BADGEMORE PARK held their open anniversary weekend on Saturday and Sunday.

BADGEMORE PARK held their open anniversary weekend on Saturday and Sunday.

The competition saw teams of four playing a medal format with a three-quarters handicap allowance where the best two net scores counted.

Each day began with a shotgun start with 25 teams taking part on Saturday and 22 teams on Sunday.

There was a putting competition and a separate chipping competition for teams as they passed the halfway hut.

Teams were also challenged to beat the club professional and could double their money winning £10 if they hit their ball nearer the hole on the 13th.

These competitions raised around £1,000 for the captain’s charity, the Scoliosis Association (UK).

The winning team on Saturday, with a score of 130 (eight under), was Greg Cooper (9), John Starkey (7), Cathal Henigan (6) and Tony Potter (12). Sunday was won with 122 (16 under) by Sean Doe (11), Tony Chivers (13), Martin Wilkins (15) and George Beasley (21).

A fourball better ball competition was the format for the ladies’ invitation day played in blustery conditions by 68 players with 23 representing other clubs.

The winners were Christine Ross of Badgemore and Jen Shabani of Mapledurham with 39 points. In second place were Marion Denby and Linda Maher of Winter Hill with 38 points on countback from Rosemary French and Rosemary Ford of Newport Golf Club.

The longest drive was won by Jocelyn Brown for Badgemore, and Hazel Gill for Maidenhead.

Nearest the pin for Badgemore was Dorothy Arlett and Meg Ashby from Huntercombe for the visitors.

At the end of the day £302 was raised for lady captain Sylvine Andrews’ charity, Maidenhead MENCAP.
