IT WAS a busy time for Broadway Golf Club’s ladies as they competed in their England Golf Medal and Scratch Salver competitions.
The day began on a cool note and there was a tricky breeze to contend with which made scoring tough but, with the course playing superbly, ladies enjoyed the challenge.
The Scratch Salvers were first presented in 1966 and were awarded for the best gross score in each of the silver and bronze divisions.
In the silver division, Linda Carruthers brought in a tremendous 82 gross on the day to win the trophy, with Lin Andrew runner-up with 87 gross.
Bronze division’s salver winner was Esther Pettitt with an impressive 99 gross, ahead of runner-up Veronica Rudd with 102.
Andrew won the silver division top Medal position with an impressive 77 nett, leaving Jenny Brindley second with 78. In the bronze division, Pettitt took a superb first place with 72 nett ahead of Bev Howard who was a worthy second with 79.
At the weekend the youngsters stepped out with their usual eagerness to take on the course in their Junior Captain’s Cup, donated in 1990 by former member Paul Stephens and his family soon after he had been Broadway’s junior captain.
Sonny Nangle made things look easy with an impressive 47 points to claim the trophy. Max Carter was runner-up with 46 and Ambrose Eaves was third with 45.
Twins Kyle and Ryan Wright both earned 44 points to finish fourth and fifth respectively.
The division one and two Medals were next on the agenda and, with the course continuing to play superbly and the weather gloriously sunny, 86 competitors were treated to perfect conditions.
In division one, juniors captain Scott Davis found fine form with a tremendous 66 nett to take top spot. Mick Sandalls was second with 68 nett, ahead of third-placed Peter Azizi with 69.
In Division Two, Stuart Storrer earned an impressive 69 nett to seal first place, ahead of Andy Campbell who clinched second with 71. Dan Lamb was third with 72 nett.
