It was another busy time for all at Woodbury Park last week, writes John Bridgman.

The ladies’ rolled up and played on both the Acorns and Oaks courses to enjoy a stableford qualifier.

Over on the Acorns, Val Chun scored 43 points to seal her win with Sue Berry not far behind on 41.

Chris Haveron was busy knocking in her second hole in one on the 13th, in as many weeks, at the same hole.

Unlucky for some, but not this ‘dead eyed Dame’. Mary White with 36 beat Valerie Dillon on 34 into second place over on the Oaks course. (This part of my report was the work of Carole Pye who you recall enhanced these columns before me, thank you Carole).

An Order of Merit Medal was contested in midweek. Division One was won by Paul Crafer who scored a 79 (handicap 10) for an overall 69.

Division Two went to Ian Pugsley 87 (16) for a 71 and Richard Jenner 103 (27) for a 76, took the honours in Division Three.

The older chaps came out to play in a Major competition, ‘The Pairs Goblets’.

The winners, on 41 points, were Chris Padget and Malcolm Pledger. After shrieks of derision from the rest of the field, the result was allowed to stand. You can see what all the fuss is about, because Chris is the captain, and Malcolm is a past captain. Who picks the teams, I ask? In second place were Barrie Thomas and Andczje Sobczak with 40 points and third were Kevin Wortt and Brian Major with 39.

Last weeks midweek stablefords took place on the Acorns and Oaks couses. John Day took the winners spot with 36 points, followed closely by Geoff Easterbrook on 35 whilst third place went to Pat Thomas (34).

The Acorns players have become quite an established bunch and are to be congratulated for their endeavours. Phillip May won the battle on the Oaks with 37 points. Dave Freeman edged out Leslie Phare on countback, with both amassing 36 apiece. This last weekend was ‘Presidents Day’ and Sir John Evans, supported by the captains and committee members, steered over 150 players through eighteen tough holes terminating at the prize giving later in the evening.

Many prizes were awarded during that time to the best of each category for the best score by a senior to our best junior player.

I am sure that Sir John would like me to express on his behalf how we members look forward to enjoy such annual events.

So, how did they do? Here are a few happy bunnies! Harvey Jones won Division One with 40 points, beating John Mills 38 into second place, just ahead of Ian Darvelle on 37. Division Two was won by Domonic Wilson with 41 points ahead of Matthew Smith on 38 and David Verdon-Smith on 37.

Third Division winner, on 39 points, was David Skinner followed by John Ash on 34 and Ross Lambert with 33.

That’s just about a fortnight of news from me, sorry to have missed you all last week. I moved house last weekend and proceeded to fall down the stairs and suffered from severe bruising! That aside, I will bear the pain and the ridicule that goes with the job and who knows you might see me on a fairway some day soon, happy whacking, cheers, John.
