AS SOME members were involved in a home match versus Charminster, the Thursday competition was a self-entry, one division Stableford, writes Peter Crowter.
The weather was fine but there was a stiff breeze gusting to strong at times making for tricky conditions.
However, despite this, the top five money winners all scored 34 points or more with winner Nick Franks carding 39 points, nudging Dave Rendell (38) into the runner-up spot.
1 Nick Franks (12) 39 points, 2 Dave Rendell (21) 38, 3 (acb) Brian Osborne (19) 36, 4 Jon Winkle (26) 36, 5 John Sansom (14) 34.
Rendell and Winkle both received a one-shot handicap cut.
THE Sunday competition was the June Medal and there were 73 entrants.
The warm and sunny conditions resulted in many low scores although 11 men handed in n/r cards, probably due to visits to the very heavy rough.
Steve Crabb led Division One with a nett 69, while the leaders of Division Two and Three both came in with nett scores of 68.
The top three in Division Three all came in with a gross 91.
Division One: 1 Steve Crabb 75-6-69, 2 Gary Edwardes 79-8-71, 3 Kieran Mulhall 84-12-72.
Division Two: 1 (acb) David Corp 83-15-68, 2 Pat Hart 84-16-68, 3 Spike Spiller 86-17-69.
Division Three: 1 Malcolm Young 91-23-68, 2 Andrew Reichter 91-21-70, 3 Rob Walker 91.20.71.
Corp and Young both received a one-shot handicap cut.
THE ladies have played the qualifying rounds of two national competitions in the last fortnight, writes Rosemary Shepherd.
However, the wet and very windy weather has continued to be influential, especially on Tuesdays.
Eighteen pairs played the LGU Peugeot Coronation Foursomes on either Saturday, May 15, or Tuesday, May 18.
The winners were Di Harris and Marion Hurley with 34 points and they will now go in the regional finals at Launceston in August.
The runners-up were Carole Brown and Sue Kelson with 33 points.
Fourteen pairs played in the Ping four-ball better-ball qualifier.
The Saturday players had the advantage of dry warm weather while, once again, the Tuesday ladies battled through strong winds and heavy rain.
For the winners, Di Loving and Sue Walsh (38pts), the finals will be at Gainsborough GC in September.
The runners-up in this competition were Julie Oliver and Pat Baldwin with 32 points.
THERE was a junior medal held on Saturday. The weather was sunny and warm and Ben Carruthers took advantage of the conditions, coming in first with a score of 93-28-65. Runner-up was Kieran Mulhall with 82-12-70.
