On Saturday, the Men’s competition was the July Monthly Medal, sponsored by Walkers Ag-n-Vet, and contested by a field of 65 shivering players.
The A-Grade saw an in-form John Bet- land with a nett 72, beaten into runner-up by winner Brian Everest with a 71 nett. Ethan Gaffney with a nett 72 played well but missed out on count back.
The B-Grade winner was Jeff Haley with 70 nett, but he needed a count back to relegate Dave Earl into runner-up. The C-Grade was more clear-cut, with Mark Simmonds the Winner on 67 nett, followed by Brian Clarke as runner-up on 69 nett.
