The Woodbury Park seniors played the first major event of the season, The Spring Cup, writes Carole Pye.

There was a field of some 40 players and it was Tony Marshall, with an excellent score of 43, who was the overall winner ahead of Andrzej Sobczak (38).

The President’s played their first match of the season away at Holsworthy.

The ladies found the course quite windy and in places rather tricky, but interesting. All agreed it was a pleasant day and the 4-3 defeat, on an away course, was a great result.

The winner of the mid-week stableford competition was Steve Jarman with 41 points; Ian Kirk (36) was the runner-up.

The weekend was very busy with club competitions on both Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday the men played in the ‘Virgin Atlantic’, the ladies took part in an Individual stableford. Both of these competitions had an excellent turnout.

The men’s first division was won by John Dick on 37, followed by Stuart Winks (35). David McGregor with an impressive 42 took the second division he also won ‘The Virgin Atlantic’ competition.

Winning this event has qualified David to represent Woodbury Park in the professional/amateur regional finals to be played later this year; his partner will be Peter Laugher the Woodbury professional.

Robin Dummelow (37) was runner-up. The third division was won by Adrian Greenslade (39) just edging out David Skinner on 38.
