Haverhill’s Peter Garner and Keith Donno reached the Regional Finals of the Howdidido National Matchplay Championship 2011.

The pair had qualified through three previous matches having beaten pairs from Gog Magog, St Ives and Burghley Park. Peter and Keith were drawn to play at Brampton Park on Saturday, September 24, against a pair from Brampton Park.

Their opponents, Simon Barns, playing off a handicap of two and Stuart Miller, playing off a handicap of six, proved too strong for the Haverhill pair, who unfortunately lost the match 4&3.

Paul Houchen and Andy Fish took part in the National Final of the International Pairs at Wychwood Park, Cheshire on Friday, September 30.

Sadly they didn’t manage to repeat the form they had shown in the practice round the previous day, but Andy stated: "The set-up for the final was tough and there was no room for error, on a course over 7,000 yards off the whites. The quality of the golf course and venue at Wychwood was second to none and we very much enjoyed the experience."

Haverhill member Dave Quinney won the Gog Magog Club Championship (Woodhead Cup) on Sunday, September 25. Quinney, who is also a member at The Gogs, had to pre-qualify the previous weekend for the top 16, who then progressed into the matchplay draw.

The first two stages of the knockout matches were played on Saturday, September 24, and he made it through to the semi-finals to be played the following day.

After a very close match in his semi-final, winning on the 19th, Quinney went onto meet Steve Jarvis in the final, where he claimed overall victory by just 1up. Quinney completed the hat-trick as he has won this event three years in succession.
