Tracey Parsons followed up her win in the Flag Competition by leading the Ladies Competition with 34 points, just ahead of Paula Offer. Olivia Davey was third on countback , just edging out Linda Lakey.
Adam Wright won the Junior Medal with a nett 71, just ahead of County under 16 Captain, Jordan Hardwidge.
The juniors also played their first round of the County Knockout Cup at St Ives last week and despite a heroic performance from James Smith and Tom Porter, it was down to the final pairing of Matt Barrett and Daniel Smith, who missed the first extra hole to lose the match.
Junior Captain, Greg Fyson and John Middlemass, recovered well after a poor start, but eventually lost 3&2.
Jenny Jarvis won the Ladies Medal ahead of Val Squires and Mary Wilson.
This week sees the fist major trophy on offer for the Men. The Hastings Cup has attracted an entry of over 100 players, for a trophy that was first played for in 1970.
