Last week saw plenty of sporting activity at Matlock Golf Club.

The Annual Social Day Stableford competition was held on Saturday. Men and women members filled the card, competing in fine weather. The greens looked and played very well and the course showed improvement from the recent bad weather. However, it still played long and with backward tee positions, good scores were hard to come by.

Overall winner with an impressive 44pts was Andy Binns. Other winners were Division One Nigel Furniss, Division Two Andrew Leach, Division Three Mark Barwick, Division Four Dr John Orchard, Ladies Silver Judith Graham, Ladies Bronze Louise Jones.

Winners of the Bader Cup were Kay Whyld and John Rebaudi.

In the Bank Holiday Stableford, the winners were: Division One Andrew Edwards, Division Two Tim Wilson, Division Three Mick Coupe, Division Four John Hopkinson, Veterans Brian Sanderson, Ladies winner Judith Graham.

In Division Two of the Inter Club Foresomes, captain Bob Whyld, Les Mooney, Ian Marr and John Telford beat Burton 5 and 2 at home.

The first round of the Ladies Tarrant Cup was won by Judith Graham with 35 pts.

The Captains Team managed by Ian Marr played at home beating Bakewell 5.5 to 0.5.
