The next stop on our tour took us to Wilmslow Golf Club. A good field set off on a beautiful autumn day, cloudless skies and ideal scoring conditions and so it proved for John Clarke (9) Worsley the winner, with 36pts. John is new to secretarial matters and The GCS, so it is no surprise that he leapt in to win whilst his game is still in good order! Runner up was Mike Gilyeat (8) Royal Birkdale, with 35 pts, who sportingly declared himself a non-runner for the Final, Birkdale requiring his attention that weekend. So the second qualifying spot went to Howard Jones (13) Llanymynech with 34pts. Third qualifier and a regular one at that was Martyn Senior (4) Hesketh 34pts and the final place at Rye went to Bob Hardy (12) Vale of Llangollen, also with 34pts and who could not believe his good fortune!
Our thanks as always go to the Captain, Committee and Members of Wilmslow as well as to host secretary Marjory Padfield and her staff for looking after us so well. We were well supported by Philip Vince of Majestic Crystal, Paul Mainstone of Jonas Clubminder and Dean Poynter from Eagle, all of whom had made a very long journey to be with us and whose support makes these days the undoubted success them are.
