The Junior division result was much closer but Paul Grand just held his nerve to finish 2 ahead of Tony Archdale on 177 with Peter Cunningham taking 3rd position on 181.
Round 2 saw Peter Harrington on top with 68 net, one ahead of Toby Hunt and two ahead of Peter Cunningham.
Peter Harrington’s consistency over the two rounds saw him winner of the Net Handicap prize, one ahead of Peter Cunningham.

Rickmansworth – Home Leg
Result: 2Â½ – 3Â½ Loss
The first (home) leg of this year’s match against Rickmansworth Golf Club took place on an afternoon of sunshine and heavy showers. Kerry Sargeant and Graeme Syme had an easy win (6&5) but the other five matches were very closely fought affairs that, with different play on the 18th hole, could have seen us take a 4-2 lead, rather than a 1 point deficit, to the away leg. The Dysart Arms was the venue for the after match dinner.
Anyone who would like to play in the return match at â€˜Tricky Ricky’ on August 18th , and help us retain the trophy we won last year, should get their name down when the sheet appears in a few weeks time.

Whitewebbs Team A against Bird Hills
Team A were dumped out of the Ladies’ Whitewebbs competition in their second round match at Bird Hills GC on Saturday.
Whitewebbs – Team A Rd 1 at Bird Hills
Result: 4-1 Loss
We played our second round match of the White Webbs on Saturday 16th at Bird Hills near the very pretty village of Holyport.
Unfortunately we were beaten convincingly 4-1 with our only success being Lorna who gave 20 shots but still managed to win her game. Well done Lorna!! and thanks to Maureen, Ros L and Veronica for playing for the team.
In form Richard Kenwood emerged the clear winner with 37 points, returning 21 points on the back nine with a â€˜blob’. Francois Lemaigre and Tim Meyer put up spirited efforts with the latter no doubt rue scoring just one point in the last two holes.
CSS was elevated to 36 points from SSS 35 resulting in just one handicap change in the week before the Club Championship, with Tony Archdale now playing off 17. Men’s handicap list…
Currently in a good run of form, Sheena Harrington won the Stableford competition with 38 points, one ahead of Norma Lynch in 2nd place.
The CSS remained at 37 pts so Sheena’s handicap decreased by 0.3, sadly not enough to affect her playing handicap.
