It's been a difficult week for Cirencester Golf Club after the theft of it's silver trophy collection.

Andrew Dickson was victorious in the November Mixed Stableford while Ed Goodwin claimed his first win of the season at the Gloucester and Somerset Medal.

Winter Mixed Stableford

Andrew Dickson was the only player to hit the 40-point barrier which was good enough to win the November Mixed Stableford in a week when Cirencester Golf Club was left reeling by the callous theft of its silver trophy collection.

Andrew improved some 18 points on his previous Stableford competition entry the previous month and the 14-handicapper’s tidy card, which included 10 pars, could have been even better but for a double bogey 6 on the 18th hole.

Andrew was followed him by Mark Jameson (39), Dan Gregory (38), Robert Simmonds (38) and Paul Dominguez (38).

The leading lady was Muriel Telling in 15th place with 35 points.

There were seven twos, the shot of the day coming from Chris Pollard who holed out with his second shot on the par four 5th for an eagle.

“I hit a good drive and had 46 yards to go (to a blind pin position) and felt my approach shot was ok,” said Chris.

“There was no sign of the ball on the green but a healthy pitch mark two inches from the pin so I had a cheeky look inside and there it was.”

Gloucester & Somerset Medal

Ed Goodwin gained his first win of the season on the Gloucester & Somerset PGA circuit at the Cleeve Hill Medal.

Cirencester pro Ed shot a one under par 70 on a breezy day and was joined at the top of the leaderboard by Luke Derrick (Henbury) and David Dixon (Enmore Park).

Cheltenham resident Ed was a model of consistency as he had two birdies on his card and just one bogey.

He has now moved up to second place in the Total Triumph Order of Merit behind Giuseppe Licata.
