Royston Golf Club round-up
IT was a good weekend for Royston Golf Club as both the men’s and ladies’ teams recorded 4-1 victories in their respective Daily Mail competitions at the weekend.
The men took on John O’Gaunt Golf Club after beating Bishop’s Stortford away in the last round. Adrian Shoebridge captained the men’s side of Stuart Phillips, Adam Woods, Richard Howorth and Mark Rogers.
The ladies played East Herts on Sunday and, despite the showery weather, earned a comfortable win thanks to the play of Sarah Buckerfield, Emma Logan, Denise Moody, Jenny Jarvis and Mary Mitchell.
The Sunday morning competition was won by Men’s captain, Barry Buckerfield and past captain, Colin Swallow, with an excellent score of 43 points, but they secured victory by the narrowest of margins having a better back six holes over Derek Hayden and Tony Blatchford.
