There were many other very good performances with many many scores in the nett 60’s, too many to list here, but well done to all players, we cartainly have an excellent crop of young golfers at present. Also on Wednesday, the Midweek Medal took place where Keith Richards achieved the best score with a nett 69, good enough to win Division Two by 5 shots from 4 players who had 74’s. Jonathan Moore won Division One with a nett 72, one shot clear of Pat Michael and 2 clear of four more players with 74’s, clearly a popular score on that day!

On Sunday 2nd, the South West Women’s Championships took place at Broadstone with many Broadstone members talking part in the 36 hole event. The event was a great success with fine weather throughout and some excellent scores, including the winning scratch score of 143 (70 & 73) from Gloucestershire golfer Alex Saunders and also, many Broadstone golfers who did the club proud. I will be honest, I struggled to understand exactly who won what at the prizegiving with so many prizes awarded and at the time of writing this report, I don’t have the full details published elsewhere as yet, but I do know prizes were won by Sienna Birch, Megan Walker, Di Freda and Louise Burke. Well done to all involved. Also on Sunday, the Hardy A team suffered an away defeat at Knighton Heath and in the Club Stableford, Charles Crabb had the best score with 41 points, with Neil Duffy 2nd with 39.
