Andy Ferris produced two steady rounds to clinch the club championship title at Clevedon Golf Club.

Another full week of competitions took place at Clevedon Golf Club, culminating in the men’s club championship over the weekend.

Andy Ferris led the field at the halfway stage with an opening 76, enjoying a two-shot advantage over Graham Trenaman, Steve Lawrence and the veteran David Shields. Graham also took the lead in the nett competition with a score of 66, one ahead of Mark Crew.

The leading players came back the following day for the second round, but despite valiant efforts, no-one managed to displace the overnight leaders.

Gary Villis finished runner-up with a total of 156, but Andy maintained his grip on the title with a composed second round of 73 and a total of 149 giving a seven-shot margin of victory.

In the nett competition, Mark Crew dropped back into third spot on 142, and another consistent round of 71 put David Shields into second place. Graham took the nett title, a score of 71 resulted in a win by four shots. The Optimists Cup, donated in memory of Doug and Dot Clarke, was awarded to Jamie Osment.

The ladies’ Stableford was won by Laureen Angell with a total of 37 points which took her to the top of Division 2. Sandra Jones edged Linda Reynolds into second place in Division 1, both returned scores of 36 with Sandra winning on countback. Tracey Buckland was the Division 3 winner with a total of 29 points.
