The Claret Jug is one of Woodbury Park’s Senior Section ‘Majors’ and attracted 57 entries this year, writes Julie Browne.

The weather was good, the course played well and, with the running down the fairways and the greens in fine condition the expectancy was that a big number would win, and so there was great surprise, when the results came in, as to just how the individual stableford panned out.

The winner was Vinod Chouhan with an excellent 42 points.

Vinhod, clearly delighted to win the Claret Jug, said: “I just had one of those days!”

In what was a close contest, David Gillings came second with 40 points and there were three players, Terry Welsh, Keith Pearsey and Ken Todd, all on 38 points with Steve Unsworth and Dave Freeman following with 37.

The charity ‘Nearest The Pin’ on the 18th for FORCE, was won by Alan Stone.

Woodbury Park seniors captain Peter Warner says: “Congratulation to Vinod and the rest of our winners and a big thank to everyone who entered for their support. I certainly hope that all enjoyed their day.”

Meanwhile, in other Woodbury Park news, the Oaks Memorial was won by Stephen Deviell with a score of 42 points.

The winner of the Ladies Oaks Memorial was Kay Foster with 37 points. Second was Lauren Pearce, with 36, and third was Kim Beauchamp, also with 36.
