The popularity of the Woodbury Park mid-week stableford competition continues to grow, with over 50 players taking part, writes Carole Pye.

After count-back, Barry Parfitt (37) was declared the winner ahead of Terry Wheatley.

The Seniors had an excellent turnout for their roll-up an Individual Stableford. Adrian Foster comfortably led with 45 from Andrej Sobczak on 38.

The first major competition on the Acorns, The Copper Kettle, took place in cold and rainy conditions the ladies, as always, were in good spirit.

The competition was played over 18 holes with a medal on the front nine and a stableford on the back. Extra prizes were on offer for the longest drive, nearest the pin and two’s (where the player takes only two shots to get down).

Gina Cox was the winner followed by Ursula Shulham-Shaw with Val Alker in third place. The longest drive went to Marie Penny whilst Sue Bury had the nearest the pin. Ann Spiller was the only player to achieve a hole in two.

The first defeat for the ladies’ Sheelah Creasy team was felt last week with Woodbury edged out 4-3 at Honiton.

The weekend competition, The Badger Bowl. attracted a very large field. The men’s first division was won by Andy Blakemore on 70 with runner-up David Freeman on 73.

The second division was taken, after count-back, by Alex Freer (70) with Gary Batten second. Peter Baldwin (74) was the winner of the third division, leading David Skinner on 76.

The ladies’ silver division was won by Paula O’Neill with 74; Angela Mullerworth (78) was second. Michele Ward won the bronze division with a 76, ahead of Elaine Preston (78).

The overall winners of the Badger Bowl were Alex Freer and Paula O’Neill.
