It was a stroke of brilliance that the Vets Committee held their Annual General Meeting before golf on Monday October 1, and as it was a fine day, they turned up in droves, and like children in school, all were keen to get outside on to the course. Retiring Captain Judy Borchard, who has held the position for three years, leaves the Section in good heart, with ever- increasing numbers attending each week, and a strong committee to carry on her good work led by incoming Captain Chris O’Connell. Competition for the day was Individual Stableford. Results — Men: Gyan Prole 42 points; Peter Hewitt 41; Allan Sarjant, Ray Berghan 40; Bill Tiffin, Brian Baynes, Paul Chadwick 39; Peter Wright, Rodger Bagshaw, Eddie Bruce 38; David Gear, John Purkis, Roger Stiles, Wayne Gamble 38; Gerry Tompkins, Bob Hoggard, Geoff Gunn 37; Richard Still, Tom Wallace, Gary Dunlop 36; Andrew McLennan, Maurice Joyce, Norm Sanderson 34; Ken Purcell 33; Bill Newland 32.

Men’s Golf — 18 holes
On Saturday September 29 it was a warm, calm morning, and with the better weather conditions seen for a while, scoring was quite tight for the 42 players in the nett competition. Results: Tom Rowbotham 67; Roger Bagshaw, Mike Bonnici, Ray Fisher 68; Bob Hoggard, Ken Purcell, Graham O’Dwyer 70; Graham Hawkes, Don Oliver 71. There was a light breeze that had little effect on the 27 afternoon players in their nett competition, returning some very good scores, apart from being momentarily dazzled by a player showing off his flamboyant new strides that would have even made John Daly blush. Results: Russell Berridge 66; Nigel Sanderson 68; Keith Bell 69; Charles Gurr, John Taylor 70; Chris Gates, Eddie Evans, Terry Gerbich, Wayne Brierley 71. Thanks to the greens staff — the course is in great condition and looking a picture.
