Stableford success for Melton Golf Club’s Bev

Twenty Melton Mowbray Golf Club competitors required to the course for the midweek stableford competition, and some great ratings were returned.The total winner

was Bev Blake, with 38 points.In second was Paul Blount with 37 points, pipping Adrian Green on countback.The 2s sweep was shared by Paul Blount with a 2 on the par-three seventh and Sam Pollard on the par-three 14th. In the County Mixed Foursomes, Melton Mowbray took a trip to face Charnwood Forest.The Girl Captain showed up to want all the very best to the group, however they were not able to overturn the home benefit and the Charnwood team used their knowledge of their course to good benefit. The pairing of Vice Captain Gerry Stephens and Girl Vice Captain Nancy Denny were 6 down by the 10th and combated back to 4 down.But for a couple of

missed out on putts they might have closed the space further.It was a similar story for the second pairing of John Harvey and Leah Radford, who were 7

down at one point.Charnwood came out on top, winning both matches with ratings of 4 up.Gerry thanked Charnwood’s Captain and their players after the match for their exceptional hospitality and exceptional condition of their course.The B team dealt with Stapleford Park with a few of Melton’s regular players unavailable.With the course playing long and in great condition, Melton understood it would not be simple getting a result away from house against their regional rivals.However, everybody played their part and the result was an outstanding 4.5-0.5 win.The points originated from Billy Kevan and Alan Newton(2 up), Brian Cole and Bob Luke (2 & 1), Andy Blunt and Kev Robertson( 2 & 1 ), team captain Steve Wright and Phil Curtis(8 & 6). Costs Hurrell and Richard Grieve achieved halved. * Melton Golf Club’s C group hosted Toft GC in a brand-new

component for the group following the recent closure of Park Hill.Under clear blue skies, both groups took pleasure in a course in spectacular condition. Melton put in a number of great efficiencies in a comfortable 5-1 win, significantly from Dave Bailey and Andy Pedlar who won 8 and 7, and the pairs of Keith Tomblin and Ady Stokes, and Nigel Blunt with Mark Lewis who both won 4 and 3. Toft will guarantee a sterner test on the return visit later in the year.
