Club Competitions in the Southern part of the county


Daniel Haynes has set a new 18-hole course record at Daventry Golf Club after smashing a magnificent seven-under-par 62 in the September Summer Medal.

The three-handicapper, who held the previous best of 64, was in devastating form as he bagged eight birdies on his way to posting two halves of 31 strokes.

Fellow top division player Jack Cooper and high-handicapper John Illingworth finished nine shots adrift of the runaway leader.
