Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

MORE than £6,000 was col­lected for char­ity at Oak­lands Park Golf Club’s Men’s Cap­tain’s Day on Satur­day.

Around 130 mem­bers and guests took to the course be­fore en­joy­ing an evening cel­e­bra­tion, rais­ing an im­pres­sive sum for the Child­hood Eye Can­cer Trust.

Un­for­tu­nately, no­body took home the brand new Honda Jazz of­fered up by John­sons Honda of Bea­cons­field for any­one man­ag­ing a hole in one.

There were plenty of fine per­for­mances on the green, how­ever, not least by Mark Tay­lor, who saw off the chal­lenges of 95 other men to win the men’s sta­ble­ford with 39 points.

In what was a tight fin­ish, it took a count back to sep­a­rate the next three, who all fin­ished on 38 points, which de­ter­mined Steve Gam­mage fin­ished in sec­ond place, Jeff Row­lands in third and Richard Cranston in fourth.

The ladies’ nine hole com­pe­ti­tion, mean­while, saw Sue Tame emerge vic­to­ri­ous from a field of 33, fin­ish­ing on 20 points.

Mir­ror­ing the men’s com­pe­ti­tion, it took a count back to sep­a­rate Diana Dou­glas in sec­ond, Chris­tine Haigh in third and Pauline Priest in fourth af­ter they all tied on 19.
