Little Hay Golf Club held its Captain’s Day on Saturday in aid of captain Mick Whelan’s chosen charities – Breast Cancer Care and Prostate Cancer UK. There were three separate competitions, one for ladies and two for men from the blue and white tees.

Winner off the blue tees was Steve Vass with a commanding 42 Stableford points. Second was Ivan Lawrence with 41 points and third was Nick Jefferson with 40.

From the white tees the winner was George Rocca with a great score of 43 points just ahead of Robbie McIvor with 42 points and Luke Wrathall with 37.

The leading lady was Dorcas Kindinger with 40 points, second was Yvette Essen with 36 and third was Linda Cusick with 35.

Earlier in the week the ladies held their qualifying competition for the National Ping four-ball better ball tournament which is run by England Golf. The result was a tie on 43 Stableford points, with the winners decided on count-back. Linda Cusick and Jackie Joslyn came out on top and Hee-Young Crowhurst and Rachel Austin were second.

Players with the top 60 scores in the country will go to the Grand Final and the next 72 will enter the Plate Final – both to be held at Gainsborough Golf Club in Lincolnshire.

On Thursday the Senior Men played a home match against Rickmansworth which ended in an honourable 3-3 draw.
