THE ex­pected showers did not de­ter some mem­bers who were determined to play the BBB plus B (for Bunny) hol­i­day sin­gle stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion. For­tu­nately not one drop of rain spoiled their af­ter­noon although the heavy con­di­tions made play dif­fi­cult for some play­ers.

Blake Dowl­ing played un­der par to record 39 points, a score which in­cluded an ea­gle on the par 4 15th hole. One point fur­ther back and the club­house leader for quite some time was Robyn Robin­son, fol­lowed by Clin­ton Dowl­ing on 36, Bob Champ­ney on 35, Dave Robin­son on 33 and Ray Walker on 32.

John Hin­ton won best nine holes with 20 points, while Blake also won the ap­proach on 1&10 (0.1m), with Dave Robin­son land­ing his sec­ond shot in the hole to win the ap­proach on 4&13.

The day closed in a con­vivial at­mos­phere with a re­minder to back up on Mon­day af­ter­noon for a re­peat per­for­mance.

Easter Mon­day proved warm and sunny and wel­comed a se­lect group to an­other BBB plus B sin­gle stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion, with some out­stand­ing per­for­mances.

In par­tic­u­lar, vis­i­tor and for­mer club mem­ber Chris Crouch and cur­rent club cham­pion Blake Dowl­ing each scored three un­der par 67s, just one above the course record, both cur­rently shar­ing the record of 66. Chris man­aged to record 42 points to win the com­pe­ti­tion, while Blake was edged out of run­ner-up on a count­back by Robyn Robin­son with 40 points, her gross score be­ing her best ever.

Clin­ton Dowl­ing claimed the next run­down af­ter Blake with 35 points on a count­back from Ken Al­bion who man­aged to win best nine with 21. Clin­ton also won the ap­proach, his sec­ond shot in the hole.

An­other pleas­ant af­ter­noon’s golf and so­cial­is­ing, in spite of some in­tense ri­valry to win the ticket.

Next Satur­day is Monthly Medal day for April – see you there for the 12.30pm hit-off and a re­minder to bring a plate, please.
