Wonderful weekend for Wedmore Golf Club
Wedmore Golf Club enjoyed one of the most successful days in the club's 21-year history on Sunday.
The men's A team survived a tense clash against Burnham & Berrow to win the Somerset Bowl, while the ladies secured the Division 3 title in the Bristol Alliance League.
The ladies needed a tie against Bristol & Clifton to guarantee top spot and, after losing the first game, they won the next two and added a draw.
That left just one more victory needed and it was secured in the penultimate game to finished one point ahead of Bristol & Clifton in the table.
Meanwhile, the Somerset Bowl final at Weston-super- Mare could not have been much closer, with the match tied at 2-2 as the last game entered the final three holes with Wedmore 2-up.
However, a shortish putt for victory was missed on the 16th and Wedmore lost the 17th to take the match to the final hole.
Burnham drove out of bounds but Wedmore captain Tony Ribi hit a safe drive down the fairway and saw out the victory.
There was more success for the men's B team, who have gained promotion to the Avalon League.
Elsewhere, the final Open of the season, the Yonex Trophy, saw Mark Cornish win the men's competition with 41 points on Saturday. Bill Lander and Harry Edwards were on the same score but lost on countback, while Steve Cainey won Division 2 with 40 points.
The best score of the day was in the ladies' competition, which was won by Gill Jones with 43 points. Catherine Nicholson (36) and Deidre Wheadon (34) took the divisional wins.
On Thursday, there was a fine win in the medal by Diane Miller with a nett 69, but she is too young to win the Vets Vase, which went to Sue Tarry, whose nett 74 beat Aileen Robertson on countback.
Gordon Newbery had a nett 59 to win the Seniors Medal the previous Monday.
