JUNIOR members at Little Hay have been making the most of the summer holidays by going head-to-head in weekly competitions.

James Moss won the first of these with a score of 67, seeing off Andrew Varney and Harry Chapman by one shot.

Varney, however, got his revenge on Moss in the next event, cruising to a five-shot victory over his nearest rival. Ben Smit finished in third.

Tom Butler, however, was also on impressive form – the 18-handicapper shooting an even-par gross back nine to suggest his handicap will soon be on its way down.

In the latest competition, George Archer took the spoils – finishing one point clear of Moss and Jake Conroy.

Meanwhile, the ladies took to the course for a better ball Stableford competition at the Ladies’ Invitation Day.

Each lady invited a guest to join them for the tournament, and Alison Marsden and Jane Rimington came out on top with 43 points.

Caroline Banks and Jenny Elliott finished second with 39 points, while Anne Corbett and Pat Barry were a further point back in third.

Trish Clements sent her ball sailing off the tee to win the longest drive competition and Jan Boyling took the prize for nearest the pin.

Elsewhere, the senior men battled hard but were held to a 3-3 draw in their away fixture at Stevenage.
