Cirencester Golf Club
The competition, for both gentlemen and ladies, has been played on May 5 every year since 2010 to commemorate 100 years of golf at the current Bagendon course.
This year saw a record entry of 111 participants in what turned out to be closely fought contests in both the Gents' and Ladies' competitions.
Webster's amazing 41 points left him just one point ahead of Division 1 winner Jonathan Cowley. Well done to both for some fantastic golf.
Runner-up in Division 1 was the evergreen Dick Tugwell with a majestic 39, followed by the club competitions officer Mike Bishop on 38 points. Division 2 was another great contest with Stuart Michaelis recording 36 points, one ahead of a rejuvenated Pete Townsend.
The Ladies competition was also an exciting affair with Jan Flynn the overall winner with 32 points on countback from the Irena Windslow who edged out her close friend Ann Fisher (31) by one shot.
Just behind was Christine Clark (29pts) on countback from Lea Finding.
Cirencester A 4.5
Forest Of Dean 1.5
THE combination of blustery winds and heavy prolonged showers made for difficult playing conditions for the ‘A’ Team’s first home match of the season.
However, they mastered the conditions to record a comfortable victory 4.5 to 1.5 win over a spirited Forest of Dean team.
Hamish Mason and Darren Robison don’t lose many matches at home and were always in control of their game. Although there were a couple of blips along the way they eased to a 5&4 win.
The best result of the day saw Nicholas Brown and Simon May continue their impressive form; they must have decided early on to limit their exposure to the bad weather as they won 7&6 and promptly sought shelter in the clubhouse.
