Wedmore Golf Club have been in full competition mode, with two medals and a Stableford taking place within a week.

The ladies held their last qualifying competition of 2013 in cold and difficult conditions.

The star of the day was Sarah Matthews, who was the only player to beat par as she won Bronze Division by five points from Joan Peck, with Wendy Lucas a shot back in third.

In Silver Division, Gina Falcon led the way with an excellent score of 34 points, which again gave her a five-point lead over her nearest rivals.

Countback was required to separate them, with a birdie two on the final hole sufficient to give Gill Jones the runners- up spot from Aileen Robertson.

The seniors had a much better day for their medal on Monday, playing off the shorter winter tees and taking full advantage.

Tony Glover led the way with a nett 65 to win Division 1 but only by a single shot from Ivor Monelle, with Martin Easton a shot back in third.

Division 2 boasted two nett 65s, with John Cutter taking first place from Mike Peacock by virtue of a better back nine. Paul Burkhill, released from the cares of captaincy, was one shot back in third.

The fourth 65 of the day came in Division 3 from Dennis Howard, who finished five shots clear of James Robertson, with Phil Incledon a further shot back in third.

The club medal had even better scores, with Darryll Cornelius winning Division 1 with a nett 64, two better than Tom Smith, who edged out Jeremy Richards on countback.

Charles Woodard also scored 64 to win Division 2 and, in an identical result to Division 1, Russell Peck was two shots back, along with Brian Webber in third.

Marcello Di Mascio continued his run of good form to win Division 3 with a nett 65. Countback was again required to sort out the places, with Pete Beavan taking second place from Perry Snelgrove after both scored 68.
