Dickie’s top fourball form

Jeff ‘Dickie’ Grant might be in hot
demand as a fourball partner following his
winning efforts over recent weeks.
After his success with Bob Landy to take
out the recent Winter Classic, he continued
the form on Saturday, teaming up with
George Willis to win the fourball best ball
event.
They had 49 points, two clear of Geoff
Corboy and Kevin Reeves, with a further
shot to third placegetters Laurie Hughes and
Rob Armytage.
On Sunday the mixed foursomes was
played, with Graeme Willoughby and Pauline
Davis taking the handicap trophy with
70.5, on countback from Barry and Jayne
Barlow. Scratch went to Brian Bourke and
Kerran Leetham with 79.
Nearly 50 players braved a cold Wednesday
for the stableford event. Gary Davies
had 38 to defeat in-form Barry Barlow by a
shot in A Grade, while Wayne Jamieson
scored 39 to win B grade, from James Rhook
on 37.
Last Thursday the ladies played their
foursomes championship, with 18 and 27
hole events. Both the 27 and 18 hole
handicap winners were Ali Ferguson and
Gayle Beckton with 74 nett, and 27 hole
scratch winners were Kerran Leetham and
Vicki Brunker with 135.
