With the usual format, we played a singles Stableford in the morning for the Association's most valuable trophy, the Gold Cup. This was followed by an excellent carvery lunch before we headed out again to compete in the afternoon's event of Greensomes played in fourballs. This was with the exception of Barry Watson who exuded confidence and offered to play on his own due to a late drop out.
There were prizes for the first, second and third in the morning singles competition as well as a prize for the first placed guest of whom we had seven this year. Guests are welcome at all meetings except Captain's Day.
In first place, and the winner of the Gold Cup, was Edward Sawbridge with an amazing 40 points. With a handicap (until now) of 19, Edward also takes the Johnson Pot for best score by a 16 or over handicap.
The runner up was Danny Maylin with 38 points and in third place came Barry Watson with 36 points winning on count back from Jan Rommer.
For that performance, Barry Watson also takes the Aggregate Cup for the best combined score at the Spring and Autumn Meetings, with his 36 points added to his 30 from April.
The prize for the winning guest of the morning was Mr Peter Crump with 38 points.
In the afternoon the sun came out to play even more, with the greens speeding up and the fairway giving a lot more run after the moist course had dried from the previous night's rain.
The prize for first place went once again to Edward Sawbridge playing with Adam Sussmes with 22 points over 9 holes. In a close second place was Barry Watson, playing alone, with 21 points.
