The mixed match against Cambridge Menzies on Saturday, September 18, resulted in a 5-2 victory, with the home advantage paying off on this occasion.

The seniors played in five matches during the last fortnight, the first away to Stoke by Nayland, on September 15, where they lost 6-2. However, they bounced back for their home match against Bury St Edmunds on Friday, September 17, with a 7˝-˝ win.

The September IFF Challenge was played on Wednesday, September 22. The overall winner, with a fabulous nett 65, was Dave Cohen and as a result his handicap has been reduced by two shots to 11.

Haverhill’s end of season Junior Skills Challenge was held on Tuesday, August 31, which was attended by 19 juniors.

Head professional Paul Wilby said: "After the success of the earlier challenge in June, it was great to see another good turnout. The rate of progression of our juniors at the golf club has been phenomenal, and they have enjoyed a very successful summer."

The challenge was based on short game, mid game and long game skills, with accuracy and consistency being the most important factors.

The results were: Division One (0-12 handicap), 1 Liam Merritt, 2 Richard Boyles. Division Two (13-28) 1 James Higham, 2 Ellis Brown. Division Three (29+) 1 Edward Halpin, 2 Joel Walter-Smith.
