The Mixed Open, in which a man and a woman from any club, partner each other and play a better ball Stableford competition, was held at the end of August.

The results were:

Mark and Julie Griffiths (Stanedge) 40 points, Chris and Ann Turner (Shirland) 39 points, Joe Whittaker and Ruth Rastrick (Stanedge) 39 points and Sam Griffiths and Eleanor Rastrick (Stanedge) 38 points.

Last weekend the Ladies and Gents Invitation was held.

On the Saturday the weather was blustery but on the Sunday when many of the ladies played there was rain.

The Gents winners were the very last men’s pair in and their performance was of particular note as they had the worst of the weather.

Ladies: 1st Denise Guard and Sue Young (Chesterfield) 32 points, 2nd Val Corker and Shiela Mitchell (Bakewell) 31 point, 3rd Chris Norclliffe and Gill Watson (Chatsworth) 30 points. Nearest the pin: Irine Bent (Matlock).

Gents: 1st Mark Griffiths and Steve Johnson (Grassmoor) 43 points, 2nd Pat Cliffe and Stuart Jarvis (Matlock) 42 points, 3rd Pete Yeomans and Steve Davis (Tapton) 41 pointsNearest the pin: Ray Ramsamooj (Tapton).
