Ian Ramsay returned a level par card of 72 to win the February Division One Medal on Sunday February 2. The four handicapper had birdies at the 3rd, 6th and 17th to offset dropped shots at the 8th, 15th and 18th. His net 68 was good enough to win by one from Paul Waters, who returned 80-11-69.
A highlight of the day was a hole-in-one by 11-handicap Robert Kingsley at the 16th, which is a 152-yard par-3 with the bottom of the pin hidden from view. His playing partner, Robert Bentley, said: "We all thought it could be good and knew it would be close. When there was no ball in sight we guessed it was in the hole - and it was."
It was the first competitive ace of the year - there were only two recorded in 2019.
Final scores: Division One - 68 Ian Ramsay (4); 69 Paul Waters (11); 70 Peter Allott (8) and Paul Pearce (6); 72 John Ward (11) and Michael Ford (6); 74 Bryan Muggeridge (9), Robert Kingsley (11) and Kevin Cooke (8); 75 Mark Henfield (6), Neil Elers (10), James Killa (12), Matt Wabe (5), Ross Sanford (4) and Dean Scott (4).

The Everard Gates Trophy is a winter eclectic where the best score recorded at each hole over six separate rounds counts. This year's winner is Jason Huggins, who plays off 3. An eagle two at the 5th boosted his card which also included eight birdies for a total of 62, 10 under par. He received half of his handicap for an overall score of 60.5 to win by two strokes from Steve Campbell (70-7.5=62.5).
