On the Se­nior scene sion One this sea­son, writes Tony Poole.

The un­beaten Haver­ford­west sub­ur­ban­ites dom­i­nated for long pe­ri­ods, and gen­er­ally proved too street­wise for the mean Green Ma­chine.

But it was nev­er­the­less a worth­while ex­er­cise lock­ing horns with teams more ac­cus­tomed to the at the Ken­fig club, David Beech swam with the tide last week to take a Sta­ble­ford event with 34 points.

A count­back vic­tory came at the ex­pense of Peter Wil­liams, who rued three blobs after card­ing a mag­nif­i­cent seven pars.

Also on the 34-point mark was Paul Wilby (seven pars) while three points back came Ray­mond Tucker, Richard Kerr and Grif­fith Spens­ley.

And Chris Cole mined 33 points to win a Se­nior Sec­tion Sta­ble­ford event, shoot­ing four pars.

He had one point in hand over John Sto­rie; Larry Lewis came in with 30 points and Dr Vi­vian Thomas shot 29 points.

Next on the score­board were three 28-point men – Gary Jones, Mal­colm Evans and Wayne Wil­liams.

Mean­while, ju­nior mem­ber Sean David was one of three play­ers to shoot 78 in the Glam­or­gan Golf Union U14 Championships staged at Rhondda.

But he had to be sat­is­fied with sec­ond place, as Thomas Sav­ill won the event with Dy­lan Thomas tak­ing third spot. club with ridicu­lously low green fees.

And a club steeped in his­tory pos­sessed quick greens lov­ingly man­i­cured by Steve Trickey; su­perb scenery and larger than life char­ac­ters who are the life and soul of the club.

Some of these Maesteg char­ac­ters last week also proved they aren’t bad golfers ei­ther with Ian Mor­gan de­feat­ing Mor­gan John in the Cliff Rees fi­nal for hand­i­cap­pers from 10 to 17.

Paul James took the weekly Way­far­ers com­pe­ti­tion over nine holes with a count­back 20 points from Peter Wil­liams with Nigel Ham get­ting a tasty 19 points.

In the Se­nior Sec­tion Sta­ble­ford over 15 holes, Peter Mor­gan was tri­umphant on 31 points from Michael Howe 29 and top driver Gra­hame Hill 28.

The Ladies Sec­tion rounded off their sum­mer cam­paign in stag­ing a Sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion that Au­drey Greg­son won in front of Ceri-Ann Mor­gan and Pamela Jones.
