Oakdale's main Mixed Competition, the Simpson Trophy, was held last weekend in excellent conditions & was won in very fine style by Bett & Kevin Middis with an unbeatable 66.5. In second place was the well established pairing of Marion Holliday & Douglas Whyte with a score of 70.
Another Oakdale tradition of the Ladies with Juniors competition was also held last weekend. The ladies were paired with juniors to compete for the Olive Windermer Trophy in a greensomes competition & the winners this year were Oliver Rushton & Penny Baxter with 40 points. In hot pursuit were Freddie Harwood & Jane Henderson with 39 points.
Both Juniors continued their run of good form with Oliver winning the Junior stableford with 49 points & reducing his club handicap 10 to 38, & Freddie's second place with 42 points reduced his handicap by 4 also to 38.
Congratulations to Shaun Field, Chris Henderson & Scott Brown who represented the Harrogate & District Union in the recent victorious match against the Huddersfield & Halifax Union, held at Oakdale.
The Ladies Scratch team completed their Yorkshire Inter Club matches against Abbeydale & Harrogate at Oakdale. Both matches were won comfortably & the team will now have to wait for all other matches to be completed before news of promotion to Division 1 is available. With only one match lost in the season, team captain Patsy Rochester is hopeful but nothing is certain! The A Team played away at Phoenix and won their match whilst the B Team travelled to Cave Castle & came away with a draw.
The Ladies played for the Lady Vice Captain’s prize last week with the overall winner being Nikki Moore with 40 points & a handicap reduction.
