THERE was some qual­ity golf on show as Car­marthen Golf Club se­niors cap­tain Rho­dri Davies chose Cradoc for his an­nual away day.

Nearly 40 se­niors made the trip to Bre­con and were for­tu­nate to have a sunny day with the course in good con­di­tion.

There were three divi­sions, and com­ing out on top in di­vi­sion one was Ian Grif­fiths with 35 points. He was fol­lowed by Rho­dri Davies, who edged out Gra­ham Williams for sec­ond on the back nine af­ter both scored 34 points.

The win­ner in di­vi­sion two was Robert Thomas with 36 points, with a bet­ter back nine than Ian Mitchell in sec­ond. They were fol­lowed by Si­mon Bar­rett in third on 35.

In di­vi­sion three, the clear win­ner on the day with an ex­cel­lent 41 points was Wyn James, fol­lowed by Paul Ben­nett on 37 and Peter Collins in third on 35.

There were two near­est the pin prizes which went to Wyn James and Si­mon Bar­rett, and near­est the pin in two on the par-four eighth was Hy­wel Mor­ris .

On the same day, the se­niors’ B team trav­elled to Glyn­hir for the quar­ter-fi­nals of the Clas­sic Bowl com­pe­ti­tion where they met Mor­lais Cas­tle. And it turned out to be a very suc­cess­ful day, with Peter Williams and Alan Lewis win­ning 4&3 and Adrian Thomas and Nor­man Ed­wards win­ning 7&6.

This meant that Tony Jones and Gary Evans could shake hands on a half. The team now go on to the semi­fi­nals where they will face Pon­typridd A at Mor­ris­ton Golf Club in the mid­dle of Au­gust.

Mean­while, the ladies’ sec­tion hon­oured their lady pres­i­dent Mar­garet Li­versedge by play­ing a stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion for which she had kindly pro­vided gen­er­ous prizes in three cat­e­gories.

In di­vi­sion one, Me­gan Thomas took first place with 39 points. Sec­ond was Ann Mor­ris with 36, who edged out Paula James via a bet­ter back nine. In di­vi­sion two, Vay Ash­ley-Jones took first with 36 points, with Pat Lan­g­ley in sec­ond with 34. In third place was De­lyth Rees (31).

In di­vi­sion three there were some im­pres­sive high scores, with Chris­tine Soons win­ning with 41 points. Lady cap­tain Brenda Richards was sec­ond with 40 and Anne Williams scored 37 in third place.

Jane Lindquist was near­est the pin on the par-three ninth hole and Edna Mor­ris was near­est the line on the 18th hole.
