THE men’s section at Evesham Golf Club gathered at a sun-bathed Craycombe Links to compete for the Pete Callaghan Trophy.

Now in its fifth year the 18-hole stableford, in memory of the popular ex-member of the club, is a favourite among members with 69 turning out.

The conditions could not have been better with late summer sunshine, little wind and the course presented in the finest of condition resulting in some excellent scores.

The winner of the silver trophy on countback with 44 points was Dave Higgins ahead of Tony Stanley.

In third place was Boz Harris with 41.

The trophy was presented by Pete Callaghan’s sons Mike and Paul who are both members at Evesham.

Twenty-three Evesham seniors turned out for the annual Jubilee Cup.

The competition was a medal off the white tees which always makes scoring well that bit more difficult.

The winner was Alan Askew with nett 69 playing off a handicap of 12.

In second place with 72 was Malcolm Hiscock and in third with 74 was Geoff Wellens.

Evesham seniors lost 5-1 at Bransford.

Although it was dry but overcast Evesham players had their usual trouble negotiating the course while trying to avoid the many lakes and water courses.

Martin Williams and Phil Williams won 3&2 but there were defeats for Ian Wood and Bryan Rogers 2&1, Hiscock and Malcolm Carnall 5&4, Ian Facer and Mick Hocking 4&3, Mike Abraham and Richard Saville 6&4 and Neil Croft and Steve Deakin 4&2.

Evesham ladies played a medal for the Jenny Marston Trophy. 

Margaret Roberts had the round of her life to win with 69 points and top Division Three ahead of Pat Saville on 80.

Division One went to Anne Cowley with 74 from Joan Hunt on 78.

Jean Bevan topped Division Two with 75 ahead of Sally Deakin on 76.

A friendly reverse waltz competition was played in dismal conditions.

The winners with 72 points were Sue Crossley, Annie Bird and Patsy Brumage from Eunice Allen, Sheelagh Crane and Marlene Billings on 71.
