Summers last throw of the dice brought fine, sunny conditions for the final men’s major of the season. Ninety golfers teed up in the Ray Harris Trophy in Sunday, which also doubles as the third qualifier for Terry Jacks’s Captain’s Day next year (last one in 2018).

Scoring was pretty good with 6 players breaking 70. Five of them tied on 69! Freddie Hopkinson, David Watkinson, Marco Cioffi, Simon Mitchelmore and Terry Barry played well but must have all rued a missed putt or two as Rob Read beat them all by one to take the trophy. Fred can’t complain as he finished like a tour player with a 2 on 17 and a 3 on 18, however Simon should have won, finishing treble, bogey, bogey on the last three holes. Looking at his card, Rob was pretty sensible, making steady bogeys most of the way around to use his handicap well. Great golf guys, congratulations to Rob.

On Tuesday our ladies enjoyed blue skies too as they played a Texas scramble. The winning team came from the lower end of the handicap range, with a score of 70.1 Jackie Foster, Lynne Garris and Carol Abbott just pipped Jane Collins, Sue Sheppard and Susie Hartley who returned 71. Well played ladies.

In the Bishop’s Texas Scramble, player last Wednesday, Richard Bale, Dave Kemsley and John Turner were on fire, cruising around in 66 and winning by 3 from Dave Gladwin, John Miller and Alan Stoyell.

We have a competition free weekend coming up so relax and enjoy some fun golf with your friends. It’s going to be 10 to 15 degrees cooler than last weekend so bring a woolly hat, or peruse our Winter stock for some modern, warm and fashionable clothing.
