Congratulations to Josh Greenaway and Caroline Hume-Kendall who have become Club Champion Golfers for 2021.
Scores were very close after round one in both competitions with Rob Cook returning a one over par 70 followed by Rod Frost on 71 with 5 other players within 3 shots of that mark.
Caroline Hume Kendall and Jan Harrison could not be seperated after returning gross 77's on Saturday.
Sunday's conditions were more challenging with a keen breeze and slightly overcast conditions compared to the flat calm weather on Saturday.
A very fine gross 71 from Josh Greenaway against a 75 for Rob Cook saw victory over 36 holes by a single stroke.
Scoring was just as competitive for the Ladies on Sunday and another very consistent round on 76 meant that Caroline Hume-Kendall would finish with a four stroke winning margin from Kath Hopkins.
Nett winners for the Men were : Jeremy Knight 139 c/b Runner Up Matt Fox 139
Winner of the net competition (Foster Centenary Cup) for the Ladies was Nicki Corkhill 142 Runner Up Maria Buckley147 Most improved score Rd 1 / RD 2 Helen Lowe 11 shots.
The Bannerman Trophy (Mixed Greensomes) was won with an excellent 45 points by Frank Harper and Annie Cruse.
The 666 Competition on Saturday was won by Nigel Buse, Tuck Clagett and Tom Wills with 77 points on countback from Julian Darnell, Mark Pimble and John Williams.

Thank you to all the competitors who played this weekend.
In case you weren't sure how to play the 5th hole during the Club Champs, Greg Mather has a few pointers - play left handed, select 8-iron, play a little draw into the green then not watch as it bounces a couple of times and rolls into the hole. Simple.
Congratulations on a perfect shot!

A mixed group of 12 travelled to Dartmouth Hotel and Golf resort earlier this week, organised by the Captain, who unfortunately was not able to participate but was ably replaced by Celia Jarvis (who was not made to play off the white tees!). In lovely weather each day, three rounds were played over the two courses, followed by a few drinks in the sunshine, and very good three course evening meals in the Hotel.
The winners for each day were:
Dartmouth course Individual Stableford - Barry 40 pts & Jenny Westwood 39 pts
Championship Course BB - Paul & Jaqui Vincent 45 pts
Championship Course Team - Bob & Annie Cruse, Pat & Marie Bradbury 103 pts
For the only 2 made on the Championship Course, John Twiggs won 24 balls.
As can be seen from the photo, a good social time was had by all!
