BBC presenter a guest at golfers' open day

Wednesday, 6th October 2010.

Haverhill Golf Club hosted their Men’s Invitation Day on Saturday, September 25, with BBC Look East's Stewart White among the guests.

Winning the fourball better ball event with 41pts were Michael Warren and his guest Robert Cramsie. In second place with 40pts was Simon Iron and his guest H Craven and in third place with 39pts on countback Steve Nichols and his guest, Glyn Davies, who just edged out Haverhill’s head professional Paul Wilby and his guest Michael Duley into fourth place.

Robert Cramsie was in fine form, winning nearest the pin on hole 16 and the longest drive on hole 10. Lynford Brown won nearest the pin on hole two and nearest the pin in two on hole 18 was Simon Iron.

Stewart White was the guest of Haverhill vice-president Dennis Harkness and the pair finished just out of the prizes with 38pts.

The end of September saw the conclusion of three ‘major’ knockout events. The Mugs Cup is for those with handicaps above 18, yet to win a major. The second is the Signpost Paints Cup, a scratch matchplay competition and finally the Spencer Woods Cup, a matchplay event with a handicap limit of 18.

Robert Haylock played against Roger Hartley in the final of the Mugs Cup and won comfortably 3&1.

Chris Vince secured his victory in the Signpost Paints Cup by beating Paul Houchen and Gordon Price won the Spencer Woods Cup after defeating Duncan Galloway in the final.

The men’s September Medal was played on Sunday 26th, with Gerry Scott just winning on countback with a fabulous nett 66, from Gary Webb. As a result both have reduced their handicaps by one shot.

The full results were: Division one, 1 Gerry Scott 73-7-66; 2 Stuart King 82-12-70; 3 Peter Driscoll 82-11-71.

Division Two, 1 Gary Webb 85-19-66; 2 Jonathan Wiseman 85-17-68; 3 Kim Ward 83-13-70.

Division Three, 1 Daniel Allen 99-27-72; 2 Graham Hepworth 94-21-73; 3 Steve Bush 97-24-73.

The ladies played two friendly matches last week. The first was at home against Stowmarket on September 28, where the visitors managed to secure a convincing 3-1 win. The ladies recovered admirably the following day by winning their home match against Newmarket by 3˝-˝.

The seniors played in a tough away match against Stowmarket on Tuesday, September 28, where they lost 3-5, however they were back to winning ways at home on Friday, October 1, where they won 5˝-2˝ against Ely City.

The ladies medal was played on Saturday, October 2, with Sue Carr just claiming the victory by one shot with a score of 89-12-77. In second place was Mary Sail with a score of 94-16-78 and Pat Kennedy finished in third place with a score of 96-18-78.

On Sunday, October 3, the first of the Winter Alliance weekend fixtures took place at Rushmere Golf Club. Losing his playing partner to illness only hours before teeing off did not stop Haverhill's Glynn Carroll recording an early success after a last-minute pairing with Stoke by Nayland member, Peter Jiggens.

The pair returned 41 stableford points, just edging out the Stoke team of John Partridge and Chris Clark on countback. A further point back in third spot was Glen Davis (Waldringfield) and Steve Gray (Hintlesham), while Rob Pritchard (Cretingham) captured the professional prize.

Glynn's victory gives him a place among the early leaders in the Alliance Merit League which runs through to March 2011.
