John Glen, William Wingfield Digby, Richard Butler and John Rowland took second place from Stuart Sinclair, Dave Hawkins, Theo Ziffo and Adrian Cobb coming in third.

There were prizes for a variety of skill shots too with, in the men’s, Mervyn Hardman winning nearest the pin on the sixth, John Rowland nearest in two on the 12th and Ken Arlett hitting the straightest drive on the 16th.

For the ladies’, Lesley Shurman was nearest the pin on the fourth, Sue Jenkins nearest the pin in two on the 12th and Michelle Tandy hitting the straightest drive on the 16th.

The Badgemore Park team was Sylvine Andrews, Carol Searle, Jocelyn Brown and Sarah Deriaz. The ladies’ section also played the second and third of four Oxfordshire Mid-Silver League scratch matches, losing 4-1 away to Bicester but securing the two points with the following home victory of 3-2.
