Club Competitions in the Northern part of the county


Countback was required in two of the three divisions of the October Sunday Stableford as the Kettering members battled it out for the first prizes.

Christopher Woolls won the high-handicapper category from Tareeq Manji with 41 points, while Lee Cobbold (40) edged out Ady Starmer in second division. Jamie Ashcroft (37) enjoyed a three-point victory in the top section.

In the Norman Liddington Trophy, Asif Manji’s tally of 38 points helped clinch first position by one from Nick Howell and Sean Suddards.

Priors Hall

Sean Feeley was the only player to beat the Priors Hall course in the Bogey Cup as he took the honours by finishing three holes up.

The Champion of Champions event on the same day saw Phill Albutt grab the plaudits by one from Jim Collins with a net 71.

John Lenaghan was successful in the October Seniors Medal as a net 71 secured a four shot victory from Pat Annand and Gerry Parton.

Overstone Park

Kevin Heap produced an outstanding round of net 62 in the Overstone Park October Mid-week Medal as the high-handicapper finished eight shots clear of Richard Kearney and Wayne Cockerill, who won divisions one and two respectively.

It was a similar story for Dan Barney in the October White Tee Stableford as his tally of 45 points was four better than second division leader Rob Butler could manage.

Scoring wasn’t quite as good in the October Nine-hole Stableford a few days later as Hisham Al-Hadi’s total of 19 points was enough to secure a narrow win from David Godwin.


High-handicapper Alan Masser won the Rushden October Medal by two strokes from Andrew Talbot after shooting net 70.

The October Stableford went to Owen Roberts (35 points) by one from Scott Carter and Andy Allen, while Richard Wilcox (36) enjoyed the same margin of victory in the Seniors Stableford.
