THE Worcestershire hosted two well-supported golf events with a county ladies' three-ball alliance and junior open.

After large interest from 25 clubs, the ladies’ event was won by a team from one of the smaller entries.

Jenny Poole, Nicky Perrins and Judy Davies, of Dymock Grange, triumphed with a stableford score of 80 points.

They finished two ahead of Jayne Freeman, Andrea Kierman and Leigh Peplow from Redditch.

Teams from The Vale and Hollywood took third and fourth place respectively with The Worcestershire's Lisa Digings, Jill Exell and Davina Taylor fifth on 74.

Scoring was tight at the top in the junior event.

Bromsgrove's Jack Mutton and Nathan Grant, both off a handicap of six, and Worcester Golf and Country Club’s Tom Deehan (19) all returned nett stableford scores of 40 points.

Mutton took the title on count-back from Deehan with Grant taking the best gross prize.

Ten-year-old Kirsten Porte, of Gaudet Luce, near Droitwich, and playing off a handicap of 25, secured third nett with 38.

A large entry for the midweek stableford at The Worcestershire resulted in a win for Mike Hanna (handicap 12) with 38 points.

Second in Division One was Brian Heap (7-37) with Gary Godwin (12-36) third.

Improving junior Harry Chadwick (14-37) took Division Two ahead of Darren Morris (16-33) and Keith McLaughlin (14-32).

First in Division Three was David Watson (18-35), who won on count-back from Graham Sinclair (23-35) with Andy Greene (18-34) third.

Captain Chris Urry enjoyed success for The Worcestershire ladies’ scratch team in their final match of the season.

Supported by Lucy Walton, Di Meakin, Sally Dare and Jackie Marks, her squad defeated a strong side from Coventry Finham at home 4-1.

This took their season’s total to four wins and just one loss.

The Malvern Wells club's men beat The Herefordshire 5-1 at home.

Wins were recorded by team captain Steve Bradshaw with Josh Marshall (4&3), Mark Read and Dave Turner (4&2), Mike Day and Mike Bothma (2&1), Andrew Fleming and Andrew Perkins (5&3) and Martin Field and Jim Heyburn (2&1).

Mike Bolton and Roger Blackwell lost a close match one-down.

On a blustery but dry day, The Worcestershire’s mixed team scraped a 5½ -4½ win over a strong visiting team from Cotswold Hills.

The winning pairs were ladies' captain Faith Tubb and her husband Mike, Brenda and Trevor Cox, Jill and Brian Piner, Joan and Gordon Herbert and April Wilding and Andy Greene.
