Throughout the winter months at Woodbury Park the seniors play a Winter League competition, designed to encourage support during the harsh winter elements, writes Carole Pye.

Although the competition has not yet run its course, the leading player Andrzej Sobczak, cannot be caught and has been declared the winner with 50 points.

Bitterly cold weather reduced the turnout for the seniors’ roll-up, a team stableford, to fifteen players. Derek Knight, Andrzej Sobczak and Dave Freeman won with 75 points, whilst the runners-up, Ian Marvin, Keith Lunness and Tony Marshall came in with 63.

The ladies’ coffee and golf morning was very successful with teams travelling from neighbouring counties to take part.

Before the golf the visitors had time for tea and cake and to browse the various stalls. On the same day there was a club stableford competition on both courses, the Oaks over 18 holes and the Acorns over 9.

The winning lady on the Acorns was Ursula Shulham Shaw followed by Jasmine Clapson.

The Oaks winner was Sara Beaven with Marleen Johnson coming in second.

Over 60 players took part in the weekend competition which was a four-ball better ball format.

Neil Rice and David Skinner were the winners with 43 points just nudging out Robert Lake and Mike Bird (42).

Matt Maslen, Gary Batten, Noel Pond, Steve Stott and Paul Crafer put up a sterling fight against Padbrook Park in ‘The Men’s Mail on Sunday Knockout.’

The result was two and a half points each, which meant there had to be a play-off which, unfortunately, Woodbury lost.

The players all agreed it had been a most enjoyable day with a friendly atmosphere.
