Alice Barlow seized first place in the Junior Autumn Meeting on countback from Eloise Aldous They both returned gross 80. Alice was not too satisfied with her outward half of 45 but she suddenly burst into life, made a birdie at ten, almost had a hole in one at eleven but had to settle for a tap-in birdie, then lipped out at twelve, making a par four which could just as easily have been a third birdie. Completing the back nin e in 3 5 was pretty splendid.
Fifteen Junior girls plus their 'more senior' lady partners enjoyed a lovely day's golf at Fynn Valley in beautifulbright autumn sunshine. The course with its wonderful array of colours was in great condition.
On a cold, wet day at Bury St Edmunds, the teams from Woodbridge and Stowmarket set out to play the 36-hole final match to decide the winners of the Stearn Trophy. Woodbridge took the honours by two and a half matches to a half, but at no time was the outcome a foregone conclusion.

Hardly had the Fynn Valley ladies got their hands on the Seniors Jubilee Shield than they secured the Cranworth Trophy with a convincing 7-2 win over Ufford Park who played with determination but could not match their generally longer hitting opponents. Tony Tyrrell, Fynn Valley’s MD and Club Secretary said, with some pride, that the club’s ladies were having a stellar year.
