1st – George Taylor – 37 points.
2nd – Christina Baxter – 36 points.
3rd – Bob Catchpole – 35 points.
4th Tom Greaves – 33 points.
3rd – Tony Norman.
5th – Chris Rodgman.

Mike Gower Memorial Competition
Wednesday, 15th September
Di Gower presented the Mike Gower Memorial Decanter to winner Anne March
This competition was played several weeks ago, but the results were held over to allow Di Gower to present the trophy after the Denis Culpeck event. The trophy was presented by the family and we are very grateful to them, and to Di for being with us. Mike was a popular and respected member of the club and is very much missed. Several people added their own poignant words and stories to those made by Di and it was very obvious that Mike was held in the highest esteem by all who knew him.
This was a “one off” event and the winner keeps the trophy. Entry fees from the day, and money raised from the collection, will go to Addenbrooke’s Hospital.
1st – Anne March – 41 points – ocb.
2nd – Terry Stenchen – 41 points – ocb.
3rd – John Harrison – 40 points.
3rd – David Gough.
5th – Ron Harris.
7th Roy Wilson.
13th – Ron Harris.
16th (in 2) – Ray Clark.
Thanks to all who took part in either event.
Secretary – Senior Section.

Wyboston Seniors (Home) vs Brampton Seniors
Wednesday 22nd September 2021
What a shock yesterday was following the two previous matches at Pavenham and Elton Furze whose courses were in pristine condition.
Earlier in the week the greens had been hollow tined, something that’s a necessary evil and we have to live with. But why did Wyboston greenkeepers choose to apply the sand to the greens (and I mean sand and more sand) during our match? On some greens there was 10mm of sand, as players walked their footprints were left in the sand. Can you imagine what a farce this made of the putting. The song made famous in the 60’s by the Shangri-La’s sprang to mind ‘Walking on the sand’!!
Fortunately the Brampton players took the situation with good grace but from a Wyboston point of view it was a total embarrassment and all we could do was apologise.
The day was not all bad news, the weather was fine and the company excellent. The restaurant staff once again did us proud and the Lasagna lunch was very well received and Wyboston Seniors won 6 – 2.
Unfortunately we found out that Savana, one of the regular restaurant waitresses is leaving, which is a great shame. Savana has always gone well beyond what is normally expected to help us enjoy our lunches and I wish her all the luck in the future, let’s hope her replacement is half as good.
Next week is our final match of the season against Elton Furze, hopefully by then the sand will have ‘settled’, ‘Johnboy’ is our Captain so lets go out in style with another win.
