BRANSFORD Golf Club senior section aces Andy Lamb and Andrew Jarvis achieved holes-in-one in a week.

Lamb’s ace came on the Cypress Lakes par three 11th which is 183 yards.

It was almost enough to give him victory in this medal competition but he came up just short with David Ryall hitting a purple patch to secure a two shot winning margin.

The day’s lowest gross score was achieved by Trevor Atkinson with a round of 87, while Neil Holbrow won the nearest the pin prize on the fifth and Geoff Aston on the 15th.

Leading scores: Ryall 91-21=70, Lamb 96-24=72, Atkinson 87-15=72, Rob Wetton 96-23=73, June Atkinson 95-21=74, Martin Linley 95-20=75, Holbrow 88=13=75 and Mark Heason 89-13=76 and Ferey Ghani 92-16=76.

Jarvis used a rescue club to secure what was also his first hole in one which came on the 166 yard par three third - Foxfire.

Playing off 24 Jarvis picked up four points for that but failed to trouble eventual winner Rob Lawrence (28 handicap) who finished with 42 points to his 36.

He was five points ahead of three others - Lee Dyment (20), Allen Rowberry (29) and Rob Wetton (23). Just a point behind this trio on 36 were Alan Wallcroft (24), Mario Eastham (24), then came Jarvis and Roger Steade (29).

Ten-handicapper Pete Anthony won the section’s Order of Merit with 41 points, three ahead of Graham Wilks (18), with David Wild (13) on 37 and then came three other players on 36 - June Atkinson (19), John Phillips (21) and Mike Weaver (20).

A total of 48 members of Bransford Seniors made the trip to the Warwickshire-Gloucestershire border to play in captain Dave Miller’s second Away Day of the season.

With four players tied on 37 points, Gerry Rebbeck won on count-back, pipping Neil Holbrow with 19, and then came Trevor Atkinson with 18 and Mike Weaver 17.

A count-back was also required to decide the team placings after two groups of three had totalled 87. Victory went Mike Murley (32), Chris Cale (35) and Cliff Hayes (32) with Rob Lawrence (34), Ferey Ghani (35) and Dave Ryall (31) the runners-up.

The club’s October Stableford was won by just one point with Joe Pritchard recording 36 points off this 11 handicap to finish just ahead of Dave Lewis (10) and Les Fisher (12) who both had a tally of 35 points.

The Ladies October Medal was won by Pauline Wetton with a score of 100-28=72, with Barbara Ramsden second on 92-14=78.
