The drive-in for Lit­tle­stone War­ren’s three cap­tains was well sup­ported by mem­bers on a fine spring day.

The drives of the three all reached the fair­way, with men’s cap­tain An­thony Codd beat­ing the all time record.

The Stable­ford scores re­flected the con­di­tions and the top seven per­form­ers all scored bet­ter than the stan­dard scratch and re­ceived re­duc­tions in their hand­i­caps.

In first place was Kevin Carr (h19) with 45 points, fol­lowed by Barbara Down (h14) with 43 points.

Toni Oven­den (h23) was third with 42 points, con­tin­u­ing her re­cent fine form.

This event was a good start to this year’s des­ig­nated char­ity, the Bri­tish Heart Foun­da­tion. Oven­den won the Ce­cil Leitch Five Club Com­pe­ti­tion and will rep­re­sent Lit­tle­stone War­ren at the county fi­nal in late June.

It will be some­thing of a fam­ily day out for Toni, as hus­band Andy won the Ce­cil Leitch as a mem­ber of the Ar­ti­sans sec­tion of Lit­tle­stone Golf Club and will be play­ing at the same event, in the men’s com­pe­ti­tion.
