Mens Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 10 The weather was fine and the course in great con­di­tion for the quar­ter fi­nals of the Club Cham­pi­onships which never fail to bring out play­ers who haven’t been on the course for a while. Lebo had been away so long that he seemed to have for­got­ten that the 1st green was moved a few years back, play­ing onto the green from be­hind the old green’s lo­ca­tion. He did well for a long ab­sence, but in the end was not up to hold­ing off Speedy, mean­ing there will be a new cham­pion this year. In a rare turn of events, I man­aged to win my match to make the semi-fi­nals for the first time ever. There were a few other turn ups for the books with some of the favourites go­ing down to emerg­ing tal­ents. Golfer of the week and win­ner of the Re­doubt Bar & Eatery voucher was Gil­bert Higgens with a round of 84-19-65-43 points. Hope­fully he won’t play that well next week when we meet in the semis. Other no­ta­bles in Di­vi­sion 1 were; S Scrace, G Higgs, J Adam­son 41, R Rut­ten, G Pit­con 40, J Higgens, J Ry­der, MBe­govich 39, D Sharp 38. Di­vi­sion 2 was won by Alan Pen­cavel with 41 points. Oth­ers to fea­ture were; P Hip­per­son 41, B Raynel, MPike 40, J Cronin, K Pick­ett, A Cornes 36, N Dixon, S Os­borne 35. Twos: T Howard, D Sharp. Robert Harris near­est the pin: D Sharp. Long­est putt: G Pit­con. Hid­den holes: MPike. The draw for Satur­day’s semi-fi­nals is as fol­lows. All matches off no. 1 tee. 9.15am Ladies Bronze 2; 9.22am Ladies Bronze 1; 9.28am Ladies Sil­ver; 9.34am B Raynel V R Wil­liams, E Hiller­ton v T Howard; 9.40am G Bruce v P Met­calf, B Ver­ryt v N Dixon; 9.46am A McGiven v K Bray­brook, T Richards v G Pit­con; 9.52am A Cornes v GWills, S Scrace v G Higgens; 9.58am R Coleman v R Rut­ten, MCowl­rick v J Booth; 10.04am M Buck­man v J Armstrong, T Iver­son v J Higgens; 10.10am J Stevens v M Be­govich, J Ry­der v J Adam­son; 10.15am A Pen­cavel v D Carter, S Os­borne V P Hip­per­son.
