Nick Plumb squeezed past Trevor Sweeting by one stableford point to lift Royston Golf Club’s Eddie Hughes Memorial Plate.

Plumb carded 42 stableford points with Sweeting agonisingly second in the event where all proceeds go to charity.

The Grace Darling charity stableford competition is another popular event and it was great to see the trophy going to a club junior.

Francis Shilton came out on top with a magnificent 45 points.

Second place went to Simon Bradfield with 41 points while Jeffrey Hunt (40 points) took third.

Meanwhile, Simon Thompson got back to winning ways with victory in the May medal when he carded a six-under par 64 to take first place by one shot from Mark Pearson.

In the Texas Scramble event, where teams of four all play from the best previous shot location, the winners of the gross score competition were the team consisting of Graham Richardson, John Johnson, Will Cooper and Robert Hart with their round of 65.

The nett score winning team was made up of Plumb, Barry Buckerfield, Sarah Buckerfield and Joan Buckerfield.

On Sunday, players enjoyed the warmest day of the year on the Heath and the four-ball better-ball event scores saw only four pairings failing to beat par.

Jon Smith and Dave Shaw were top of the bunch with a combined 45 points score, one point ahead of Glenn Bowles and Keith Jest in second.

In the ladies’ section Carolyn Devaney was the outright winner of the Spring Meeting while Kim Bradfield won the Golf Foundation Brooch with her round of 34 points.

The ladies’ Saturday medal was won by Denise Moody with Tracey Parsons second.

In club matches, the men’s team retained the Royston/Bishops Stortford Challenge Cup thanks to a fine 4-2 away win, with only one pairing losing on the day.

The ladies’ section beat Abbotsley to progress to the next round of the Grace Norman event.
