Here's all the latest result from Cirencester golf club, including seniors and ladies.


MARK CLAYTON & Daimien McConnell combined to win the I H Smith Foursomes, one of the rare competitions in the Cirencester calendar for this alternate-shot format with pairs playing off half-combined handicaps.

It was a good weekend all round for former Lechlade CC wicket keeper Mark, who also took a nearest-the-pin prize on the Macmillan Charity Golf Day. Mark and Daimien knocked it around in nett 69.5.

It was a successful competition for the Peare family, with brothers Ryan and Jack finishing second and the father-and-son combo of Nick and Bruce coming home fifth.


1st: Mark Clayton & Daimien McConnell 69.5; 2nd: Ryan & Jack Peare (70.5); 3rd: Richard Hicks & Clive Gray (70); 4th: Paul Godding & Nick Rutter (71.5); 5th: Nick & Bruce Peare (72.0); 6th: Clive Montgomery & Andy Brereton (73.0).


JOHN APPLEBY and Graham Marshall were the two winners in the Seniors’ Championship Medal played on June 10, each collecting a cash prize and a trophy.

Despite being a late starter and battling the worst of the weather, six-handicapper John posted the best gross score of 79, while Graham produced the best nett result of 70.

Ian Perry and Gerry Bruton may have been also-rans in the main competition but they shared a very lucrative pot (£41.50 each) as the only players who signed for birdie twos.


Division One: Graham Marshall (80-10=70), Ken Mills (83-12=71), Mark Woodhead (80-09=71), Dave Jones (83-11=72), Keith Hodgson (85-13=72).

Division Two: Dave Allen (89-19=70), Andrew Rhys-Evans (92-21=71), John Pooley (95-22=73), Ken Anderson (95-22=73), John Binder (96-22=74).



MANY local clubs were represented as the ladies’ section hosted their Open Eclectic – and the host club were able to keep a share of some of the top prizes at home.

Forty eight pairs entered with 13 holes being played both before and after lunch.

Cirencester’s former county player Ali Kelly teamed up with Minchinhampton’s Sue Mallon to top the best gross leaderboard with 55. The runners-up were Mel Lee & Tina Lewis, both from Cotswold Edge, on 57.

The best overall nett score came from Liz Allen (Cirencester) & Judith Knight (Marlborough) with 40, and they were followed home by Wendy Martin & Pam Ackthorn from Cotswold Hills (42).

Best Gross (Morning): Jackie Nicholson & Tess Dick (Cotswold Hills) 65.

Best Nett (Morning): Sefton Hooton and Amanda Chong (Rodway Hills) 50.

The club has already received a number of letters thanking them for their hospitality and the great organisation of this popular day.

The wet weather resulted in a number of ladies’ comps being cancelled but the Carroll Salver went ahead on Sunday after some downpours, with Ali Kelly again coming out on top.

The competition mirrored the men’s I H Smith Foursomes, with pairs playing off half-combined handicap and taking alternative shots.

Ali partnered Blanche Neal to a winning score of 73.5.

Second on 77 were Jan Flynn & Debbie Chesworth who pipped Kate Dymoke & Fiona Fyfe (77) on countback.
