 was still good on the day and good enough to earn first place for Greg Cox on count-back from Malcolm Tanner. Wayne Puleston was third with nett 74.

A RECENT meeting of 19 past captains of Worlebury Golf Club, going back to George Coates in 1962. The meeting was held to ratify this year's vice-captain's Martin Green nomination of his vice-captain for 2010, the nomination of Jim Sutherland was unanimously accepted.

BURNHAM and Berrow now run Open 9-hole Stableford competitions on the second Wednesday and last Saturday of every month.

The first competition was played on November 11 and was won by Clifford Crawford with 19 points on count-back from John Nuttall. It was somewhat poignant that on the day when he would be remembering his fallen comrades in the Second World War, 86-year-old Dr P H (Mike) Barry, who still plays off a handicap of 18, retuned a creditable 16 points to take third place.
