The an­nual end-of-sea­son se­niors’ chal­lenge match be­tween the club cap­tain’s team and the club pres­i­dent’s team at Bath Ap­proach fin­ished all square with five points for each. As the club cap­tain, John Ser­combe, won the match last year he re­tained the shield and was pre­sented with it by BAGCS chair­man Brian Wood­ford. The los­ing pres­i­dent was Dave Fere­bee. ■ BATH se­niors com­peted or the Play­ers Cup last week which was played as a sta­ble­ford points com­pe­ti­tion. The win­ner was Ge­off Og­den with 38 points, sec­ond was Ian Hull with 37pts, third Tony Mccal­lum with 36 pts with Stan Frith fourth on 35 pts. The Ladies also played a sta­ble­ford points com­pe­ti­tion but in a pairs four­some for­mat. The win­ners with 36 points were Mags Ash­man-marr & Sandie Moore with 36 pts, sec­ond on count­back also with 36pts were Linda Mchugh & Sue Mor­ton-jenk­ins, third on 35 pts were Heather Cot­tle and Honor Jones and fourth on 34 points Pippa Western and Mary Perkins. Amer­i­can Green­somes is a for­mat that usu­ally leads to good scores and this proved to be the case in the Sun­day Mixed Event at Bath Golf Club. Elaine Weaver had also do­nated a tro­phy for the win­ners in me­mory of her hus­band, Mike, who had been a mem­ber of the club for more than 40 years. 10 cou­ples recorded ex­cel­lent scores of 40 points or bet­ter and 43 points from Les­ley and Peter Roe­buck en­abled them to claim third place. The ever con­sis­tent Chris­tine and Rus­sell Wake­field’s score of 44 points gave then the run­ners up slot but a su­perb re­turn of 45 points from Heather and Gra­ham Cot­tle put them in poll po­si­tion to take the first prize and be­come the in­au­gu­ral win­ners of the Mike Weaver Tro­phy. ■ LANS­DOWN The Ju­bilee Cup had a very clear win­ner as Tr­ish Ritchie scored 43 points to put her 8 points ahead of the field – sec­ond place went to Jane Bel­sten on count­back from Karen Smith as both ladies came in with 35 points. The Septem­ber mid­week sta­ble­ford went to Mervyn Town­ley with 38 points but it was all very tight. Di­vi­sion one could only be separated by count­back as Mark Cooper and Steve Ash­ley came in with 36 points. Chris Sparkes took di­vi­sion two with 37 points just one point ahead of Bill Rose whilst Stephen Pursey claimed sec­ond spot be­hind Town­ley with 36 points. The Scratch Cup is a knock­out com­pe­ti­tion for the top 16 play­ers in the club cham­pi­onship. The fi­nal will be a fas­ci­nat­ing af­fair match be­tween 10 times club cham­pion, Ed But­ler, and young Char­lie Pat­ter­son who took sec­ond place this year be­hind But­ler. In the semi­fi­nals But­ler won a tight match against head greenkeeper, Paul Gar­land, whilst Char­lie beat an­other greenkeeper, Alex Ward to claim his place in the fi­nal. The lat­est mid­week medal win­ner was Abi Bakali with 44 points which put him seven points clear of Dean Faulkner in the top di­vi­sion. Di­vi­sion two was taken by Dave Price with 36 points which put him just one shot ahead of the con­sis­tent Bill Rose. In di­vi­sion three, Adam Goodridge shot an ex­cel­lent 43 points with Jeremy Re­ice a fur­ther 5 points adrift.
