    The final was held on Sunday and after a tough and marathon effort the result was Ben Millott defeated Mark Jones on the 29th hole.

    The ladies final was decided by an equally tough match between Linda Terry and Millie Cumming, with Linda holding on to become the winner 2 and 1.


    A quick tip for this week:

    One for all members: don’t hate par events. Par is simply matchplay against the golf course. Sure, what would be a four-pointer in Stableford only gains you one in par, but your ‘wipes’ only cost one, too. Which do you card more often, four-pointers or wipes? Think about it…
