TAFF Geraghty has won the Division Two medal at Royston Golf Club.
His red figure score of nett 66, four under par, saw him clinch a place in the medal winners' final in October.
Bill Sandford continues to play well and his 68 took the runners-up spot ahead of the improving Neil Van der Merwe who shot a 69.
Division One was won by Simon Thompson. The 11 handicapper was the only player to break par and his nett 68 pushed James McKenzie in to second place, although he had the consolation of winning the scratch prize. Late starter Trevor Sweeting finished third with a nett 70.
Alan Saunders won the Saturday stableford with 38 points ahead of a trio of players who scored 37. Craig Holson took second place on count back ahead of Keith Spencer and Dick Parsons.
The midweek golfers held their first stableford of the year and in tough conditions Gerry Squires scored 41 points to lead the field. Mike Taylor was the only other player to break his handicap with 38. John Humphreys finished third.
Gary Noble won the Thursday medal with a nett 70. Although the greens were in fantastic condition, the change of wind direction made the course much harder than normal. Noble's playing partner Barrie Parsons was runner-up.
The Saturday medal was won by 23 handicapper Keith Spencer who hit a nett 66. Darren Messenger continues to improve though his nett 68 was not quite enough to see his handicap reach single figures for the first time. The ever consistent Chris Little was third with a nett of 70.
The golfers were greeted by bright skies on Sunday morning for the Men's fourball stableford and despite the heavy overnight rain the course was matched by some fantastic scores.
An incredible back nine of 25 points saw Graham Cartwright and Tony Blatchford win on countback from Bob Turner and Simon Thompson. Both pairs finished with 42 points.
Cartwright was the stalwart of the partnership contributing 21 points on seven holes, with four birdies in the last five holes.
