Farrington Park Seniors: Our few days of October sunshine was very welcome but sadly now a distant memory. The evenings are closing in and winter rules are already in place at golf courses around the country.

The final qualifying medal competition of the season attracted an entry of sixty three players on a lovely sunny morning with only light rain forecasted for the latter part of the day.

Our final friendly match of the season was a visit to Knowle Golf Club where as well as enjoying a  truly delicious carvery, an away win of 5-2 was the icing on the cake! Well actually it was apple crumble and custard… delicious! 


First division: Jim Lunt 67, Mike Bradbury 69, Steve Ball 69, Dave Millington 70, John Butler 70.

Second division: Geoff Clare 71, Steve Banfield 71, Steve Cockle 71, Geoff Cabral 72, Phil Bryant 72.

Third division: Roger Stone 66, Laurence Barlow 67, Andrew Jeffery 69, Martin Stevens 72, John Palmer 73.

Nearest the pin on 8th was Gary Auld, on 14th was Steve Banfield.

There were four players who had a ‘2’ but unfortunately two of those did not enter the two’s competition. Mike Hedges and Steve Ball therefore benefitted to the tune of £21 each.
