GOLF: Captains take centre stage at Enmore Park

THE Enmore Park Captains’ Drive In, postponed from the previous weekend, took place on Sunday when 22 pairs enjoyed the glorious sunshine.

At the end of a keenly-contested competition the eventual winners with 41 points were Seniors Captain Peter Scott and his partner Ladies President Anne Weston.

Second place was claimed by Patrick Vearncombe and Bev Broad with 40 while GIlmour Thomson and Mel Millar with 39 claimed third spot on countback.

Past captain Mike Rossiter was the winner of the Mayor/Bouverie Cup – played on a wonderful sunny day – which attracted 115 entries. The past captain enjoyed a dream round of gross 72 net 66 with just 23 putts to win only his third trophy in 46 years! Jack Wright with nett 68 was second. Only nine of 115 entries beat net par.

The Bank Holiday 4BBB competition was won by Martin Innalls (who plays off a handicap of 1) and Paul Windsor (12) with 46 points, second place went to  Dean Holman (19) and Marcus Butler (18) with 44 on count back ahead of Anthony Ashton (7) and Andrew Burns (9) who returned with the same score.

The new members’ 9 hole Texas Scramble, also on Monday saw some outstanding scores with the winning team comprising of  Club Captain, Phil Hodge, Joe Casson and Matt Newstead, who were just one shot ahead of Martyn Clapp (Chairman), Nick Thompson and Les Dewdney.

Enmore Ladies travelled to Wedmore for a league match where they claimed the spoils, with two wins and two halved matches.

Having to give 15 shots, Bev Broad did extremely well to clock up a half point. The only team member to receive shots, tail end Anne Elliot Rose clocked up another win.

Later in the week the team enjoyed a match at Cannington where after loaning captain-elect Jackie Woodman to the opposition the hosts narrowly won a most enjoyable and sociable match.

Enmore Seniors entertained the men of Mendip Golf Club and came out victorious for this first time this season.  John Newell and David Robbins  won the opening game, before Enmore captain Peter Scott and his partner Howard Mathers won their contest.

Carl Netto and Chris Wilsteed won their match and with the final game halved Enmore were victorious.

Later in the week the Seniors then went to Weston super Mare, where despite victories for Nigel Wixon and Mike Sullivan as well as Peter Scott and Kevin Lewis the match was won by the hosts.
