Poor weather ensured that Gorleston Golf Club’s Maddock Tankard fourball competition was postponed for a further week.

The Ladies’ Section were able to play their Divisional Stableford followed by traditional sausage rolls and mince pies.

In Division One Pauline Phillips was first with a super 39 points with Jackie Walsh second with 36 points. Division Two; Vera Woolnough 35 points on countback from Maureen Duckett; Division Three: Andree Bloomfield 35 points with the ladies’ president Thelma Evans, second with 31 points.

Following this competition Vonnie Thornton presented representatives of the East Coast Hospice with a cheque for £2,520, being the money raised by the Ladies’ Section towards her designated charity for the year.

The winners of the Divisional Stableford on December 21 were: Division One Paul Platten with a great 39 points from Paul Finch, 38 points. Division Two: Tony Bushkes with 37 points with Fred Simeons on 34 points second.

The post Christmas Thursday Stableford was played on temporary greens resulting in some high scoring.

Division One went to Ray Pope with 40 points and in second place was Martin Pestle on 39 points.
