Winter Comp Rd 8 / Dukes Eclectic Rd 4
With the forecast predicting heavy rain in the afternoon, the ladies were hoping for a speedy round to get them in before then and the sunny and blue skies at the start appeared to indicate that the weathermen had got it wrong again. Sadly this was not the case and the day deteriorated, along with the ladies’ scores, into a very cold, windy and finally wet day.
Only two of the ladies managed a score in the 30s, and winning her first individual competition was Tenesi Karakaneva with 32 points, followed one point behind by Deborah Potter. Well done ladies!
This was the final round of the Duke’s Eclectic and there was no change to the scores from the previous round. So Sheena Harrington maintained the lead she had held through each round to win by three shots from Val Riziotis.
A frosty start gave variable bounce but this gave way to a chill wind and for later competitors the forecasted rain. So conditions overall tough on Duke’s.
A fine 37 points gave victory to Graham Terry who earns a handicap reduction to 19 with Winter Comp contender Danny Deprez 2nd on 35.
The score in the final round didn’t alter previous positions in the Winter Competition and so Jay Barker is confirmed as the winner – well done Jay! Second is Ed Henery.
Some consolation for Ed however in winning the Duke’s Eclectic on 66.5 from Mike Shabani 67.5 and Danny 68.
Cash prizes are awarded for the overall Winter Comp and both Eclectics following a computation by Nick our treasurer.
Winter Comp Rd 7 / Princes Eclectic Rd 4
The day morphed from a grey start to a sunny afternoon and the ladies had evidently heard the weather forecast with a good turnout for the last round of the Princes’ Eclectic. Using her new clubs to good effect, Cheryl Woodhouse was the day’s winner on 36 points, with Jayne Maxwell in 2nd place on 34 points, Deborah Potter was a further 3 points behind in 3rd place, but scored a good 20 points on the back 9 – Have you solved that putting conundrum at last Deborah??
As expected and reported two weeks ago, Val Riziotis maintained her lead to win the Prince’s Eclectic with a net 68, and the chasing pack led by Jayne only managed to gain one shot on her, to give her a winning lead of five shots. A pretty emphatic victory – well played Val.
The day developed into a very pleasant early Spring day with much sunshine that continued to bathe the clubhouse well after play. The grass might just be beginning to grow again but conditions underfoot were variable reflecting rain a few days previously.
Two fine rounds of 39 points headed the leader-board with Martin Heinrich the winner from Nigel Gaymond on count back. One point behind with an excellent four over par 72 was James Barker.
In the associated Winter Competition with just one round left it looks like a 5 horse race with James Barker now leading on 114 with Ed hennery 113, Danny Deprez 112, Martin 111 and Mike Shabani 110.
The winner of the Prince’s Eclectic is Paul Brown 60 from Jon Cooper 62.5. Well done Captains!
Monthly Medal / Team Event
A gorgeous sunny day saw seven ladies do battle in a team game involving two teams of four (including one mystery player). The results could not have been closer. Both teams scored 57 points over 18 holes, both teams scored 33 points on the back 9, both teams scored 14 on the back 3. Only on the last hole could they be separated with Tenesi’s 4 for 4 trumping Alison’s 4 for 3.
The winning team of Val, Tenesi, Doreen and Jayne (mystery player) were rewarded with brightly coloured thermal socks. The others did not depart empty handed as the Lady captain in anticipation of Valentine’s Day rewarded them with chocolate heart lollipops.
A sunny late winter day after a drying wind all week provided good opportunities for scoring. Ed Henery came out top to win the medal on 71, two ahead of Pete Harrison with Jim Fogarty and Paul Brown one shot further back.

Winter Comp Rd 6 / Princes Eclectic Rd 3
The cold and wind made the conditions decidedly unpleasant along with similar results for most of the ladies. Val Riziotis, however, seemed completely unaffected by it, taking first place with 35 points, some seven points ahead of Tenesi Karakaneva. With CSS coming down to 35, the rest of the field received a 0.1 back on their handicaps.
As might be expected with such a result, Val is also still leading the Eclectic after three rounds. She will take some beating in the last round, extending her lead of one to 6 shots from Jayne Maxwell in second place.
A cold penetrating northerly wind set the scene for the day with only a slow amelioration. Nevertheless, there were some good scores returned with Martin Heinrich the winner on 40 points. Crisp and accurate play earned Peter Harrington 2nd place on 39 points with new Cap’n Paul Brown two points further back.
Martin’s 40 was handy in the overall Winter Competition where he now has a four point advantage on 116 from Danny Deprez and Ed Henery.
The round was the penultimate for the Prince’s Eclectic and Paul leads by 1.5 on 64 from Ed.
