The Woodbury Park seniors continued their winter programme with a three-ball, yellow peril event using a stableford point’s format, writes Carole Pye.

The significance of the yellow ball is that the player playing with it scores double points. Unfortunately, once the yellow ball is lost, only standard scoring is allowed!

With two teams coming in with 142 points it was the better back nine scored by David Freeman, Norman Baker and Graham Nye that gave them the winning slot, ahead of Geoff Aylett, Terry Tilbury and Mike Dillon.

The ever popular mid-week competition was won by Pete O’Connor (45), just nudging out Peter Baldwin on 44.

Half-term saw the juniors in action. This being a fairly new junior section it was lovely to see so many taking part o the course.

There were two competitions, one for handicap players and the other for those players not yet qualified for handicaps.

The winner of the handicap tournament was Scott Acheson with net 29. The runner-up, Christian Butcher, scored 31.

First place in the non-handicap competition went to Sam Haynes (35) whilst 40 points gave Matt Beer the runner-up position.

The weekend competition was an individual stableford. The winner of the first division was Stephen Tombs with 42.

Three players vied for second place but countback identified Colin Wilson as the runner-up on 41.

Scott Howarth’s score of 43 just nudged Murray Jessamine (42) into second place in the second division.

Joe Henkus (42) took the third division ahead of Robert Burford’s 41.

The ladies had only one division which was won by Sara Beaven (43) ahead of Wendy Taylor on 38.
