9H Singles

Course Manager Martin Ishmael claimed is second 9h title in 3 years after defeating Graham Ball 4 & 3 in the final. It was hard luck on Graham whose great form during the Summer deserted him on the day. Graham made it to the final having overcome last years winner Nick Eden in a thrilling semi-final that was only decided on the 3rd extra hole.

After narrowly edging out Bill LeDrew on the first extra hole of round one it was rather easy going for Martin as he eased past both Richard Ishmael 4&2 in round 2 and Paul Sinker by the same margin in the semi-final.

9H Fourball Better Ball

Competitors were a little down in this event and with only 5 pairs entering it was decided to have a mini league with all pairs playing each other once and the top 2 progressing to an 18h final. This worked rather well in the end and was enjoyed by all. It proved to be a tight league with Roger and Nick Eden progressing to the final with 7 points after recording 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss. They were met by Gavin Harrison and Harold Davenport who also finished on 7 points. They both edged out Nick Thoday and Graham Ball who finished third on 6 points.

Despite losing the corresponing match over 9 holes in the league format, it was 2011 winners Roger and Nick Eden who came out on top in the 18h final with a 3&2 victory.

Thank you to all competitiors and congratulations to our three 2013 matchplay champions.
