ALDERLEY Edge Golf Club ladies are renowned for their sociability as well as being competitive on the course.

They showed both of these qualities as they began the new season with a match between the Lady Captain’s Team, led by Yvonne Grundy, and the Lady Vice Captain’s team, led by Mary O’Toole, in a greensome competition.

The delighted winners were the LVC team with four wins, two more than the Lady Captain’s team.

The competition was followed by lunch in the clubhouse to which new members were welcomed by the Lady Captain.

Presentations were also made to Helen Williams for winning the Winter League and to Celia Berent for having the four best EWGA medal scores in 2016, with Celia winning an invitation to play in the regional final at Windermere Golf Club.

Edge’s men played a medal in two divisions and in Division One Robert Pindar won a card play-off on 69 from Mike Troup.

Just a shot off their pace were Stephen Lomas, Keith Doyle, Andrew Slater and Nigel Featherstone.

Simon Barber was a clear winner in Division Two with 66 to lead in from Ian Pearce and Andrew Boyle, both 68, and Ron Ricketts, 69.

The Styal Seniors Winter League is nearing its conclusion and in the latest competition Keith Dawson was out on his own with 44 points from Brian Weems, 40, and Phil Moore, 39.

Styal seniors also showed their skills in a four-club stableford and in a tight finish Alan Burns won a cpo on 36 points from David Hollick and John Turtle, with Paul Lawday two points off the pace.

A singles stableford for Styal ladies was taken by Helen Billington with a neat 35 points from Endi Laverty, 33, and Sue Grange and Jenny Merren, both 29.
