ULLESTHORPE Court golfers Alison Horak and Lynn Jones were handicap runners-up in the women’s Midlands North Foursomes Championship at Scraptoft GC with their 154 net aggregate over 36 holes.
The scratch and the handicap trophies were both won by Leicestershire competitors – county first team golfer Sarah Haslum and her Longcliffe clubmate Suzanne Pretty.
They carded 75-82 rounds for their 157 gross to win the Scratch Salvers and took the Challenge Cups with their 145 net total.
There was a field of 60 from the six competing counties for this regional event.
MARKET Harborough GC members have competed for three different trophies, one of which was awarded for each of three different handicap divisions. They were the Banks, Wilson and Kimbell cups.
Paul Bracegirdle led division one with his +4 return while Steve Campbell, +2, was second, Vincent Bromley, +1, third. Paul O’Brien topped division two after a tie on +2 with Tim Orton, second. Kevin McHenry, +1, finished third.
Martin Dare headed division three after a three-way tie on -2 – decided on local rule – with Peter Chapman second and Simon Tilley third.
LUTTERWORTH GC’s Saturday Winter League has been won by Andy Potts and Alan Brennan. Steve Moonan and Chris Wormleighton were the runners-up.
Mike Perry and Nigel Pearce; and Michael King and Kevin Green were the losing semi-finalists.
A foursomes medal has also been completed at Lutterworth for the Saxon Cup. This went to Barry Galpin and Steve Davenport with their 84-17-67 return.
Nick and Karl Jones (85-16-69) were the runners-up from Mike Perry and Steve Hardy, 70.5 net. Simon Jackson and Martyn Davies (81-10-71) finished in fourth spot.
The scratch prize went to Andy Pope and Neil Angell with their 78 round.
COLD Ashby women members had a Joker 3 competition.
This was won by Sally Hill with 21 points after a tie with Dawn Mallard-Parker, second, with Jayne Neale, 20pts, third.
THE final county golf Alliance meeting of the 2011/12 season – the 36-holes championship – at Kirby Muxloe had to be called off because of wet weather.
It meant that on several greens which were waterlogged after torrential overnight rain it was not possible for the pins to be placed.
So it was a disappointing end to the highly successful campaign. But two issues were decided before the championships – the professional and amateur orders of merit.
Matthew Cort (Rothley Park) had dominated the pro medal awards and it was no surprise when he topped the pro section with his 108pts total. This saw him in the winner’s circle nine times, eight of these outright.
Craig Shave (Whetstone) with 85 pts was runner-up with Matt Stephens (Kirby Muxloe), 48.5, third, Matt Whelband (Park Hill), 44pts, fourth and Bob Larratt (Kibworth), 43pts, fifth.
Two Cosby members led the amateurs chart. Darren Anderson, with 66pts, was first from clubmate Mick Wells, 50.
There was a four-way tie for third on 48pts featuring Mick Remington and Julian Harris (both Glen Gorse), Mark Frankham (Lutterworth) and John Hardwick (Rothley Park). Graham Cross (Kirby Muxloe), 40pts, was seventh, with two on 38pts tied eighth, Dennis Hewitt (Scraptoft) and another Glen Gorse amateur Steve Hemmings.
No decision has been announced on whether or not it will be possible for the alliance championship to be rearranged.
