All the Toft ladies who had won a medal competition over the past year came together to compete for the honour of lifting the Medal Winners’ Trophy to crown their achievement.

Mairead Scott produced a fitting round of golf as a finale for her magnificent year and her quality of golf on the day was close to being unbeatable.

Her score of 86-10=net 76 won her first place but Alison Ravenhill fought all the way to come in close behind with a score of 93-16=77.

Viv Stanton was third with 100-20=80.

In the John Larkinson Stableford Competition & Eclectic No 7, 58 members took part in this competition with six players in the frame for second place it turned out to be a hard fought match.

First was Tony Haslam with 40 points, second was Barry Harriman with 36 on countback ahead of third place Nigel Turnbull, fourth place Peter Spencer, fifth place Peter Henderson, sixth place Geoff Parker and seventh place was Ray Bills all with 36 points.

Making up the rest of the top ten was Gordon Rodgers with 35, Mike Paulson with 34 and Clive Gray with 33.

With all the world’s golfing fans recently fixated on the Ryder Cup, where Europe successfully defended their title, the winner of the Toft Qualifying Medal competition in September was Duncan Cameron, whose Great Uncle George Duncan was Ryder Cup Captain of the 1929 team that beat Walter Hagens USA side 7-5 at Moortown Golf Club, Leeds. This was the first time the Ryder Cup had been played inGreat Britain.

Cameron was obviously inspired by his relative’s success and went on to win with a net score of 64 on countback, beating Paul Nicholson into second and David Chappell was third with a net 69.
