Have your say

GREETHAM Valley’s Limestone Trophy, the final honours board competition of the club’s 2010 calendar, was won by Tony Mould.

Playing off the white tees, the 10-handicapper won with a gross score of four over and earned himself a cut to 9.

Tony then began the 2011 season by winning the Anniversary Trophy, which is a Stapleford played off whites with more than 120 members competing.

Tony got off to a good start, parring the first three holes, but dropped two on the fourth. But he regained his composure to par the next nine holes. A birdie on the 14th was followed by a par 15th and dropped shots on the tricky 16th. A par 17th and one over on the 18th left him with a winning 41 points and another cut in his handicap, to 8.

The next three players all scored 40 and had to be separated by countback. Neil Chatterton took second and David Samler took third with the unlucky Dave Pusch pushed back into fourth.

Showing how hotly contested the competition was, the next eight competitors all scored 39 points with another eight on 38.

l GREETHAM Valley’s mixed team won their first match of the year, beating Kibworth 4.5 -1.5.

Played off yellow tees, the score did not reflect the closeness of the games as five out of the six pairings were only decided on the last hole.

Geoff Woolley and Jackie Friend halved their game, Jim Wheeler and Eileen Pare, Ian Cunningham and Glynnis Sellars, Mike Pare and Helen Woolley all won 1 up. Michael Fish and Rena Lister won 4 and 2, and Neil Sellars and Angela Wheeler lost 2 down.
