JOSE Fernandez-Moure was the clear Division 1 winner in the Midweek Stableford at Caversham Heath.

Fernandez-Moure could even afford to blob the ninth hole and still score 39 points. A birdie on the 12th hole and three threes on the par threes all helped him claim victory.

Stephen Gelsthorpe recorded 17 points on the back nine to come second, on countback from Kevin Whiting, both with 34 points. Whiting had the better front nine, helped by a fine birdie on the second hole.

Division 2 was won by Simon Dicketts with 35 points. A quiet front nine was soon livened up on the back, with 20 points amassed on the inward nine.

Ken Hanson was second, on countback from Michael Busher, both with 34 points. Busher got off to a flying start, with 21 points on the front nine, but he couldn’t quite keep that form going and had to settle for third place.

The ladies’ medal saw yet another win for Lynne Rumbold with net 78. She finished one shot ahead of Sheila Evans and Daphne Barker, with Evans gaining runner-up spot on countback.

Kathy North claimed victory in the ladies’ Stableford (Angela Uzielli qualifier) with 36 points. Runner-up was Fiona Ives with 32 points and third was Jeannette Taylor with 31.

Richard Drury won a nine-hole Stableford with 39 points. Sue Parcell was runner-up, on countback from Andy Holmes and Gareth Ford, all with 38 points.

A junior USPGA open medal was won by Alex Curtis on countback from James Millard, both with net 79. Third was Will Tate with net 81.

The Concorde League team went down to a narrow defeat at home to Studley Wood on Sunday.

The team got off to a perfect start with Matthew Ackerman and Gareth Goodall both winning. Gary King secured a fighting half and Duncan Mee triumphed in the final match, but a 4.5-3.5 defeat means some strong away performances will be needed to lift the title.

A men’s friendly at Ascot saw the team come away with a 3-3 draw. Captain Danny Dover and Carl Bache won 1up with further wins from Mathew Brakspear and Jim McGiveron and Clive Adamson and Barry Reynolds.

The home side responded by winning the final three games for the draw.

The ladies made home advantage tell with a convincing 3-1 win over Mill Ride.

Kjersti Cannon and Sheila Evans got the ball rolling with a two and one victory, Caroline Dover and Anne Smith cruised to a seven and six win, while Angie Adamson and Pam Stapeley also had a comfortable three and two victory.

Danny Dover enjoyed a successful captains’ away day at Basingstoke Golf Club along with other club members.

The 27 players were split into nine three-ball teams as well as playing an individual Stableford. The team prize went to Sam Weller, Steve Wright and Debbie Harris with 102 points.

Individual winner was Sam Weller on countback from Caroline Dover, both with 37 points. Third was Pam Stapeley on countback with 35 points.

The best front nine prize went to Colin Stoute with 22 points, again on countback. The best back nine prize went to Sarah Lau with 20 points.

Nearest the pin prizewinner was Nigel Priestley with Matt Ackerman winning the men’s longest drive and Anne Smith hitting the ladies’ longest drive.
